Inside, the lorry has a very comfortable king sized bed which is raised up above the cab of the horse lorry so you can enjoy views over the fields. Step down from the bedroom area into the dining area, where you will find tea/coffee making facilities, table and chairs. If you’re desperate to squeeze in a couple of extras, there’s a sofa bed which can accommodate a further two people.  On the other side of the field is a composting loo and shower.

Patio doors from the lorry lead out to a decked area where you can sunbathe, eat breakfast on fine days, and admire wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. You may well find sheep and their lambs just below you.
