Gypsy's Rest provides stylish glamping accommodation in a secluded area of meadow with woodland either side. A Reading-style gypsy caravan is accompanied by a large shepherd’s hut to provide a fully equipped kitchen area (including hot running water and wood-burning range) and an extra sleeping and living space. The interiors of both units have been lovingly furnished in vintage-style. A private loo and shower building is easily accessible at the back of the shepherd's hut. We hope you can make good use of the hammock and deck chairs during your stay and the Kadai is perfect for barbeques and camp fires.
