Willow 1957 Vintage Caravan

 

1957 Bluebird Sun Parlour

Willow sleeps 2 adults and 2 children – one small double and two singles.

Willow is a 50’s girl with accurate era fittings and décor. She is a very rare model which we were lucky to find, she is an all original girl, lovingly cared for by the same family from new. She is incredibly well preserved and still boasts all her original features including oak veneer furniture, gas lamps and a coal stove. Willow is situated in the lower garden tucked away in a quiet spot with her neighbours the Bluebells; our flock of six hens that lay the eggs that you will find in your welcome pack. She has a small kitchenette with the original gas cooker which has an oven and two burners, and a larder cupboard in which we have installed a modern fridge and microwave.

The living area has seating on both sides around a freestanding folding table. The seating will also provide sleeping for two, therefore Willow is perfect for couples or 2 adults and 2 children. The small double bed which drops down from a hideaway cupboard has a new handmade mattress to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep. Hotel quality linen with luxury duvet for the double bed and luxurious sleeping bags for the children are also provided together with pillows and soft fluffy towels.  During the day with the bed folded away there is a spacious area to sit you can spend a cosy afternoon reading or playing one of the many games to be found in the cupboards.

Also provided is a vast selection of watercolour paints, paper and brushes etc, together with books on learning to paint with watercolours. Willow is just the right place for you to go back to the more relaxed way of life that she was born into and because we feel it important that you have the best experience possible we have not added some of the modern distractions such as television or Wi-Fi. Your time in Willow can be one of peace and tranquillity, a place to recharge your batteries and to slow down and take in our beautiful scenery. If you fancy doing a bit of bird watching we have provided binoculars and books on identifying birds, garden wildlife and insects.

At the far end of the garden is a small raised patio with a bench which overlooks the levels, it is a perfect spot for a bit of contemplation or just reading a good book. In the summer evenings when the sky is clear the stars are a sight to behold as we do not suffer from light pollution in the countryside. The garden is also regularly visited by bats and it is a delight to sit in the garden when it is “dumpsy dark” to watch the bats whizzing around as they catch the evening insects.

Shower facilities: the cabin is just a short distance from Willow and has a WC and shower, a sink for washing up and a washing machine and tumble dryer. Cooking facilities: in addition to the stove in Willow, there is a fire pit with a tripod and pot as well as a barbecue with large comfortable benches around the fire where you can relax away a summers evening.

Stunning setting in the heart of the Somerset Levels Willow is tucked away behind our self-catering cottages known as Withy Cottages and is situated down a quiet lane in the village of Huish Episcopi. Huish Episcopi is on the edge of the beautiful Somerset Levels where they combine peace and tranquility with the convenience of being easy walking distance to Langport and its pubs, restaurants and shops.

Ideal for weekly, mid-week or weekend stays, couples on a romantic holiday or special interests such as walking, bird watching, fishing and visiting the many national trust houses and historic monuments nearby. Huish Episcopi and Langport are situated at the heart of the beautiful Somerset Levels mid-way between the county towns of Taunton and Yeovil. The ancient beauty and diverse wildlife of the area makes it one of the landscapes that have inspired many artists and photographers as well as drawing visitors from all over the world. The ancient Muchelney Abbey is less than 2 miles from Huish Episcopi and Glastonbury Tor is only 12 miles away.
