our gypsy caravan

Our gypsy waggon is now safely tucked up & covered for winter.
We bought this waggon in 2009 (see attached photos for how it looked then) from a chap in Norfolk.
It was over 100 years old, and needed a lot of work- the inside was completely empty. With the help of a local carpenter, and lots of historical books on gypsy caravans, we worked on it for several months & used lots of reclaimed bits including a chest of drawers, some dresser shelves and a piece of carved wood my dad rescued from Greece.
The tiny stove was made by our friend Metal Mark as a portable mini demo to show customers how he recycles old gas bottles to make woodburners, but it fitted so perfectly we had to have it!
The ‘donkey shed’ next door provides space to cook & eat, and is so named as it once housed a donkey named Shandy. You may still hear the bray of a donkey though from Bluebell who lives in the neighbouring smalllholding
