The Quirky Glamping Bus

The Space

This is a thoughtfully converted single-decker bus sourced from a local bus company. It sleeps four people with one double bed and a set of full sized bunk beds. The solid fuel stove will keep you nice and toasty on those chillier nights, and off grid, battery powered led lights and tilly lamps will give it that homely feel! There is a handmade, bespoke oak kitchen with an old farmhouse belfast sink running cold water where you can put together a romantic evening meal or some snacks for your day’s hike!

 

The quaint dining area, looking out over the field, and a comfy distressed vintage sofa make this the perfect place to lounge around, chill out, or use as a base to explore some of the beautiful walks in the area!

 

There is a hot gas powered shower in a private separate block along with a custom built compost toilet all situated in a lush 2 acre field all to yourself!

 

Furry friends are welcome if well behaved as there are chickens in the garden of Bowercroft and occasionally cattle in neighbouring fields. The area is stock fenced but not dog proof if they are escape artists!  

 

You can bring extra tents when renting the bus for a small additional cost but unfortunately there can be no large groups as there are some neighbours.

 

There is a firepit and kindling can be foraged in the hedgerows that border the field.

 

There is no wifi or mains electricity so it is perfect to get away from it all! But don’t worry too much as the phone signal is generally not too bad.

 

A large cooler box made from an upcycled fridge is situated by the shower block and ice packs are supplied as requested. All linen, towels and kitchen equipment is provided so you can just turn up and relax.

 

The Neighbourhood

This is a rural retreat set on an organic dairy farm that was one of the first in Shropshire and has been running since the 1970s.

 

It is a great spot to admire the local wildlife undisturbed by intense farming or pesticides! We have a resident woodpecker, and if you keep an eye out, foxes can be seen running across the field at night. As well as this, a colony of bees are kept at Bowercroft to help all the wildlife thrive!

Is is a small, friendly village location. There is easy bus access to neighbouring villages and small towns with shops and restaurants.

 

If you don’t fancy the bus ride there is also a gastropub in Hindford itself. The Number 34 is situated a stone's throw from Llangollen canal which is great for walks or cycling.
