Husband had organised this as we saw soemthing similar on TV. Yes I was surprised and eventually came around to this unusual setting for a night away. We stayed 2 nights, sleeping in the Romany Caravan with other facilities in a seperate chalet. Yes you had to 'climb' up for your bed, but comfy once there. Both were very clean... More

Just returned from a short break at Romany Dreams to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. We were so lucky to time this perfectly with the first sunny weekend of spring as well. Romany Dreams is a beautifully restored traditional gypsy wagon. The attention to detail is just second to none - everything is so carefully put together and clearly very... More

This was a lovely surprise by my boyfriend, the cabin fire meant it was warm and cosy even though it was coming to the end of November. It is obvious the wagon/cabin are loved as they were both spotlessly keen and every attention to detail had been made. Lorraine made us feel so welcome and was an attentive host. We... More

We stayed for 1 night at Romany Dreams at the end of a long weekend break and we certainly saved the best until last. We arrived and were greeted by Lorraine who is a wonderful hostess and she showed us the beautiful Romany caravan which is spotlessly clean and has a woodburner, kettle and tea and coffee facilities. The caravan... More

This has to be one of the most unique bed and breakfast experiences available and one that should be on most people’s bucket list. The setting was purely rural and peaceful with an abundance of natural wildlife. The Gypsy wagon was exceptionally clean and comfortable, it even had an interior wood burning stove, all prepared for use. A three course... More
