Further details indoors


The carriage was originally built in 1894 as a fairground owners home which toured in the West Country and has been lovingly preserved by the present owners to include beautiful mahogany woodwork and crystal ornate mirrors. The inside is cosy with seating for two in front of a vintage tiled fireplace with imitation log burner. There are plenty of home comforts, books, TV, DVD and hi fi.

To one end of the carriage is the bedroom with a fixed raised bed. The bed is smaller than a normal double (6ft 1" x 4ft) but this adds to the romantic feel. White lace bedlinen and painted woodwork make this a truly cosy hideaway.


The carriage is approached via steps onto a raised decking area which has an overhead enclosed veranda with views into the valley and across to Bodiam Castle and the apple orchards. The decking area has outside seating with comfortable wicker chairs and a table for a relaxing breakfast or evening glass of wine.

The kitchen and bathroom facilities are located in two separate adjacent buildings immediately outside of the carriage. The quirky thatched kitchen/diner is fully equipped for self-catering during your stay, complete with sink, small cooker, fridge, storage cupboards and a railway carriage style small table. The windows can be left wide open during warmer days but also allowing meals to be prepared in comfort but undercover when the weather is not so good. On the opposite side of the deck is the modern bathroom/wet room with WC, sink and shower.

Hampers can be organised directly with the owners who will fill it with local meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, much of the produce coming from their own farm.

Additional amenities

Towels, bedlinen.

What a lovely location for a honeymoon and as you say glamorous glamping. Good to hear that you enjoyed the delights of Chapel Down Vineyard which is among a number of vineyards that we are lucky enough to have in our back garden!... We have some wonderful National Trust properties to visit during a stay as well as the Kent & Sussex Steam Railway which is about a 5 min walk from The Prince Regent.

Bramley and Teal wish you lots of very happy years ahead and might see you for your first wedding anniversary again!
