Cheerful, quirky, and featuring grand views of Bodiam Castle, Circus Retreat is the ideal escape for a couple looking for something a bit different from the norm.

A short stroll from the local farm shop and pub (that’s lazy afternoons sorted!) this lovingly restored 1980’s showman’s van is filled with creature comforts.

Head up the steps to the pretty, furnished veranda – the perfect spot for evening drinks, with far-reaching countryside views – and into the welcoming living area.  Here you’ll find squishy armchairs and a TV with DVD player, for cosy evenings in.

Wander along to the kitchen and dining area when you’re in the mood for a snack…and when it’s time to turn in, simply head for the downy double bed at the other end of the van!  There’s also a bathroom with shower-over bath, perfect for freshening up after a day out exploring.

Where to go?  Well, the nearby market town of Rye makes for a charming day out, bustling with independent shops and cafés – or why not jump on the Kent and Sussex Steam Railway to Tenterden?  There are beaches in easy reach, too.

Wherever you choose, the lure of your Circus Retreat may prove far too hard to resist by evening, as you pitch up on the veranda and watch the sun set.  Simple bliss.
