  • Sleeps: 2

Ideal for a fun-loving couple in need of a laid-back country escape, Joseph the Multi-Colour Dream Coach is a cheerful single-decker coach, perfectly parked in a Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that’s close to the Cornish border.

You may even recognise the friendly family-run site – Fosfelle Country House – since it’s been featured on TV several times, including Escape to the Country, and Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing.

As if that wasn’t enough to tempt you, you’ll arrive to a welcoming, individually named committee of insanely cute alpacas, inquisitive miniature donkeys, and cheeky pygmy goats, along with lively a ducks and numerous chickens. There are also plenty of free-roaming wildlife to keep an eye on throughout your stay in the form of grazing deer, bats, tawny owls, and kingfishers… amongst many others.

Step aboard the colourful coach itself to discover all the home comforts you could possibly need. There is a cosy double bed at the back (always the best spot on any bus or coach!), whilst a comfy, cushion-covered sofa and a wood-burning stove means you can snuggle up in front of the TV together after a long day exploring the countryside.

There is a kitchenette for whipping up romantic suppers, complete with a microwave, oven, and fridge, and a dining table and chairs to enjoy them at – though you could always head outside and take in the sunset as you dine, instead!

Just in case you were worrying about where you’ll freshen up, you’ll have a private shower room at your disposal, too.

In such a peaceful and naturally beautiful spot as this, you’d be forgiven for not wanting to move a muscle all holiday long. Instead, get lost in that book you never seem to find time for at home, or sit back with a cuppa and watch the animals go about their daily lives.
