Pett Showman’s Wagon

Quirky and eclectic accommodation for romantic couples in search of blissful seclusion, nestled amongst ancient woodland in the heart of ‘1066 countryside'.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 1 night

The whimsical and imaginative accommodation you’ll discover at Pett Showman’s Wagon actually comprises two beautiful wagons…

…plus, a piano room, a summer house, and a huge former army tent that once featured in the film ‘King Arthur’, now a perfect space for private meditation, yoga, or tai chi!

Nestled within magical ancient woodland in the sleepy village of Pett, you’ll be surrounded by views of peaceful ‘1066 countryside’, that lead your gaze all the way out to sea.  

(Seriously, what better location for a blissfully secluded, ultra-romantic break with your loved one?)

The first, spacious, wagon is the setting for relaxed open plan studio living and snoozing; furnished with two squishy chairs, a Smart TV, a kitchen and dining area, and a gorgeous kingsize bed that’s ideal for lazy lie-ins.

Just a few steps away is a refreshing shower room and separate WC, along with some outdoor seating and a firepit for al fresco conversation in your woodland garden – though you could always retreat to the tent for some quiet contemplation, or head across to the piano room and tinkle those ivories!

In the mood for a snack? The summer house is home to a commercial pizza oven, while the exquisite 1940’s showman’s wagon is an ideal haven for relaxing vintage-style; equipped with a warming wood-burner to curl up in front of, with a post-pizza tipple nicely in hand.
