Overview

About the property

A basic caravan, with fresh bed linen and towels, parked on the side garden with cooking facilities and utensils, bottled water, camping toilet, use of shower in main house at £3 a shower, microwave, toaster and kettle. The picture of the caravan is not in its actual location. This is an outdoor space, but it is homely and if you like to caravan and camp this is a great cheap overnight base with which to go out and explore Dorset, it is not a 5* hotel. I run a dog sitting business from home, and am very friendly and welcoming.

FRONT WINDOW BROKEN AT MOMENT HENCE REDUCED PRICE, IT IS CURRENTLY BEING FIXED, SEE PICTURE. Specialist Vintage Caravans, Royale Touranger 1970's. A unique journey back into holidaying set within the beautiful village of Cerne Abbas in Hardy's Dorset countryside. Close to the beach and county town of Dorchester. The village has three pubs all serve food, a shop - which sells everything, a cafe, bus to Dorchester and the most amazing soft rolling countryside and stream running through the village and the Chalk Giant man.

Trains from Dorchester and Sherborne to London, and our own reasonably priced taxi company in the village. The buses use a flag it down system, bit like London cabs. bus timetables available on the dorset for you website its the 216.
