Description

Betsey was originally a horse drawn tram dating back to the 1890’s, making her the oldest of the three wagons. Betsey was converted from a tram to a holiday home, called the ‘Bungavan’ during the 1930’s in Prestwood, a village in the Chilterns. She was let out weekly during the 1930’s and 1940’s and is possibly one of the earliest glamping holiday homes in the UK . She has the original cupboards and dresser from those pre-war years.
She has been sympathetically restored, and now the 120 year old tram provides an opportunity to enjoy a holiday with a difference.
The design of the tram provides 2 outside, covered areas to sit and relax whilst enjoying the view.
