Description

This Reading style gypsy wagon was reputedly the most luxurious of the various gypsy wagons built and lived in from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Traditionally they were mainly built for the wealthier horse traders and gypsy kings and queens. This particular wagon is thought to date back to around 1910.
All the original features have been kept in this wagon, and it must be emphasized that the raised bed is only 3′ 2″ wide and 5’10” long. However there is also an additional sleeping area below which provides extra sleeping space for guests.
The original cast iron stove, glass fronted cupboards, bench seats and chest of drawers make it a beautifully quaint place to stay. The wagon has no electricity, just a battery light, and is equipped with a camping gas stove and basic utensils, allowing you to experience Romany living quarters with the modern bonus of a private toilet/ shower room a short distance from the wagon.
