Caravanning, but not as you know it

Romany CaravanAfter my blog back in May about Glamping in Cwmcarn near Caerphilly, it seems that the phenomenon is starting to catch on:

We all know the scenario - caravan holiday, cramped conditions, lashing rain, howling wind and a trudge across a sodden field to get to the showers and toilets.

But now you can forget all and stay in an authentic Romany Caravan.  A traditional Vardo, the caravan used to travel the lanes of the Welsh countryside but has now found a permanent home on a sheep farm near Bridgend. 

You may still find conditions a bit cramped if you bring the entire extended family, but it is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic getaway as you snuggle in the caravan, watching the stars and listening to the sounds of the countryside.  Anyway the rest of the family can stay in the nearby self catering house or pitch a tent or two next door.

And no more trudging across soggy fields either as the caravan comes complete with a cabin housing toilet, hot water, shower and washing facilities.  There is also a terrace and barbeque area and an internet connection meaning you don't have to get away from it all if you don't want to.

Caravan holidays will never seem the same again.
