Billy the Snail

Make a booking



Billy is a wonderful, cosy hideaway for a couple to enjoy. He is a unique camper van - a hybrd of a 1970 Morris Minor Pick-Up and a 1960 Fisher Holivan Junior Caravan, and is affectionately called 'The Snail' - as he carries his home on his back!

While he may be small, Billy is surprisingly spacious inside. On-board he has a kitchenette with lots of storage, and a dining area with wrap-around bench seating. On site he comes complete with a gorgeous, fully furnished five metre bell tent and full sized bed, so you can enjoy Billy purely for cooking, dining and relaxing.

Outside, Billy has a hand-made, reclaimed wood table with parasol and chairs. 

Sorry no Pets allowed on board Billy or in his tent.

There is no other glamping experience like this available in the UK.
