Wagon in Somerset: This quirky vardo, Burton wagon, is nestled in a quiet corner or a working farm, in Somerset's beautiful Quantock Hills. A truly unique glamping experience!
This cute as a button wagon has been carefully restored to create the most unique glamping experience. With an abundance of traditional charm and quirky character, Dulcie really is the sweetest retreat that allows you to reconnect with nature and enjoy life's simplest pleasures. The little wagon is perfect for a romantic break away or for a parent looking to take their child on a unique glamping staycation. Staying in Dulcie will be a truly unforgettable experience. The location surrounding your hidden haven will send a wave of relaxation through your body. Enjoy soft summer evenings out around the fire-pit. Dulcie really is a tonic of the soul.
As you step inside your little wonder you will be wowed by Dulcie's cheerful interiors. The soft furnishings echo the history of this traditional wagon. The super cosy raised double bed, provides the perfect place to rest your head, but if you do prefer a little extra space, then underneath on ground level you'll find a second small double. There's no need to worry about being chilly as there's a wood-burner inside, just waiting to be lit on a cool autumnal evening. Light the fire and cosy in with a pack of cards and a good bottle of red wine… It's time to switch off from life's everyday pressures.
This glamping site has been carefully designed so you have everything you need, for a comfortable stay. The off-grid kitchen and bathroom sit opposite the wagon. The kitchen has two gas hobs, a toaster and a kettle. You'll be able to whip up a tasty meal for two in no time, but if you prefer to cook out in the open, there is a barbecue for you to fire up and grill your favourite fresh produce. There's a large cool box for you to use during your glamping holiday, but you are also very welcome to store your produce in the small fridge in the owner's studio kitchen. There is mains drinking water via the outdoor sink, which also feeds the shower. Next door to the kitchen you will find the bathroom. The shower is powered by gas and the Thetford porta loo is easy to use.
The outdoor space is truly a countryside idyll. Your own private garden looks upon unspoilt green pastures. Spend your evenings gathered around the fire-pit, with a mug of steaming hot chocolate. Don't forget to bring the marshmallows and why not treat yourself to wood-fired S'mores. Dulcie is nestled in the corner of the owners' working farm where you will also find Lamb's Tale Shepherd's Hut, Duck's Puddle Shepherd's Hut and Coombe Lodge. This site is perfect if you are looking to go away as a larger group, but would still like your own space. In this unique location you also have the option to book various beauty treatments and therapies from a fully qualified professional sports injury and beauty therapist. These treatments take place in the purpose-built studio on site - please ask us if you are interested in booking and we will happily provide you with all the details.
Dulcie is an off-grid hideaway. The wagon has enough power for ambient lighting and phone charging. The shower is powered by gas and the toilet is a Thretford porta-loo.
Out and About
The Quantock Hills is a very special place with incredible vistas of woodland and open moorland. For the nature lovers among us, you will be spoilt for choice as there are so many opportunities to see wildlife in the natural world. Keen cyclists will also be in heaven as there are a huge number of off-road areas to explore - there is even a track right from the farm up into the hills. From the top of the hills, on a clear day, you can see right across the Bristol Channel to the hills of south Wales in one direction and across the Vale of Taunton towards Exmoor National Park in the other.
Just four miles away is the coast at Kilve, with striking rock formations and sea-smoothed pebbles. For a sandy beach, head to Blue Anchor near Minehead and to make a day of it, also be sure to head in to Dunster which is a fascinating medieval town, dominated by a National Trust Castle. Slightly further afield is the rugged beauty of Exmoor - if you visit in the summer then enjoy picnics near tranquil rivers, or if autumn is your season then cosy up in traditional pubs, in front of the fire.
