A truly unique hand crafted living space can be found within this restored & converted 1967 Bedford horse lorry Douglas. Buried within the Norfolk wildlife, you'll find the hidden off grid eco-friendly space. With 1/2 an acre of wildflower set outside the unit, the space is designed to be shared with nature - the perfect get away.

Just a few steps from the trucks rear door there is a private modern shower unit and a separate, comfortable, well maintained compost toilet. Both facilities boasting sky views (we wont spoil the surprise). Just in-front of the outdoor decking area is a sizeable fire pit, complete with a seating area and removable griddle - a perfect space for al fresco dinning.

Within the lorry kitchen area there is a 4-hob cooker grill, kitchen sink and work top. In this rustic setting cooking is a different experience and some of our guests have even proved baking is possible. The repurposed loading ramp decking area then provides the perfect setting for eating under the moonlit sky or taking shade under the boat sail from the sun. The French doors can be pushed wide open to extend the floor space to the loading ramp decking area, with steps leading to the fire pit. When the sun goes in, power from the sun’s rays throughout the day is stored in the battery bank and recycled back around the site for the many subtle

lighting options, USB charging and pumping water.

As the weather turns cooler, the wood burner can transform the lorry from a summer retreat into a cosy romantic seasonal get away. The woodburner gets the truck toasty in no time and, with the views changing with the seasons it's the perfect viewing spot for wildlife.

Tucked away above the cab is a cosy super king size bed, once you’re up there it’s hard to want to get down. Underneath there is a small bed tucked away, suitable for a child or small adult. The sofa bench seat can make another cosy sleeping area (you'll need to provide your own bedding if using the sofa bench). You can even take to the wheel and explore the restored drivers cab. A perfect place to note wildlife. Butterflies, roe deer, hare, badgers, hedge-hog, buzzard, red kite will all often be seen - Sometimes all just in one afternoon.
