Freya

Live your dream of running away with the circus! Freya has been owned by two generations of travelling theatre and circus performers and it shows. She transports you far beyond the everyday from the moment you step inside - bedecked from top to toe in vintage fabrics, hand-patterned metalwork and mellow, hazy colours.

Designed for life on the road, you’ll find everything for a comfortable romantic break or longer-term exploring. On nippy nights, you can snuggle into that cosy bed or curl up with a book by the woodburning stove/oven, and on sunny mornings, throw open the stable door for a fresh air breakfast.

Owner Natalia still uses Freya for circus work so she keeps her well maintained, meaning you can be confident that she’s reliable as well as pretty.
She is a boho dream of a van with a Tempur double bed & log burner

Travelling with Children

Freya is suitable for travelling with children.

The Van has a double bed, a full size single bed, and smaller bench bed made out of the dining area that would be suitable for a child say 5-10 years old. (no edge though). The floor space is pretty big so you would probably fit a travel cot on the floor.
Let me know if you need child car seat/booster seat and I could try and source for you if it is tricky to bring with you.

Pet Policy

We have a ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy with pets. In other words we’re happy for you to take your dog as long as you bring it back in a condition that we never would have known!
