Original description for hire listing:
Constance has a beautifully rustic, solid wood interior and is big enough for a family to enjoy a comfortable holiday, long or short.

Panelled in pine with characterful oak furniture, retro enamel crockery, generous windows and driftwood colours, you'll feel like you're in the great outdoors even when you're inside.

She has an enormous king size bed, full kitchen, a beautiful wood stove and a child’s bunk/hammock that stretches over the front seats. She is on a long wheel base and has five belted seats, so if you throw in a tent there's room for up to five people to run away together.

She even has a gas hob, grill and oven, so whatever your favourite food, you can have it all holiday long - add on the optional camping chairs and table, and eating al fresco will be a delight.

Oh, and did we mention the 240v electrical hookup to charge and run everyone's gadgets (if you want... or deny its existence if you're looking for a digital detox!).
