ROSIE THE GYPSY CARAVAN
Open the wrought iron gate and step through the wall of honey suckle to find Rosie, a 1934 Romany showman’s wagon. Rosie would have been home to itinerant fairground workers and performers after the turn of the century when steam engines became available to tow their equipment and caravans.
Decorated in original Romany embellishments, Rosie is simply charming. An antique eiderdown rests upon the cosy 6 by not quite 4-foot bed and pretty lace curtains originating from Great Granny’s tablecloth are drawn on brass rails. A vintage music box and a wonderful collection of caravan related storybooks adorn the shelves. Look through the cupboards and you will find vintage china, tea and coffee and a fresh water container.
Rosie sits in a small, private courtyard in the corner of Fanner’s field and enjoys a vista of Melbury and Fontmell Down. There is a BBQ and table and chairs for you to enjoy lazy summer evenings whilst sipping cider, perusing local maps or perhaps enjoying a game of cards.
Due to semi-retiring, Rosie is very reluctantly for sale! Please get in touch with us if you are interested.
