Meet Tipsy

She’s our new caravan. Well, from 1994, so she’s been around the block a few times. We collected her from Co. Tipperary today.  Her previous owner was a granny who frequented campsites in Tramore and Trabolgan (yay Cork!)  She gave it to her grandson to sell & put the money towards a car for himself. Very sweet, and great for us, as she was a deal.


Tipsy will spend the summer in the courtyard outside the house. In fact, as we renovate, she will likely be our home-behind-the-house. I’m sure it will be just like being on holiday. For the first five minutes anyway… Clearly we’ve gone mad.

Hopefully by summer 2017 she’ll be ready to host some glampers (glamping = glamorous + camping!). We’ll let you know when she’s up on Airbnb.

Some Pinterest inspiration for the future:
