I have had an interest in, and worked on, horse drawn vehicles
of one kind or another for over 20 years and have always had
a soft spot for gypsy caravans - or wagons to be correct,
and can still vividly remember my first sight of a group of
bow top wagons being pulled by heavy horses passing through
the Lincolnshire village in which we lived - a rarity
Some years later, we had the opportunity to buy a bow top
caravan, which we sited in our meadow and it has served for
many years as a playhouse for our children, and as they grew
older, somewhere to have their friends for campfires, parties
and sleep overs.
We noticed the 'grown ups' also tended to gravitate
in that direction for picnics, barbecues and just generally
lazing on summer afternoons with a glass of wine ..
And when night fell, the caravan became a magical place to
sleep in - close to nature and the elements, yet safe,
dry and cosy.
We have had a huge amount of enjoyment as a family in and
around our gypsy caravan, and it has attracted so much favourable
comment from children and adults alike, that we decided to
start The Gypsy Caravan Company and build a caravan
that was aimed at the whole family .. after all, why should
kids have all the fun?
