Welcome to

Vintage Vacations on the Isle of Wight where much fun can be had spending a night or two in one of these.

A choice of 10 retro Airstream caravans, all refurbished in true vintage style.

Yes, folks, that's where we were at the weekend, and a jolly time was had by all!  We set off on Friday afternoon (boys finish at 1pm), managed to catch an early ferry and we arrived safe and sound at our Airstream for 5pm.  A quick 'tour' by Fraser, the owner and we were then left to our own devices to enjoy our weekend.

Here's ours -

First, sit down and savour a complementary cream tea, yum yum, while the boys ran round playing badminton (racquet's provided).  We'll save the miniature bottle of Babycham for later!

Anyone for tea?

Let's take a tour -

Boys' had a bed each with the bathroom at the end (fully working shower and diddy sink).  Toilet facilities were housed in a portabcabin further down the field.

A bit of evening reading -

Cheery bunting -

Lounge area (our bed)

Fully working original cooker -

Some friends' to share our weekend!

We really did enjoy the experience, even the walking across the field in a hoodie and polka dot PJ's!  The Isle of Wight was lovely too.  I'll share what we did later on in the week.

Oh lucky you! Looks adorable. Was it warm at night? I love camping and the whole in a field thing, but at this time of year it gets a bit parky. This could be the solution. Lou x
