Our three Bedford horseboxes (two are from the 1960s, with one slightly newer 1980 model) have been refurbished to a very high spec with ‘metro tiled’ wet rooms, Hansgrohe power showers, flushing toilets, LED lighting, memory foam mattresses, goose down pillows, fabric from Designers Guild, flat screen TVs .The vehicles have been clad with a deeply polished mahogany and trimmed with Brooks’ signature navy blue. Each has its own private glass-sided terrace with fuchsia painted corner stilts, foliage screening and courtyard views.
Horsey guests are sure to enjoy the extra design details to give a nod to the boxes equestrian heritage; from vintage horse prints on the tongue and groove walls to knotted lead ropes tying up the bunk beds and bookshelves housing kids classics such as National Velvet and Black Beauty.
The smaller box (approx 80sqft) sleeps two comfortably in a double mezzanine bed, whilst the other two vehicles both sleep up to four (two adults and two pre-teen children) with a slightly larger living area (approximately 140 sqft) featuring fold down bunk beds and the double bed in the ‘Luton’ over the cab.
The glamping area is situated in the courtyard of the hotel, adjacent to the coach house and a short walk from the main hotel, the swimming pool and relaxed terraced areas.
Although the vehicles are fixed to the ground, young guests will enjoy climbing into the cab to do some pretend driving, whilst couples and parents are sure to enjoy the convenience of the hotel’s facilities just a short walk away- including a restaurant, bar, children’s games room, gym, Swedish barrel sauna (with bucket shower) and outdoor swimming pool ( heated June – September)
