Rosebud

© Barefoot Caravans

 

We are soon going to be taking delivery of Rosebud, a beautifully-designed luxury caravan hand built by Barefoot Caravans in the Cotswolds. We’ve been camping in our lovely bell tent for years, but we have always wanted to explore Scotland (and especially the Highlands). Wild camping is legal there, and what could be better than waking up next to a Scottish loch? The only thing stopping us was, frankly, the bathroom issue (as well as the midges and the weather). We had never even thought of a caravan-then we happened across Barefoot Caravans, and fell in love with them!

 

The interior is compact, but there's more than enough space for two. She has a full hot air heating system and hot water supply, a fitted kitchen including fridge/freezer, shower/toilet. Best of all, they all work whether you are on a campsite with an electricity supply or out in the wilds somewhere as there is a big on board battery that is charged when you are towing. There's also a full-sized double bed, which converts into a settee and dining table. There's a radio, but no TV or DVD player (so if you want that, you will have to bring your own). For a romantic holiday, it's perfect. She's also very light, so it's very easy to move her around using the grab handles.

Rosebud comes complete with all the glassware, cutlery and crockery you will need, together with your choice of wine and milk. We will also supply the linen and towels, fill all the tanks, provide the gas bottles, and a 25 m EHC hook-up to connect to a power source if you're on a caravan site. All you have to do is drive her away and have fun!

She's a streamlined retro design, and because she's lightweight, small and narrow she can be towed by most cars easily (even quite small ones), and can get to places most caravans can’t reach. For the full specification go here, but even if you’ve never towed a caravan before you will be fine with this one. To give you an idea, Rosebud is 1.92 m wide; our Volvo estate is 1.8 m wide (not including the mirrors) so you don't need mirror extenders either. If you're interested in hiring Rosebud for a weekend or a week (or are thinking of buying one and want to try before you buy), email us and we will let you know as soon as we have more details.

Rosebud comes with:

  • 2 ring gas hob and sink with black glass lids

  • Stylish kitchen and wall units with solid oak tops

  • Fridge with freezer

  • Truma Combi 4e heating and hot water system (works from gas or electricity)
