Rosie the gypsy caravan

This is slightly different to my normal beauty/fashion type posts, but I just wanted to show you a few photos from my mini 4-day holiday a little while ago :)

Me and Josh went on a little break to The New Forest and stayed in an old fashioned gypsy caravan, called Rosie! The caravan was amazing, it was so intricately decorated both inside and out. There was a full size double bed inside covered in velvet & lace throws and cushions. The curtains were all heavy velvet with glass beads hanging from the bottom. It had been converted so that it had working electric lamps and plug sockets, much more like 'glamping' than we expected it would be (I'm not complaining)! 

We spent the daytimes travelling round the local villages, seeing what we found and sampling a selection of cream teas. In one village we found a farmer's market and a vintage fair which was amazing. I bought a Stratton powder compact, some cat-eye sunglasses and a necklace which I featured here. We also visited Josh's sister and her boyfriend as they live close, went to the pub for lunch then found a lake with wild horses and donkeys which just wondered up to us!

The weather was amazing the whole time we were there, so we spent loads of time on the beach which I loved. I've always lived right in the center of England, so the beach has always been a rare treat for me!

It was such a nice relaxing break, I wish I was back there now! You can find the website for the caravan here, if you're interested in staying there yourself or just seeing more photos :)

Have you stayed in any different holiday homes/caravans/tents or anything like that? I'm looking for somewhere exciting for our next holiday so send your recommendations over if you have any! x

  5. Ah this looks like a lovely trip, I've always wanted to stay in a 'proper' caravan, but neither me or my boyfriend drive so it makes it difficult to get to places which are out of the way like this (: xx

  6. I had no idea you could stay in these, so cute! I love that she's called Rosie too. It looks gorgeous and quaint, perfect for a mini holiday xx

  7. Ahhh I'm literally 30 minutes drive from the New Forest and it is totally beautiful!! Xx

  8. I live right beside the New Forest and I had no idea they had these caravans. Which company did you stay with? I'd love to do something like this! ♥

  9. This caravan looks amazing, glad you had a rain free weekend :)
