The Red Bus is one of the most unique places you could spend a weekend. Set in a beautifully secluded spot adjoining a paddock, with the friendly goats as neighbours! Much skill and imagination has been employed to renovate this 1982 Metro bus to create an attractive and practical living space on both floors. It really is a characterful and cosy space with charming decor and furnishings, all designed with comfort in mind.
However, what makes this place truly special is its setting - there is wildlife in abundance with lots of wonderful walks right on your doorstep. Simply walk through the owners land and you are in Hangman's wood, where you can walk for miles undisturbed. The views over the wooded hills of the Forest of Dean are not to be beaten.
You will soon find yourself sinking into the countryside lifestyle while taking in the fresh air and breathtaking views. NB maximum standing height on the bus is 68 inches (1m 73).
