Meadows Wagon is a beautifully converted hay wagon, now a shepherd's hut, or perhaps even its fancier cousin - the showman's wagon. 

Sleeping two, it has a table and wooden seating on one end and a double bed on the other, all hidden behind a traditional romantic curtain. The wagon also has a wood burner, a double hob, and a small kitchen worktop. There is electricity, but no Wi-Fi or running water.
