It was our one year wedding anniversary last week (where has this year gone!?) so we travelled across the water for a little getaway to the Isle of Wight.
We wanted our stay to be memorable, so we decided to hunt down some unique accommodation and unique is what we found! After staying in an airstream caravan on top of a hotel in bristol for valentines, we simply fell in love with the airstream life and wanted to find more places that offered a vintage inspired travel experience in one of these beautiful pieces of history.
After searching through Instagram, I came across Vintage Vacations! – Set amongst the countryside on a farm in ryde, vintage vacations offers a whole campsite of vintage caravans dating back to the 1940’s!
We stayed in the eldest caravan on site, the 1946 Spartan Manor and it was an absolute beauty. Keeping original features and decor with an update of amenities meant that we could live on board for the week, cook, shower, stay warm in the most authentic of ways possible.
Having stayed just after the summer holidays meant that we actually had the whole campsite to ourselves! It was pure bliss with days of reading, chilling, napping (a pregnant woman has to nap!) and lots of little trips out around the island.
Helen and her partner have done an incredible job and we would thoroughly recommend this unique experience to all!
We also took a trip to Ventnor botanical gardens, which was a dream! You may now know that we love our botanical garden trips, and ventnor lived up to my hopes.
So, here’s a few photos of our stay!
