We love our specially converted caravan. Now enlarged to 20' x 10' with vaulted ceiling, it has stained glass windows from Nutsford and French windows from Brighton. It sits in a leafy orchard in an old Chartist village off the M25 about 12 miles from Heathrow. The family room is light and airy with living at one end and sleeping at the other. Facilities include a comfy double bed, shower room, kitchenette, dining area, a sofa and TV, and a kids gallery up a ladder. Fully heated and well lit.
It's a perfect self-contained 'tiny House on Wheels with South facing verandah, and a view over fields and woods. There is ample parking and lovely walks. Nearby is the Chiltern Open Air Museum with re-constructed buildings from all ages. Nearby you can visit the Harry Potter experience, Bekonskot model village, Windsor castle, Chorleywood Common and the Aquadrome at Rickmansworth with its award-winning cafe. Of special interest is the Chiltern open air museum and many interesting pubs and restaurants. Here are some details:

We live down a a pretty private country lane in a Conservation Area, where there are a number of houses set behind hedges and fences. There is very little traffic. We like the village because although it's set in the country, it has great access to London from the mainline station just 10 mins away by car.
Lovely little place. Just as described. Tremendous hosts!!
