About the Bus Stop

This innovative room-for-the-night is run by Superhost Dean. Dean converted this old horsebox back in 2016 and uses it as a home away from home where he can enjoy peace and quiet. The space comes with a ladder-accessible double bed area in front, a lounge area, kitchen area, and sofa bed. It sleeps up to five people. There is a composting toilet outside.

Some of the amenities include your basic bed linens and essentials, an indoor fireplace, and a desk where you can work. Keep in mind that this is an off-grid location, though. There’s no free WiFi to work on. Ideal for those who just can’t turn off…

You can book your holiday break in the horsebox right here on our website. Follow the link to our partner site to get booking. Don’t forget that you can find truck driving experiences through our site if you’d prefer to drive a truck, rather than live in one.

A Bit About Airbnb

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned.
