Ross Hamilton, Bristol 1851 Michelle Raeburn

“This summer we escaped to a quiet, remote site in the Welsh hills and discovered a slice of paradise. The children delighted in fishing, rope swings and the liberty to roam freely. My wife and I enjoyed stunning views and total peace – disturbed occasionally by the odd bleating sheep!


Michelle Raeburn, Milton Keynes1851 Michelle Raeburn

It was a vintage caravan with loads of character and the family loved it so much we plan to use the site for our festival wedding in May next year!
