Bluebell Corner | Cornel Clychau'r Gog
Our vintage gypsy caravan is the perfect romantic retreat and is open all year round. Designed specifically for one or two adults, our caravan is an original gypsy bow top, with a double bed, log burning stove and lots of quirky storage space. There is also an adjacent log cabin with a kitchen and dining area, including a cosy sofa, running water and a gas hob. Outside you have a secluded garden with fire pit and rustic outdoor furniture, plus a private composting toilet and hot shower. Due to the unique design and layout, Bluebell Corner is not suitable for babies and children, but well-behaved dogs are very welcome!
Our much-loved bow top has a real story to tell. Hand built originally for Bill Boswell, as you can see from the ornate WB woven into the elaborate paintwork, it has been to the famous Appleby Horse Fair and has been lived in by Romany families. These days it nestles in the corner of its own field so is super private and is the perfect place to step back in time and escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. Stepping inside the caravan is like retreating into a safe, cosy sanctuary, with the double insulated roof and walls protecting you from the weather and outside noise all year round. With the log burner crackling away and lots of cosy blankets and cushions, there is no better place in the world to hide away and relax.
Just next to the caravan is the hand-built log cabin, with a veranda from where you can enjoy the ornate paintwork of the bow top and the views to the mountains beyond. There is a fire pit for you to cook and toast marshmallows over, or just snuggle up under a blanket with a hot chocolate to watch the stars. Inside there is a fully-equipped kitchen with all your home comforts, including a sink and running water, cool box and gas hob plus all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery you could ever need. There's also a dining table and a big squishy sofa to curl up on and read a book or play cards next to the log burner.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the way the caravan is built, you need to be able to climb into the small double bunk bed, which is slightly smaller than a standard double. We do provide a small ladder but this accommodation is not really suitable for anyone with mobility issues, or who requires a lot of sleeping space. Bluebell Corner is also not suitable for babies or children.

The Forge is a great place to stay, we stayed in Bluebell Corner a nice secluded spot where we could relax in peace with the dog. The facilities provided are superb and sustainable with a cracking little lodge to hold up in if the weather is bad. Sheena's communication and support was brilliant and Jamie was super welcoming and a great axe throwing coach! We had a great time and will definitely be back.James, Manchester, August 2020
