Elle-de-Vardo: The Showman's Wagon

Immerse yourself under Sisland’s big skies and stargaze up at the night sky letting Elle-de-Vardo capture your heart. This inviting Showman’s Wagon was traditionally hand-built by Norfolk craftsmen and refurbished in 2018 when it was moved to its new location nestled amongst fruit trees in the orchard.

Living

Inside Elle-de-Vardo, ingenious use has been made of the available space. From a pull-out dining table to under-seat storage – each piece of furniture has been custom built with the wagon in mind. Small, but perfectly formed.

Eating

Elle-de-Vardo offers you the best of both worlds as it is booked in collaboration with Orchard Barn – meaning that you have access to a fully equipped kitchen (complete with ‘fridge-freezer, washing machine and dishwasher). Alternatively nothing could be better than al-fresco dining surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.

Sleeping

The Showman’s Wagon has a single bed which can be extended into a double. There are fully opening windows on all four sides allowing you to enjoy a very different sort of caravan holiday as the Barn Owl flies over Elle-de-Vardo on its way home.

Bathing

A recently-renovated bathroom complete with a large, luxurious walk-in shower is available in Orchard Barn for you to use.

Outdoor Space

Situated in an orchard with apple, pear and plum trees, there’s plenty of outdoor space. Access to a patio with a luxury lounge suite and dining table is a few steps away. Should the evenings get a bit chilly, there’s a wood-burner and a plentiful supply of logs.

Wi-Fi

Elle-de-Vardo and Orchard Barn have Wi-Fi throughout should you wish to keep in contact with the outside world. Please bear in mind that Sisland is a rural village and Wi-Fi speeds and reliability may not be as consistent as in urban areas.

Dogs

Unfortunately, Elle-de-Vardo is unsuitable for dogs.

Parking

There is plenty of parking for up to three cars.
