We are delighted to introduce you to Dolly the Circus Wagon, a traditional and fully restored wagon settled not far from the coast near the village of Brynhoffnant.

Once the home of travelling acrobats and fortune tellers before being abandoned, Dolly has been lovingly restored to provide a unique and characterful holiday home, full of modern comforts and classic antiquities.

Take in Dolly's beautiful exterior, painted in a traditional style, before taking the steps up to the decking and heading inside, passing the external shower room.

Be welcomed into the compact but well-equipped kitchen space, with an array of classic tins and trinkets lining the shelves adding authenticity to this vintage setting, along with a combination oven and hob among the appliances.

A small dining area sits in this space too, a perfect spot for enjoying the freshly baked cakes provided in the welcome pack, while door with original stained glass windows leads into the sitting room.

Relax in here on the plush sofa with a woodburning stove to heat the wagon up in the winter months, all amidst more circus inspired décor.

Completing the layout is the bedroom, with dual aspect, original lattice windows and a king-size bed against the wall, accessed from one side.

The shower room rests outside, down the decking steps and to the left, with a full-size suite including a walk-in shower and heated towel rail.

Dolly is situated within 8 acres of beautiful meadows and woodland grounds which you are free to explore, perfect for a stroll first thing, or a summer evening jaunt.

Just one mile down the road is the village of Brynhoffnant, home to a local shop and a pub, and resting on the main coastal road, connecting you to a host of towns and villages worth visiting.

The nearest beach is Penbryn Beach, a National Trust site spanning almost a mile with golden sands, offering a great stargazing spot, and if you visit at dusk you might catch sight of seals, barn owls and even some of the resident bottlenose dolphins!

Some other beaches to head to within a 20-minute drive include Llangrannog, Aberporth, and Tresaith.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is within reach and presents beautiful areas to explore on foot or bike, with the Wales Coast Path allows you to easily explore the stunning coastline.

Nearby attractions include Internal Fire Museum of Power, Welsh Wildlife Centre, National Wool Museum and Newcastle Emlyn Castle.

Enjoy a memorable stay with your loved one at the wonderfully unique Dolly the Circus Wagon.
