This lovingly restored old showman’s carriage offers truly unique holiday accommodation perfect for a very special occasions or romantic getaways, located within stunningly beautiful rolling countryside.

Located in 1066 country, surrounded by 200 acres of farmland and orchards, this holiday let has an abundance of country walks on its doorstep. The Sussex countryside is dotted with charming villages and towns offering independent shopping facilities and traditional English pubs. The carriage looks out to National Trust’s Bodiam Castle, which is a fascinating site to explore. 5 minutes stroll within the grounds of Quarry Farm, there is also a café and farm shop, "The Hub" offering Wi-Fi, water sports, a beauty salon and many other facilities.

Inside, mahogany woodwork and crystal ornate mirrors are featured throughout this 1894 carriage. Originally a fairground owner’s home, which toured the West Country, the current owners have lovingly restored the carriage to create cosy accommodation for two. To one end of the carriage is the bedroom, with a fixed raised small-double bed dressed in Irish linen and painted woodwork all around, and a small hand basin. To the other end is a cosy lounge area with a vintage tiled fireplace and woodburner effect fire, gas heater and a TV with DVD and CD player. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are located in two separate adjacent buildings leading off the outside veranda, so you will not have to walk far to prepare meals. In the kitchen you will find a sink, small oven and electric hob, fridge and railway carriage style small table with seating for two, overlooking the fields beyond. The contemporary wet room has a shower and WC.

Outside the main carriage there is a raised decked area with an overhead enclosed veranda. This is a peaceful spot in which to relax with a glass of wine overlooking Bodiam Castle and the apple orchards.

This was a lovely step back in time. The carriage has been lovingly restored. The kitchen and bathroom areas are separate but feel part of the accommodation due to the lovely covered verandah. John and his team put a lot effort in to making the whole experience a good one. The welcome packs are a nice touch.

Such a beautiful carriage, lovingly restored and well kept. Its so unusual to find such beautiful dog loving (not just friendly) quirky accommodation. We spent a lot of our time on the outside decking, even when windy and damp it is sheltered, although harsh rain does get on to the deck a bit. Sitting inside at night listening to the radio and readRead moreing by dim light made the experience so atmospheric. Do go there if you get a chance, be engaging of the experience. We will go back.

Quaint and unique stay in lovely peaceful surroundings. Our large dog was very comfortable. There are no local shops etc, so unless you want to drive, its better to eat at the local pub, also dog friendly, or make sure you have some provisions. The Hub is very close for daytime needs. John was a great host and provided plenty of support.

A superb getaway. Fantastic views of the castle. John Boy's cider is highly recommended. Made from the apples in the orchard that is in front of this amazing carriage.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time at the Prince Regent. It is wonderfully planned and we loved the thatched and beamed kitchen, comfy sofas and exquisitely decorated bedroom and lounge. We ate in a different area each night, and the CD player even pipes into the kitchen! John went above and beyond to help us, delivering delayed luggage and sendingRead more on items we left behind.

Wonderful location for a relaxing weekend, just what we wanted. We got a very warm and informative welcome, all we needed to know. Lots to do in the area, but also perfect for just chillin out and reading a pile of books. As we took our dog, we spent time enjoying all the walks in the area. Returned home relaxed and refreshed.

A lovely quirky carriage, with a lot of original features. Set on a farm with great views from the deck. Very relaxing and different. The host, extremely helpful and informative. Something different for two, I would recommend. Also the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.
