The unique, freshly hand crafted interior of this 1976 Mercedes truck retains some features that hint at its previous bohemian lifestyle spent travelling the country and attending festivals. Now settled down in the Suffolk countryside, with access to a private one acre rewilding site, it snuggles up cozily next to nature. The site is on the brow of a hill and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area and night sky. There are local walks and Bury St Edmunds is a 5 minute drive away.

Indawo
Tucked away in a corner of the garden of our family home, the site offers a secluded space with private access either via the rewilding site, or 'the fairy path' which winds its way from the road and around our small orchard. Our home is located on a single track road but about 100 metres from a B road that offers easy access to major routes into town and the A14.
Immediately behind the truck is a small wild area under trees with a fire pit and a briquette BBQ, complete with a small table and seating. A light at the back of the truck illuminates this area at night. There is also a gate there that leads directly into our one acre rewilding area. Here we will shortly commence planting trees to turn it into a woodland. The rewilding area is south facing and offers an ideal location to enjoy unspoilt views and soak up the morning sun (hopefully!). It is also an ideal location with very little light pollution to observe the night sky.
The outside of the truck is completely unrestored and proudly displays its scars. However, the inside has been transformed and designed to provide all the comforts that a single person or couple might need. The bedroom is tucked away high above the cab with a cozy double bed and is accessed via a ladder. The low ceiling makes it feel very snug but you need to be nimble to access it and it is perhaps not for those that like to sit up suddenly in bed!
The lounge has a sofa in front of the woodburner and there is mood lighting which can be linked to the sound system. There is a radio/CD player so bring your favourite CDs or plug your laptop or phone into it to play your favourite music.
The kitchen has a fridge and a two hob gas cooker with a grill and oven. There is a work top and a sink with instant hot water. The kitchen is equipped with plates, cups, cutlery, saucepans, and most other essential items.
At the back end of the truck is a bathroom with a chemical toilet and a good sized shower with instant hot water. Water is stored onboard in a tank under the sofa and is sufficient, when full, to feed the shower for about 10 mins. However, the tank will be regularly refilled throughout your stay.
A solar panel on the roof provides most of the power but there is also a 240v feed to provide a boost for the batteries when needed and to power a couple of sockets.
The area is a perfect spot to observe wildife. Buzzards, red kites, kestrels, hares, deer, and butterflies are commonly seen throughout the day. The area is a haven for bats and they can be seen flying around the garden at dusk most evenings. Night-time is usually alive with the sound of owls calling out in the immediate vicinity.
Please be aware that the area is kept naturally wild to benefit nature and it would be advisable to bring both indoor and outdoor footwear. Guests will need to manage getting around the site, and up steps and the ladder. Whilst the truck offers a number of comforts, its ethos is to offer a simple retreat that is close to nature and should be treated as such. It is a lovely space in which to settle into a slower pace of life for a weekend break. Whether you want to read, paint, go bird spotting, stargaze, or just sit by a fire under the night sky, we think you will enjoy it here. Singing and/or playing an acoustic instrument is especially encouraged!

Apho uza kuba khona

Great Barton, England, United Kingdom

The truck is located about 4 miles north of Bury St Edmunds, close to the hamlet of Timworth. On the brow of a hill, surrounded by fields, we are blessed with amazing views in all directions. Our home was part of a farm in the 1840s and has remained virtually unchanged. Drinking water came from the well until quite recently, and we only got mains electricity in 2017! Our home is a semi-detached, so we have just one set of neighbours who are lovely! The next nearest neighbours are about a mile away. There is a bridle path across the road from which a highly respected cafe can be reached by foot in about 20 mins. About another 15 mins along that path is the nearest pub. With a bicycle, it is possible to be in the heart of the historic town of Bury St Edmunds within about 20 mins.
Within a short car journey there are numerous sites of interest such as Grimes Graves, Lackford Lakes, West Stow Anglo-Saxon village, and Kentwell Hall. We provide a welcome guide with more information.
