The Gypsy Daydream Chicken House


Price: 4,600.00 (Including VAT at 20%)


The Gypsy Daydream is as individual as your own imagination. Whilst the Daydream shown here explores the delights of dancing daffodils and delicate ivy on a base of Cornish Butter, the decorative design of your Gypsy will be entirely inspired by you.

Three coats of the Heritage colour of your choice will be applied before our artist begins to express your own ideas and create a design that is completely unique.

When you start to think about your bespoke design, please also be aware that our Artist can decoratively inscribe a name, personal message or scrolled commemoration (to celebrate an anniversary for example) onto your Gypsy.

Individually hand-made by craftsmen in our rural Dorset workshop, your Gypsy is created from air-dried Joinery grade Swedish Redwood from sustainable sources, pressure treated to protect the timber from rot before any paintwork is applied.

Built as a romantic hideaway for up to fifteen lucky ladies, The Gypsy Daydream boasts an impressive list of quality features including:
Solid Marine Chandlery Brass fittings; Heavy gauge galvanized steel roof with trim-finished edges; Hand-made solid steel, steerable wheels and axles; Double plated screws and stainless steel nails throughout; Detachable external nestbox; Removable perches; Easy-clean slide-out sealed exterior grade plywood dirt tray; Upper double Stable door and lower single door with pop hole; Twin heart-shaped sliding windows; Fold-up lockable steps and a custom-made steel handlebar attachment for steering and relocating your Gypsy.

For a complete list of features in greater detail, please see the 'Design' and 'Features' sections.

The Gypsy Daydream is offered at £4,600.00, depending on any additional bespoke requirements and your delivery preferences.

Hand-made by Craftsmen who care, using the best of traditional techniques allied with modern know-how in our rural Dorset workshop. The Timber used is pressure-treated Scandinavian Redwood, air-dried and treated to ensure a long life and peace of mind. All our Timber is sourced from one family mill in Sweden, certified and approved by the Forestry Stewardship Council of Great Britain.

Joinery-grade, pressure-treated Scandinavian RedwoodTimber, air-dried to ensure a long life and peace of mind. All our Timber is from sustainable sources, certified and approved by the Forestry Stewardship Council of Great Britain.

Solid Marine Chandlery Brass hinges, hasps, locks and latches radiate quality, assuring durability. This minute attention to quality detailing is complemented by the use of stainless steel nails and durable double-plated screws throughout.

We use only the highest quality, heaviest gauge fully-galvanized steel for your Gypsy roof, with a slate-grey plastic-coated finish and edge trimmed for complete protection.

Wheels & Mobility:
No Gypsy Caravan would be complete without fully-working running gear, and our steerable system is designed to be practical and durable as well as attractive. All wheels and axles are then additionally enhanced by two coats of special protective black paint.

To steer and move your Gypsy from place to place we also include a steel handlebar attachment which fits to the front axle underneath the steps which fold up into a locking position. Please note that the Gypsy has not been designed for sustained towing (by a vehicle or horse for example) and due care and attention should be exercised at all times.

Easy access is the essential precursor to easy cleaning, so we have designed The Gypsy with features to make cleaning a breeze. The Gypsy's stable door enables easy access to the interior, where removable perches are situated above an easy-pull-out dirt tray. Constructed of high quality exterior-grade ply and additionally sealed for an even longer life, the dirt tray slides out of the Gypsy to make changing the henhouse bedding very easy.

The external nestbox is completely removable by releasing the brass cabin hooks that hold it in place, allowing additional access to the Gypsy's interior.

Egg Collection
Children love to collect eggs and hens prefer privacy and a cosy environment in which to lay, so we have designed the ideal nestbox to keep both your ladies and any children contented. At the same time as providing three secluded and partitioned individual areas within the nestbox, we have not forgotten the human element either; Lift up the nestbox's brass-hinged, lockable lid and your breakfast quandaries are solved!

Three perfectly shaped and ideally spaced perches guarantee a natural roosting environment for up to fifteen hens to relax and unwind after a hard day's laying and foraging. The perches are also removable for easy cleaning.

Good ventilation is essential for happy hens, so your Gypsy benefits from two sliding heart-shaped windows to enable you to ensure an airy, draught-free environment in all seasons.
