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 Redwood Timber, 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 burnished beauty and unparalleled quality, assuring generations of durability. Chandlery Brass is the finest of marine materials, extolled by traditional Cabinetmakers and Yachtsmen the world over for its aesthetic 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, edge trimmed for complete protection, with a deep slate grey colour.

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. Forged from heavy gauge solid Steel, our wheels and axles are individually hand-made by our local Blacksmith using traditional techniques passed down from father to son. All wheels and axles are then additionally enhanced by two coats of special protective 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 Caravan 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 and an absence of 'food traps' are the essential precursors to easy cleaning, so we have designed The Gypsy with singular 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 Marine-grade ply and additionally sealed for an even longer life, the dirt tray slides completely out of the Gypsy to make changing the floor shavings a synch.

The long external nestbox is completely removable by releasing latches designed specially for the purpose, allowing not only the nestbox to be tipped if required but also opening up 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 comfy, secluded and partitioned individual areas within a long, external nestbox, we have not forgotten the human element either; Lift up the nestbox's brass-hinged, lockable lid and voila, your breakfast quandaries are solved! The nestbox section also detaches completely from your Gypsy for easy cleaning.

Three perfectly shaped and ideally spaced perches guarantee a natural roosting environment for up to fifteen of your girls 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.
