About us...

Our Gypsy Caravan ‘Rambling Rose’ is situated in a secluded corner within the private grounds of Delancey House near the beautiful historic town of Lostwithiel in Cornwall.

The beautiful gardens of Delancey are a site to behold with an abundance of colour on all sides and throughout all seasons. They are well established with old apple trees, hedges of lavender, rambling wild roses and the prize winning “Azalea Walk” which is truly a sight to behold in early May.

There is a small and secluded cottage garden to the front of the caravan which is private to the caravan and perfect for that relaxing evening glass of wine or for eating al fresco, and you are sure to meet our friendly Robin who is always on the lookout for food!

From your garden and the paddock in front of you (which also belongs to Delancey House) you will see stunning far reaching views over the Fowey River Valley, with the meandering Fowey River and the beautiful town of Lostwithiel spreading out before you. To the left hand side there is a panoramic view across beautiful rolling countryside with distant views of Bodmin Moor and in the foreground the Medieval Restormel Castle.

Nick and Poppy look forward to welcoming you to our Cornish Gypsy Caravan!
