Yep… I have to admit, given the choice of a luxury hotel room, or a camp site my sense of adventure takes a bit of a runner! Having said that who could resist the charm of these retro custom hand built caravans by The English Caravan Company.
UK based Joiner Richard Stark was asked by a client to refurbish an old caravan, he enjoyed it so much that he started The English Caravan Company in Feb 2010. Richard now makes three styles of caravan which take influence in their style from the 30’s through to the 50’s, yet have all the mod cons of the 21st Century…..Various options available including TV/DVD….Fridge, sink, solar panels to cocktail cabinets!
The designer feels that the positive reaction to these little home from homes is to do with their “quintessential englishness”, together with the nostalgia of bygone times where mobile phones and email were the thing of science fiction, and people enjoyed afternoon tea and cake, fish and chips by the sea out of newspaper and sand finding its way everywhere…..
