Gypsy Caravan Hire

Hiring a caravan is a great way to have a fantastic holiday, generally at a much lower cost than other types of holidays. There are two main types of caravans: static caravans that are fixed to one place, generally a holiday park, and towed caravans, that you can drive around the country at your own leisure. Both types have distinctive advantages. Static caravans are ideal for families with children, mainly because the parks where they are located have great facilities for children. Towed caravans are great if you want to have an independent holiday, allowing you to move from one place to another.

What is Gypsy Caravan Hire?

Gypsy caravan hire is great for those people who love the traditional gypsy caravans. These types of caravans are beautiful inside and out and can give you a fantastic experience, be it for a single night or an extended holiday. Generally, companies offering gypsy caravan hire will not allow you to drive with them, particularly since original ones are pulled by horses rather than cars, of course. Generally, gypsy caravan hire works more on a bed and breakfast basis, for several nights or even a single romantic night.

Hiring a gypsy caravan is generally classed as alternative camping or glamping.
