Wanderlusts offer the only horse drawn gypsy caravan holidays, as well as stationary bow top gypsy wagons (vardos) in beautiful locations in and around Cumbria and the Lake District National Park. A small family business and run completely off grid!
With more than a decades experience of making, restoring and travelling in traditional horse drawn gypsy caravans, Barny has collaborated what he has learned with his partner Katus’ years of experience, travelling and performing as a musician around the world, to create an unique and unusual business offering a range of services, from bespoke gypsy caravan holidays, pack pony wild camping walking holidays across magnificent landscapes in Cumbria and Northumberland, beautiful horse drawn wedding transport, extraordinary music for any event, horse & cart rides through to wonderfully colourful marquee hire.
In 2015, Wanderlusts is undergoing some exciting changes!
Barny, Katus and Madog are preparing to set off on a big adventure, a horsedrawn journey in the direction of Europe in the new wagon they’ve built with its fold out stage for Katus and other artists of all disciplines to perform from along the way and “the horsedrawn hotel” an extra accomadation for guests to join them for selected dates on their journey,for which VOUCHERS ARE NOW AVAILABLE .
In their absence, they have taken on their friend Mat, to take out the horsedrawn holidays in Cumbria.
