Wendy wagon is a unique calm and cosy home on wheels.She sits high at the end of a farm track in Lavenham, Suffolk, with long views over the countryside.


Wendy wagon is a completely unique very large shepherds hut on wheels. We built her with the help of two skilled carpenters, she is fully insulated with sheeps wool, lined with ply and clad in Larch. The wagon was designed to run on solar power although we now have an electrical hook up. The wagon was our home for 3 years while we managed the build of our new home. Inside there is a King size bed with feather and down quilts and pillows and cotton and linen bedsheets.There is a woodburner and electric heater so it is always warm and cosy.
There are electric lights, kettle, hairdryer and fridge . An iron and ironing board can be supplied if needed.
There are no cooking facilities in Wendy Wagon and we do not accept dogs.
As there is no running water in the wagon, bottled water will be supplied.
The toilet, shower and washing up facilities are located in the craft room approximately 50mts away . There is also a composting toilet close by specifically for use by Wendy Wagons' guests.
We have wonderful views of the sky and fields beyond and the nearby footpath is part of a circular walk through the trees and fields around Lavenham.
Wendy wagon sits behind our workshops and house in her own space.
Breakfast is supplied in Wendy for you to help yourself ( Muesli, yoghurt, fruit juice).
If the weather is calm it is possible to build a fire outside, snuggle up in blankets , sit on the stargazer benches and just watch the sky and listen to the owls.
From November 11th- December 17 Blackthorpe Barn at Rougham runs its British Craft Market , Fabulous handmade unique collection of British crafts exhibited by the makers in an oak beamed barn.

It can also be very dark here if you are not used to it, which means we benefit from amazing night skies.

Our stay in Wendy, although only one night, was without a doubt one of the most special trips we have taken. The cabin itself is simply beautiful, with its curved wooden ceiling and windows that frame the sun rise. So many lovely touches: sheep skin rugs for cold feet, a hugely comfy bed with down quilts and pillows for tired heads, so many wonderful fabrics, and Sue’s absolutely delicious tea loaf with homemade crab apple jelly, which was perfect after a walk from the cabin. Endless baskets of logs, a wood burner and dried orange peel, not only ensured that we were cosy, but also left the cabin smelling sublime the whole evening. Unfortunately, it was cloudy for us, but, optimistically, we went out to try and catch a glimpse of the meteor shower. Just outside the cabin there is a bench angled in such a way, that you can tilt your head against it and look at the stars (Sue showed us this on arrival). In short, if you are considering a stay in Suffolk, spend a night here: it’s close to Lavenham, and some great walks, but secluded enough to be very peaceful. As a host, Sue has clearly put so much thought and time into making it a memorable experience for anyone that stays with them. It was also a pleasure to meet Sue, and also Soli, the very friendly resident border terrier. We are already thinking about our next excuse to hope to return soon!

This is an amazing, cosy spot. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. Sue was so nice and helpful and everything was really smooth. The fireplace and stargazing benches were especially nice touches.

We had a lovely stay at the Wendy Wagon - couldn't be fitted out more beautifully or the setting more picturesque. And Sue couldn't have looked out for us any better or been a better host. It is also very reasonably priced and very close to Lavenham. A beautiful haven and I would thoroughly recommend it.

We loved are stay in the Wendy Wagon, the photos don't really do it justice! The rural location is beautiful with great views and walks. The wagon itself is great being both warm and comfortable even without the stove on. The facilities are great with two composting toilets and a modern bathroom. The environmentally friendly soaps and general feel of the place is a real plus as well. A tasty breakfast is provided for you to help yourself to during the stay and plenty of tea and coffee. Sue and Chris were great both before the trip and during responding quickly to messages and on hand if you needed anything via phone. Can't reccomend it enough.
