Parsons Bus Site - The Best Glamping Bus in Dorset!
Parsons Bus Site is situated between the bottom corners of Brickles Wood and Parsons Copse with views across the Dorset countryside looking towards Bulbarrow hill. This exclusive glamping site features our very own double-decker bus! The site can sleep 10 comfortably between the bus (4), bunkhouse (4) and a shepherds hut (2), all built on the Stock Gaylard Estate. This site is perfect for families and groups of friends.
Glamping Bus, Horsebox, Bunkhouse & Shepherds Hut!
The Glamping Bus was once a coastal tourist bus starting its life on the Isle of White, then moving to Norfolk before finally finding its true calling in the glamping world here on the Stock Estate. With most of the original seats removed it now boasts four beds on the lower deck while the upper deck houses an undercover seating area and kitchen. The back half of the upper deck has been left open to the skies. We have installed an oak bench that gives seating around three sides of the custom built oak table in the middle. It has mains water, hot water from the kitchen tap as well as a gas oven and fridge giving you most of the luxuries you would have at home.
Additional to the Bus we also have the Bunkhouse and Shepherds hut.
The Bunkhouse contains one double bed and two single bunks above. With the additional two man shepherds hut this gives the site a total bed capacity for ten people. There is also a small pergola in the garden that makes a great place to everyone to eat or play cards.
There is a towed horsebox that contains a gas heated shower with a table and basin. As the pictures show, there is also a bath in the horsebox, the hot water of which is provided by our own design of a wood fired boiler. Light the fire underneath and then after a while turn on the hot tap! Near the horsebox is a raised compost toilet with its own sink. The whole site is plumbed with mains water.
The site is child friendly and we welcome up to two dogs on this site. Hen do’s are also welcome at Parson’s Bus Site.
There are excellent train links nearby at Sherborne, from there Stock Gaylard is a 10 minute taxi ride, there is a taxi office at the station.
We recommend Dike & Son, our local family run supermarket in Stalbridge for groceries. They sell a range of local produce plus all the well known brands you use everyday and offer a delivery service for your arrival.
In addition we can provide Venison from the estate POA.
