Camping to me when I was a child was two large bed sheets, a clothes line and a 100 pegs, struggling in the back garden spending an hour putting up our make shift tent, that never stayed up. So I was considering for a short holiday, on going camping, for real (no sheets required). To my delight I came across a treasure of a place in The Isle of Wight, The Isle of Wight is an English Island and a County, located 3-5 miles from the south coast of the mainland. The place is called Vintage Vacation owned by Helen Cunningham, you can hire out American style trailers,a beech shack, a chalet and my favourite a tin tabernacle.
I have fallen in love with the tin tabernacle and I guarantee you will too.
The converted tin tabernacle called ‘ The mission’
I can definitely see myself here, sitting in front of the fire.
I love the mixture of the the interior walls, the horizontal wooden panelling and the white walls. The style through out is a mixture of old and new complimenting each other.The architect Keith Cunningham has created this magnificent open plan building within a building.
Part of the living room area.
One of the two open plan bedrooms.
The 1950’s style kitchen.
Very cosy and so effortlessly put together.
Very vintage, loving this patchwork sofa.
The kitchen area.
There is a variety of American trailers to choose from.
Even the trailers have that effortless vintage style.
Now the problem is which one do you choose or stick to the old traditional way, bed sheets and pegs, not.
