A fantastic short break. We loved Olive - comfortable, well equipped and so peaceful. Had lots of fun with the table tennis too ! Thank you. Have been telling everyone about Olive

Olive was everything we had hoped it would be. Our boys were absolutely thrilled to be actually living and sleeping in a real bus! The toilet of course was especially good fun! Olive has been carefully and thoughtfully appointed for a comfortable stay, with everything provided for a perfect novelty holiday. The table tennis and swingball were great for extra outdoor fun and were a brilliant idea for keeping the boys entertained. We heartily recommend a stay in Olive!

Brilliant experience staying at Olive. Creative and well-executed concept for a fun but also relaxing family holiday. The setting is beautiful! Highly recommend and look forward to returning!

Really impressed with Olive, a beautiful, peaceful setting with some lovely walks right on your doorstep and a fabulous meal at the nearby Deer's Hut pub (recommend booking). The bus itself exceeded our expectations, everything you need is provided along with some extras (thank you!) and the conversion is to a really high standard. As a family with 2 teens who stayed during wet weather we all absolutely loved our mini break exploring, playing table tennis and just relaxing on the bus together, we'd recommend Olive to anyone!

We had such a fantastic time away! Our two boys are bus-mad and spent most of the time in the toilet/drivers seat! The bus has been beautifully finished so we were able to cook inside as well as BBQ outside, and we all really enjoyed the swing ball. The beds were super-comfortable too. Will definitely come back again, was just perfect!

We had a wonderful time, the three boy grandkids loved it. We walked to Wagonners Wells well worth a visit. The facilities in Olive just as your own home. Have already recommended it to other family members and friends.

We had the best time! It has everything you need and probably more spacious than a lot of hotels/Airbnb’s we have stayed at. The surrounding area is beautiful with so many trails and things to do!

As soon as you see Olive you just smile she is great.  Fitted with all you will need for your stay even games and videos. Beautiful walks or just relax with lovely views.
I really am unable to suggest any improvement to her she is perfect.
Thank you

We had a fabulous stay on Olive, thank you! Outweighed our expectations, couldn't believe the space inside. Bob has done a fantastic job of converting Olive. Olive was spotlessly clean and so well equipped. Lovely touch of the bread and 3 bottles of delicious cider! Cannot recommend a stay on Olive highly enough. Once again, thank you!

Olive is a total delight . She is a very unique vehicle and we love her so much, we have booked for next year. All parts of the accommodation are beautifully furnished . Plus we enjoyed the fire pit ( and toasting marshmallows ), the barbecue plus playing table tennis . The private paddock offers tranquility and beautiful views. So its 10 out of 10 and a gold star from us.

Very well equipped with lots of quirky features. Very warm and snug, especially with the woodburner on the go. Great attention to detail and even the guitar was in tune! Lovely walks just opposite the site and 30 mins wander to local pub. Will be coming again

A well thought out, quirky self catering accommodation. The quality of the conversion is high and everything in the bus is great quality too. In a beautiful setting with magical walks around the area. Sadly only 2 night stay. Could have stayed forever.

Loved our stay in Olive, she is amazing.... beautifully renovated and has everything you need for a fabulous break away from a busy life. 100% recommended. We really enjoyed the table tennis, swing ball, BBQ and fire pit. Everything was spotless and clean. Thank you Bob for letting us stay in your beautiful, unique and endearing bus. Eva & Jamie

We had a fabulous stay for our son's 3rd birthday celebration. The Bus was so comfy to stay on with modern kitchen, wet room and surprise toilet . We couldn't get our son out of the toilet! The upper sleeping quarters where spacious and we loved waking up to the views. We used the fire pit each night but didn't get time to try out the BBQ.Would highly recommend the local walks listed in the information pack. The surrounding areas are quiet, peaceful and excellent for social distancing.

A super place to stay, so much fun in a lovely location and our host Bob couldn’t do enough to make our stay fabulous, highly recommend Olive Bus

We had a great few days stay on the olive bus.. the bus is very quirky with loads of original features, super comfy and cosy beds and everything you could need was supplied plus lovely extras! The cider was great!.. Bob was a great host and we have recommended to family and friends and will definitely book again.

Olive is amazing! The attention to detail is fab - we loved that so many elements of the bus were still there - the loo is a triumph! We went with our two kids - the table tennis and swing ball were fab, the garden and bus felt private, the fire pit and BBQ kept us outside warm and well fed. There were matches, paper, different sizes of logs and coals - everything you needed was there! Inside it’s super comfy - the wet room is genius - enough room for all and hot water all the time. The upper deck was transformed into comfy cosy funky living quarters - And the kitchen downstairs has all you needed. Love love Olive.

We could not have wished for anything more during our stay on Olive. Bob was a very attentive host which was a perfect blend of friendliness yet unimposing to the stay. The attention to detail on the bus was amazing, as were all the games, books and jigsaws that were left for us to enjoy. The paddock and outside space was gorgeous, and the local walks were fab. What's not to love!

Olive has everything we needed for our family holiday. Comfortable and quality finishings. the wood burner and/or heaters, make it super comfortable. The toilet was the highlight for my youngest ;) Nature and walks at your doorstep.

Katie & Family
We totally loved Olive. The beds are super comfortable and the duvets keep you very tucked up -- so much so we want to visit in the winter to see the cosiness in action. Even on a rainy day you can relax on the beds and admire the view with the amount of windows that only a bus can give. The bus is high spec and true luxury! The location is fantastic with epic forests and lakes and streams that you can paddle in within walking distance. But dont forget the toilet, it is the coolest toilet we've ever used!

The owner had gone out of his way to accommodate us at short notice. We had a very brief stay, but he looked after us exactly the same as if we had been longer-term guests. He came to introduce himself and to explain additional features, which was lovely. Great care has been taken to make this property unique, and there are many additional touches which make it extra special. Thank you.

Trudi & Stuart
Lovely cosy bus all mod cons , nice and secluded , we slept with all the curtains open so we could see the
rabbits and other wild life. Great for a social distancing holiday as in its own grounds near a horse
paddock . Bob the owner left us some lovely cider and a beautiful home made fruit bread . Lovely touches. Private and very well maintained

Incredible space that contains everything you would need for a weekend away! Bob is clearly very talented as every aspect of the bus has been well thought out and the finish is impeccable, you can tell a lot of time and love has gone into this project! If you fancy something different to the usual hotels I would highly recommend this. It was truly a unique experience and we'll certainly be returning in the near future.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Olive. A lot of love has clearly gone into her. It was very well equipped and clean. We had everything we needed and more! Would love to come and stay again.

What a fantastic place to stay! It totally exceeded our expectations, with the amount of space, how cosy it was and how many creature comforts are packed into this awesome bus! We all slept so well in the very comfy beds and little touches like the heated towel rail and delicious fruit loaf left out for us all really made it so memorable. The weather was awful but it didn't matter, sitting inside with the leaves and rain whirling around outside made it feel even more cosy. Great walk on the doorstep to the Wells/lakes and v friendly Prince of Wales pub half an hours walk away. Loved it, and have highly recommended it to all our friends already! P. S. The drivers cab toilet was possibly the best bit of the whole weekend.

"What an amazing setting for this accommodation. Has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The owner explained everything and is on hand close-by. Spotlessly clean, utencils available to cook there as well as a handy bbq/fire pit. Will definately stay again. And a very "Cool stay"."
