Capacity: 4 guests max, booked exclusively. You can also add a tent to camp within the glade during your stay, contact us for details.


Glade dimensions: Hilda is positioned in her own 20m * 20m glade.

Distance: car park (250m), showers (0m, within bus!), toilets (50m)


Key species: goldfinch, red deer and with the area developing into a scrub rich habitat, hopefully one day nightingale!


Hilda can comfortably sleep 4 adults. 2 in the standard double master bed in the back master bedroom. The bed is slightly raised, about 3 feet off the floor and accessible by a small step ladder at the front. The thick orthopaedic memory foam mattress is extremely comfortable. The sofas in the living area easily pull out and form a double bed or 2 singles, with the sofas cushions creating the mattress with a soft mattress topper on the top.

Hilda's story

Hilda began life in 2009 as an iconic yellow American school bus. She operated on the shores of Lake Ontario, North of New York, on the school run between 2009 and 2019. During the pandemic, in 2020, she was imported & rescued by her new owner to give
her a new life as a ‘skoolie’.


Since then, she has been lovingly hand-converted into a luxury cabin-inspired off-grid glamping unit over three years and we are all so excited to share her with you.


We hope you love and enjoy Hilda as much as we do, and you can make memories with us that you can cherish forever!
