Along with my husband Frazer we own and curate a field full of vintage Airstream caravans and other truly unique places to stay on the Isle of Wight, an Island just off the South Coast of England, including our latest project, a collection of Tiny Home cabins, launched late 2017. Vintage Vacations & Co is our full time job and we have been doing it now for fourteen seasons - we can't quite believe that as it all started with just one silver caravan …. previously we worked in the photographic industry as a photographer and stylist (that's me) but we took the plunge to change direction and have no regrets :-) On our downtime we like to travel all over the world … usually in a lo-fi fashion as we do like to have adventures! We try and gather inspiration and hosting ideas from our travelling that we can use to improve what we have created here. We really enjoy meeting our guests and fellow wanderlust-ers and look forward to helping you have a fun and memorable stay. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about our places to stay or the Isle of Wight in general - we're happy to help. In 2017 we launched a new venture - a smallholding of off grid beautiful Tiny Homes (all of which are listed with airbnb) and a fabulous on site studio where we hold workshops of all kinds. Hope to see you soon!

During your stay
Guest have access to the whole of our Airstream site. It's very lo-fi and a great place to chill out and relax.
We are hugely proud that our site is exclusive to Vintage Vacations – only classic Airstreams, vintage caravans and our own retro tents. No other beige caravans and tatty tents to spoil the view.
Tucked away on a small working farm, our spacious, grassy field is in a peaceful, pretty spot with views over to Brading Downs.
