The first of our Vintage Vans is a fully restored 1967 Franklin Caravelle, a perfect secluded glamping escape for two people. Imagine relaxing on the deck with a glass of local wine, snuggling next to the fire pit or soaking in the sunken bath while taking in the stunning rural views. We are located a scenic 25 minute drive from the beautiful town of Mudgee on the way to the historical village of Windeyer. Our property is a 105 acre working alpaca farm, with over 100 alpacas for you to meet.
The Van is fully stocked with everything that you need for your stay: Linen, towels, cutlery, plates, cups, glasses, utensils and pots and pans. The Truma gas heater will keep you cosy indoors in the colder months. There is a fan for the warmer weather, but please note the van does not have air conditioning.

We had the best time at Mel and Dale's alpaca farm and would highly recommend the van to anyone who is looking for a place to wind down and relax. The van was well equipped with enough creature comforts to make the stay a delight. Our favourite part was of course exploring the property and meeting the curious and very cute alpacas....

I highly recommend a stay in the vintage 1967. It is an absolute dream. Incredible views, the bath is amazing, every little touch has been considered my Melanie. Luxury break surrounded my nature. Couldn't ask for anything more. Only advice stay for more than 1 night as you won't want to leave!!...
