*Site can sleep up to 8* A 60s bus, now converted into a comfy escape for couples or families, looking out at the spectacular hills

Live a wild life and jump into this funky converted 60's bus for a retro adventure, and plan your escapades while looking out over Offa's Dyke!

The bus has been a project long in the making. A loving restoration has turned the well-worked 60s vehicle into a cosy bolthole, giving it a second lease of life and a whole new look with soft wood-colours and homely fabrics. There’s a wood burner to keep you warm, and plenty of room for napping and cooking. The bathroom hut just a few steps away contains a lovely gas powered roll-top bath where you can have a soak with a view (there's a wood burner here as well for when it's really chilly!)

The area around the Majestic Bus has been treated with no less care than the bus itself. The big Dutch barn hides the site from the house and on the other side is nothing but fields for miles, so you’ll be hard pressed to see another soul. The garden area has a fire pit and big cut logs for seats as well as the decking sun trap by the bus and two level grass pitches, either for extra tents or for shaded lazing on long afternoons.

In the surrounding area you’ll find a wealth of things to do from the cultural spot of Hay to adventure sports in the Brecon Beacons, but if you’re tempted just to relax in the bus for a glorious, languid week, we wouldn’t blame you.

Our guests say...

We were greeted by Layla on arrival, we were a little early but the bus was ready for us. The wood burner was going so the bus was very cosy and warm, such a lovely first impression. We were both in awe of the surroundings and the bus, everything was perfect for our stay. We loved every minute of our stay and didn't want to leave when the time came. It truly was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had and would definitely stay again!



We had a fantastic time, the cake and flowers when we arrived were a great touch. Owners are lovely



What a fantastic stay in a beautiful bus! The rain didn't stop us having a brilliant time.



We had the most incredible holiday at the Majestic Bus. Instant relaxation and the bus and its surroundings couldn't be better. The bus has been created by a couple who are clearly very creative and it's simply beautiful. Amazing flowers were placed in the bus for our arrival and a delicious lemon drizzle cake. Also the most comfortable bed I think I've ever stayed in. A lovely spot to escape to and very romantic. I didn't want to leave...



Our stay on the majestic bus far exceeded even our own high expectations. It is rare to find somewhere so characterful and unique that manages to feel so much like home. The owners have managed to maintain the authenticity of the bus whilst also equipping it with the home comforts necessary to provide a relaxing escape from city life. This homely and welcoming effect was further aided by the wonderful touches added by Rob and Layla - homemade cakes and beautiful flowers were very much appreciated additions to our stay. During our few days here, we spent peaceful evenings in front of the log burner, indulging in books, good food, wine and old fashioned conversation! The clear skies made the stars simply sensational and if we had been better at building fires we would have definitely utilised the roll top bath too! Especially after a tiring but scenic day of walking. The bus was also close enough to civilisation to offer easy access to some great pubs and local amenities whilst also remote enough to feel like an idyllic private retreat. It is safe to say that we enjoyed every moment!



"Stay was lovely and relaxing, the accommodation was very clean and comfortable as well as different and interesting, and the hosts were very welcoming"



"This was for a short weekend break to celebrate my partners 40th birthday (without the kids!). Having used Canopy and Stars on several occasions we knew roughly what to expect but were delighted by the ambience of the place, the comfort and the uniqueness. We enjoyed two relaxing nights with a warm fire and the whole weekend was amazing in a completely isolated location"



"The stay was perfect. The owners were very welcoming and friendly but equally gave us privacy during our stay. The accommodation was amazing and worked perfectly as a place for a few friends to chill out and catch up by a warming fire and under a starry night sky"



"We arrived on a very bleak afternoon. It was extremely misty because the Majestic bus is so high up in the mountains, but it created a very ambient and atmospheric scene. The ruins and twisted trees in the fog resembled a film scene, and at the top of the hill, we could see the bus. It looked lonely with its chimney smoking away all by itself, and we were uncertain upon arrival. The second we stepped onto the bus I knew it was going to be a good experience. From the quirky ornaments and fairy lights, to the uniqueness of the accommodation itself, with its steering wheel, indicator switches, wood burner and beds. Rob came to greet us with a couple of wine glasses and the Majestic quickly became home. The bathroom facilities were an experience in themselves, a log cabin with a roll top bath, roaring wood burner, candles and bizarre black cat decoration reminiscent of the nearby and somewhat eerie Hay on Wye. I felt like I was in Transylvania beautiful, glorious morning sunshine could be interrupted in the blink of an eye by a thick mist as the clouds engulfed the craggy mountainous peaks we were living in. It was extremely isolated too, but none the less an absolutely fantastic surprise and an amazing getaway that I'd love to revisit again soon. The milky ways belt would glow like a faint cloud at night due to the lack of light pollution and the stars were out in force. It was a wonderful trip I won't forget"



"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the quirky Majestic.  There were 5 of us on board, which at times was a little crowded, but great fun too!  The purpose built bathroom with log fire and free standing bath was lovely - such a luxury to bath with the stars!  We only met with the owners briefly when we arrived but knew they were around if we needed any help or guidance."



"Welcome excellent

Walking excellent

Seclusion excellent

Accommodation excellent

All other aspects I can think of - excellent

First task on arriving home - booked for longer stay next year"



"A brilliant weekend. The weather was perfect so that we were able to sit outside until late each night and the bbq newly provided by our hosts was used twice.  The bus was amazing, very comfortable, beautifully fitted out and very cosy when the log burner was in action.  The washroom facilities were also great and again made even better by the log burning stove. A lovely location and beautiful countryside."



Yes, it was a great experience and absolutely fantastic place to stay and relax. The owners couldn't do enough for us. The best thing was staying in such an unusual place and taking a bath in the fabulous roll top bath looking at the countryside surroundings. There was nothing negative at all to say about our stay."
