Delancey House

Not suitable for children

Not suitable for pets

Not just a Gypsy caravan: beaches, antiques, real pubs, lush gardens and surfing surround you...


There truly are rambling wild roses, namesakes of a very special Gypsy caravan, in the garden-lover’s paradise surrounding Delancey House. Rambling Rose is tucked away here, in a little corner of Cornwall you can call your own. The caravan itself is Cornish to the core. Built in Penzance in the 1930's, she was restored here by local craftsmen and decorated with pretty scrollwork and floral patterns by your hosts Nick and Freya. Panoramic views spread from her painted steps to the Fowey river valley, with Bodmin Moor in the distance across beautiful rolling countryside. Inside, there’s a pull-out double, traditionally snug (so check the measurements first if you’re tall)! Everything from fresh towels to charcoal for the barbecue is provided.

The enchanting town of Lostwithiel is a hop and a skip down the hill. Rich in history – the medieval Restormel Castle fell in the Civil War – it has regular antiques fairs, good pubs and restaurants and quirky little shops. Hire a wetsuit and board and go surfing, or explore the gardens of Heligan or Lanhydrock – all the delights of Cornwall are within reach, if you can tear yourself away...

Meet your hosts

Delancey House is Nick's family home, and now that of Rambling Rose as well. Originally built in Penzance in the 1930s, this Romany caravan has been lovingly restored to its former glory by a talented Cornish craftsman using traditional methods passed down through generations. It contains many beautiful authentic features - some of the original paintwork can still be seen on the original pot box at the back of the wagon. Nick has touched up the wagon using traditional art techniques to show stunning scroll work and rambling roses, saying, "it has been a real joy to do and we are so pleased with the result!"

The beautiful gardens of Delancey are a sight to behold, with an abundance of colour on all sides and throughout all seasons. They are well established, with old apple trees, hedges of lavender, rambling wild roses and the prize-winning “Azalea Walk” which is truly a sight to behold in early May. From your garden and the paddock in front of you (which also belongs to Delancey House) you will see stunning and far-reaching views over the Fowey River Valley, with the meandering Fowey River and the beautiful town of Lostwithiel spreading out before you. To the left there is a panoramic view across beautiful rolling countryside, with distant views of Bodmin Moor and in the foreground the medieval Restormel Castle.

Lostwithiel in the Fowey River Valley is rich with history and has a lively and vibrant community. It's perfectly positioned for discovering the many unspoiled beaches of Cornwall - if you can tear yourself away! Check the 'Local Activities' section for all that Lostwithiel and the surrounding region has to offer.

Wildlife & Environment

The bathroom at Rambling Rose (private for guests) has an innovative spring water shower and loo.

A walk around the nearby countryside will reveal an abundance of wildlife: from deer, badgers, foxes and owls to the occasional (unverified!) glimpse of the Beast of Bodmin Moor...

  • Overview

Our guests say...

The rambling rose was a fantastic stay. Nick was very attentive and had added lots of thoughtful extras to make us feel comfortable. The rose is warm and cosy with everything you could need and a very lovely bathroom nearby. We have stayed in a few things like this but this was by far our favourite, and the view is fantastic!



I can not express what a lovely time I had whilst staying in Rambling Rose for 2 nights. A beautiful caravan inside and out, with everything you will need including a very thoughtful little welcome basket of things to get you started. It was secluded enough to be private and bathroom was lovely to. Stunning views of the Cornish country side, lovely and peaceful. The local town about 2 minuets drive and had lovely shops, supermarket and places to eat. Likewise it was well located to visit lot of places in Cornwall. Nick was really friendly and gave me a quick tour before I enjoyed the lovely caravan and Cornwall. Its been a dream of mine to stay in an authentic gypsy caravan and its been fulfilled!



My partner and I really enjoyed staying in the Rambling Rose. It was such a unique time away for us and we both fully enjoyed the experience! The Rambling Rose was beautiful as well as the view. Lovely host. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something a little different! The photos really do not give this place justice!



I stayed at the Rambling Rose for 3 nights. I had a great time. It was in a peaceful area, and in a good location to the sites I wanted to see.



Beautiful setting, lovely caravan and great host. Thank you so much!



We wanted a couple of nights away post wedding celebrations to simply relax and enjoy the quiet. Rambling Rose met our every need and it was great fun being able to cook outdoors and enjoy the incredible views. The place was clean and perfectly styled with everyting we needed.



Very enjoyable, great spot and gypsy caravan! Has a great time and would definitely recommend. Nick was a great host.



"A fantastic place to stay! Beautiful countryside, beaches and caravan. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Nick the host. The welcome pack sausages and bread were delicious and I couldn't recommend this place enough. A cosy winter getaway is what we wanted and that's what we got! Thanks for an amazing stay, we would definitely return"



"The gypsy caravan in Cornwall was perfect for our wedding anniversary, we loved the caravan, it has a little fire inside & a pull out bed, it also has a stone fire pit outside, we had a lovely loaf of fresh bread, Cornish butter & sausages in the fridge fo us on arrival, lovely quiet secluded location with fantastic views."



"The caravan was simply adorable and just so cosy! We loved being able to sit outside every evening in the sunshine, before making a campfire and waking up to the view of the sunrise over the hills. Rambling Rose was a magical place to stay and Lostwithiel was the perfect Cornish town to explore. We travelled everywhere on foot or public transport; the station is really well connected and Lostwithiel only a short walk from the caravan. A truly unique experience!"



"We had a very enjoyable stay in the Gypsy Caravan. View across the valley was beautiful and the location very quiet and secluded."



"Very much enjoyed our stay, was a surprise birthday present for my wife, who loved the caravan and the location, just a shame about the weather! The best thing was just getting away in a quiet part of the country, visiting lovely towns and having some lovely food in some very nice restaurants."



"Absolutely amazing stay. Weather fantastic which definitely helped but the location was stunning, our hosts were welcoming, friendly but not obtrusive. The welcome hamper of necessities including bread, butter, jam, tea coffee, milk and sugar was a lovely touch. We spent 5 nights in the caravan and left feeling really blue that our stay was over. Cooking over a campfire was amazingly good fun but you are within easy reach of several pubs and eateries if self-catering is not your style. Can't recommend Rambling Rose highly enough, if you're looking for a romantic, secluded break surrounded by beautiful countryside then this is the place for you!"



"It was delightful! Such a beautiful setting and they provided us with a delicious hamper of food. The owners were there when we needed them but also really left us to our own devices so we very much had our own space and the caravan was also very secluded. The view is just as beautiful as in the photos if not more so. All the firewood was provided and the fire pit and little stove were great for cooking on as well as warming us up but the gas stove was also great for any rainy days. Overall a stunning place to stay in a beautiful setting."



"We had a lovely time at Rambling Rose. The caravan is beautifully decorated, immaculately restored, cosy (even on cold nights!) and had everything we needed. Nick was very friendly and welcoming and provided a great welcome pack of bread, jam, milk and local eggs and sausages which was a really lovely touch. The view from the caravan is stunning with a beautiful outside space and nice pubs in Lostwithiel when we felt like venturing out."



"We had an amazing weekend.  Rose is absolutely stunning and has obviously been restored with a lot of love and attention to detail.  The location is perfect - very peaceful but also within easy reach of some great places to visit.  Will definitely recommend to others and hope to go back ourselves at some point."

Booking Terms

Canopy & Stars low price promise
Book with us in confidence knowing you won’t find that place cheaper elsewhere. All of the prices we display are set and matched by our Owners. (In this world of foreign currency, we do have to say 'subject to exchange rates' for some of our European places.)

What does ‘from price’ mean?
Our ‘from price’ is based on a four night stay in low season and designed to help you to compare different prices across our collection. Some of our Owners vary their nightly rates and check in days throughout the year, so it may differ from the rate quoted below the calendar. It is quite common (although by no means universal) for places to charge a little more in peak season or for shorter stays, to cover changeover costs. Consider booking longer stays during the cooler months if you’re looking for the lowest nightly rates.

We will also liaise between you and the Owner in relation to any alternative Booking offered by the Owner but we will have no further liability to you.


4. Complaints

Because the contract for your Booking is between you and the Owner, any queries or concerns should be addressed to them. In the event that you have any complaint about your stay, please notify the Owner as soon as possible. If you don’t follow this procedure there will be less opportunity for the Owner to investigate and resolve your complaint and so make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Delays may also mean that amount of compensation you may be entitled to may be reduced. Whether or not your complaint is dealt with satisfactorily, please also contact us as we appreciate all feedback. It’s important to us and the Owner to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay or if anything could have been improved.


5. Pricing

Canopy & Stars reserve the right to amend advertised prices at any time on behalf of the Owner. We also reserve the right to correct errors in both advertised and confirmed prices.Special note: changes and errors sometimes occur.


6. Information & Accuracy

The information and prices shown on this website are varied from time to time and may change between the time you first view a property and make a Booking. You should check that all the details are as you expect prior to making a Booking. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the properties (including the features and extras available) may be incorrectly described and/or priced. If we discover this is the case after you have made a Booking, we reserve the right to contact you with details of the correct information and/or pricing and will give you the option to:

(1) proceed with the Booking based on the correct information and/or pricing, which may require the payment of an additional amount by you;


(2) subject to availability, change your booking dates to dates when the pricing can be honoured ad so no additional charge to you. In the event that a lower price can be offered for alternative dates then the difference would be refunded;


(3) cancel the Booking. If we do not receive your instructions within 5 days of contacting you, we reserve the right to cancel your Booking without liability to you.


7. Our Responsibility for your Booking

Your contract is with the Owner and its booking conditions apply. As Agent, we accept no responsibility for the actual provision of the Booking. Our responsibilities are limited to making the Booking in accordance with your instructions and acting properly in accordance with our legal duties as an Agent. We accept no responsibility for any information about the Booking that we pass on to you in good faith. However, in the event that we are found liable to you on any basis whatsoever, our maximum liability to you is limited to twice the cost of your Booking (or the appropriate proportion of this if not everyone on the Booking is affected). We do not exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury that arises as a result of our negligence or that of any of our employees whilst acting in the course of their employment.


8. Pets

Not all properties accept pets. If you wish to take your pet on holiday, please advise us before booking and we can check whether pets are accepted at the property.

Unless you tell us otherwise, we assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the Arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis.

11. Insurance

You are strongly recommended to take out personal travel insurance for all members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. Please read your policy details and take them with you on holiday.


12. Special requests

If you have any special requests (for example dietary requirements, cots or room location), please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on all such requests to the Owner, but unfortunately, we can't guarantee that they will be met and we will have no liability to you if they are not.


13. Group Bookings

Not all Owners accept Bookings for a single sex group (for example, a stag or hen party). Guests wanting to make such a Booking should check with us beforehand to enable us to check whether the Owner is prepared to accept the Booking. We will then advise you accordingly. In event that an Owner does not accept this type of Booking then it is with regret, that the Booking may be cancelled and cancellation fees may apply. It is the Guest’s responsibility to enquire with Canopy & Stars and/or check on our website beforehand to make sure that this type of booking is permitted.

Some Owners will also require damage deposits. You must also leave the property by the check-out time specified on your booking. If any guest behaves inappropriately or improperly (of which the Owner will be the final judge on their Property), or illegally, the Owner reserves the right to ask the guest and their party (at their discretion) to leave the Property before the end of the holiday period and/or refuse any future bookings from you.  Any refund for so doing will be at the entire discretion of the Owner. In addition, the Owner reserves the right to sue the guest for any loss, damage or injury caused to the Owner, the Property or to other guests and/or their property. As agent, we will have no liability to you in these circumstances.
