Majestic Bus - Herefordshire, United Kingdom

Last cache: 21:41:57, Sunday 19 November 2017

Suitable for children of all ages

Not suitable for pets

Kids are welcome but pets cannot be accommodated

*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

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...

The majestic bus was very magical. Very peaceful with fantastic views and not a soul in sight. The chickens, cats and the variety of birds were welcome companions. The flowers cut from the garden and the delicious lemon cake hand made by Layla were a lovely treat. The wood burner was one of the best we had encountered and got the bus so warm and cosy. The huge roll top bath made for two was a great addition to soothe away aching muscles after long walks in the area, particularly with the wood burner to keep the room toasty warm. The games kept us entertained while listening to the quiet pitter patter of rain. All in all, a fantastic stay, thank you!

We had a fantastic stay on the gorgeous and super cosy Majestic Bus! Rob was very welcoming and helpful and the bus was perfect for us and our two boys - just wish we could have stayed longer than two nights.

My wife and I booked the Majestic Bus for a long weekend. The weather was amazing, which helped a lot but it still would have been a very interesting place to stay regardless. You could tell so much thought and effort had gone into the conversion and Layla did a great job making us feel welcome, showing us how stuff worked and letting us get on with our stay. The location is a little tricky to reach but worth it for such a beautiful and atmospheric location.

Literally the most chilled place ever, absolutely loved it!! Was for my boyfriends birthday and we both loved it and will be coming back again! Also amazing lemon drizzle cake

Sasha

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!

Lauren

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"

Heather

"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"

31/10/2014

Bruce

"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"

24/10/2014

Michael

"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"

16/10/2014

Tony

"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."

25/08/2014

Lisa

"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"

23/08/2013

Andy

"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."

17/05/2013

Julia

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."

Filming the Majestic Bus

Rob & Layla have been at their place since 2007. They started the venture in order to supplement their income in a way that suits their lifestyle with a young family as well as giving people a chance to see the area they live in the way that they do themselves. They are completely off-grid and have not allowed the bus to impact on that at all. Much of their land is used to grow seasonal cut flowers for Layla's business, and you might find a couple waiting for you in the bus if the time is right. 

The bus is located in a private and peaceful setting, in an elevated but sheltered location down a track and far from busy roads. They have some magnificent views across glorious rolling countryside and back across Herefordshire. You're able to have a real sense of having your own camp as there are no other units on site. They abundance of cut flowers and vegetables growing on site are a painters/photographers dream. The whole property is off-grid with solar panels to power the bus and the whole area is teaming with wildlife including red kites, all sorts of birds of prey, hedgehogs, hares, stoats and even a barn owl which Rob & Layla hope will take up residence.

Getting there

Penycastell , whitney on wye ,Hereford, HR3 6HW

By public transport

The nearest train station is  Hereford, about 20 miles away. The nearest bus station is Hay on Wye, about 6 miles away. Rob & Layla cannot pick you up, but taxis can be arranged.

By car

 

 

 

 

Get to Clyro on the A438 near Hay on Wye and drive into the village (opposite side of the road to the petrol station). Take the road signposted Newchurch and go up the hill. It's a left off the main road and then a quick right, both signposted Newchurch. Stay on this road on a fairly constant rise for about 3 miles.

Look out for a white cottage on the right where there is a right turn signposted Rhydspence. DON`T take this turn but carry on up the road and go past Clyro hill farm before taking the next right which is not signposted.

Go down this road and go straight over the crossroads, proceed down this road for about 1 mile and you will come to track on left to Bush Farm and, opposite this is Rob & Layla's track on the right over a cattle grid. Go down this track which is quite bumpy in places (keep left on the way down for a smoother ride).  Their place is on the right and you'll be able to see the bus just above you up the hill. The parking spot is just below it.

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.

You are also advised to confirm all changes to our Customer Services Department by calling 0117 204 7830. Please ensure that you have received written confirmation of any changes to your Booking prior to travel. Whilst we will always try to help, we cannot guarantee that such requests will be met.

 

2.2 Amendments and cancellations can only be accepted in accordance with the booking conditions of the Owner of your Arrangements. The Owner may charge the cancellation or amendment charges shown in their booking conditions (which may be as much as 100% of the cost of the Arrangements and will normally increase closer to the date of departure). The Owner may charge cancellation or amendment charges in accordance with its own booking conditions, however for the sake of convenience only, we have outlined the Owner’s charges at clause 2.3 and 2.4 below. Please note that these are the Owner’s own cancellation and amendments charges, not Canopy & Stars’, and therefore the Owner may vary their charges as they wish, without notice to us. The correct charges will be notified to you at the time of your cancellation or amendments.  

 

2.3 Owner’s General Cancellation Charges:

2.3.1 Cancellation by you at any time will result in your deposit being forfeited, as all deposits are non-refundable.

 

2.3.2 All monies paid for a holiday (deposit and balance) are non-refundable within 10 weeks before check in date.

 

2.3.3 Cancellation of any holiday after it has been paid in full and at a date 10 weeks or more in advance of your check in date, will result in forfeiture of your deposit (or an amount equivalent where one was not paid as the holiday was paid in full) and the balance being returned to you. 

 

2.3.4  Cancellation insurance is available but will be a third party arrangement and not involve Canopy & Stars or the Owner in any way.

 

2.4 Owner’s General Amendment Charges:

2.4.1 Alterations to your Booking can only be made more than 10 weeks prior to the check in date, after which time alterations will be treated as cancellation. All alterations are subject to availability and may incur a £30 adminstration fee.

 

2.4.2 Differences in the total amount payable resulting from alterations will be refunded to you in the case of a decrease in price and paid by you in the case of increases in price.

 

Special note: Generally Owners will charge the above cancellation and amendment charges, however we must stress that these are a guide only and charges may differ from those shown here depending on the Owner. The exact charges will be notified to you by the Owner at the time of cancellation and/or can be found in the Owner’s own booking conditions which are available from the Owner on request.

 

3. Changes and Cancellations by the Owner

We will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if the Owner needs to make a significant change to your confirmed Arrangements or to cancel them. 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;

OR

(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;

OR

(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. You must obtain the prior consent of the Owner before taking any pets to the property. A nightly charge may be made by the Owner for each pet and additional terms may apply.

 

9. VAT

Many of the Owners of properties in the Canopy & Stars portfolio are not registered for VAT in which case no tax is payable. Where VAT is payable, the tax is included in the advertised holiday rental price.

 

10. Visa, passport and health requirements.

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. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the Owner of the Booking, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before the commencement of your holiday.

 

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.

 

14. Maximum Numbers

Please note that except by prior arrangement confirmed in writing, only the number of persons specified on a booking confirmation may occupy  a property. Most owners reserve the right to refuse admittance or revoke a booking if this condition is not observed and you are unlikely to receive any refund.

 

15. Your Responsibilities

Please note that you have a contract with the Owner of the property. As such you are under a responsibility to behave in a proper, appropriate and legal manner whilst staying at the property with due respect to the Owner, the Property and other guests and their property. You are responsible for informing the Owner of any losses or damage to the property as soon as possible. Please note that you will be liable to pay the Owner for any losses or damage to the property caused by you or a member of your party (except reasonable wear and tear). 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.
