NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR PETS!
The Foxglove Snug is a living van built by Marshall Sons & Co, which was a large engineering works in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. They produced agricultural machinery of all types, including threshing machinery, corn mills, steam engines, traction engines and steam rollers; and later, diesel tractors. We believe it dates from circa 1911.
The living van would have been pulled by a steam roller, and served as a home for crews working on the roads. There were two pairs of bunk beds in the van, allowing it to sleep four. It was very basic - there were no coat hooks for hanging their clothes, only nails. They would have had a stove for cooking and heating, and been furnished with only a wooden bench for sitting at the folding table.
This van was owned by the council and last used in a yard by a wages clerk for paying council workers before it was acquired by the previous owners of Tan yr Allt.
The adjacent lavatory hut is handmade from nearby larch trees, of beautiful peg and post construction.
