This Double Decker Bus Is Decked Out—As a Vacation Rental
With the rise of eco-friendly vacation options, traveling green has become less of chore for those who choose to get in a bit of rest and relaxation without sacrificing the well-being of the planet. One of the more charming sustainable retreats we’ve come across is the 1964 Leyland Titan Double Decker Bus. The converted bus is located on Ceridwen Centre, a renowned 40-acre organic farm in West Wales’ Teifi Valley.
If you’ve ever fallen asleep on a bus, odds are it wasn’t the most restful experience (neck crooks are the worst!). The Leyland, however, offers the opposite experience. The unique dwelling has a double bedroom and double bathroom upstairs and a sofa bed downstairs, which comfortably accommodates six guests. In addition to cozy sleeping quarters, the double-decker bus also features a dining area and kitchen on the lower level. The space is stocked with a sink, a refrigerator and all new appliances. There are also a pair of showers, a separate toilet and sink located in outside in what’s referred to as the “bus stop.” The bus also has a deck and outdoor furniture for guests to take in the views of the valley.
The bus is also equipped with linens, bath towels, wool blankets, kitchen utensils, cookware and glassware, and plenty of storage space beneath the beds. A travel cot can also be supplied upon request. Guests are encouraged to bring outdoor shoes and beach towels. There are two parking spaces available on the grounds.
In keeping with the Ceridwen Centre’s commitment to the environment, labeled bins and signs encourage guests to recycle during their stay. Also, all heating is powered by solar energy or biomass, as is the hot water. Two photovoltaic panels are responsible for providing most of the electricity. All lighting is provided by low energy bulbs, and electrical equipment is set to standby when left for a short period of time and completely powered off at night.
