Glorious garden greenery caravan

Caravanning brings joy to people in so many different ways and we really enjoyed reading a letter on the Daily Mirror website earlier this month from a keen gardener who’s incorporated a traditional wooden gypsy caravan into her green fingered endeavours.

Carol Klein received the unusual garden feature from her husband Neil as a birthday present and she immediately fell in love with it.

Rather than arranging plants and shrubs around a traditional shed or summerhouse, Mrs Klein turned the wooden structure – which features a painted exterior by famous caravan decorator Laurel Thompson – into the focal point of her outdoor space.

In additional to being a quirky conversational point, the caravan provides ideal shelter if she wishes to be out in the fresh air when the weather is poor and it also creates a viewing platform to admire the rest of the garden.

Mrs Klein is in the minority, however, as most of us prefer to use our caravan for something a little more mainstream! Although we don’t insure wooden caravans, Coast does offer market value touring caravan insurance for leisure vehicles up to 20 years old and ‘new for old’ cover on tourers up to 15 years old.
