Frequently Asked Questions About Our Airstreams

Do you have a Welcome/Information booklet for guests?

Is the water in the Airstreams drinkable?

Yes, it is mains water.

How many people can sleep in an Airstream?

Beth the Blue sleeps 5 adults and Gloria sleeps 4. For insurance, liability and space reasons we cannot accommodate more than these numbers. (If you have more than three children, however, contact us to talk about your booking.)
Please contact us directly about your booking if your family is more than five people, we can supply for a small fee, a tiny caravan that sleeps 2. The maximum guest limit is generally geared to the number of adults who can stay legally and comfortably in the caravans, but clearly if you have four children under 10, for example, and you are happy with the sleeping arrangements on offer, this would not be a problem.
