Texas School Bus – an authentic, beautifully converted American School Bus for a memory-filled and Insta-worthy stay on a welcoming Suffolk site full of fun and adventure.
Freshly retired from the highways of Houston, Texas School Bus is the iconic split-screen American Yellow School Bus – or ‘Skoolie’ for aficionados – lovingly converted into a truly unique Glamping retreat.
Gloriously spacious, there’s plenty to delight couples, families, and groups of friends alike. For starters, you’ll have a proper kitchen to whip up your own school dinners complete with a gas oven, hob, grill, sink, and cooking equipment galore (There’s even a seriously cool fridge freezer, to help you chill those essential holiday tipples!)
Enjoy gastronomic delights at the dining table while enjoying the views through the panoramic windows, or outside enjoying a sizzling sunset supper on the barbecue.
With toasty underfloor heating and a clean-burning wood stove you’ll be gorgeously snug.
There’s a thoughtfully-chosen selection of books and games on board, and if music’s more your thing, remember to bring your Bluetooth speaker and choose your own groove.
You could even plonk yourself down in the driver’s seat if you like…with the original cab fully intact, you can travel anywhere your imagination cares to take you!
When it’s finally time to turn in, you’ll discover a king-sized John Lewis bed to the rear dressed in Egyptian cotton sheets and a gorgeous duvet. Flanked by windows, you’ll wake up to stunning scenery. If you miss out on claiming this for yourself, you’ll also find two comfy, John Lewis full-sized singles, and a really good sofa bed too.
Freshen up with a shower and fluffy towels (there’s even an illuminated mirror and a plug socket for your hairdryer!) then it’s on with the important business of planning your day.
Parked at Church View Campsite @ the Suffolk Academy your cosy bus couldn’t be in a better spot for all kinds of adventure - from archery and karate to boot camp and an assault course! Here you’ll also find a fully-licensed bar, a shop, and delicious food at some walkable pubs if you don’t feel like self-catering.
Set within easy reach of Cambridge, Newmarket and Ipswich too, your epic school trip starts here!
