More and more unique alternative homes are popping up all around the world. It seems like people are also getting more and more creative with how they build them; using anything from shipping containers to old trucks and busses.
Meet the Majestic Bus — a renovated 1968 Bedford Panorama bus that has been transformed into a tranquil and relaxing weekend retreat.
The bus-turned-hotel is located in Radnorshire, Wales and is completely surrounded by rolling hills, wildlife, and gorgeous wildflowers. Accommodations can comfortably sleep up to four people; however, there is plenty of space for extra guests to pitch tents outside.
Once inside, it’s easy to see why the bus was called a ‘panorama’ bus; large windows surround the entire space, allowing tons of natural light and views of the surrounding nature.
The eco-friendly bus has essentially been converted into one large, long, and narrow living space containing a kitchen, living room, sleeping area, and dining nook. No matter which area of the bus you’re in, sprawling views of the countryside are sure to follow.
The kitchen is tiny but has all the essentials for guests to cook a simple meal or heat up a nice cup of tea.
The two-burner stove is powered by gas, while the rest of the bus’ electricity comes from solar. All of the kitchen cabinetry and countertops were handmade with oak. There is also a sink and mini-fridge for guests to store perishables.
Another view of the kitchen, looking toward the front of the bus, shows the driver’s area that has been converted into an adorable dinette.
Imagine enjoying a nice meal or glass of wine while gazing out at the rolling hills. Oh, and if you’re staying in the Majestic Bus? Expect to have freshly-cut wildflowers from the property brought to your quarters every day.
The living and seating space feature a large L-shaped couch that also folds to serve as a double bed.
Draw the curtains for nighttime privacy, or have them open for endless rays of sunshine. Beautiful wood flooring flows throughout the entire room.
The gorgeous sleeping nook is on the opposite side of the room; the king bed spans the width of the bus.
Both the seating area and sleeping nook are perfectly located next to the wood stove. The stove keeps the bus warm enough to stay in all year round. Whether it’s a sunny summer day or a snowy winter night, the Majestic Bus is a cozy sanctuary.
Need to use the restroom? No problem, just mosey outside to the separate bath house.
The modern and beautiful bathroom with rustic charm features a bathtub, shower, and wood stove to keep the room warm during chilly nights and colder months.
When guests aren’t enjoying the inside of their charming retreat, they can enjoy the outdoor firepit and wood deck as well.
There’s no doubt that the Majestic Bus lives up to its name. What a beauty.
