“This enchanting double-decker bus houses all its original bus features inside, and is a fabulous getaway to share with your family or a couple of friends,” reads Sykes’ description of the bus.

“Conduct a lovely night in with your family, by rustling up a home-made meal in the kitchen and getting everyone together around the dining table. Later, unwind in the lounge area and take the chill off a cool winter’s evening by switching on the gas fire, as you catch up on stories from days gone by or make further plans for the duration of your trip.

“Climb the winding staircase to the bedrooms on the upper deck and find a well-appointed double room and a second seating area, with a table laid out in true bus-style, ideal for a quiet read of a good book as you catch glimpses of the fields outside.

“There is also a triple room, consisting of a standard single and two caravan single beds, perfect for the kids or a few friends, hosting panoramic vistas, making the most of this elevated position, enveloped by rural landscapes.

“To the outside is an enclosed garden, with a lawned area and picnic bench for some relaxed alfresco dining.

“You can sit out on the decking at the front and sip a refreshing beverage one balmy afternoon while the children play on the swing set to the rear.”
