BACK TO SCHOOL

Escape to nature for a peaceful stay on our unique stationary American Schoolbus, nestled in its own private corner of Big Sky with garden, seating and firebowl.

 

The Schoolbus sleeps six, with an enormous super king bed to the rear and four snug single sleeping pods.

Chill out on the comfy sofa and chairs and make yourself at home in the kitchen which includes a two-hob gas cooker, sink, breakfast bar, power points and heater.

We've left the driver's seat in-tact for selfies and feet-on-the-dashboard coffee pauses.

Inside​
  • Comfy accommodation for 6; one large super king bed and four single adult sized bunk pods

  • We provide bedsheets, mattresses and toppers but ask guests to bring their own pillows, duvets (or sleeping bags), and covers

  • Kitchen with double gas burner to cook inside or al fresco

  • Crockery, cutlery, mugs and cooking equipment

  • Ice box (we regularly resupply ice as needed) to keep foodstuffs cool

  • Fresh water through kitchen tap

  • Power points throughout the bus (2000W limit so no high draw items like slow cookers or high dryers)

  • Comfy sofas

Outside​
  • Private eco loo

  • Exclusive garden for Schoolbus guests

  • Picnic bench

  • Private firebowl (we sell firewood on site)

  • Access to our community barn for additional shelter, table tennis and general chill space

The bit where we're honest:​

We're pretty confident that the unique benefits of our accommodations by far outweigh the downsides, but our site is off grid and can't offer all the shiny comforts of 5* hotel luxury, so if you like a long, hot bath on your holidays...well, you should read this before booking!

  • Buses are thin metal and lots of windows, which means they're super hard to insulate and can be cold when the climate outside is chilly. This is a strong appeal for many but if you feel the cold, choose Summer!

  • Our buses are powered by solar panels and while we do everything we can to ensure the batteries are topped up before our guests visit we can't 100% promise you'll have all-singing, all dancing power, especially during long, cloudy weeks (which are thankfully few and far between from Spring to Autumn in sunny Lincolnshire). Touch wood, we've only had one occasion when a guest didn't have power throughout - but they loved our backup plan with additional solar lights throughout and an electric generator offering three pin and USB power.

  • To avoid wasting water and the cost of providing infrastructure and mains supply across acres of land, we've opted for lower level eco friendly facilities. The toilets are composting and we ensure they stay clean and scent free, and showers are delivered in heated bags. As long as you're not expecting the Hilton, you'll be good! 

While we love animals we can't allow pets on site as they stress our alpacas out. 

We'll do everything we can to make your stay at Big Sky as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. We love surprising our guests and making your stay unique so if you have any ideas we might be able to help with don't hesitate to ask :)

COOL FACT

Once upon a time the Schoolbus featured in an earthquake movie (you might hear us refer to her as the Earthquake bus every now and then) and the central wood panelling on the kitchen side of the bus used to be a wide open hole, allowing the camera boom entry to the bus for all the shaking shots! We don't know which movie it was but it has proved to be a good excuse to watch as many as we can!

The School Bus was converted by our bus partners in crime Shred & Butta. They are masters at converting vehicles into living and working spaces and specialise in importing and converting American school buses. Here’s their origin story.
