Specialist Caravan Builders.
French Roulottes, Showman's Wagons, English Gypsy Vardo and Circus wagons.

As seen in in Gardens Illustrated, Period Living and The Tiny Living magazines.

We build and design caravans for private customers and small businesses. We have also worked with larger commercial customers such as The National Trust, Folly Farm (adventure park and zoo) and Gisela Graham of London.

Established in 2010, Fernhills is a small family business specialising in French and English caravans. Every model has been designed by us from the wheels up but we have taken care to ensure that the overall look is still sympathetic to the original. 

External designs and interior layouts are drawn using 3D modelling software which helps you visualise the end product before the build starts. We don't mass produce or have a factory mentality. We only build one caravan at a time so your build has our full attention.

Don't just take our word for it, we build some of the finest caravans in the UK. 

"Wonderful craftmanship, absolutely delighted with our caravan"

"We have visited many shows and Shepherd's hut builders this year but came to Fernhills to build our bespoke Circus wagon - they exceeded our expectations. The level of detail is incredible"

"We have been fully booked since purchasing our Grande Roulotte, our customers love it!! Fernhills were very professional and the standard of their work is superb"

"I can't thank Fernhills enough, it really is a beautiful caravan and something we can pass on to the grand kids"

"So impressed with our first wagon that we bought another one just for family and friends. Marc kept us informed with weekly build updates and added those little touches that make these so special"

Bespoke Work

gypsy caravan interior.jpg

If you don't see a design you like or would like something built from your own drawings then please get in touch and see if we can help.

I spent over 25 years as a boat fitter and joiner which has given me a wealth of experience designing small spaces and working along side customers from a simple pencil sketch to the finished product.

Want something different? We are capable of building anything (as long as it fits in our workshop). Commissions undertaken. It doesn't cost anything to ask.

Let us turn your ideas into reality.
