Off grid horse box
If you are looking for cool places to stay, the truck is for you.
The upcycled off-grid horse truck
Why not unplug and unwind on a stay in our unique converted horse truck. Freshly refurbished using reclaimed materials, this cosy space enjoys great views of the Mourne Mountains and is tucked away on a corner of our off grid smallholding in the County Down countryside. If you’re looking for cool places to stay then the off grid horsebox is for you.
A well equipped kitchen and dining area, lobby, shower room, snug with a wood burning stove and box bed are all cleverly fitted into our Ford horsebox. The truck was our home for a time before we found Lackan Cottage Farm, and we still miss living in the cosy space. Your very own herb garden, composting loo, and solar power are all part of the off-grid experience.

A unique space to relax and unwind
The truck has a big kitchen / dining room, with a full size gas cooke and plenty of storage. It also has a unique handcrafted space that uses local timbers, non-toxic finishes, and upcycled materials. The kitchen is well equipped, so you’ll find everything you need there. Hot water is provided by a combination of woodstove and gas heater, which also heat the shower.
The living room and box bed are cosy, and fitted out using reclaimed timber, mainly from heat-treated pallets. You’ll find a Stanley woodstove, which ensures you’ll always be warm and which heats the hot water in the truck, as well as a variety of hand crafted art pieces in willow and wood. Lying in bed, you have a beautiful view of the Mourne Mountains.
Enjoy the great outdoors
The truck is tucked away in a corner of our smallholding, and has it’s own deck area with seating and a chiminea. You’ll find the composting toilet not too far away, and there are a variety of herbs growing in the garden area around the truck. The back of the truck and seating area have great views across the countryside to the Mourne Mountains beyond.
