Introducing the Off Grid Horse Box
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. Glamping without the camping.
A well equipped kitchen and dining area, lobby and shower room, snug with a woodburning stove, and box bed are all cleverly fitted into our Ford horsebox, which was our home for a time before we found Lackan Cottage Farm. Your very own herb garden, composting loo, and solar power are all part of the off-grid experience. This is proper off grid life without mains electricity or wifi.

A unique space to relax and unwind
The truck has a big kitchen / dining room, with a full size gas cooker, plenty of storage, and 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.
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.
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.
