Gardeners Yvonne and Gary Harris have grown their passion into a blossoming business after turning a battered old horse box into a plush hotel room on wheels.<br />
<br />
The 1975 Bedford horse box had been rotting in a farmer's field for a decade before they snapped it up for a few thousand pounds and transformed it into a 135 pounds-a-night bolthole.<br />
<br />
Yvonne, 54, and Gary, 46, both landscape gardeners, had planned to use their one-of-a-kind creation themselves for romantic escapes but it proved so popular with friends they have turned it into a booming business.<br />
<br />
The horsebox – which the couple have named Ges – has been such a hit that it is now booked up for three months in advance.<br />
<br />
It is based in a wildflower meadow in Chiddingfold, Surrey, but can be driven to anywhere within a 40-mile radius for special occasions.<br />
<br />
Ges is the latest addition to a host of unique places to stay managed by Bristol-based Canopy and Stars.
