STUNNING CONVERSION OF AN AMERICAN SCHOOL BUS
Cabin · 4 guests
Instant bookInstant book
Skoolie Stays is an icon of the American road, lovingly converted into luxurious accommodation in Sussex. It offers up to 4 guests a chance to stay in fantastically unusual accommodation in a beautiful part of Sussex close to the South Downs National Park.

The bus was inspired by the owners' 14,000 mile, year-long family road trip across America in a similar Skoolie. They fell in love with bus life and, when it came time to return to the UK, the whole family agreed - they had to ship one back to the UK.

The Skoolie Stays bus is a product of the knowledge and skills they developed over their year away, full of clever ideas and hand-built, design-led decor. Every element has been thought out in detail to maximise space, comfort, freedom, and fun. You will find lots of original features, repurposed and reimagined furniture, and top-of-the-range fixtures and fittings that help to make off-grid living comfortable, practical, and environmentally friendly.

Skoolie Stays comfortably sleeps up to 4 people in a king-size bed (2 guests) and 6ft murphy-style bunks (2 guests) that fold away when not in use. The kitchen provides plenty of space to cook and the American-style diner area, complete with the original bus seats and incorporates an old teak table from a local secondary school, is the perfect place for a meal. Oak herringbone floors, leather sofa, and a clean-burning log stove make the lounge area feel cosy and luxurious and the fully-tiled bathroom offers lovely hot showers.

When the sun goes down, step out onto the deck to watch the stars or warm up at the outdoor firepit.

What you get:

1. Master bedroom with a king-sized bed (sleeps 2) with storage for bags and wraparound windows. 
2. 43 square foot Sun Deck raised above the fields – perfect for morning coffees and late nights stargazing.
3. ‘Murphy’ style fold away bunk-beds (sleeps 2 children or adults up to 6ft), cleverly-designed to fold-up during the day.  
4. Full kitchen with a double burner gas-stove top, fridge, large sink and plenty of storage and surface space. 
5. ‘American diner’ eating area, made from the original recycled bus-seats and a vintage teak school table. 
6. Bathroom with fully tiled shower and a top-of-the-range composting toilet (no smells and no wasted water, helping you reduce the impact of your weekend away on the natural environment).  
7. Cosy lounge with a clean-burning log stove and a comfy leather sofa.
8. Plenty of USB electrical points – we have 2400W of solar power (plenty to charge your gadgets).
9. Super-cool driver’s cab area with all the original buttons and levers.
10. A cosy rural hideaway for all seasons and all weathers.
