Daphne's Caravans ('Magical retreats to bring your dreams to life') are not all shepherds' huts but they are all certainly lovely. The business has been running since 1996 when Daphne started work on an old farm wagon - in a floor space of just 11' by 3 1/2', she has a bed, cushioned bench, flip-up table, shelves and a tall cupboard, as well as storage space under the bed and bench. As well as providing bespoke caravans she also runs a DIY Caravan School in which she teaches pupils how to build their own over a couple of weeks in the summer. Pictured above is her Sherwood Forest caravan, designed as both living space and studio.
