A former Fire Service truck turned into a bizarre two person living space. Confused? We were too, but read on…
Ladies and gentlemen…The Beer Moth. This bizarre truck, following a stint as the B&B (Bed & Buckfast) stage at Inshriach’s own Insider Festival, has settled in its present location on Inshriach Estate. Walter, the creator of the Inshriach Yurt, has truly excelled himself in his seemingly never ending quest for a renovation challenge. Having liberated this 1956 Commer Q4 from the Manston Fire Museum in Kent and wrestled it back to Inshriach House, he has quite literally raised the roof (by a foot). Then he laid an oak parquet floor rescued from a Tudor mansion, salvaged snooker table slate to make a hearth and a fire escape to make a staircase. The Beer Moth now also sports a completely over the top Victorian double bed, the door from one of the (now presumably a little drafty) cottages at the farm, and the former back wall of the doghouse. The mahogany plinth has been replaced with a wood-burner, the inexplicable stuffed squirrel has vacated the premises, and the cutting edge of unusual places to stay has been delighting (and slightly bemusing) guests ever since.
