Monmouthshire mobile glamping hut is on the move after selling at auction

A glamping hut in an idyllic location in Monmouthshire will be on the move after being sold at auction.

The mobile home in Skenfrith, near Abergavenny, was sold online at auction and the new owner must find a new plot for the lot.

In a first for Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions, more used to selling lots of bricks and mortar in situ, offered the mobile glamping hut.

Angie Davey, of Paul Fosh Auctions said: “Normally the lots we sell are in situ. This one, a fitted glamping hut is not just mobile but now needs to be taken away and re located now that it has been bought at auction.

“Ahead of the sale we were expecting interest in the lot from people who have a large garden, a spare piece of land or perhaps some woodland, subject to planning, where they can get away from it all. It may also have commercial tourist-type prospects.

“The hut  is currently based on land in the historic village of Skenfrith, near Abergavenny, but the successful bidder at auction now needs to find a new site for the mobile home.

“The hut, which has a cosy loft sleeping area, is being sold as seen and will need to be transported from its current location by the purchaser.

“At present the hut has an open plan sitting/kitchen area, mezzanine sleeping area and an additional room which could be converted into a shower/cloak room. Freshly decorated and linked to an electricity supply the hut could make a great studio or children’s den or holiday/Airbnb or even a writer’s or artist’s studio, located within the purchaser’s own grounds or garden.

“The hut, which had a guide price of  £2,250-plus, sold for £2,500 after attracting five bids from a  total of four bidders.”
