A 1960s bus gets a new life as a cosy cottage

Located just outside of Hay-on-Wye, a small town in Wales famous for its second-hand and antiquarian book shops, this charming little spot was lovingly converted from a 1960s bus. The tiny space features a fully-equipped kitchen, a surprisingly spacious living room, a patio area, and a dining nook that makes use of the original steering wheel. Solar panels attached to the roof power all utilities, save for the gas stovetop. The cottage is lovingly known as the Majestic Bus—a perfectly apt name for a space that’s as cosy and whimsical as the treasured book shops nearby.
