Holidaymakers can now enjoy the ultimate busman’s holiday by staying at this quirky Scottish hotel – made from two former buses.
Aptly, it’s called The Bus Stop.
The quirky property comprises two buses that have been converted into luxury accommodation. One is able to sleep two guests and the other four.
The smaller bus that forms half of The Bus Stop, a quirky hotel on a farm in East Lothian, Scotland, that is made from two former buses
Each bus has a spacious kitchen where guests can whip up meals while admiring the East Lothian countryside
The living room area has comfy chairs to relax in and a wood burner. The owners of the Bus Stop insist that the hotel is a ‘holiday experience with a difference’
Each bus has king-size beds, a spacious kitchen, and there is even a mini-bus that is now used as a chicken coop.
Both luxury buses are available to rent for £750 for a week’s stay, which works out at around £107 per night.
The owners of the Bus Stop – which is on Bankrugg Farm in East Lothian – say that it’s a ‘holiday experience with a difference’.
They write on the hotel website: ‘Our luxury, hand crafted accommodation is set on a working farm with beautiful panoramic views of the Lammermuir Hills, in the stunning East Lothian countryside.
‘Our converted buses offer a unique holiday experience with a touch of luxury.

‘The roof above your bed has been replaced with glass, allowing you to sleep under the stars and enjoy the tranquility of the countryside.
‘Each bus also includes a wood burning stove, creating a cosy, romantic atmosphere on cooler nights.
‘Furthermore, take time out for you, relax and retreat from the world in your own private wood fired hot tub on your private decking area.’
The Bus Stop is situated on a working arable farm, home to alpacas, horses, sheep and chickens.
The kitchens have all the mod cons – two-ring hobs, kettles, toasters and fridges and freezers
All aboard for a great night’s sleep: The hotel boasts king-size beds in bedrooms that look delightfully snug

The farm also boasts a number of old buses in various stages of restoration, which gave the owners the idea for the hotel.
The hotel description adds: ‘The bus enthusiasts who restore these buses were the inspiration behind the Bus Stop.
‘You might even be surprised to come across an old bus that used to transport you around the country as a child.
‘For extra comfort and ease during your stay with us, we have converted one of the stable blocks into a small farm larder, supplying a few essentials such as wine, beer, ice cream, milk, bread and eggs (freshly laid on the farm hopefully!)’
Egg-cellent: A number of old buses in various stages of restoration can be found on the farm. The one pictured is used as a quirky chicken coop
Yolking aside: The farm’s chickens provide guests with fresh eggs. They are stored in the farm’s larder, which is also stocked with wine, beer, ice cream and milk
