I had the honour this month of visiting the home of my yoga teacher Natalie. She lives in this converted Bedford horsebox in the Dorset countryside.

Her home consists of a single open plan living space containing a double bed, kitchenette, sitting area and a separate shower room with WC and hand basin. All the fittings are made from reclaimed materials and the shower head has been crafted from an old trumpet! Rainwater is collected, filtered and stored for use, a wood burning stove provides ample heat and solar panels harness the sun for electricity.

A fantastic example of how to live with less and make a minimal impact on the environment.
