Many may think there’s something a bit magical about this holiday let.
That’s because it’s a bus decked out with beds – a bit like the huge purple bus Harry Potter jumped aboard in The Prisoner of Azkaban.
However, the converted Devonshire double-decker is actually a nod to all things Agatha Christie – the owner is a huge fan of the writer. It’s called Bertram’s Hotel after the Miss Marple novel, which features a red bus on the cover, and is full of Agatha Christie books and posters.
