3 mins read


The 52-year-old mum of four teenagers has been able to drastically cut back her working hours as a sustainability consultant since letting out her quirky campervan on Airbnb. She told Express.co.uk how she’s turned her quaint corner in the quarry into a goldmine.

Being a mother to four teenagers doesn’t come cheap.

52-year-old George who lives on the outskirts of St Briavels, on the edge of the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean, knows this only too well.

She told Express.cok how she has turned her love of the outdoors into a money making side hustle.

George said: “We’ve always been ‘van people’ travelling, spending summers living in nature and going to festivals with our kids.”

George continued: “We got wind of a brand-new TV makeover show ‘My Unique B&B’ and applied.

“We were successful and during the first year of the pandemic in between lockdowns we worked on the conversion.”

No ordinary van, Cosmo boasts a cosy bedroom and a hand-crafted kitchen as well as a warming log burner.

An outdoor bathroom boasts a claw foot bath where guests can soak and watch the clouds float by, or on a clear night, enjoy a relaxing soak under the stars.

She continues: “I love it because it gives me options for how I want to work and live and means I can be at home more on our land, with the animals and kids!

“That flexibility is really important to me, especially with the children.”

When asked if she’d recommend this option to others, she replied “Absolutely. Once you’re up and running and you get used to it it’s an easy way of supplementing income and can lead to a more flexible and free life.

“And we’ve met some really lovely people through the experience – it can be great fun.

“I’d say make yourself stand out. It’s a competitive business.

“It’s been a huge adventure and we certainly don’t have any regrets.”
