Farmers turn horsebox into miniature hotel

Two farmers have found a way to raise extra cash after they converted a 40-year-old horsebox into a £100-a-night hotel.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>

Paul and Anne Ormond, of Banbury, Oxfordshire, spent three months turning a 1974 Bedford TK they bought on eBay into a miniature hotel.

They have installed a double bedroom above the driver's cab and fitted a sofa, woodburner and antique furniture in the back.

The "hotel", which is parked on the Ormonds' 250 acre farm, boasts views of the Oxfordshire countryside.
