An Airbnb in the English countryside is offering guests an unlikely roommate — a miniature Shetland pony named Basil. “Basil’s Place” is a 17th-century farm-turned-Airbnb in the village of Thurgarton in Nottinghamshire.
The house on the premises is cozy and decorated with wooden country furniture, with the bedroom directly connected to Basil’s stable. The listing’s description encourages visitors to “fuss” with Basil and “give him cuddles.” The host also notes that bookings this spring will treat guests with the company of the farm’s baby lambs, Sir Lambsalot and Sir Lambsalittle. The other animals on the farm include a herd of Highland cows, Hebridean sheep, horses, chickens, and Norwegian forest cats.
