Experience the sensation of true freedom on the open road on this adventure entirely of your own choosing in an iconic VW campervan. Whether you take the camper van for a couple of nights to explore the stunning scenery of the Lake District, or you decide to go a bit further afield, this is one adventure that will live long in the memory.
Pick up your campervan from your starting point just outside the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales, and from there, it’s totally up to you where you travel. Note: Pick up is on Monday or Friday only.
Head to the Lakes and cruise through mountain scenery, stopping for hikes wherever you feel like it and camping in gorgeous beauty spots, or within handy reach of a great local pub.
Or you could drive to the Yorkshire Dales, where the scenery can be equally stunning, often without the crowds. The real draw of this experience is the ability to get properly off the beaten track, as you plan your own routes and simply enjoy your holiday at your own pace.
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous and have a little time on your hands, why not drive up towards Scotland, drinking in some of the best driving roads and scenery that Europe has to offer. These classic vans are for enjoying a relaxing sojourn in some of the Islands most gorgeous scenery rather than clocking up the miles, but if you do pootle up to Scotland you can camp in true wilderness, waking up to nothing but the sounds of nature before settling outside for a morning cuppa.
Wherever you go with one of these cute and iconic campervans, we can guarantee that by the time you have to part with her, back in Lancaster, you’ll have developed a strong bond with your little mobile home, and will already be planning your next trip with Heidi, Winnie or Daisy.
Heidi is the youngest (newest) in the fleet – a newly refurbished, 2012 VW campervan in a fetching shade of green. She comes with everything you need to have an incredible journey around the Lake District in total comfort, including a kitchen, heating, power sockets, a fridge, and a rear showerhead.
Winnie is our bright, cheerful orange campervan, kept in incredible condition since she was manufactured in 1971. She’s a 4 birth camper and comes with a heater, a mains hook up, a fully equipped kitchen and fridge, and a gas cooker.
Our very first campervan, Daisy is a summery shade of yellow and was also built in 1971. Newly refurbished, she comes with all the same amenities as Winnie, and is the perfect vehicle for your adventures around the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and beyond.
Please make sure you read all the FAQS before you book, you’ll have to be at least 25 to drive, and provide not only your driving license but also proof of address for the insurance cover, and there is a £500 deposit to pay by bank transfer or credit card the day before pick up. This is fully refundable on returning the van undamaged.
