I hired Chris’s camper van for myself and partner for his 30th for 2 nights. Chris explained everything we needed to know about the van before we left and we had somewhere secure to leave our car.
The camper itself was very clean, well looked after and easy to use. We had such a great time in the New Forest exploring we asked Chris if we could hire it for a further night to which he arranged with no fuss, thanks Chris!
We will definitely be using it again, as soon as we are allowed! We definitely recommend using this business.

Chris and Helen take great pride in their camper, and the experience you will have if you rent it. From the moment you make an enquiry you will be reassured by the swiftness and clarity of communication. They take the time to answer all your questions, either via this site or by phone (both in our case!) On your trip they keep in touch via text, but not in an intrusive way, just to make sure that all is well.

On pick-up they will swiftly take you through the campervan manual, showing you the most important things you will need to know. But accept that if you are new to this, there is a lot to learn (which is all part of the fun!) and you will discover things for yourselves, too.

We found the van to be spotlessly clean on pick-up, and although it is not new, it drives beautifully and is obviously well-maintained. Despite being four complete novices, with far too much luggage (we had loads of walking gear as well as personal stuff) it only took us 10 minutes to turn the van from driving mode into sleeping mode on our first night (at the Fatted Lamb pub just outside Kirkby Stephen, go to campercontact for loads of cheap and free spaces to 'wild camp'), leaving time for a start-of-holiday pint. Bonus: half price breakfast the next day through the eat out to help out scheme, before completing our journey into the Highlands. Here we added the drive-away awning to our campervan repetoire: whilst you feel less mobile, knowing that it will take time to pack it all away, it adds greatly to storage space, and relieves pressure on the campervan itself with the extra space. Driving away is easy, you just need someone to hold on to the awning. Re-connecting is not so straightforward, you will need a PhD in reversing and willing helpers who won't get stressed out as you go back and forth, either too far away or too close. The other thing that happened was finding someone had pitched their tent where our campervan needed to be to reconnect to the awning on returning from a hard day in the mountains. Top tip: mark out your territory before driving away, perhaps with a few rocks or branches, even consider leaving a note. OK, it's a first-world problem, easily solved (our new neighbours helped us to relocate the awning a couple of meters and we were sorted) but best avoided in the first place.

Other than that, everything went very smoothly. After a few days of basing ourselves at a campsite, we decided to move around more, dispensing with the awning. We soon became very proficient at turning the campervan from driving to living to sleeping mode, enjoyed a few evenings of cooking meals in the van, playing cards and listening to music (great bluetooth system, so load up your phones!) afterwards.

All in all, this turned out to be a fantastic holiday. I had reservations leading up to it: how would four adults with lots of luggage cope in the limited space? What about toilet/washing facilities? But providing you stay at the odd campsite, eat out sometimes, and generally get out and about, the campervan gives you a sense of freedom to explore that you is unrivalled.

And Chris and Helen are the most wonderful people you could wish to rent a campervan from, they really do care about their van, and that you have a great time. 10/10, thoroughly recommended.
