Cyril the Talbot is your luxury campervan. He has all the comforts of a motorhome but he drives like a car, fits into carparks and is economical . He has too many features to list but is cosy and easy to drive. We have had many adventures in Cyril and look forward to helping you create yours. Cyril has a bathroom with a compact hot water shower, hand basin and toilet. The kitchen has a 2 burner hob, grill, fridge with icebox and basin with hot and cold water. The cabin has 2 large, comfortable sofas that convert into 2 single beds or a large double big enough for 2 tall people and a small child. You can even stand in Cyril. He comes with full cuttlery and cooking utensils and free linen and towels if required. Applicances are operated by 12v, gas or mains hookup allowing a full off grid holiday. Gas central heating will keep you toasty warm while the many windows provide plenty of natural light and cool airflow in the summer months. Privacy and blackout blinds along with super comfortable beds will make sure you have a great night's sleep . Cyril has a 2.0 litre petrol engine and is a manual, purpose built campervan (not converted). He has air suspension and is a dream to drive. He has 3 belted seats. Everything is orginal and was factory installed. No strange little nuances/ workarounds needed with Cyril like other budget campers!!!! Just jump in and drive :) Fuel Tank 70 litres Freshwater Tank 54.8 litres Greywater Tank 36.4 litres Toilet 10 litres Appliances gas 12v and mains hookup LOCATION: I am a 60 minute train ride from London Waterloo and 7 minute taxi ride OR you can leave your car at my secure home while you go walkabout with Cyril WHAT TO EXPECT: *Cyril is fully kitted out and has everything you need. For a campervan, he is spacious. Being a retro camper expect a compact bathroom, analog vs digital and mechanical vs computerised. Just like pop's old camper!!

Just returned from a fabulous few days in Cyril. What a great camper for trying out before we consider buying a similar model. We ventured to the New Forest and Cyril was well equipped and suited all our needs. We picked him up in good clean condition and some great touches from the owners to ensure a comfortable hire. We slept great all four nights!! He is an older van but still solid and practical. Would recommend familiarising yourself with the gears before driving off but once that’s done you’ll be on your way. He started reliably each time we moved sites and would recommend you give him a try!

Jacqui and Warren are great to rent from, they are really chill about everything and very communicative when u need them! On collection day, Warren was very honest about some of the “quirks” of an older camper which we soon got to grips with, nothing major just fiddly door handle, high clutch etc. The camper drove like a dream and we just dropped him off but miss him already! Throughout the trip, we were both commenting on some of the bigger campers we saw and the trouble they were having with the narrow roads of wales and parking etc so we were grateful that Cyril simply felt like a large car to drive and park. Thanks again Jacqui and Warren, recommend to anyone x

What a great experience, Cyril is a perfect gent. A bit quirky, to be expected for a 40 plus year old but spotless and a high quality construction in original condition. Some wear and tear obviously but all explained by Jacquelin and no issues at all. A great week long Christian Youth festival in Norfolk with 8k teenagers! They loved Cyril.
