Lovely campervan Cyril has loads of character. Warren and Jacqui were friendly and helpful, with lots of info on how everything works. Thankyou! October 2023

I had a marvellous adventure on Cyril! He has everything you’d need for a comfy road trip camping holiday, neatly and tidily at hands reach and in such good condition. For 30 years old, Cyril is still as handsome as ever 🤭 and all his moving parts work a treat. Considering his size, lots of cute features, quite a lot of storage space and lots of light and headroom. And it’s so easy to book through Goboony and Warren and Jacqui have some really useful videos that explain all his features. A success trip all round! Many thanks August 2023

Cyril was an absolute joy. After an initial ten or so minutes getting our bearings on the driving side of things, we got on our way and had a fab 4 nights. He’s an old boy but very well equipped and everything worked like a dream. We both showered daily, the fridge kept everything cool. The cooker everything we needed, the hot water system very efficient and the bed compact but very comfortable. We had great a nights sleep every night. We very much hope to use him again in the future! Warren and Jacqui were great communicators and provide videos to explain how everything worked. Overall we had a great experience. Thank you 😊 July 2023

My daughter and I spent three nights in Cyril, wild camping. We picked Cyril up with clear instructions on access to the pickup point, but there were no instructions on how to work the facilities. Maybe if we had been parked at a campsite, we could have just plugged in, but we only managed to work the gas for the cooker off-grid. I didn't know how to turn the pump on for the water or the heater. We also had trouble arranging the bed, which was very uncomfortable. My daughter is a bit taller than I am and could not stretch her legs out on what is described as a king size bed. In the itinerary it mentioned linens, all we found was an uninviting mattress cover and a not so clean sheet! I am pleased we took some sleeping bags. Driving Cyril was an experience! Our first issue was not being able to close the drivers-side door, it took some slamming to finally get it to latch shut. Then while driving down the country lanes the side door flew open and my daughter had to hold onto it while I found a safe place to pull over and then spend five minutes trying to get that door to latch shut. We tried not to use those doors again! You have to double-clutch 1st, 2nd and reverse gears. It made getting back into my 30year old van (with no power steering) feel like driving a Tesla. I am happy to say we didn't drive far away from the pickup point, but finding a petrol station on the way back that had a vacuum to clean out the back was problematic. During our search for a vacuum, someone bumped into Cyril and knocked his back bumper off so we gave up and suffered the cleaning costs. Warren was very good about the bumper, and replaced it himself. But I was a little dismayed by their cleaning practices, (especially in these days) as they clearly do not venture to a deep clean between guests, if they had, they would have found the items that they said were missing. Obviously they were found with closer inspection. May 2023

Jacqui was an excellent host. She was available for questions and concerns throughout our trip and provided clear instructions via video. As a novice campervan user I was a little nervous especially going back to using a manual. Cyril is 100% retro and a challenge but what an adventure. By the end of our 6 day trip I had mastered Cyril, he managed every challenging hill/ mountain and I was a little sad to hand him back. We covered about 700 miles over the 6 days, showered, ate and slept in him. He provided everything we needed for 2 adults and 2 dogs(although very snug), would I do it again YES 100%. There is a Decent CD player, essential to make the experience through Wales authentic with Tom Jones blasting out. Thank you Jacqui for holiday I shall never forget.

Cyril was great! We went to a festival in him, and it was perfect! Hot shower, hob, grill, toilet etc, which was very needed! We would definitely hire him again! 😊 June 2022

Jacqui could not have been more friendly and helpful. Cyril was well equipped and immaculately clean. We enjoyed our time with him! Just one thing though - the retro experience does also extend to the clutch and gearbox - I got the hang of it reasonably quickly, but it may be something you wish to bear in mind. September 2021

Jacqui and Warren are lovely people and their campervan is perfect. We were looking for a retro camper, and a cosy one, and Cyril offered exactly this. He is fun to drive, good on fuel, and you can pack alot of stuff into his nooks and crannies! If you want a 90s feel, comfortable, homely camper then this is for you. No hassle with the rental.

Owners were lovely, couldn't do enough. Brilliant links and how too guides. They clearly love Cyril and care about who has fun with the motor home. Shows through and through in the detail ❤️ August 2021

Cyril is a lovely camper with a great character. We took him on a mini break and had so much fun. He might be getting on, but he manages those hills and handles well. The toilet and shower are good to have but in fairness very limited in space, (only to be expected) so we opted to use the site showers etc. Cyril has all you need onboard, and Jacqui supplies the basics, salt, pepper, tea bags and coffee, tea clothes etc. everything seemed to work fine. Jacqui and Warren were super friendly, very helpful and flexible. Jacqui gave us some wonderful fresh eggs from her cute hens which run free on their property. Very happy with our hire experience and we both fell in love with Cyril. June 2021

I had a fun weekend with “Cyril”. Inside I had everything I needed. Jacqui provides the basics like tea, coffee, salt and pepper, toilet roll and cleaning items. You just need a sleeping bag and food. The fridge works off the car battery when driving and gas when parked. Everything worked well. Maybe not suitable for an inexperienced driver as the clutch has character! June 2021
