Motorhome and Campervan Hire in Cilfynydd
Matt and Emma were very efficient in their correspondence and everything ran smoothly. Matt takes you around the quirks of the camper (it is over 40 years old) in detail. If you are not used to driving a left hand drive it might take some getting used to especially the gears, but that all adds to the adventure you'll have in Bessie. It has a more powerful engine than a normal camper so motorway and overtaking is not a problem. It can sleep four and the way the top opens to create the second double bed is really simple. We went to Goodwood Revival in it and was a much better choice than a tent. Bessie will put a smile on your face.
Matthew and Emma were excellent 'hosts' , responded promptly and were helpful and communicative. We very much enjoyed our stay and trip with Bessie. The double bed was much more comfortable than I had expected and we slept well. It was great that there were phone charger points from the leisure battery and the sound system was excellent too and we were able to use bluetooth for Spotify. The camper was simple to use and the roof folds up and down easily. Driving takes a little getting used to as finding second gear can be hit and miss..but to me that's part of the fun and adventure of driving a vintage vehicle, getting to know it's quirks. We would highly recommend hiring Bessie. Francisca
Absolutely brilliant service from a really committed family run company. Nothing was too much trouble at all including figuring out how best to provide somewhere to sleep for our nine month old, entertaining our kids whilst we packed the van and responding to any questions we had. There also not deposit grabbers like some company - could not recommend them highly enough. Thanks Phil and Bev for a top notch holiday!
What a brilliant weekend in what can only be described as a cool retro VW! Matt and Emma were so helpful throughout. The induction was invaluable in showing us all we needed to know. Lots of great equipment for a camping trip: inside and outside stove, gas heater, cutlery, blankets, etc. Having never been in a campervan before we now have the bug! Thank you, Sam and Fi
My fiancé and I took Bessie to this year’s Glastonbury Festival and the experience was just great. The camper is beautifully well maintained and its hosts were lovely and more than accommodating; can’t begin to express how good a working hob and kettle was on a Glasto hangover - thanks for the teabags - and the leisure battery and gas means you can charge your gadgets, chill to music and enjoy any home comforts entirely ‘off grid’. Driving the van is a pleasure, though as with any unfamiliar vehicle it took me the first couple of corners to get used to the gears! Thankfully, again, Bessie’s owners clearly went through everything I could need to know in regards to smoothly controlling the old gal before I set off. The engine is powerful enough to not leave you dawdling like a tractor, the left-hand drive is really no different to the standard UK style, and you get the added bonus of just driving an awesome piece of history. So yeah, can’t recommend it enough - we’ve rented massive modern ‘About Schmidt’ style motor homes in the past for triple the price and would never do it again after this. Go on, do something cool with your summer.
