August 2018 - Mr & Mrs Loughlin, Co Durham, England

Thank you so much for all your help and support for our holiday in one of your vans last week. The weather was fabulous and so was the route you recommended to us. Your plan of the West Coast Route was easy to follow and we saw some fab places along the way. There was everything we needed in the van and it felt like holidaying with a hotel on wheels, with different views each day and wild camping along the way, I would highly recommend your company to hire a van from!
Hope to see you again in a couple of years!

October 2018 - Mr & Mrs Hudson , Chesterfield , England

We enjoyed our time in the Motor Home from the word go and had 2 weeks of complete relaxation and enjoyment. We always felt that if we needed you (like when we needed to find Cove) that you would be there to help and found that very reassuring. Thanks for a wonderful holiday, it won’t be our last!
