We had a wonderful holiday in Fred. We travelled all around Wales, myself, my husband and our dog. Fred was comfortable, warm and well equipped. We wanted for nothing except maybe some sunshine. The whole experience was made easy and exciting with the help and assistance of Lucy and Chris. This was our first time in a campervan but we felt well prepared after watching the YouTube videos Lucy sent us and the patient explanations and demonstrations from both Lucy and Chris. We will be back! Thank you so much West Country Camper Hire. Ann and Gary

My wife and I hired Arthur for a Long weekend as a try before we buy. Lucy and Chris were absolutely brilliant throughout. The information about how to use everything was detailed but not overwhelming. The use of videos ( all backed up with a comprehensive hand book in the van) made Getting “ acquainted “ before the hire started much simpler. There was nothing more we could have asked for, they had thought of everything. When we returned Arthur the hand over was again very friendly and efficient and we the security deposit was back in our account very promptly. Would throughly recommend Lucy & Chris ( and Arthur)without hesitation

We had a great time away in the van which we hired from West Country VW Campervans.All the equipment you would need was included.Lucy was brilliant in showing us how to safely set up the bed and awning and turning on the gas etc.Fred II was great to drive and easy to set up once we arrived at our destination and we knew Lucy and Chris were only a phone call away if we had any problems.A perfect way to try out a campervan before buying – we are hooked.Thanks to Lucy and Chris for the use of Fred. Highly recommended.

We had a fabulous trip. The camper was beautifully presented and well kitted out. The booking and return process was seamless and we were kept informed throughout the process. Jo is a real pleasure to deal with and I would strongly recommend their service to anybody that wants to dip their toe into the campervan world.

Fabulous in all aspects. Owners are so accommodating and positive whilst being very relaxed. We hired Fred ll and couldn’t fault a thing, had a great long weekend away made all the more special in the Van. Highly recommended and we will definitely hire again in the future.

Spent a wonderful weekend in 'Fred II' with my daughter staying at the Badminton Horse Trials campsite. We were also newbies to the delights of VW campers and 'Fred' (along with Jo and Roger) provided the perfect initiation. A beautifully presented and equipped van which surpassed our expectations for comfort and facilities. 'Fred' was much admired! Special thanks to Jo and Roger for their excellent and patient briefing and support manual incase you forgot anything!

This was my first experience of holidaying in a Campervan and Jo & Roger were most helpful in responding to my questions prior to my holiday. I hired "Arthur" for 10 days in mid Sept 2021 and I was extremely lucky with some late summer weather. I stayed at 3 separate campsites and really enjoyed the freedom that this type of holiday offers."Arthur" was fully kitted out with just about everything you could possibly need for a holiday on the road, including an integrated warm air heater. Even a padded mattress topper was provided which made the bed really comfortable.Based on my experience, I would strongly recommend you take the time to view all the YouTube videos Roger & Jo have created - they clearly demonstrate how to set-up the campervan and they will reinforce the practical demonstration you are given when you collect the campervan. I would also suggest taking a small pop-up tent to use for storing bulky items / extra baggage whilst staying on your campsite. This will allow you to have much easier access to the various storage compartments within the campervan. I hope you enjoy your holiday as much as I did.

This was our first campervan holiday experience and, thanks to Jo and Roger (and Fred), we had an amazing time! Fred was really the star of the show. He is stylish & smart.Fred contained everything we needed for a comfortable holiday and Jo & Roger couldn't have been more helpful with making sure that we were happy with everything before we set off. We were really impressed with the solar power, as we were off grid for 4 days, and everything worked well.I would really recommend this to newbies like us!

We would highly recommend West Country VW Camper Hire - Jo and Roger were friendly and attentive from our first interaction and the van was perfect for our trip to Cornwall (we hired Arthur). We were impressed with the high specification of the van and it was fully equipped with everything we may have needed, including things that we hadn't even considered. James and Molly
