Dorothy our VW T2 Bay Window Campervan was "born" in Brazil, shipped over to the UK and converted by Danbury in 2005.
She is only 6 years old and in immaculate condition. She has an "Aircooled" engine so has the looks and sound of the original 60's & 70's buses but is a little more reliable! With only 4 gears and no power steering she is the real deal!
She will sleep 2 adults comfortably on the "rock and Roll" bed which is a 6' Double. The roof pops up and can sleep up to 80kgs (2 small children or a small"ish" adult) For 2 couples we recommend hiring a Bell Tent (The Kombi Combo - which is £15.00 per day extra instead of £25.00 without the bus ) - which comes with extremely comfy airbeds and acts as a very spacious "spare room" especially useful if you find the perfect pitch only to return in your bus at the end of the day to find someone else has "discovered" it! - quote 'Classic Volks' to get the Bell Tent FREE!!
We also provide a 2 man pop up tent – it is a good storage room, as space in a bus is tight.
She is fully equipped and has a 2 ring gas hob and a grill and a cold water sink. Cath Kidston curtains and lots of kitchen essentials, melamine Emma Bridgewater Mugs, plates and bowls. Wine glasses (well plastics!) the all important bottle opener etc...
We have also put in copies of The Cool Camping Book, Tiny Campsites and the Campervan Cookbook, maps of Northumberland and The Scottish Borders, First Aid Kit, and lots of other non-essential essentials!
We would request that you drive no more than 700 miles in a 7 day rental.
VW campervans are not known, nor are they built for speed - but they are built for fun and are Guaranteed to put a smile on your face so, relax, take your time and enjoy the view!
These bits and pieces are all included in the price, we won't make any extra hire charges for them but please ask us in advance.
As little as possible! Space is at a premium in a camper van. We recommend that you put all of your clothes into a squashy bag, or a strong plastic stackable box which can double up as a stool/table.
You will need:- cool clothes for hot days, warm clothes for cool days, waterproofs for wet days, Sun cream, Midge repellent and a good sense of humour!
Bedding - we supply 2 sleeping bags and liners and 2 towels and 2 pillows for free. If you would like more there is a small fee of £8.00 per person. If you need a little more comfort we will supply a mattress topper, bottom sheet, Duvet and 2 pillows for £20.00 per person per week.
We hope VERY! knives, forks, spoons, teaspoons, chopping board and bread knife, sharp knife, the all important bottle opener, a flask, kettle, pots and pans, salt and pepper, a small amount of tea, coffee and sugar to get you started, and 2 - 5 of each of the following depending how many are in your party: plates, bowls, mugs, glasses (well plastics!), A fire extinguisher, a torch, The Campervan Cookbook, Tiny Campsite book, Cool Camping Book, a pack of cards and even a mini iron!! – but secretly I hope it will never be used – YOU ARE ON A BREAK! A Map of Northumberland, Map of Southern Scotland and a road Atlas first aid kit and lots more................
She is very well maintained and we truly hope this doesn't happen. However sometimes it will happen and if it does she has full AA membership, roadside and relay. We hope that she will be mended as soon as is possible. If it is not possible we will try and find another similar vehicle for you. If we can't we will refund the price of the remaining days of your holiday.
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU TAKE OUT ADEQUATE HOLIDAY INSURANCE
Do I need to change my car insurance?
No we arrange fully comprehensive insurance for 2 - 4 drivers so long as they meet our insurance criteria. You must bring proof of identity (see below) The hirer must be over 25 and under 70 years old. Have no more than two 3 point convictions within the past 3 years on their licence and have held their Full UK licence for at least 2 years.
right, brace yourself. Our insurers require all of the following................
so to sum up what you should bring:
if you think that you are going to have difficulty producing any of these items call us as soon as possible; we have a huge list of different types of acceptable id.
Sorry, we simply won't be able to let you take the van. from time to time people forget to bring a seemingly insignificant piece of id, such as a recent utility bill, and we end up on the phone trying to plead a case with our insurers. it has never yet worked, they are absolutely resolute on this point; you must have all of the required forms of id listed above.
Any additional driver will need to provide all of the id listed above which we need to see sight of.
When you collect your van it will have a full tank of fuel. We would like it to be returned with a full tank otherwise we will charge £50.00 which will be taken off your deposit. The nearest petrol station to here is in Coldstream - 4 miles or Wooler 9 miles
Take it easy, you are looking at a top speed of 60mph. It is perfect to cruise along at 55mph! They really aren't built for speed! It is all about relaxing and taking in the view. Do pull over from time to time if a queue is building up behind you as we want people to love us!
We think that we've included everything that you will need but upon request we can provide a hamper of local produce. Charges for this service vary depending upon contents. Give me a budget and I will stick to it! Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda deliver here so you can pre arrange a delivery or send me your list and we can do it for a small fee of £5.00
If you are arriving by train, we can pick you up from Berwick upon Tweed Station for £15.00.
