The front passenger seat swivels round to face the rear of Barbara and makes a lovely lounge area, there is also a small table which can be placed between the seating of the rock and roll bed and the front seats.

There is a small kitchen fitted and this comprises of a sink and 2 burner hob along with a grill below. There is ample storage both under the rock and roll bed, which also moves forward for travelling and opens up a large storage area at the rear of Barbara along with some small cupboards.

Barbara is fitted with an onboard water tank so cold water is no issue, and if it gets chilly at night there is a blown air heating system.

Navigation is sorted with a top of the range integrated VW info system. There is also a reversing camera fitted. Barbara also has full breakdown cover. There is also a factory fitted VW cycle rack on the back which holds a maximum of 60kg in weight. 2 Adult bikes and 2 childrens bikes.

A whistling kettle for the hob is also provided . There is also a small fridge with small freezer compartment. All you need to add is your food and wine/beer.

There is ample storage for food within the small cupboards, along with storage under the seating area.

Outside living is taken care of with a full length Omnister pull out awning.

We can also supply you with a Olpro cocoon Breeze inflatable Drive a way awning with porch extension if required .This is included in the rental with Barbara. This awning is over 4 metres long with a separate sleeping area for 4/5 people. This more than doubles your living space if required.

Barbara does not have a toilet..... but if you would like to hire LuLu our Port a Potty she can be supplied, you will need to sort chemicals for her, or there is a £10 charge paid to ourselves for chemicals. All we ask is she is cleaned out properly before her return.

We do allow well behaved dogs, but ask that all the seats are covered with throws which are included if you wish for them to sit on the seats. Please ensure you inform us on booking of the breed and how many dogs.

If you have never camped before and think you would need anything extra please do not hesitate to ask us we have been camping for many years going from tents to trailer tents to caravans with our children, grandchildren and dogs and have finally reached Margo and Barbara. We have a large stash of camping gear if there was anything else you think you might need....

Parents & Grandparents - we hated being fleeced over the bank holidays and school half terms for holidays, hence we do not increase our prices for these periods other than the main summer period.

We fully understand that breakages and damage occur all we ask is that you are honest and report it to us upon return of the van (or before) so as to avoid any unnecessary drama.

Barbara is ideally located on the A14 corridor for easy access to the M1, M6 and A1 for your adventures further a field.

Due to our insurance company requests when hiring any of our Vans we will require a photo copy of your driving licence, and 2 forms of identification (these could be household bills, or passport in your name) we will also need to do a DVLA driving licence check when you arrive to collect your hire van.

What an experience, 10/10 all round. Communication from the very beginning was second to none. Barbara was full equipped, ready to go and absolutely spotless when we arrived. Everything felt so effortless and Sharon was an absolute dream throughout the whole process. Thank you for making our holiday perfect, we will be back. June 2021
Great high spec Van really made our Bank Holiday weekend. With our weather it was perfect. Also the diesel heater at night was a godsend. Van was lovely and clean the videos were clear and concise. Sharon had everything organised and communication was spot on. Would definitely recommend. May 2021
We had a great time exploring the south coast with Barbara. Looking forward to hiring it again! April 2021
Response from Sharon Hi Ruben, Glad you had a good time in Barbara, we look forward to you hiring again from us.
Barbara and her owners truly look after your every need! She was a delight to drive with great all round views. You feel on top of the world driving her! Very well equipped, spotlessly clean and their pride and joy. Warm and cosy too! The pre pick up videos from Vince were so useful as were the communications with Sharon. The hand over was calm, friendly, and thoughtful.....very reassuring. What came over strongly was the wish for you to really enjoy your adventure. That I did. I wouldn’t hesitate to have a girls trip out again! Thank you so much for making the whole process incredibly easy and for making my four legged friend, Flip Flop feel welcome too x April 2021
Response from Sharon Hi Carol, Thanks for your review, we are so pleased that Flip Flop and you had a great time in Barbara. We look forward to you both hiring her again, Vince will work on his presenting skills for the next instalments of his exciting videos.
