Amazing Motorhome Everything you need.. very clean and the hosts are such lovely people.. even gave us a doggy blanket and treats! had a fab time .. Will definitely use again! August 2021
The Motorhome was super clean and fully loaded and ready to go, had everything we needed and more. The owners were so nice and gave us a tour and showed us how to work everything, this was our first time driving a Motorhome and Keeley & Glenn made us feel at ease, as soon as Keeley knew we were taking Ivy our sausage dog with us she prepped a little blanket with treats for her holiday. How cute is that?? I would definitely recommend to book you will enjoy every moment. Thank you for sharing your Motorhome X Karen & Brian Clarke June 2021
Fantastic experience as this was out first time in a motor home. Our welcome from Glen and Keeley was pretty special as there was no rush in explaining the finer details of all the workings. Great touch from Keeley as she left a dog blanket and treats for our pup which was very much appreciated. The motor home was equipped with everything that’s required and looked brand new on arrival. Look forward to hiring it again. Thanks very much to you both. April 2021
