Cyril the Talbot is your luxury campervan. He has all the comforts of a motorhome but he drives like a car, fits into carparks and is economical . He has too many features to list but is more cosy that the average home and drives better than most cars! We have had many adventures in Cyril and look forward to helping you create yours. Cyril has a bathroom with a compact hot water shower, hand basin and toilet. The kitchen has a 2 burner hob, grill, fridge with icebox and basin with hot and cold water. The cabin has 2 large, comfortable sofas that convert into 2 single beds or a large double big enough for 3 tall people. You can even stand in Cyril. He comes with full cuttlery and cooking utensils and linen and towels if required. Applicances are operated by 12v, gas or mains hookup allowing a full off grid holiday. Gas central heating will keep you toasty warm while the many windows provide plenty of natural light and cool airflow in the summer months. Privacy and blackout blinds along with super comfortable beds will make sure you have a great night's sleep . Cyril has a 2.0 litre petrol engine and is a manual, purpose built campervan (not converted). He has air suspension and is a dream to drive. He has 3 belted seats. Everything is orginal and was factory installed. No strange little nuances/ workarounds needed with Cyril like other budget campers!!!! Just jump in and drive :)

Cyril is a lovely camper with a great character. We took him on a mini break and had so much fun. He might be getting on, but he manages those hills and handles well. The toilet and shower are good to have but in fairness very limited in space, (only to be expected) so we opted to use the site showers etc. Cyril has all you need onboard, and Jacqui supplies the basics, salt, pepper, tea bags and coffee, tea clothes etc. everything seemed to work fine. Jacqui and Warren were super friendly, very helpful and flexible. Jacqui gave us some wonderful fresh eggs from her cute hens which run free on their property. Very happy with our hire experience and we both fell in love with Cyril. June 2021
I had a fun weekend with “Cyril”. Inside I had everything I needed. Jacqui provides the basics like tea, coffee, salt and pepper, toilet roll and cleaning items. You just need a sleeping bag and food. The fridge works off the car battery when driving and gas when parked. Everything worked well. Maybe not suitable for an inexperienced driver as the clutch has character! June 2021
