Description

Tilly (short for Matilda) is our classic VW T2 Westfalia Campmobile Twin Slider Campervan - top of the range in 1972 - an Australian Taxi in another life, she retains her rare third front seat! She is a stunning two-tone Sea Green and Pastel White 1972 bay window Campervan that is fantastic fun to drive!

We restored Tilly with our two year old daughter in mind, so she is not the 'standard' specification VW Campervan available elsewhere.

We have also upgrade her from her original 1970s specification so that she now has modern seat belts to all seats (making her suitable for most makes of child seats), she is fully insulated with non-itch eco insulation to keep you snug, has an automatic engine bay fire suppression system fitted (as used in racing cars) as well as interior smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire blanket, fire extinguisher and full first aid kit. She is also kitted out with a twin screen DVD player, i-pod/smartphone friendly CD player and tuner and, of course, Tilly also comes fully equipped with all the camping equipment you might need!

Having had a full re-spray and been fully reupholstered in beautiful pale green and white, Tilly is laid back and loves to chill out, while others glance admiringly at her understated beauty!

Her original 1600cc engine has been thoroughly reconditioned in readiness for her touring journeys and she is right hand drive, so the steering wheel is on the correct side (unlike some other hire vans!) and is available to hire all year round.

The rear seat converts to a three quarter width full sized double bed suitable for two adults and there is an enclosed double bed in the roof space for two children or one adult, as well as an optional child bed (from age 3 to approx age 7) in the cab; so her spacious interior can sleep two adults and up to three children (although there is the option of a two man tent for more sleeping space, or Henrietta, our four berth life sized Campervan tent!).

Our beautifully restored original VW Campervan has been given a makeover other Campers can only dream about. Her Union Jack poptop was custom made by the last sail makers on the banks of the River Tyne and her curtain material was commissioned from Dogs N Dubs chief designer Marc Doyle, who even matched the colours to her paintwork!

You can hire Tilly, our beautiful vintage VW Campervan, for Holidays, Honeymoons, Naughty Weekends and General Times of Loveliness across Yorkshire, County Durham, Northumberland, Cumbria, The Lake District and the Scottish Borders.

A copy of our full Terms & Conditions of Booking & Hire will be emailed to you when we receive your request to book and are also available to view on our website. We have included some key points below for your information.

The van hire booking and insurance form must be completed online.

It is a condition of the insurers that all payments are electronic, traceable and from an account held in the hirers name. We cannot accept cash payments as it invalidates the insurance.

The cancellation policy varies according to the rate that is booked. Please refer to the individual full rate descriptions given at booking.

The £500 security deposit is refundable on safe return of the van, in the condition in which it left our workshop. The van and all its equipment must be returned in good condition, with no damage to it, its contents or any third party property. The van must be returned with a full tank of petrol.

Your security deposit will normally be refunded within 5 working days of the end of the rental period. Should there be any damage or requirement for any repair, replacement or special cleaning, the costs will deducted from the security deposit before the balance is returned to you.

The vans all have comprehensive insurance for the first and any other named drivers.

You are advised to take out your own personal effects and travel insurance to cover items not part of the motor insurance; such as ill health, last minute cancellations, your luggage, campsite pitch fees, etc.

Drivers must be over 25 years of age and under 70, in good health and hold a full driving licence. “Good Health” means that you have no mental or physical disabilities which would interfere with your ability to drive. In addition you must not be taking drugs likely to affect your driving or drugs prescribed by a registered medical practitioner for treatment of drug addiction.

You will need to have held a UK driving licence for at least two years or a European Union Licence for at least three years. We will require the driving licence numbers and other identification information for all those who intend to drive. A maximum of 3 drivers per rental is allowed by our insurers.

Handover cannot take place unless all documents requested are brought for each Driver and all drivers are present.

When you arrive to collect your van, please ensure you allow at least an hour for us to show you around the van, how to drive the van, and how to operate the cooker, sink, cool box, roof, camping gaz, water storage and other accessories and to brief you on our health and safety guidelines. We will also need to complete the paperwork in that time. You will also need time to load your luggage into the van.

No refund is given for early return of the vehicle.

These vans were built in the 1970s when vehicles were very different! It is not recommended that you drive at the top speed; the van and you will be much more comfortable at between 40 mph and 50 mph where safe, conditions and the law allows. You will find the steering, gears and brakes very different to modern cars. If planning a longer drive, stop for regular breaks to rest both the van and the driver(s). We recommend you plan your route to avoid any steep hills or inclines, as they are not suitable for classic VW Campervans. We recommend you travel no more than 100 miles per day – you are on holiday in a vintage Campervan!

You must carry only as many passengers as there are seat belts in the van. You are legally responsible for obtaining and using an appropriate child or baby seat.

The hire includes 100 miles of travel per day, excluding the day of return. For example, a Friday to Monday weekend gives you 300 miles inclusive. Extra miles are charged at £1 per mile.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate pets in our Campervans.

Enjoy life in the slow lane! Forget the hustle and bustle of the 9 to 5 (or 6 to 8 that you really do!); switch off the 24/7 and escape to the real you and enjoy some quality time with your loved ones. Book a holiday you and yours will remember. Relax, Enjoy, Live, Love, Campervan!
