This is our van, Sybil.

She is named after a much loved relative, whose life was full of adventure, fun and travel, right into her old age. She inspires us to live with the same attitude.

Sybil the van is well maintained, well loved and fully kitted out for family adventures and we're happy to share her with other like minded people.

Sybil is a 2.5 tonne, medium wheel base, converted 16 seater mini-bus. She's a home build, made specifically for a family of four, but if you have young ones, she can definitely accommodate five.

Sybil has 240v hook up if you want to head to campsites, or if you long for the wild, she has 2 juicy leisure batteries, a solar panel to charge them and carries enough water for a few days. And she's got a loo!

Sybil is ideal for families but will also suit couples or solo travellers. For festival requests please contact us directly.

Please note, Sybil is a 16 year old van who has had many adventures. She is charming but is not one of those perfect hotel rooms on wheels. She has a few imperfections and small signs of wear and tear, like all of us who have lived a good life. But she's well cared for and we hope her age and condition is reflected in the price.

We are based in Bruton, Somerset, 40 mins south of Bath, 2 hrs SW of London - perfect for any adventure in the South West, but also within reach of the M4/M5 if you want to go West or North.

Great van, easy to drive, not too big to negotiate the country lanes of cornwall! Easily fed, slept and watered our small family for 4 days! August 2022
Lovely van from a lovely family Just returned from a dreamy weekend in Sybil. This van is so beautifully and thoughtfully decked out, she’s a complete joy to stay in. All mod cons- two ring gas stove, all kitchen items you could need, sink, fridge, tv, toilet! Cool and breezy with doors open throughout the day (even during a heat wave), yet cosy at night. Beds are really comfortable and easy to pack away. All windows have curtains and blinds so you don’t get woken too early. Soo much storage. There’s a double with a child bed alongside and another child bunk up above. Sybil makes me want to scoop up my kids and escape to wild places frequently. She’s also easy to drive for such an accommodatingly large vehicle. July 2022
