Located in Holmfirth, our 4 berth VW T5.1 'Dora' is the perfect campervan for your next adventure.

Converted to a very high standard, the van includes everything you need for your trip as well as luxuries such as a solar panel and larger leisure battery capacity to allow you to go off grid. A TV (to entertain the children en-route!), a Webasto diesel heater and a pull-out side awning all help make 'Dora the Explora' an excellent home from home....

We had a fantastic week on our trip to The North Yorkshire Moors, Northumberland and Kielder Water. The camper van was great. It was really comfortable and very well equipped. It was our first camper van experience and there were two of us plus a dog sharing. Gareth was fantastic. Starting with a thorough explanation of all the features of the camper and quickly answering a couple of questions that we had whilst out and about. We couldn't have been happier with the service and we would definitely recommend. July 2023
We have had a fabulous weekend with Dora! We were heading to a celebration for an upcoming big birthday and so decided to push the boat out and hire Dora for our family of 3 for the weekend. We weren’t disappointed. Gareth was fantastic with comms prior to collection and did a superb demo of the camper on collection. We were then presented with a manual of how to deal with everything you could think of in the van, just in case. Dora is a high spec camper and we couldn’t have wished for a better experience for our first foray into the campervan experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Gareth and Sarah for helping make a memorable weekend. June 2023
We rented Dora for two nights and took her to North Yorkshire. Gareth took his time to show us all about Dora before we drove away but also gave us an information booklet which had everything in you need to know. The van is well stocked with cooking & washing up accessories. We had a comfortable stay & couldnt fault anything. She is a great looking van and has obviously been very well cared for. We will definitely be hiring her again in the near future. May 2023
I had such an amazing break in Dora, it exceeded my expectations. I'm a campervan newbie considering buying a van myself for solo trips, so I wanted to try it out. Everything was easy to follow in the user guide, the handover from Gareth was great and I didn't feel at all intimidated by the van once I got going. A couple of things I was confused about were solved by a helpful phone conversation, and everything had been thought of in kitting out the van. Thank you, I will definitely be back for a further hire, if I don't buy a van for myself. October 2022
