Barney is a real head turner, as you can see. He is a 2013 140 Bhp, diesal manual that has been perfectly converted and taken us on many great adventures. The purple trim and pop top coupled with the alloys always get lots of attention, whilst the conversion means that four people can sleep comfortably with two in the Rock and Roll bed and another two 'Up Stairs'.

During the day the double passenger seat can be turned allowing up to 5 to sit around the removable dining table. The kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, plates and utensils and there are enough wine glasses to ensure the evenings are always relaxing.
In 'the kitchen' there is a sink with a freshwater tank, a double gas hob and fridge freezer with plenty of storage for the supplied pots and pans.
As standard, there will always be everything you need to just get in and go (cooking and eating utensils, camping chairs and table, electric hook up etc) but if you require other items we are happy to discuss providing camping equipment like tents (the 5m Bell tent is my favourite), gazebo, BBQ etc.

The Van is based near Worcester in the West Midlands which is a perfect spot for easy access North, South, East or West and we can offer secure parking for your own vehicle during your adventures with Barney.

We had the most amazing time in Barney and Mark and his dad were very accommodating and flexible. I travelled with my partner and my Border Collie puppy and we all loved it. The handover was so easy and the van was extremely comfortable and good to drive, would highly recommend! ☺️ August 2021
Amazing camper, had everything we needed and more. Really smooth process from start to finish, communication from owner was excellent - met both Mark the owner on arrival and his dad Ed when dropping van back. Both were so helpful and nothing was to much, really nice guys. The gazebo was perfect and doubled the floor space and was so easy to put up along with the tables. Went with my pregnant partner 8 year old son and small dog and can’t wait to book again! August 2021
It was our first time going away in a campervan so we were a little apprehensive, but Ed (Mark’s Dad) explained everything to us and there’s even a handbook in case we forgot anything. There wasn’t anything they hadn’t thought of, everything we needed (aside from bedding ofc) was in the van, alongside some optional extras we could take with us. I even bought some hand soap and kitchen roll before realising there was already some in the van - all the basics you need but are so often left out when self catering! The bed was super comfy, although we did bring our own mattress topper which helped and we slept wonderfully well. The van was spotless inside and out which made us feel right at home. Thank you Barney and your lovely owners! August 2021
We had a great time with Barney and can highly recommend both the van and Mark! We actually picked up the van from Mark's dad who gave the handover. He ran through everything we needed and got us on the road as soon as he could. The van itself had everything we needed. We had loads of camping kit with us but the van is kitted out with utensils and everything you might need. Barney is also in really good condition and we had plenty of people compliment us on it (the only problem being it wasnt ours!). If you're thinking of trying a van out then you cant go wrong with Barney and the location is excellent for escaping into Herefordshire, Wales and beyond. July 2021
Response from Mark Thanks for the review Ed. Very glad you enjoyed Barney, and thanks for looking after him so well. Mark & Ed
A great weekend with Barney, everything was thought of and really only needed to take bedding (and a couple of bottles of wine!) Pick up and drop off was super easy with flexibility around timings, great communication from start to end, we can't wait to book again :) July 2021
A great weekend away in Barney. Clean and tidy with lots of camping equipment. Collecting and drop off was easy and friendly. Would love to book barney again. Would recommend. June 2021
Pleasure to deal with from start to finish, when we collected from ED (marks father) he made everything very clear to us a wished us a great time away. We had a fantastic Time away and mark had thought of literally everything, there was nothing the van didn’t have. When returning the van ED had a lovely conversation with us and we even exchanged gifts. Salt of the earth people If you are looking for a quick getaway with a great van with great responses and great hosts....look no further Will be booking again before my business reopens on the 17th may May 2021
We had a wonderful time with Barney the campervan. The owner, Mark, was great with communication before and during our trip. The van ran smoothly and contained everything we needed for our trip. The bed was also surprising comfy and the van was well insulated so we didn’t get cold at night (even though it got down to 2 degrees!). The pick up and drop off process was straight forward, Mark’s Dad was flexible with timing and talked us through everything we needed to know. We brought our own phone holder for GPS so didn’t try to use the Bluetooth functions but it was available. April 2021
