VW CAMPER HIRE
Daisy is a gorgeous pale yellow classic 1970s VW Westfalia Continental campervan who has been lovingly restored with a refurbished interior and handmade curtains. You’ll love her classic hippy vibe and the unmistakable sound and feel of her VW air cooled engine.
Daisy has all the essentials you need for your trip away including a full width fold down ‘rock n roll’ bed, a modern independent heater unit, an electric fridge, a twin gas hob and a sink with electrically pumped water from the onboard tank. She even has a few modern essentials such as phone & USB charging sockets and a Radio/CD with Bluetooth & iPod/MP3 input. Daisy also has a solar panel, as well as electric hook up, giving you the freedom to roam “off grid”.
Daisy is available for holiday hire on a weekend, midweek and weekly basis. She is also available for wedding hire (October to March). She seats 6 when being used for transport and sleeps up to 2 adults and 2 children when camping.

Daisy was beautiful – even more gorgeous than we had expected. We had a great time and loved how all the other VW camper drivers waved at us when we passed them on the road.
We felt very proud driving her around.Roseanna
