5 Belted seats 4 Adult beds 1 Child beds
Florence is a professionally converted campervan, who evokes a country kitchen on wheels. This former ambulance is a high-quality rolling home, who is spacious for a whole family of 5 to live and sleep really comfortably, but compact enough to drive really easily, too. With a full size 3-ring hob, loads of storage space, a deep counter and a butler sink, cooking will be pure pleasure; a far cry from squatting over a camping stove! Then you can eat in comfort around the large and beautiful larch dining table, which is also perfect for reading, games and route planning your road trip! From the handmade kitchen tiles, to the Welsh fabric patchwork chairs, there’s a gorgeous attention to design perfection everywhere you look. And, make sure you look in the cupboards, where there’s always something local for you to enjoy, from Café Mor condiments, Teifi Dragon coffee or eggs from the owner’s hens!

Conversion Story: Florence came to us having finished her working life as an ambulance in Yorkshire. We love to see things taking on a new lease of life, and we felt that with her beautiful shape, Florence was perfect for a roomy campervan conversion. We wanted to use materials that reflect our spot in Pembrokeshire - oak trees, Welsh wool, the hedgerows. We knew we had found great people to work with when we came across Rustic Simplicity. It became clear really quickly that they understood what we were hoping to achieve and that they were very much up for the challenge of a less traditional vehicle. James crafted her interior using reclaimed oak for the cupboards and a beautiful piece of larch for the main table. Anita incorporated our Welsh fabric into the wonderful upholstery, bringing a real sense of comfort and homeliness. Florence has plenty of space for the family, and yet is cosy should the 2 of us ever have the opportunity to sneak her away for a weekend. In 6 short but packed months, Florence was transformed from a working ambulance to a beautiful camper van to enjoy and share :) She may not be the youngest vehicle, but has everything you need to explore the countryside at a leisurely pace in comfort. No rush required. We hope you enjoy her as much as we do.
