Bumblebee is a fabulously cheery, 5-berth camper van based in the South West of the UK. She might be bright and bold on the outside, but inside she is calm, rustic and skilfully handcrafted from lots of upcycled and reclaimed materials. Bumblebee has excellent storage facilities and modern amenities like a 240v hook up and an extremely efficient diesel heater that quickly heats up the van, even in the depths of winter. Suitable for a family holiday, or for a romantic couple’s retreat, this campervan hire Cornwall includes a top bunk for two children to stowaway, with removable netting for safety. For bigger kids, extra slats for the top bunk can be added. Bumblebee is ideal for those seeking adventure, and for those who enjoy their creature comforts. The best of both worlds!

Conversion Story: I bought Bumblebee in February 2017 as an ex-highway maintenance van. Bumblebee is a labour of love made to make family holidays affordable and as a source of income. I worked tirelessly on converting Bumblebee until August 2017, I used as much reclaimed wood and other materials as I could trying to create that hygge feel for adventuring in comfort and style! Bumblebee is double insulated with reflective bubble wrap insulation and recycled plastic insulation. My three year old son helped me with the name and the black stripes idea as he loves Bumblebee the Transformer!
