Rosie is the definition of a rustic, hand crafted and wonderfully unique, quirky camper. Located in the East Midlands, this stunning VW campervan hire Nottingham is like being in a log cabin on wheels. She is absolutely the perfect romantic getaway vehicle, or a base for the whole family on an awesome adventure holiday together. There’s lots of storage under the sofa and bench seats as well as a wardrobe and cupboards in the kitchen, so you won’t be lost for space for all your gear. One of the best things about this VW camper is the log burner; who wouldn’t want to snuggle down in a Winter wilderness on a solar powered off-grid camper van holiday to the warmth and crackle of the wood stove?! What would make it even more perfect, is sipping on a hot chocolate, fresh off the hob, or maybe making a start on cooking the breakfast hamper which you can add as an optional extra. Whether you’re having a week of chilling and taking in the simple things in life, or are prepping for a jam-packed activity road trip, you’ll definitely fall in love with the beautiful details in Rosie’s gorgeous conversion.
About the Campervan

Conversion Story: Rosie is a stunning van made to look like a woodland cabin. She is full of lovingly crafted natural materials and it is a beautiful conversion. The combination of the natural wood, detailed craftsmanship and great sense of space make it a fantastic van for families and couples to enjoy. Rosie was orginially a panel van, and undertook her conversion throughout 2017-18, working with a wonderful carpenter - Jesus Sierra. The van has lots of natural wood, the walls are lined in western redwood cedar and the conversion used some branches of London Plane that fell down in St George's Park in a gale for the supports of the bunk beds. Cedar is both lightweight and beautiful when oiled and so is perfect for vans. The converters wanted a van that would work for holidays with children, but that would also be a lovely, romantic and luxurious place to stay in. We had the opportunity to hire Rosie in Autumn 2019, we instantly fell in love with her and started dreaming of how we might be able to have a van like this somehow! We were then thrilled that we got the opportunity to purchase her having had such a wonderful trip with our family, and are now delighted to be hitting the road ourselves as well as renting her out. Rosie has charm in abundance; staying and travelling in this fairy-tale home on wheels is a truly amazing experience.
