You’ll find beautiful handcarved wood throughout, a rustic kitchen, funny little book cabinet, candles and fairylights. sumptuous soft furnishings and a handmade woodburner. Everything has been crafted with mostly reclaimed materials - just look at that washing machine porthole window!
And with a massive bed that converts into loads of sociable seating around a generously sized table, plus a handmade cot for your littlest traveller, Bella is as comfortable as any rabbit-hole or hobbit-home you’ll ever go into. We know, because she’s our very own van and we often go away in her ourselves with our three children.
Bella combines the space of a motorhome with the fun of a Quirky Camper, and we’d love you to experience her for yourself!
Thanks for a comfortable van with everything we needed

We have a 'cab bunk' suitable for up to 10 years old and hanging cot for babies.
The two forward facing passenger seats in the front are suitable for all car seats from 0 to booster. The rear facing back seats can only be used by adults or children in 'forward facing' car seats.
