Her owners wanted a van that was both an easy-breezy companion on family holidays alongside being fun, beautiful, and luxurious. Being only 4 years old, Deirdre is reliable & great to drive. She was converted with ease-of-use in mind - with lots of storage, a fixed bunk bed and a straightforward table-to-bed.
With the practicalities taken care of by the solar panel, gas hob, fridge, and running water, enjoy the pleasure of cooking a leisurely meal in the fading light as the children play out. With full bellies, rest in the old fashioned charm and comfort of her duck down duvet and high quality cotton sheets, as the logs crackle in her beautiful woodstove.
For campervan hire in Somerset, keep it straightforward - and pick up Deirdre from her lovely owners in Frome.
