Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Freya's owners. We make every effort to ensure that all the vehicles listed with us are of a high standard but cannot guarantee the condition of the vehicle. If you experience any problems please notify us as soon as possible.

Live your dream of running away with the circus! Freya has been owned by two generations of travelling theatre and circus performers and it shows. She transports you far beyond the everyday from the moment you step inside - bedecked from top to toe in vintage fabrics, hand-patterned metalwork and mellow, hazy colours.

Designed for life on the road, you’ll find everything for a comfortable romantic break or longer-term exploring. On nippy nights, you can snuggle into that cosy bed or curl up with a book by the woodburning stove/oven, and on sunny mornings, throw open the stable door for a fresh air breakfast.

Owner Natalia still uses Freya for circus work so she keeps her well maintained, meaning you can be confident that she’s reliable as well as pretty.

    Travelling with Children

    The Van has a double bed, a full size single bed, and smaller bench bed made out of the dining area that would be suitable for a child say 5-10 years old. (no edge though). The floor space is pretty big so you would probably fit a travel cot on the floor.
    Let me know if you need child car seat/booster seat and I could try and source for you if it is tricky to bring with you.

    We have a ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ policy with pets. In other words we’re happy for you to take your dog as long as you bring it back in a condition that we never would have known!
