Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Guinevere'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.

Self-sufficient Guinevere is everything you love about van life! She’s got music, fun décor and loads of room to socialise, plus she has plenty of room to store warm clothes and for your muddy wellies to dry out. She's just built for fun and practicality, and perfect for any kind of adventure whether it be festivals, campsites or completely off-grid as she's equipped with solar to run lighting, music, the fridge and your chargers.
We love how she combines high-quality craftsmanship with a sense of humour - plus there are all the home comforts that grown-ups and kids need: a sink, fridge, gas hob, mini-woodburner, even a shower and optional toilet for 'no campsite required' exploring (or to save you from the horror of a midnight trip to the portaloos!). Guinevere is truly the Queen of Avalon.

    Conversion Story

    Guinevere started life as a school minibus. Her owners, Lois and Nigel, converted her for their own use, regularly attending festivals across the country. Since becoming a 'quirky camper' she's had a major re-fit removing any sign of previous mini-bus usage, now boasting solid oak flooring, full insulation behind a beautiful wooden painted tongue and groove internal cladding, copper curtain rails, funky Hand made ceramic tiles, oak table and worktop, a mini wood burning stove and plenty of quirky features. All this along with a built-in hot water shower, refrigerator, sink and two gas hobs make for a very comfortable experience. She's equipped with solar which will run the lighting, stereo, chargers and refrigerator so no need to worry about running the engine to charge the batteries.
