Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Fflur'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.
Fflur (Welsh for 'flower') is a medium length, mid height van - so while comfortable & spacious, she is also easy to manoeuvre and just compact enough to fit in a regular parking space - making trips to the shop no hassle. She is tall enough to stand up in easily with a practical layout and lots of built in storage - so whether you like to travel in luxury with your whole wardrobe, or are an adventurer who needs to bring a bike, a kayak or climbing gear, you're covered.
There is a gas hob, oven and grill, perfect for cooking up belly-warming grub in the evening light. Eat your meal under the large, sturdy awning - giving you shade in the sun or shelter in wet weather as you listen to the birds or the pitter patter of the rain. Afterwards, the small but efficient woodburning stove is guaranteed to keep you cosy on chillier evenings.
Fflur is full of enchanting details - from her reclaimed wood panelled walls to her collection of charming retro tins, enamelware crockery and cheerfully painted kitchen. Her location is pretty enchanting too - pick her up from Llangrannog on the coast of west Wales, and prepare to be awestruck by the unspoilt natural beauty of the area: she will give you a great base to explore from and a lovely home to come back to every day.

Conversion StoryWe bought Fflur in 2015 as an empty panel van. After many years of converting and living in buses we had progressed to building our own permanent home on the beautiful Ceredigion coast but we missed the nomadic call and decided to build ourselves a mini living vehicle for holidays and weekends away, so Fflur came into our lives.
We converted her over a winter working on a layout that optimizes her practicality, we wanted to be able to carry bikes and kayaks, but still have a spacious, comfortable, cosy vehicle!
We added windows, reclaimed pine timber cladding, a decent sized kitchen, a comfortable sleeping area, lots of storage and a teeny but efficient wood burner as well as a large roof rack, tow bar and awning.
We have enjoyed many trips away here in the UK and further afield.
Last year we acquired another van to convert but we can't bring ourselves to part with Fflur so we have decided to share the fun and hire her out instead.
