Happy Campers - Jill & Graham, Freddie & Lucas

Dear Gerald & Vicki

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our adventure with our grandchildren in shiny red wonderfully kitted out Dennis. Everyone admired us (well, the van) wherever we travelled there were appreciative toots, flashes of lights, and people admiring, commenting and smiling, on route to our stay in beautiful Exmoor and then a few days in Croyde Bay to catch the surf! We can confirm it is possible to get two adults and full of beans 8 & 7 year old boys in a bright red VW Camper Day Van, with scooters, skateboard, surf gear, ball, awning, de luxe bedding, together with posh little Lotus BBQ, picnic and kitchen set, with food and drink, lounger seats (that we never got to sit in…), pop up beach tent and mats, layers of gear for rain, cold, wet and sunny, art and storytelling gear, plus ourselves, allowing us to experience all the elements of the Great British Outdoors Life. It was a steep learning curve, and folk were friendly to come and help us erect the awning (claimed to be six minute pop up), talk VW’s and share tips on places to go visit with the kids. It was a huge steep and fun filled learning curve of managing the cosy van, camping life, the children, ourselves, the ever changing weather and the journey. A special time rich with memories, we all loved it!

Many thanks

Jill & Graham, Freddie & Lucas Carter
