I booked Olive at the beginning of the year to take my girlfriend to a music festival as a surprise, as its been a dream of hers. Neither of us were disappointed. The owner was very friendly and helpful, but despite being given a full tour of the van I have to admit I was pretty scared the first time I sat in the cab knowing we had a good two hour journey ahead and I had a left hand drive vehicle. Didn't take long to get used to it and had a very good leisurely journey. Got a good spot in the field for a cracking three nights at lindisfarne music festival. My girlfriend was thrilled with the experience and I had one of the best times of my life, Oilve being absolutely integral to that long weekend. Just loved the cosiness of the van when all the curtains were shut and cooking on my knees was definitely a new experience as although the top was up I am quite tall and prone to banging my head (have the scars to prove it). Got back earlier than expected on Sunday, so took my daughter out. She loved it. Got to admit that come Monday when I had to return Olive I was more than a bit sad. Definitely hope to do the same thing again next year. The whole booking process, following communication, pick up and drop of were excellent and I wish to thank you on behalf of Jess and myself for a wonderful experience.
We have hired Olive 5 times now. Pick-up and drop off is easy. Olive is always clean and ready to go. Our daughter loves the sweet treats. It is a great way to spend precious family time together.
Thank u so much for everything on Saturday 22nd July! I loved having Florence to take us to the church/venue. She fitted into my wedding theme perfectly and all the guests thought she was great and such a different idea! The personal touches ..champagne flutes and bags of sweets were amazing! Couldn't of asked for anything better! Will definitely recommend to friends and family! Thanks again!
Hired Olive for prom to take 5 girls in all their finery to the venue. Olive was fantastic! Lots of room and the girls loved the treats inside for them. Graham was really helpful and the whole night was such a cool experience for everyone. Thank you!
I’m 57 now, a year on from my last review & I was just as thrilled as last year when my wife hired Olive (instead of Florence) as a surprise for my birthday.
Again we did a small tour of Northumberland & I loved every moment of the drive. Olive didn’t miss a beat & I couldn’t stop smiling.
Olive has a different interior arrangement to Florence &, in my opinion, more suited to camping. She has a classic 4 berth Westphalia lay out with rock ‘n’ roll bed & roof bunks, a hob, sink & small cool box. The refurbished cream upholstery compliments the patina of the 40 year old cabinets.
Olive attracted a lot of attention & compliments.
Graham was very helpful & professional when I collected Olive, advising on every aspect & eccentricity & how to use the facilities.
We highly recommend Sweet Campers to others.
I have always wanted a VW Camper of my own but I am coming to the conclusion that the best option for me, & my money, is to rent a camper when I need it, rather that have one locked up in a garage most of the time.
I’m hoping the missus will rent Florence or Olive for my birthdays in the future.
I am one of many blokes who have always wanted a VW Camper but never actually drove one, let alone bought one. I was thrilled to bits when my wife hired Florence as a surprise for my 56th birthday.
We did a small tour of Northumberland & I loved every moment of the drive. I couldn’t stop smiling.
This classic VW camper van is in excellent condition, drove well and had everything we needed & more. She attracted a lot of attention & compliments, I would have loved to have told everyone that this van was mine.
Graham was very helpful & professional when I collected Florence & my wife has said he was great to deal with. He was so discreet that I never knew that she had booked Florence until I arrived in Darlington (I had suspected that she had booked a hotel).
We would highly recommend Sweet Campers to others……..in fact we have recommended them to everyone who spoke to us on our trips through Northumberland.
We took Olive over to the Lakes for a short break over October half term and we weren't disappointed! Olive is a classic VW camper van, is in excellent condition and had everything we needed. She was great fun to drive and attracted a lot of attention during our stay. Graham was very helpful, friendly and professional to deal with and we would highly recommend Sweet Campers to others.
