Hired one of Matt's campers for four days last week. Matt is a great guy to hire from and the van was just right for us as this was a 'try before you buy' exercise. Everything explained very clearly.
Being based in Okehampton is not only perfect for access from the Midlands but also to Cornwall and both North and South Devon. Very reasonable cost too.
Bertha was home to two adults and a three year old for two weeks travelling through Spain and France and she was a fantastic host. Perfectly equipped, she had everything we needed without useless frills, she was a dream and very reliable to drive, and had JUST about room for all of the useless luggage we brought along.
We hired this van as we are hoping to convert our own van and wanted to make sure van life was for us. It took us a few days to get the hang of it but we're now big fans.
We also hired the awning which was provided useful space when we were staying somewhere more than a night and whilst it was quite bulky would fit neatly onto the driver's seat overnight if we weren't using it.
a lovely van which made a lovely comfortable weekend fantastic to drive and devon campers we so smooth to use and very friendly would recommend them to anyone a pleasure to have met and used their van Bertram will definately be using each year x
We hired the van for family of 4...2 kids are 5 and 7. Drove up to north devon. Had a lovely stay. Van was great, well equipped,clean and everything in good working order. Good communication from Matt. Will probably rent it again! Highly recommended. Maybe consider the addition of a bike rack as tarka trail is close by.
We took Boris to Legoland and then Dorset on a half-term break with the kids - our first time away in a campervan. It was brilliant and we loved it from start to finish. Some good late October weather certainly helped, but even on chilly nights the van was warm and comfortable.
It's well equipped, drives really nicely (doesn't feel any bigger than our normal car, really) and we'll hire Boris again for more adventures in the future, I'm sure.
Hired Bertha for a road trip round Cornwall for four nights/ five days, Matt gave good instruction so we knew exactly what to do and looked after our vehicle. We had great fun driving round the sites and having the accommodation with us, was easy to manage and had all the basics you could need for camping without having to pitch a tent, warm dry and amazing views at every turn; Bertha gave us no problems and did all that was required of her, would definitely recommend this. Thank you Bertha and Matt.
Booked a van for 3 nights as a taster to see if we liked campers. Van was immaculate and drove very nicely. Very good run through from the owner before I left and apart from there being no cover/screen for the front of the van which would have kept the morning light out, everything went smoothly.
