High-top VW campervans for hire within striking distance of the Yorkshire Dales

There’s no messing about with Lady Blue and Lady Grey – they are straightforward as you would expect from a Yorkshire-based pair. Of course, these two are not the local dignitaries but the two modern campervans on offer from Val’s Holiday Vans. And when we say there’s no messing – we mean they are VW T6 high tops. That means there’s no need to stoop inside while you pop the tops up; these two are ready to go as soon as you park up. A good strong cup of Yorkshire tea can be on the way in no time – and, if it’s sunny outside, just pull out the included awning. Of course, as these are compact campers, there are other transformations to be undertaken, with a fold-out table and a swivelling captain’s chair to make the kitchen into the dining room and a few more folds to transform the space for sleeping – but that’s all part of the fun, isn’t it? The kitchen cupboards are stocked with all the equipment you need for four people to cook and eat and there’s even a porta-potty carefully stowed away. Val’s Holiday Vans are based in Richmond: it’s the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and not far to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Moors or even Scotland. A fantastic place to set out on a road trip from – with no messing.

Excellent service

I would highly recommend using Vals holiday Vans. The process is easy to book, the service and communication is excellent and the van (Lady Grey) more than met our needs. Thankyou Val 😁

Family fun

Immaculate and perfectly set up camper van for a family trip with a 5 and 2 year old. We had a great adventure exploring the Lake District in Lady Blue. There was so much storage and all the essentials so we didn’t need to buy any additional equipment as camping novices. The handovers were straightforward and the owners were friendly and available by phone if needed. The kids loved it and we all fit quite comfortably and we plan to rent again as a van gives you so much ease and flexibility for family days out and trips. Pick up location in Richmond is ideal for trips to the lakes, Dales or Northumberland.

Luxury compact and convenient

I hired Lady Grey to give me somewhere warm and dry in case of a rainy weekend at Croft race circuit nearby. Not a lot of driving was done in the van so I parked up and she remained in place for 3 days. A perfect set up inside with all the little Nik naks you require. Good sized fridge and easy to use hob/oven and water system for sink. Val said we were the second guests to use Lady Grey and it showed with a clean and fresh interior. Would definitely recommend for a week away exploring the Dales or the Lakes and beyond. Val was easy to communicate with and on hand if you had any questions during the trip.
