A modern VW T6 campervan for exploring the best of the Lake District

The problem with camping in the Lake District is knowing which part to visit. Do you go for the buzz of Windermere and it’s on-the-water opportunities or the the gingerbread-house charm of Grasmere? Do you enjoy the peace of Ullswater or take up the mountain-scaling opportunities around Scafell Pike? Hire yourself a Lakes Escape Camper and you can do them all without having to pitch a tent once. Added as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recent years, the Lake District is home to Scafell Pike, the largest mountain in England and the stunning landscape includes no less than 16 lakes.

Lakes Escape’s van is a converted VW T6 suitable for a couple or family of four. Named Dolly by owners Zoe and Andrew, this stylish deep blue 2018 campervan, offers modern comfort and comes with a good dose of customer service too. Zoe and Andrew offer a pick-up service from the train station, offer tips on places to go wild swimming and have a long list of satisfied customers.

Social Distancing Measures

  1. To allow for more time to deep clean we are extending the time between drop offs and collections. 
  2. A deep clean will carried out and the van will be disinfected.  All cleaning products will contain viricidal agents needed to kill flu viruses. 
  3. We will stock the campervan with disinfectant and cleaning products for the duration of the hire.
  4. Where possible we will try and leave 24 hours in between rentals, however during the busy periods we will ensure the van will be ventilated before, during and after cleaning.

We love Roxy!

From start to finish, dealing with Zoe at Lakes Escape Campers was a pleasure. We hired Roxy for 3 nights and went wild camping in Scotland - we can highly recommend it... and so can Alfie our little fluffy, 4-legged boy! We will definitely be hiring Roxy again.

CamperVan Converts!

Thats it! We are converted! There is no going back to camping after living in Dolly the camper for a few days! We are fully in love with her! We hired her from the lovely folks at Lake Escape Campers, (who I might add are the nicest people you will meet!) Dolly was a dream to drive, she took us all over Penrith & Windermere, was there for us when we needed a cup of tea after our big adventures and made us feel comfortable and homely. Our first camper road trip was so easy thanks to Zoe, Andrew and Dolly. The van had everything we needed (including some birthday fizz), and Zoe helped me plan out the best places to visit. We had ourselves a magical birthday . Massive big thanks to Lakes Escape Campers & Cool Camping for making it so. And without a doubt we recommend...
