The Owner Says

Hi there! We are Ali, Katie, Euan and Jude - Parklife Campers! Family explorers, adventurers, mischief makers, smile and memory creators and chaos co-ordinators! We have always been passionate about outdoor sports, travel and adventure, and met having completed a number of winter seasons in Europe. We love to play outside - you're never too old!

Our first journey in a campervan came in April 2010 when a planned trip to Thailand was cancelled due to the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland. We’ll never forget feeling really organised and excited, packed ready to go, with a new summer wardrobe and travel guides at the ready, and within 24 hours we were unpacking and getting our heads around all flights being grounded. A familiar feeling for many in 2020 following lockdown.

We quickly changed direction and embarked on a free-styling trip through France in a T2 Bus called Bali, with no schedule and no fixed itinerary, simply the open road, a few Cool Camping books and an Ipad. It was April, and we weren't too sure what clothes to take, so by then the methodical packing went out the window, with all the other best laid plans and we took the bare minimum. Chucking in the bikinis was wishful thinking, but how wrong we were! We followed a glorious heat wave all around the Dordogne. They say life is what happens when you are busy making plans!

Over the years, it has been an aspiration to own a number of vans and share the experience with likeminded people looking for alternative ways to holiday. That dream is now a reality with Parklife Campers. We don’t have a map, just pure self-navigation and determination. We have two brand new shiny T6’1 California Oceans ready for your Parklife adventure, these are very highly spec’d and fully kitted out ready for your own memory making! 

Break the norm, go your own way and share our journey. The road ahead is open, and often, it’s not the journey or destination it is the company….

The weather tried but failed to ruin our trip.

Being complete amateurs when it comes to camping and never having been in a camper van we were really excited for our long weekend. The booking was simple and any questions I had were answered as the owners were only a phone call or text message away. The van is incredible and being virtually brand new was just like driving a car. Frustratingly we were away during the fuel shortages but the owners were very understanding and were ok with me considering deferring our trip. We just went for it and as it happened Wales had loads of diesel! The weather was terrible but that’s where the van comes into it’s own. Hand over at the start and finish was simple and quick and I can not understate how much I recommend Parklife campers to everyone.

Easy driving in modern clean camper

The van was good to drive and easy to operate all the facilities on board. Helpful intro and handover from Ali and Katie. Stayed at Hawkwood Farm near Southwold which was first class.

Absolutley awesome

I had a great experience both with the wonderful owners of Parklife Campers but also with my stay in Buddy. I was given every help in the booking and arranging pick up. I was guided round the van at hand over and that was excceptionally helpful. Buddy was my home for the weekend and just like every home you want to be comfortable. I had space for my wheelchair and the electric triycycle that I use on the front. there is loads of wardrobe space and spaces for all the other bits you may have with you. Buddy comes with everything you will need for a comfortable, fun holiday. I know that I could quite happily have spent a month in Buddy with no worries about comfort or the ability to do all the things a sense of either adventure or the need of peace would bring. I cannot recommend Parklife Campers highly enough for not only the standard of the vans but for the high standard of customer service and the friendly atmosphere they exude when you are handing over or picking up.

Response from Parklife Campers

Such a smile on your face when you arrived back. So glad you had a fabulous time! The campervan was nearly as clean as it went out!
Look forward to hiring to you again.

Amazing experience in every way!

Katie and Ali have made our first campervan experience one to remember! Nothing was too much trouble and Katie kept us informed all through our booking and helped up with any tips or any questions we had. The handover was very informative and they both made sure we were comfortable with the mod cons the van had to offer. The van was well equipped with anything you may need, so all you needed to pack was clothes, bedding and toys for the kids, (of course I overpacked for them). The camping experience Katie and Ali have shows in the items available in the van, from pots and pans to utensils, condiments and refreshments to keep you going. All high quality and considerably packed. Nothing was a hassle and they made sure if we had any issues with anything, we could contact them regardless of time. We went away for a weekend trip staying in two locations. The van was easy to drive and made the journey pleasurable. We actually miss it now we are back in our own cars. The upgrades they have on the vans are awesome as well. The integrated window blinds, rear view camera parking, 360 degrees parking sensors, side awning, shower attachment to name a few. The van was cosy at night sleeping two adults and two children (9&6), good nights sleep had by all ready for adventures the following day. It is definitely a talking point with other campers too. A memorable weekend that we will never forget, all made possible thanks to Katie, Ali, Euan and Jude x
