Childhood Dream

We hired Hugo (we love and miss you Hugo!) for three nights and immediately we all fell in love! Hugo is an absolutely gorgeous slice of history and the experience was magic. We made wonderful family memories that we will all cherish forever. Our four year old son struggled to part with Hugo (so did I!) upon our return. We enjoyed the experience of staying on Blakes' Farm for the first night and our young son was amused and entertained by the goats and other animals visible from the camping zone. We also spent quality family time playing games that I had not seen for many years! The facilities were well thought out with a covered eating and cooking area as well as a shaded seating and fire pit area. The views were very pretty and the warm outdoor shower is an experience not to be missed! Krystyna and Bruce were very accommodating from start to finish and even made sure to call us back immediately when we had a technical question to ask. Hugo was a pleasure to drive and definitely a conversation starter as we drove around! It was great to experience what driving was like in 1978! The interior fridge, cooker, sink, split roof and bed were easy to use and comfortable to sleep on. Hugo was well maintained and well equipped including charging points for mod cons and internal lights. If this has been something you have wanted to do you will not be disappointed!

Cosy camper with a sunny disposition

My family booked Saffron for a surprise glamping weekend to mark my 60th. Easy to drive and easy on the eye she gets honks of approval and appreciative waves wherever she goes - it's like you've secretly joined the classic car club. Inside is immaculate with a retro look mixed with modern comforts like 2-ring hob, sink with running water, phone chargers and bluetooth audio. It is deceptively roomy for a family of four by day, quickly converting into a cosy bedroom for 2 by night. The pop up side tent slept our 2 grown up kids comfortably and was really quick and easy to put up. Thanks too to Krystyna for her excellent communication, help and advice pre- and post-booking. All in all great fun.

Really easy communication, really helpful guidance of how to use the van and it’s facilities, really great camper and phenomenal holiday. Wouldn’t change a thing, can’t wait to holiday with summer breeze campers again!

An adventure to remember in Izzy!

We had the best time taking Izzy away on a tour of the south, the weather was spectacular & Izzy was fantastic. She has all the charms of the 1970s camper with some added mod cons which made hiring her an absolute pleasure. The bed was incredibly comfy (Krystyna supplied the van with a mattress topper which was greatly appreciated), the hobs swivel out so you can cook without losing precious space in the van & the electric hook up means that you can charge various things without worrying about draining any batteries (there is also a solar panel). Once the (beautifully retro) pop top is up you've got more than enough space to strand & all in all its surprisingly roomy. Izzy attracts a lot of admirers at any campsite, you'll find yourself waving to any other VW vans you come across, she has so much character & we will definitely be taking her out again. Renting from Krystyna & Bruce was a pleasure, they made sure we knew everything we needed to about the van, from how to assemble the bed - to putting the pop top up. The van was also supplied with anything you could need for a few days away, we rented the retro driveaway tent and it was perfect for allowing us to take day trips away from the sites without lugging any camping kit around. Relatively simple to put up & no leaks even when we had torrential rain on the last night. The engine has clearly been kept in good condition, we had no issues over the 7 days we hired her & it was a pleasure to dive! Would definitely recommend Summer Breeze to anyone looking for a an authentic VW Hire experience. 10/10 we'll be renting again!

Wonderful trip in Saffron!

Everything about our experience with Summer Breeze campers was great, from the contact with Krystyna before, our trip away and handover at the end. We had 3 nights in the gorgeous Saffron, she was a dream to drive and I couldn’t stop smiling for the whole journey! The kids absolutely loved it, she is really well kitted out and very comfortable to sleep in. We will definitely be hiring her again! Thanks so much Krystyna!
