Sunset Camper Hire

UK England South West England Cornwall Bodmin

Vintage VW campervan hire from a base in central Cornwall

There’s no denying that Cornwall and campervans are a match made in roadtrip heaven. The couple behind Sunset Camper Hire certainly think so. In fact, Simon and Heidi believed it so strongly that they decided to up sticks from their base in the Midlands and relocate both business and home to the UK’s south-west corner. Of course, they took their babies with them, that’s their two beautifully looked-after vintage VW vans, not to mention the kids. It was on family campervanning holidays that they decided Cornwall was “the best coastline in the UK” and they are happy to share their tips on places to visit. From the pick-up point in Lanivet, close to Bodmin Moor, the south and north Cornish coasts are about equidistant so take your pick – or cruise round it all. Head to the south coast for the Eden Project, the Roseland Heritage Coast and the Lizard Peninsula or north to Tintagel and surfing hotspots like Newquay. Devon and Dartmoor are also within reach. Wherever you choose to cruise, if you’re anything like Simon and Heidi, you might find it hard to leave the Cornish campervan dream behind.
