South coast VW campervan hire from a seaside pick-up point in Bournemouth

Pick up one of Barbarella's campervans in Bournemouth and incredible adventures are bound to follow. Much like the 1960’s movie spacewoman she’s named after, this campervan looks good, travels well and loves to be where the action is.

To the north it’s the New Forest National Park, east is the little-known New Forest coast and, if you fancy heading south, it’s not out of the question as the launch point for the Isle of Wight ferries is not far away. Perhaps most tempting of all is to cruise west into Dorset to trace the Jurassic Coast. Starting from Poole Harbour, you can look for fossils at Kimmeridge Bay, take a boat trip from idyllic Lulworth Cove, swim at Durdle Door and build sandcastles at Charmouth. The coast, countryside and campsites make it a destination that is nothing short of campervantastic.

The Owner Says

We would like to welcome you to Barbarella Camper Hire, our newly converted T5 and T6 VW campervans. Our campers have everything you will need to escape, explore and relax and is perfect for couples, friends or young families wanting to get away from it all and independently enjoy the great outdoors.

We are situated in Bournemouth on the Dorset coast and ideally located to explore the outstanding Jurassic coastline and all this stunning area has to offer! We can also make recommendations on places to visit, camp, walk, cycle and dine, to get the most out of your trip.

Safety is important to us so Babs and Ella have full service history and come with fully comprehensive insurance and breakdown cover included in the price for both UK and Europe.

They drive 5: with 3 upfront and 2 in the back, and sleeps 4: 2 adults on a comfortable rock and roll double bed with memory foam base and space for 2 kids in the pop top above with a comfortable high dense foam mattress.

The vans are easily driven, fit and park anywhere and converts easily to provide 4 berths or a comfortable living/dining area with a front double swivelling facing seat.

We are flexible with pick up and drop off times and you can leave your car with us. We are also available for longer hire periods at a discounted rates upon request.

We carry out a pre rental safety inspection prior to each hire. Please inform us if you are planning on taking them to a festival.

Myself, my wife and our 2 young kids and our dog Monty just love the outdoor lifestyle and the versatility of having a campervan. We have owned our camper for 7 years now and it has provided us with so many fantastic memories from days out mountain biking in the New Forest to paddle boarding on the beautiful Dorset coastline and even travelling further afield to holidaying in France and Ireland. As a result we have taken on Babs and Ella, new additions to our family so others can share in the fun of having a campervan! We provide a thorough and friendly handover and contactable at any time during your trip to ensure you have an enjoyable and stress free holiday!

** We provide enhanced cleaning as standard and COVID sanitisation, to give you peace of mind for your trip away with us **

A great break away in a Barbarella camper

We had a great camping experience in the camper van. Really appreciated the solar panel for electricity for non hook up camping. The van was well equipped and very comfortable to drive, sleep in, cook in, and dine al fresco in comfortable camping chairs looking out to the sea. Thank you for making the pick up and drop off so easy and providing a van that was so easy to be in, dog included! I hope we have a few more days next time we visit the Dorset coast.
