    We hired ‘Betty’ for an adventure up to Stirling. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time from start to finish.
    John made sure that we were well informed about every feature of the camper. The van was clean and spacious and fun to live in and drive.(our dogs lived it too!
    John offers help whenever needed.
    Liberty campers ……. A great way to enjoy the outdoors………really efficient,friendly caring business.

    Had a great week in “Percy”, up to the Lakes with no issues at all.
    Good driving experience and at a great pace, stopping as we wanted for a brew and to enjoy the comforts.
    More than we expected regards facilities and comfort, will be booking again next year and hopefully travelling further and enjoying the UK in a lovely vehicle.
    Service was excellent with good communication and instruction when we picked up “Percy”.
    Thanks Richard and Karey..

    We have just hired Liberty for a few days to go up to the North East coast. The camper was great and very easy driving whether on motorway or Yorkshire Dales. Very well kitted out van and friendly helpful service from John – highly recommended

    Just returned from a great weekend adventure with Percy.
    We certainly put him through his paces to get across the Yorkshire Dales but he is an absolute trooper & certainly made us & other traffic smile.
    If you fancy a weekend with a difference he certainly fits the bill.
    Many thanks John for your assurance & guidance on our first adventure, we will be in touch when ready for our next one !

    We so enjoyed the company of Dougal last weekend. It was a first for us in many different ways – first time in a camper / camping as a family, first time at a music festival for our soon to be 4 year old twins and first time driving a “traditional” 1970s style camper for my partner. It was perfect for the little ones who thorougly enjoyed sleeping in the roof! They had such a lovely time that they gave Dougal a big hug before we had to reluctantly give him back. I would definitely recommend Liberty Campers – the camper was in very good condition and John was very helpful throughout. Just waiting for the festival dates for next year and hoping we can be reunited with Dougal or one of his friends for another adventure. This is the stuff memories of made of. Thanks Liberty Campers!

    We have just returned after an amazing weekend in Daisy! We were invited to a wedding at a farm in Derbyshire and didn’t fancy camping so decided to try a campervan for the first time. We found Daisy to be great fun and she certainly caused a stir wherever we went and especially at the wedding! It was comfy and spacious enough for the two of us. The driving was enjoyable once we got used to the gears and lack of power steering. All contact with John was very efficient and Daisy had everything we needed. We were very sad to hand her back on Monday morning and will definitely be hiring from Liberty Campers again.

    We hired Berty for a 3 day coastal adventure! As usual the service from John and Tracey at Liberty Campers was faultless. Berty was easy to drive, you felt like you were driving a car rather than a van!! There was masses of storage and the captains passenger seats made evenings in the van more sociable. Berty travelled up to Bempton cliffs, over to Robin Hoods Bat and then across to near Ripon on his adventures. We will definitely be wanting another adventure in one of the vans soon!!

    Thanks again,

    Sophie & Gail xx

    We hired Dylan as our wedding car in December. Right from the start Tracey and John were fantastic – great service, very friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. On the day Tracey was on time and was a great help – helping me with my dress, making sure everything rang smoothly, and driving us beautifully to our venue. We couldn’t have asked for more really, and at a very reasonable price! Thanks again Tracey, John and especially Dylan!

    We have just returned Daisy after a long weekend with her, doing day trips from home near Castle Howard out to the coast. She was a brilliant surprise for my daughter having passed her grade 5 clarinet exam, and she was embarassed but chuffed to be met from school by Daisy. The driving was fun, although I never really got the hang of hill starts! I did spend a lot of time smiling and waving at people, which was fab.. We enjoyed sitting out in Daisy in the evening, just chatting and playing music, and having tea and toast in the morning. Daisy was surprisingly spacious and very comfy. My two girls slept out overnight, and were cosy despite it being a cold one.
    We really miss her – it was a fun weekend and would urge anyone looking for an unusual, fun, and friendly weekend or week, to contact Daisy’s keepers – Tracy and John, who are so helpful.
    We plan to hire yet another one soon – we have our eyes on Percy!

    We hired Daisy for a long weekend trip to the Lake District. It was great! Although the weather was a little bit fresh and very windy, Daisy kept us warm at night, even without the heating. The mountain streets with an extrem gradient were no problem thanks to the new engine. All in all Daisy is in perfect shape and we had a lot of fun!
    Thanks again, John, it was a wonderful trip and we much appreciated your helpfulness and your uncomplicated manner!

    We have just returned from an excellent holiday to Northumberland in ‘Liberty’. We couldn’t fault the organisation, value for money and general friendliness of John at Liberty Campers. It was our first camper van trip and despite the time of year we had a fabulous holiday. The North East is a great destination and we enjoyed stopping off at various places to brew up the most. If you have any reservations about this type of holiday, just go for it, you will have a great time.

    We hired Percy for the may bank holiday weekend. We were blessed with glorious weather in the dales and a happy chappy vw camper van. Percy was a wonderful companion, co-operative, reliable and surprisingly comfortable.
    As first time campervaners ,Tracy and John were patient and full of handy tips and advise, nothing was too much trouble, even when we got lost on the return home and Percy was a little late home,( dirty stop out ! ) .
    We hope to see Percy again soon, and recommend Liberty Campers to anyone.

  15. Melanie Bennett Says:

    Many thanks to John and Tracey for making my partners 50th a Birthday to remember. Dougal was everything we had hoped for and more. The flexibility of collecting him was much appreciated and meant I kept the surprise up until the very last minute. We feel there is a little hole in our lives without him. Thanks Again. Mel & Mark.

  16. Amanda Rook Says:

    Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to the very lovely Dylan who really was the star of our Spring 1212 Mamas & Papas baby wear photo shoot.
    We set up camp in a drive in studio over in Manchester back on a cold day in October, but looking at our pictures you would have thought they were taken in a California sun set after a hot summers day. Dylan was loved by all the children more than we could have ever imagined, honking the horn and pretending to drive, they laughed and gigged to their hearts content, we could never have wished for a more successful shoot, and I believe Dylan loved it just as much as the kids did!

    And finally a big thank you to Tracey for bringing him over to the shoot and making sure he sparkled from every angle, he really was a beauty.

    We really hope we get to meet Dylan again or even some of his friends on a future shoot.

    Thanks again, Amanda & the M&P team x

    I wanted to thank Tracey and John for making our special day even more special! My partner and I our mad VW campervan fans and our bridesmaids had secretly organized a trip in Dylan the day of our civil partnership ceremony. It was 3 days before Christmas and snow was everywhere, a perfect setting for a drive around the Yorkshire Moors. It was our first trip in a VW and we werenโ€™t disappointed. Tracey and John were fantastic hosts and had thought of everything. Mulled wine, blankets โ€“ the lot!

    It was such a fantastic idea of our bridesmaids and meant Jo and I could actually spend sometime together on the day of our wedding (doing something we love, we are now looking for our very own VW) . Our photos of Dylan and us in our dresses are beautiful โ€“ what a day to remember. Perfect!

    My partner and I hired Dougal from Liberty campers for my birthday 23rd April to 26 th April 09. What can we say!From the moment you arrive at Liberty campers your made to feel welcome and your holiday starts the moment you step into your campervan. Dougal was everthing you could wish for and more. If your nuts about vw campervans then you will already know that the world is a different place from inside one. Home does become where you park him. The whole experience was totaly fantastic. Dougal likes to steal the show wherever you take him so watch out wherever you go people will want to admire him and he laps up all the attention. We went to heartbeat country and they were filming… its not many times a whole cast and filming crew have stopped what they were doing to watch me drive by… but i knew it was dougal they were looking at. Dougal has everthing you could wish for in a campervan and even attracted the attention of other vw lovers on camp sites. campervans/dougal is a love affair with freedom and fun, he should be on perscription…. because he is addictive. Will we be hiring from liberty again OH YES!!! Without a doubt.
    Lauren & Keith
