British Summer Time Begins

Well that’s what it tells us in our diaries for Sunday, so I’m happy to go with this plan.

“What do you mean the clocks are springing forward, making this Spring?”

If you are anything like me, you will optimistically be looking out flip-flops (actually mine have never been put away) and dreaming of sunny roadtrips and BBQs.

As our fourth holiday hire of the week buzzes out of our forecourt, I’m still wondering where the winter months went.

When things quietened down for us in October, we took to the roads ourselves on an adventure to Orkney in Lola. At that time the winter months stretched ahead with more than enough time to do all we wanted in readiness for Easter 2016.

Now it is upon us and most of what we hoped to achieve is completed; we are loving being back to what we do best: looking after our guests and sharing the joy of our VWs with them.

I have to say Solway Campers & Raptor Restoration have worked so hard on our campervans over the winter months that they have been mechanically and cosmetically maintained to an enviably high standard. New parts galore have been lavished on them (as my Bank Manager knows only too well!)

Those air-cooled engines are now chugging up the Bealach Na Ba, along the North Coast 500 ,down the Northumbrian Coast and over the sea to Skye; spreading smiles, waves and happiness wherever they wander.

If you too would like a Vintage VW Campers adventure in 2016, then please book here.

Blondie sleeps 4 adults & an infant up to 35kg

+optional Nodpod hire- sleeps 2 more adults

Blondie has 5 seats, she has one 3 point seat-belt in the back and two lap-belts. The front seats both have 3 point seatbelts.

Please bring appropriate car seats for your children with you.

Due to recommendations on rear facing seats for infants, we do not recommend those under 5 years travel.

Please do not book our campervans unless you have driven a manual transmission vehicle on the left hand side of the road, within the last two years. Driving a classic is different from a modern car & there is no power steering. We welcome good, careful drivers only.
