JollyCampers - Mason's Farm, North Yorks

What a wonderful way to start the summer holidays!!  A weekend campervanning in the Baron in the North Yorkshire Dales.

We picked up the van from Jolly and Aly which was really clean and surprisingly spacious.  The campervans are kitted out extremely well with every corner of the van put to good use for storage or equipment.  Having been used to driving an automatic car, the van felt strange to begin with but we very soon had the hang of it and enjoyed a lovely journey through the hills and dales.   

We arrived at Masons campsite in Appletreewick which had been recommended by Jolly and Aly.  It is located in a beautiful valley, alongside a shallow stream, with clean facilities and within walking distance to 2 local pubs – which is always a bonus!

The children slept in the top and there was more than enough room for our 3 little ones.  They loved the novelty of sleeping up there and were the envy of the other kids on the camp-site.  They took great pride in showing their new found friends around their new home for the weekend.

Jolly and Aly have thought of everything, team, coffee, sugar, cafetiere, camp chairs, blankets for sitting out at night when it started to get a bit chilly, and lovely cosy bedding for the night time.  With the awning on the side, there was plenty of space for all our mountains of gear.

We had a fantastic time in the Baron, the weather was great for the first 2 days which allowed us to sit out, relax and BBQ whilst the kids played around with the other children on the site.  On the last night, it chucked it down.  We were very grateful to be tucked up snugly in the campervan rather than sleeping under canvass.  We woke up to find that some of the tents had actually packed up and gone.  Thank goodness for the Baron!!

It was a superb experience for the children – they loved every minute of it, but lso for us.  Great times, with great friends, looking forward to doing it again – thanks guys xx

JollyCampers - Leeds Festival

We had an amazing weekend in The Baron! A lover of all things VW my husband didn't stop beaming all weekend and certainly enjoyed the admiring glances from all we passed on our travels! 

The children LOVED sleeping in the roof, the beautiful van has everything you need and is ingenious in having a place for everything. We were cosy as anything as the rain battered down in a biblical fashion in the early hours of the Saturday morning.

We were gutted at having to return it on the Monday but have vowed to hire it again very soon!

JollyCampers - Down South

We hired Penfold for a week to celebrate our Wedding anniversary in style… As novice VW Campers we were excited and Penfold more than lived up to our expectations! 

We did a lot of travelling to visit places both old and new and delighted in ‘flashing’ and waving at other VW Campers (like being part of a secret society!), and we would encourage other hirers to be confident in navigating minor roads rather than just motorways… Penfold is meant for driving leisurely. 

We found Penfold comfortable at night and were impressed at how every cupboard and drawer concealed something useful. 

The team at Jolly Campervans were friendly and helpful and we would highly recommend hiring from them. We were very sad to return Penfold at the end of our holiday!

JollyCampers - Paul & Debs Week in the Lakes

We  booked the campervan at very short notice...a last minute thing really but it turned into a fab few days. 

Organising collection was quick n easy and sooner than expected we were on the road heading for the lakes! The van...awesomely retro....attracted a few waves and beeps from what we'd like to think were envious onlookers. 

It's not the fastest or easiest to handle of vehicles but we soon got the hang of it and had no dramas along the way. We did quite a bit of driving to and around the lakes calling in at Ambleside, Windermere, Grassmere and Patterdale. Some windy roads n steep hills but the van coped well. 

Sooo much better than coming back to a tent after a hard day in the hills and we were able to cook up a treat on the BBQ n gas stove with no trouble. Everything we needed was at hand. 

We didnt really use campsites and just pulled up wherever we fancied in some idyllic picturesque spots that you couldn't get with a tent or b&b! 

Overall an amazing few days....highly recommended!! :-)

Jolly Campers - Yorkshire

Hi Jolly & Aly,

Here are some pictures from our glorious week's holiday in 'the baron'

We were blessed with a week of outstanding weather and really did feel we were 'living the life or dream' as Martin Dorey so aptly puts in his book 'The Campervan Coast'. 

We started with the Moonbeam wold top folk festival north of Driffield and then went up along the yorkshire coast and over the yorkshire moors staying at some lovely campsites. Your website was very good at giving us some ideas and was very comprehensive.

We found the van so well kitted out and designed so were very comfortable and found you very helpful and re assuring answering all our questions. Your instruction book was brilliant - particularly on getting the bed down! The test for me was returning and my husband a somewhat reluctant camper turning to me and saying ' that was one of the best holidays we've ever had'. We look forward to some more trips - you have started us on a journey and who knows where it will lead! We will be recommending you to our friends.Thank you.

JollyCampers - Wild Camping

Wow long time no post, a very happy belated New Year to you all.  It really annoys Jolly when I say it but I really don't know where the time goes.

So far Penfold and The Baron have been nicely busy this year but they can always fit more adventures in so if you fancy taking full advantage of this glorious weather we are forecast to have over the next couple of weeks take a look at our availability calender and get in contact.

JollyCampervans Availability Calender

We are actually going on our first camping exhibition of the year this weekend with some university friends and their family to Bosworth Water Trust Campsite so super excited about that.

Anyway point of the blog was to share this lovely review we have just received from another Jolly Camper

We recently celebrated our first wedding anniversary by hiring a camper van from Jolly Campervans. 
The van was ready and waiting on the date to pick up with Jolly there to talk me through all of the details from how the van drove to how to operate the cooker which put me at ease.
The service was excellent, I was delighted at what came with the van and the fact we didn't need to bring pans etc, and that we could set off and be ready to pull up anywhere to enjoy the view.
That's just what we did, toured across the Yorkshire Dales and then through the Clevelend Hills across the North Yorkshire Moors wild camping all the way. We pulled the van up where we could, which was surprisingly almost anywhere, made sure we took away what we brought and took in the surroundings.
The van ran efficiently and took on the steep winding moorland roads of the North Yorkshire Moors with no problem. Such a joy to experience driving across the country side and having the world look at us in awe at the style. The van became a talking point where ever I pulled up bringing a smile to my face and whoever I passed.
 I have no doubt that I will be hiring a campervan from Jolly and Aly again and again. 
 They are spacious with the roof up, with everything you need and a fantastic service.
