Webooked 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!
