JollyCampers adventures in Sproatley

We arrived at Jolly Campervan HQ full of excitement for our first overnight adventure in the Baron. We were not disappointed! The van was beautifully clean and well equipped. There was a thorough handover of the camper and we felt very prepared to set out on our journey. In addition to the patient and friendly handover, the Baron comes with a manual in case you should forget anything!

We chose an awesome campsite in Burton Constable (http://www.burtonconstable.co.uk) for our maiden voyage. My husband used to visit when he was a lad and so it was a trip down memory lane. We took our 2 nephews and they absolutely loved it. The site was immaculate with brilliant shower facilities, room for the boys to play football without causing a nuisance and a mix of static caravans, tents and motorhomes. As it was bank holiday, they had some live music at the on site bar (think jazz rather than heavy metal!) and a hog roast. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon!

After we had worn the boys out, we retreated to the Baron which had gathered quite a crowd of admirers! If you bunk in the Baron be prepared to make lots of new friends! We set up the BBQ- provided in the van- and gathered round for a nostalgic feast of burgers and toasted marshmallows. With full bellies, we popped open the roof and set the kids to sleep! The pop up bed is a sturdy double and was more than adequate for 2 boys. They loved the fact they could unzip the windows and keep a look out from their new den!

We were genuinely surprised by the space inside the Baron- it's quite a tardis! As well as a double up top, there is another double for the grown ups and we slept like logs. Usually when camping, you're awake with the sun but because of the luxury of curtains, we all slept through until 9. Quite a treat! Once up, we used the very well equipped kitchen to make the obligatory camping bacon butties and brews .  We were pleasantly surprised to find coffee, tea, salt etc... all of the things you would want but are likely to forget! 

After a hearty breakfast we set off on the road again to take the Baron back home knowing we had made some lovely new memories for the boys. They enjoyed the van so much, they both took the time to draw us thank you cards.  When you book through Jolly Campervans, you're not just paying for a van, you're paying for a wonderful experience and very fond memories.

JollyCampers - Out and about with The Baron

"Just returned from a fantastic east coast tour in The Baron. He came fully loaded with everything we needed. The pick-up process and demonstration was relaxed and informative and for most part we paid attention ( too excited about the prospect of spending some quality time with The Baron)

Our first destination was Fylingthorpe just outside Robin Hoods Bay. Middle Wood Farm site. Three days in a wonderful campsite with a path down to the beach and the pub. The perfect spot to see the area and Whitby's 2014 Fish N Chip shop of the year. It wasn't the Magpie. The facilities and co-workers on site are fantastic. The jazzy waistcoat wearing milk/egg delivery man is a real character. Top tip for Vodaphone users, you can get a signal just outside the reception door. 

Making friends in the Baron is so easy everyone wants to meet a T2 camper and sometimes the driver too. Mainly to confirm we are treating the V UU with the respect it deserves. 

The toaster!  Took a while to work out what it was and how it worked. We should have paid attention during the demonstration. Intrigued? My lips are sealed what goes on during a camping trip stays on the trip. 

Next stop the Northumbrian Coast. Wow, The Baron ate up the miles and the journey seems so much quicker when other V UU drivers wave and passers by smile. We set up camp in a beautiful site in Dunstan Hill. Short walk to a castle in one direction and a short walk to a real ale pub just off the beech in the other. Perfect, The Baron acquired a few more admirers no change there then. 

Next stop Sea Houses the site in Beadnell is fantastic just a short hop across the dunes and you are on the beach, great facilities and friendly co-workers. Easy walk into Sea Houses and Beadnell

On the trip home The Baron behaved as he had all week, gathering admiring glances and friendly waves, eating up the miles. 

The Baron was spotless when we met him and it only seemed fair to hand him back in the same condition. Normally I hate cleaning up, ask my partner. I actually enjoyed taking care of The Baron. 

Overall a fantastic trip, wonderful peeps at JollyCampers and best of all we got to meet The Baron.

If you fancy getting away from it all, seeing the countryside at a pace Mother Nature intended and a brief insight into driving a vehicle with character and personality. I would highly recommend Jolly Campers."

JollyCampers - The Dales

Hi Jolly & Aly
Thank you for Hiring out the Baron to us, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do and now I’m hooked. It was so much fun, we decided roughly where we wanted to go in the Dales but didn’t forward book anything so we could be flexible (benefits of going off peak times) and it worked perfectly. When we found a road we liked the look of we took off and found some breathtaking scenery, plus some very steep hills which were fun! The trusty Baron got us up every hill, and kept us fed and watered on route. Then when we camped for the night we put up the awning for the boys to sleep in while we kept nice and warm inside ;_)
We've been enthusing about our camper van trip with friends and family so much that I think we might have to compete for the vans next time as everyone wants to have a go.

You were so easy to book with, couldn’t have been simpler. You will definitely be seeing us again soon.
