We chose Morecambe and Wize Sales Ltd to supply our vehicles for one reason. We think they are the best. At the time of writing they have 23 VW Campers in various stages of restoration and are going from strength to strength each year. We just hope they can fit us in when we grow our fleet! Check out this short promotional video, we think this is awesome! For more information about our Try Before You Buy VW Camper Hire service please click here.
Gold Coast OceanFest 2018 | Camper Van Hire Devon
Every June Croyde Bay in North Devon comes alive with Campervans of all shapes and sizes as party goers, music lovers and extreme sports fans hit the Gold Coast Oceanfest and move into the village for a weekend of food, sport and music. Not your average messy cider fuelled weekend under canvas, this family friendly festival is for those who truly love to get our doors and make the most of summer and the North Devon Coast line. Here’s what the organisers say…
“If you could bottle a beachside festival and pour it out each year against the backdrop of a sun drenched Atlantic, then the multi award winning GoldCoast Oceanfest might be just the brew to choose.
It’s big enough to create a great party atmosphere,
yet small enough to not be overwhelming.
Oceanfest blends a potentially intoxicating, eclectic and laid-back mix of quality music, exhilarating surf, action packed sports, locally sourced food and family‑friendly fun.”
Last year both our camper vans were booked up early January for this awesome event, so if you are considering going we advise to book early.
The price for a weekends camper van hire June 15th 2.00pm to June 18th 10.00am is £395.00 inclusive of insurance. Our campers are fully equipped with everything you need to cook and dine, just bring your food and bedding. We are located just 25 mins from Croyde Bay and have safe off road parking for your vehicle while you are away in our campers. Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Saunton Beach are all within a short drive so there’s lots to explore when you’re not at the party! Get in touch to book your OceanFest adventure.
We were delighted when a producer for local marketing and branding agency, Bray Leino, got in touch to ask us if they could use one of our campers for a clients latest marketing campaign. Working with a ‘Toast Artist’ they toured the South West creating landmarks our of toast to promote a new range of kitchen appliances for TEFAL. See if you can spot which camper they took out for a spin!
So the leaves are beginning to fall, nights are darker and well it’s all bit dull really isn’t it! Don’t get us wrong, Devon’s beach’s are empty, the water is still relatively warm and there’s long cliff top walks and cosy pub lunches to look forward to. But what’s next? If you are anything like us you’ll start planning your next holiday early, the brochures will come out, you’ll check the prices of holidays on the Internet and dream of escaping to somewhere new. So next year why not consider something different and dare to do a VW camper van holiday to Devon!

Personally we think you can’t beat fresh fish and chips out of the paper by the seaside, but if Oysters are a must then you won’t go home disappointed either.

They say it’s lucky if it rains on your wedding day…
Last weekend Tom received a wonderful birthday surprise from wife Lindsay… A weekend away in a VW Camper with the kids! Being local to North Devon they decided to head for Somerset and the Quantocks for a change of scenery. Here’s what they had to say”
“An absolute must! Hire one of these vans out, pack up and take off for a great break . I hired one for a birthday present went off with the kids too. Hire the awning for the extra space. We loved snuggling up at night with hot chocolate and dvds all cosy. My little girl thought she was king pin up in the bunk! Thank you Greg might have to hire it again soon!”
Thanks for the kind words guys, it sounds like you had a great time in Eddie, we’d love to have you back again 🙂

This August we were lucky enough to be asked to chauffeur the Bride to be, and her family to the stunning Exeter Cathedral for the wedding of Sarah and Ben.
The preparations were being made at the reception venue at the wonderful, The Oak Barn, Barton Farm, Hittisleigh near Exeter so we are arrived and sneakily parked around the back at this had been arranged by the groom as a surprise for his fiancee. Eddie was dressed in his rose quartz ribbons to match the weddings theme, and on the nod, we pulled through the front gates to a surprised Sarah who wasn’t expecting to see a classic Volkswagen camper van as her wedding car! After negotiating the busy holiday traffic on the way into Exeter, pulled up right outside the main entrance to the cathedral to a group of well wishers and intrigued general public. Eddie and chauffeur patiently waited for the service to be complete before safely delivering the happy couple back to the pick up point for a relaxed barn style reception. Congratulations Sarah & Ben, we hope married life is treating you well! x
This weekend we attended the Wedding day of Dean & Sheree who had come all the way from Essex for their Croyde Bay Wedding. Ernie and I collected the bride, father of the bride and bridesmaids and drove them short distance to the Guild Hall in Barnstaple where the happy couple were to be married at 12.30pm. After the service we braved the holiday traffic and took a detour through the rape fields to arrive at Lime Kiln Field in Croyde Bay for the reception. Sheree had worked hard to create her beachside wedding which included a marquee with formal dining by the excellent Rhubarb and Cream Catering and our very own Ernie as a Photo Booth. I think it’s fair to say that he went down a storm with the kids and grown ups alike! It’s feedback like this that makes the hard work worth while…
Good evening Greg and Ernie
The photos are stunning, when we booked the photo booth with you we didn’t even check it out, We just thought it sounded quirky so we will give it a go. Never did I expect the photos to be so fab, the children and adults loved it!
I honestly do not no where to begin with telling you how awesome you and Ernie are! You made me feel very relaxed with the drive to dean and i’s ceremony I genuinely felt like Ernie was mine for the day!
You and Ernie were dressed fabulously for the occasion which added that extra bit or quirkiness, although you have to agree Ernie would look even better with some ditsy floral Cath Kidston curtains! 😉
After receiving feed back from our guests it’s seems that yourself and Ernie were also a big hit with them too!
I can not fault the service you provided for us, your business is genuinely run to perfection.
It was a privilege to have a genuine down to earth guy be a part of our big day!
You and Ernie should be mega proud of what you have!
All the best for the future, I will not think twice about using your services again.
All our love
The new Mr & Mrs Colby

Have you been to the Tunnels Beaches at Ilfracombe yet? If not then you’re missing out. These victorian bathing pools were created as safe heaven to bathe back when the sea water was considered ‘medicinal for ones self’, and to meet the steady demand as Tourism grew with the expansion of the railways and increase in disposable time and income. These days the pools are still used by families and couples alike and it’s owners have added a number of upmarket twists to the unique location.
The Tunnels Beaches has more recently gained in popularity as a beach side wedding venue after the addition of the bespoke bar and dining area which is set for expansion in 2017. Nestled in the rocky cliffs overlooking the deck and our to see we think it’s the perfect place to get married in North Devon and were lucky enough to spend Claire & Justin’s big day with them last month. Thank you to the fantastic Nova Photography for sharing these images with us. We think you’ll agree they are simply stunning!
