Meet your host, New Horizon Camper Van Hire

Member since 2018Dealer

We have always had an interest in VW campers and vans and over the years we’ve owned a varied selection of them. Our love and interest for VW campers and vans started us on the road to setting up New Horizon Camper Van Hire in 2017. Our mission, well to ensure we keep our lovely old T2 campers on the road and sharing their quirkiness with like minded people who want to experience them but not have the hassle of owning one. We added to the fleet a modern T5 Leisure Drive Vivante too which still has the spirit of the original camper but offers just a little bit more comfort and refinement for those of you seeking a longer adventure. We love adventure and travel too and want to make your adventure or holiday as perfect as possible when you hire from us.

Bessie is a two berth VW Type 2 built in 1977. She is equipped with a rock and roll bed, a sink and 2 burner hob. She has a leisure battery on-board which powers the lighting and 12v sockets. She is fitted out with cupboards to store you belongings and clothes. Bessie has a pop-top which means the roof can be raised when you’re camping to give extra head height when in the van.

We had an amazing time with Bessie and Mike was an absolute pleasure to deal with who was always available over the phone when needed. Spotlessly clean with all the necessary bits like pots and pans included to make your time away very comfortable, we wouldn't hesitate in doing it all over again! It's been a few weeks since our booking, but we still reminisce about it on a regular basis! :)
