Who are Calico Campers?
In a nutshell, we’re just a couple of campervan enthusiasts!
If you’ve ever campervanned before, you’ll know the incredible feeling it gives you, and if you haven’t, we’re here for you.
Based in Cheshire, we’re perfectly placed to help you explore the incredible beauty this country has to offer, and with free unlimited miles, there’s plenty of exploring to be done.
Our best bits
The two halves of Calico Campers
Calico Campers was born out of a long-lasting love of travelling, planning adventures and being together. It feels natural to us to pack light, make a last minute plan, and hit the road, not really knowing where we might end up. For us, being in a campervan gives you an exclusive pass to seeing the most VIP parts of the country; because you can get lost, drive down a curious-looking road and find some incredible places that you wouldn’t have even known existed.
We’re all guilty of relying on the internet to literally tell us where to go, what to eat, where to sleep, and as helpful as the internet is for sparking ideas, we can’t tell you the joy it brings us to be driving along and to see a side road that looks interesting, and before we know it, we’re somewhere truly stunning and unexpected.
We have both always enjoyed camping holidays as kids, and we both love the outdoors; Claire prefers hiking and Mark prefers anything adrenaline based! But for over ten years, we’ve perfected our adventures together.
We own another campervan that’s not part of the Calico fleet; his name is DeVito and he’s a 23 year old Mercedes Vito. Let’s just say he’s full of ‘character’ and every road trip in him is eventful!
We feel very proud to have set up Calico Campers, and we just want to create a community of campervan lovers and to spread the joy of road trip adventures, because we should never take for granted the beauty this country has to offer. Handing over the campervan is so exciting to us, but the best part of this is when our campers return and they have had the best time. Hearing your stories, seeing your pictures on our Facebook and Instagram page and reading your reviews makes all of this worthwhile, so thank you.
