What a fantastic set up Claire and Mark are, excellent and so helpful and accommodating from start to finish. I had to work late last minute and my wife had to collect the camper. It was all last minute but was no problem and they were great. The van ‘ARCHIE’ was fantastic we loved every minute. The van was clean and had a full inventory. I would recommend to anyone as we will be going back and hiring the bigger one, thank you so much for making our break away so relaxing keep up the great work!

We have always wanted to do the NC500 and we did a little research and decided to choose a small camper van for our first road trip so it wouldn’t be too intimidating, especially for parking and knowing we faced narrow winding roads etc. After a little research, we decided to use Calico Campers. Claire the manager/owner was great and she was the main reason we picked Calico, on top of very competitive pricing, friendly service and any queries were responded to promptly.
We did over 2000 miles in our little camper in 10 days and it handled it effortlessly. Inside is snug , but clean and comfy and ideal for a couple. In short I would recommend Calico Campers to anyone and thank you Claire for enabling us to have a brilliant road trip. Thank you again.

We had a fab week touring the NC500 and parts of Northumberland. Highly recommend Claire and Calico Campers, very friendly and professional. Such a great way to relax and escape and to explore such a beautiful part of the country.

I’ve never been one to go camping or ‘camper vanning’ before but I’m now fully converted! We got in touch with Calico Campers after hearing about them through a friend and what a recommendation it was! We took the smaller of the two vans to Edinburgh for the weekend from Chester. There was myself, my wife (7 months pregnant) and our dog Milo. My only real concern initially was the space in the back for all of us to sleep and be comfortable but that concern was quickly suppressed after our first night when we all slept like babies. There was plenty of room for all of us and the blackout blinds, really are black out blinds.

From our initial enquiry with Claire – one of the owners, to dropping the van back off after our trip, the service was faultless. The petrol tank was full when we picked it up and the van was spotless. We were shown where everything was and what/how to operate within the van and off we went.

Claire was kind enough to return our calls after we had an issue with the electricity, which ended up being the campsites issue in the end anyway, but she talked us through everything we needed to do – of course there was the detailed manual available in the bus so contacting Claire was our last resort but she was happy to help which was great.

Our trip to Edinburgh was amazing and made that extra bit better with Calico Campers, I can’t recommend them enough!

Just got back from a long weekend in “ARCHIE”. The whole experience was amazing from the collection to the drop off and only cost us £13 in fuel thanks to eco driving all weekend. Claire talked us through everything we needed to know and was almost as eager for us to have a good time as we were. She was also very accommodating when we asked to drop the van back a bit later than the drop off time (we didn’t want our break to end 🙂). Archie was great and has just what you need for a short break. I would definitely recommend Calico Campers and we are even looking at dates to book “DANI”. Thank you once again, see you soon.

Back from Silverstone watching the F1 racing which we took van ‘ARCHIE’ and what a fantastic experience that was. Really comfortable drive, although only 2-berth it was much more spacious than we were expecting, clean, all facilities were great, and an extra bonus that we could use them all even though we was only camping and no hook up! Couldn’t recommend this van enough! Service from Calico was superb! Thank you!

We have just returned from an amazing weekend away at Silverstone in ‘DANI’ the campervan. The van drives great, it’s clean and had everything we needed. Collection and return of the campervan was easy and flexible to times that suited myself. Calico Campers provide an excellent manual for all the items located with the van. Couldn’t recommend Calico Campers more and we will definitely be using again. Here’s to the next adventure.

We hired ‘ARCHIE’ for 5 days, our first trip in a campervan and really enjoyed the experience. Archie was fully equipped with all our needs and there was an opportunity to add equipment such as chairs and table for a small extra fee. The service and communication from Claire was excellent right from the start, especially the thorough handover of the vehicle. We will certainly be hiring again in the future.

Brilliant service from start to end with Calico Campers. The Camper ‘DANI’ was clean and well equipped to ensure we had a wonderful trip. We’re already planning our next adventure…

Had a great time taking the four berth camper up to Scotland. Had everything we needed and they were really attentive and helpful with any questions we had during our trip.
