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!
