Extra items for your Campervan trip

Your Campervan is supplied with everything from 2 bottles of camping gaz down to washing up liquid, string and a corkscrew. We can also provide you with the following goodies:

Cycle Hire
We can arrange for Devon Cycle Hire to deliver their bikes to our workshop, so your bikes are on your van’s cycle rack when you arrive (Devon Cycle Hire charge for delivery). Or alternatively you can visit them after collecting your van (their workshop is about 2 miles from us). Visit to have a look at what they offer and book your bikes

Child Cab Bunk (VW Vans)
We can install a canvas hammock in your VW Campervan which gives you an extra bed! It hangs over the driver and front passenger seats and is suitable for a (sensible) child between the ages of 3 and 7. The cost is £12.50 per hire. To see a photo of the child cab bunk click here. Just add child cab bunk to your extras list when you make your booking.

We can supply you with campbeds at no extra cost. You never know when you may want to escape if someone in your van talks in their sleep! Just add campbeds to your extras list and you will be able to use them inside your awning.

Awnings and Increasing your Accommodation
We supply free-standing awnings to hire for £25 each, which attach to your VW Campervan and which provide extra storage and living space. They also ensure you keep your favourite pitch at the campsite. We can also supply, at no charge, an inner tent which acts as a bedroom.

Sleeping Bags - £25 each
The Yellowstone Sleepwell 300 is a three season extra wide sleeping bag measuring 210cm x 100cm. Cosy for sleeping and compact for storing, it is the perfect solution to voluminous bedding! Just add one via your booking online. Take a look at a picture of one here

Double Bedding Pack - £25 each
We can supply a double bedding pack (to be returned at the end of the hire) which includes two pillows, a duvet and sheet. Useful if you are packing light or using public transport.

Fast Pitch Tent - £25 each
The Yellowstone Fast Pitch tent packs down into a tiny bag and can be useful for extra storage at your campsite or accommodating a teenager who needs her own space! Take a look at a picture of one here

Child Booster Seats
We can supply child booster seats free of charge. Responsibility lies with you to ensure your children are using the appropriate child car seats/booster seats and seat belts at all times in the van. Read the UK guidelines here.

European Hire
This applies to adventures in our beautiful new VW California Campervan only. If you are planning an escape to somewhere hot and sunny or a snowy winter skiing break then you will need the extra insurance and roadside cover included in this option. We will also pop in all other items such as warning triangle and high visibility vest that are a legal requirement on the continent so that you can relax in the knowledge that you are fully covered. This European Hire Insurance costs £15 per day and can be selected (per day) on the extras list, via your online reservation.

Getting you to Okehampton
For an extra charge we can arrange for a local taxi to collect you from either Exeter Airport or Exeter Train or Bus Station. If you would like to be collected from somewhere else, please contact us and we will see what we can do.

Bespoke Campervan Cookies
We have recently discovered this fabulous bakery in Sheffield. They can make bespoke boxes of campervan cookies: perfect to accompany a surprise hire! Visit their website to order a box and we will make sure they are in your campervan when you arrive!

Yay Retro - Glorious Vintage Accessories for your campervan
If you are keen to imerse yourselves in the 1960s/70s you must check out this company! Fabulous retro kitchen ware and lots more besides. Just love some of those crocheted blankets and cushions - I could spend too much time on this website...

Saturday/ Sunday or Out-of-Hours Collection
If you can't reach us by the last collection time of 4pm or you would prefer to collect on Saturday or Sunday, please get in touch to see if we can arrange for a member of staff to be here to meet you. Please note this £35 fee is in addition to the agreed hire charge and allows you to collect a campervan within the timings of one of our standard hire periods (Weekend Break, Midweek Break or Week).

If you would like more information on any of the above extras, please contact Zoe who will be pleased to hear from you.
