Meet Our Campervan, Murdoch
Murdoch is a classic 1973 Bay Window (T2) VW Campervan. He was recently fully restored with completely new upholstery and Interior. He's a proper classic VW camper with the comfort and fresh feel of a modern vehicle. Here's what you get when you hire our campervan:
  • Classic 1973 Volkswagon T2 Campervan fully refurbished.
  • Stunning Blue and Cream in Colour, he really looks the part!
  • Funky finishing touches, with Chrome wing mirrors, eyelids and VW Badge, and blue checkered flooring
  • Leisure Battery, hook up and cable
  • Sleeping The main bed is a ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ design, which makes transforming the rear bench seat into a comfy 6′ x 4′ double bed simple. The pop top also comfortably sleeps 2 children or 2 small adults.
  • Kitchen Our VW Camper has a two-burner gas hob supplied with gas bottle and a stainless steel sink with electric pump. Both have glass tops, allowing for plenty of usable worktop space. We also supply an waste water tank. There’s also 40 litre Waeco fridge with built in small compact freezer compartment. The campervan kitchen is also well stocked with crockery, cutlery, pans, whistling kettle and most importantly a bottle opener!
  • Electrics The campervan has and additional leisure battery which powers the fridge and water pump so they continue to work if you’re not at a campsite with electric hookup. If electric hookup is available, simply plug in the long cable supplied, and you can also make use of the normal 240v electric socket in the campervan.
  • Other stuff Murdoch has plenty of storage space for all your clothes and comes with all the things need for an enjoyable camping trip – Chairs, camping table, lights, portable Bluetooth Speaker/Radio and of course a pack of cards! Behind the bench seat is a large parcel shelf area which has plenty of room for storage while on the move.
    Also inclusive with your campervan rental
  • Fully Comprehensive Insurance (£500 fully refundable deposit required)
  • RAC breakdown cover
  • Complimentary hamper full of Yorkshire goodies for your journey
  • Parking for your own vehicle while you take Murdoch away

Are there any requirements to drive the campervan?

Yes, there's a few requirements of our Insurance provider:

  • are not under the age of 23 or over 75 years of age.
  • has held a full UK or EU licence for a minimum of two years.
  • has not had their licence suspended for any period within the last three years.
  • has not been involved in more than one fault incident within the last three years.
  • has no more than two convictions with a maximum of 3 points per conviction.
  • has not obtained a BA,DD or UT conviction.

Are Dogs Allowed in the campervan?

Yes of course! Well behaved 4 legged friends are welcome to join you on your break away at no extra charge.

Any Restrictions On where we can Drive?

Due to the age of Murdoch, we need to restrict his mileage to around 75 miles per day (average) so are unable to cater for long travel itineraries. If you're planning to do a long distance trip to somewhere like Scotland or Cornwall, we strongly recommend driving closer to your destination in a normal car and hire a van located in those regions.

How many people can fit in the campervan?

Murdoch has 4 seatbelts and it would be possible to install baby seats in the front passenger and one of the rear passenger seats (no isofix). For living space, its a squeeze with more than 2 adults, so we recommend adding the awning to give you some breathing space.

Absolutely incredible, the van drives like a dream and is in a really great location for the Yorlshire Dales. He has everything you’ll need inside... if you’re thinking of booking DO IT

Murdoch was great fun! Liz & Dave super responsive and great friendly hosts!


July 2019
Just returned from an amazing weekend away in Murdoch the campervan. The van was immaculate and had everything we needed for a great camping trip away. It was so much fun pootling around the country roads, attracting waves and light flashed from fellow camper drivers. A lovely weekend we'll remember for a long time.


July 2020
Staying in Murdoch was absolutely amazing! We had so much fun over the weekend exploring different places and taking in the great Yorkshire views! We will certainly be booking again to have some more time in the camper van as it was fantastic!
