Stepping inside Bella is like stepping into an amazing living space that could have been hand carved by gnomes or fairies! This campervan hire Edinburgh is made from beautiful hand carved wood throughout including a fully equipped rustic kitchen and cute little book cabinet. Everything has been crafted with mostly reclaimed materials including the porthole window made from an old washing machine door and the handmade woodburning stove.
With a massive bed that converts into loads of sociable seating around a generously sized table, plus a handmade cot for your littlest traveller, Bella is as comfortable as any rabbit-hole or hobbit-home you’ll ever go into. It’s amazing being snug inside by the fire while the weather rages, as well as throwing open the doors on sunny mornings and breakfasting to the sound of birdsong.
Bella combines the space of a motorhome with the fun of a Quirky Camper, and we’d love you to experience her for yourself!

Conversion Story: The original Quirky Camper, Bella was once a courier van and then a gardener's work van before the founders of Quirky Campers, David and Lindsay, stripped her out, insulated her with sheep's wool and set about what sounds like a labour of love, carving the kitchenette, bed and cupboards.
In early 2020 her current owners brought Bella to Edinburgh and since then they have been introducing some new elements including sustainable cork flooring, chalk white eco paint, tiling, and handmade upholstery. She is ready now to start exploring the wilds of Scotland!
