3 Belted seats 3 Adult berths
When you think about campervan hire, London might not immediately spring to mind as a place to find a completely bespoke, bohemian, family-friendly, spacious camper van. But Laurie Lee has all that and more! As soon as you step inside, you want to take off your shoes, light the wood burner, and curl up on the sofa with a good book. One of the best things about Laurie Lee is that because he is a larger van, he has fixed beds; one double bed and one single bed, as well as sofa seating for up to 5 people. His living space is separate to the cab space with a back-door entrance hidden behind a shuttered exterior. As you’d expect, there is also tonnes of storage space! There are cupboards over the door, under the sofas, under the beds, next to the beds, and in the kitchen! This veritable Tardis of a camper van really feels secret and private, because he is high off the ground, and his windows and porthole are high up too. If you’re looking for a peaceful, cosy home from home campervan – Laurie Lee is probably your guy!

Conversion Story: Laurie Lee was bought as an empty van because we had looked at buying something already converted and not managed to find anything that we liked. The main vision was to create a space that felt like home for myself and my daughter while we were travelling because we both loved the sense of home so much and wanted to spend time in new places without missing the stability and nurture and sense of hearth that we were leaving behind. He is until now the most special place that we have ever lived in. A childhood friend and skilled carpenter did the conversion at the end of my brothers garden, putting endless hours of work into the project at different stages, doing further work after the intial conversion and recently redoing the kitchen. Laurie Lee has different types of wood in him, hazel poles cut from the wood where I grew up, a beautiful siberian cedarwood table and a kitchen work surface made out of our old antique pine table. He used to also have some oak shelving, butr we had to make amendments due to weight! Laurie lee likes companionship, a warm hearth, family, a simple life, a nice view and bluebells.
