2 Belted seats 2 Adult berths
Lara the Scandi Lady is quite possibly the coolest campervan conversion for hire in Bicester; fact. This extraordinary Land Rover Defender camper combines awesome design, super practical living set up and the most Instagram perfect looks imaginable! Lara is also only 45 mins by trains from London.
Lara has an L shaped seating area in the back of the van, beneath which is plenty of storage for bedding, clothing as well as the fridge which is hidden away. On the side wall is a series of cupboards - one has an exterior hatch we call ‘The Kitchen’ for easy access to cooking equipment. The remaining cupboards are perfect for easy access to your backpacks and any personal items. There is a box on the roof rack which stores 2 comfy camp chairs and a fold out table.
She isn’t short on high spec gadgets either. Lara has a Nebula projector, and the rear blind acts as a projector screen for movie nights in the van! Imagine snuggling up, parked up in an awesome off-grid wild camping wilderness, fresh coffee (or a beer) in hand, settling in for an incredible van life night experience – living the dream!
About the Campervan
Description of Beds:. Lara sleeps two people in the back by turning the storage seating into a double bed. Blankets are provided but due to Covid please bring your own bedding - a sheet and double quilt will be fine in summer, or sleeping bags in winter.
Description of Seating: Two belted seats in the front (including driver) with head rests and three further belted seats. Please note, this is a Landrover Defender - not a modern vehicle so it does not have air bags.
About the area: Lara lives in Bicester in a private development. Bicester is just 45 minutes by train from London Marylebone.
Parking: If you drive to collect Lara, you are welcome to leave your car in her allocated parking spot. If you come by train, it is a five minute taxi from either Bicester Village or Town railway station
Cooking Equipment: Lara is a glamping camper but with lots provided in her 'kitchen' hatch - there is a double gas stove that you can use to cook outside. Lara has everything you could need to cook up a feast, including: 2 traditional falcon enamel mugs, 2 enamel cups, 2 bowls, 2 enamel plates, cutlery for 2, chopping board, kettle, frying pan and two saucepans. There is a full set of cutlery, including sharp knife, spatula, serving spoons etc. Lara also comes with a Wacaco handpress portable espresso maker and some complimentary Grind compostable coffee pods so you can enjoy a good quality morning coffee overlooking stunning views. Lara comes with a folding washing up bowl which can be filled from the water tank. Lara also has a 30litre powered fridge to keep your eggs and bacon fresh.
Water Facilities: There is a 20litre water butt inside the vehicle which you can fill your Frontrunner portable shower bag and washing up bowl with.
Audio Equipment: Lara has a Marshall speaker built into the front cubby which can be removed so you can play music around the campfire. Please don’t take it out in the rain though. She also comes with a Nebula projector so you can enjoy movie nights either inside or outside the van.
Type of Heating: Lara is a cosy space so with two people’s body heat she warms up easily.
Conversion Story: Lara the Scandi Landy got her name due to her Lara Croft-esque body colour and her scandinavian inspired interior design. Landrovers are often converted into basic overlanding vehicles in order to camp out along the road less travelled - but we wanted to create a bespoke and unusual design with some home comforts. In the back there is an L shaped seating area beneath which is plenty of storage for bedding, clothing and the fridge which is hidden away. On the side wall is a series of cupboards - one has an exterior hatch we call ‘The Kitchen’ for easy access to cooking equipment. The remaining cupboards are perfect for easy access to your backpacks and any personal items. There is a Nebula projector and the rear blind acts as a projector screen for movie nights in the van. There is a box on the roof rack which stores 2 comfy camp chairs and a fold out table. Please store those in the roof box only as they may get muddy and dirty the camper interior if kept inside the van.
