About the Campervan
Description of Beds: Fern sleeps up to 3 people with sleeping accommodation comprising of one fixed double bed to the rear of the vehicle with a luxury foam mattress (please note the bed length measures 180cm & is therefore shorter than a conventional double bed) and one single bed which is made up by dropping the table in the seating area. The double bed measures 135cm x 180cm and the single bed measures 58cm x 182cm.
Description of Seating: There are 3 belted seats in the front (including driver). The 3 seats are all fitted with three point belts. 2 out of the 3 passenger seats are suitable for a child car seat using the belt. The living space accommodates 3 around the table with 2 fixed seats as well as a 3rd seat which pulls out when needed and tucks back away when not in use.
About the area: Fern is located in the sunny seaside town of Hastings. Hastings itself is a very well linked town with direct trains running to and from London regularly. There is plenty to see, do and eat right on your doorstep! Just a short drive away you will find the historic town of Rye with its quaint cobbled streets and gift shops galore. Beyond that you'll find Camber Sands, a beautiful stretch of coast line with white sandy beaches. If you carry along the east coast you will find the famous White Cliffs of Dover.
For those looking to venture further afield, the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle is just 1 hour on from Hastings and just a 30minute train ride on to France, the gateway to Europe where opportunities to explore are endless!

The second creation in a series by Project Yonder, Fern is a one of a kind off-grid camper, freshly converted and carefully designed for adventuring far and wide… A concept that was born through adventure itself, Project Yonder is the brainchild of Charlie & Grace, two individuals who chose to experience the wonders of the great outdoors through the comfort of their very own tiny home.
Travelling from the UK in search of the midnight sun, they reached the very tip of Norway before winding their way back down as far as the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. Following steep, tree lined roads to the highest mountain peaks before freewheeling back down dusty tracks, to once again feel the sand between their toes.
Experiences, memories & knowledge, which they believe must now be shared by all through the creation of beautiful one of a kind, adventure vehicles!
Designed with nature in mind, Fern features natural materials such as sustainably sourced wood, cork and natural linens alongside ‘Duck Green’ units, a coloured inspired by the deep green plumage of a mallard. She is very well equipped to adventure in style with a large shower, hot water, heating and a luxury foam mattress for maximum comfort on the road! Fern’s 80L fridge/ freezer will keep your beers ice cold on a hot summer's day whilst the heating, secluded sleeping area and projector screen will set you up for the perfect cosy winters night in!
