Conversion Story: Chamonix began life as a Yodel delivery van before Laura & Jacqui bought her to convert. She was a perfect base van for them as she had been well looked after and serviced with low mileage. Laura & Jacqui converted her according to their model van build design which is very similar to the van they live full time in. It features their beautiful live edge work tops, copper features such as a hand built copper tap, copper lights and copper and oak shelves.
Laura and Jacqui know how important it is that we maximise the use of space with plenty of easy to use storage and equipment, whilst maintaining a space that feels open and easy to move around in without squeezing past each other or making up beds everyday. You can find out more about Jacqui and Laura on their instagram account @brownbirdandcompany and their website www.brownbirdandcompany.co.uk

Lovely well designed camper. Easy to use with great instructions. We had the van for 5 nights and travelled down to Surrey from the north east. Easy to drive with no issues. Would highly recommend.

    Thanks so much Alison - we’re glad you had a lovely time. Hopefully see you again in the future, Laura & Jacqui
    We had a fantastic time exploring Loch Lomand and surrounding area in Chamonix. It was fantastic from start to finish - the service we received from Laura and Jaqui was great, and the van itself was beautifully finished to an exceptional standard with everything we needed! Very clean and comfortable, often the envy on the campsite! Highly recommended and we would use again!

    Thanks so much for your lovely review Helen
    Chamonix was the perfect campervan for myself, my 2 kids and our dog on our first ever van trip. Our 10 days in Scotland were amazing thanks to the luxurious and well thought out van set up. It's been beautifully renovated, comfy, was easy to drive for a newbie and all the crockery and equipment was first class. It had everything we needed and all the things we didn't know we'd need! The information, instructions prior to the trip and support from Laura on What's app during the trip was top notch. Big thank you for allowing us to have an amazing trip. We now want to buy a van!

    Laura and Jacqui are lovely professionals with a keen eye for detail. They have thought of everything when it comes to kitting out a van and Chamonix was no exception. Everything is finished to the highest standard from the solar power to the fixtures and fittings. We absolutely loved our holiday and can’t wait to go again. Highly recommended +++++

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We are delighted you had such a lovely time and would welcome you back with open arms whenever you like 😊. Look forward to seeing you again in the future, Laura & Jacqui
    What a lovely time we had in the Lakes in Chamonix. The perfect way to travel the lake district, two nights of rain while we were cosy in the lovely fixed bed and days spent walking the hills and xo.ing back to comfort. Laura and Jacqui are so helpful explaining about the van and giving info even before you arrive to pick Chamonix up. Would definitely recommend and hopefully we can book again in the future.

    Jacqui and Laura have created a real thing of beauty in Chamonix, their passion and love is very clear in the little touches. We had a great time and we’re very lucky with the weather. All communications couldn’t be faulted prior and during and would highly recommend booking. Hope to see you all again soon and explore the north a bit more. Thanks again x

    Thanks so much for your lovely review - we are so delighted you had such a good time exploring Northumberland. We would love to see you back again for another adventure 😊 Laura & Jacqui x
    First time hiring a Campervan and we cannot recommend Brown Bird and Company enough. The van we hired, Chamonix, was beautiful and every minor detail was catered for. We couldn't have asked for a better first time experience off grid on the road. The van had everything you could think of and some things you wouldn't think of, making the experience all the more relaxing. It was amazing having our very own home on wheels and we took to it fast! So much so, we were sad to return the van to her owners! Definitely recommend. Pick up and drop off was effortless - although, we probably kept the owners talking longer than usual. They were super friendly and informative. Will be using again!

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review and also for being fabulous guests - it means the world to us. We loved chatting with you and look forward to seeing you again for your next adventure 🙌🗻
    Utterly fabulous van. Everything sorted for ease of use. Able to work on a laptop whilst kettle whistled on stove and waves crashed in the North Sea. Really cosy at night too and very comfortable mattress. Owners were super helpful and very patient with this campervan virgin who is now a complete campervan convert.

    Thanks so much for your lovely review Charlie and we are delighted you had such a lovely time away. Hopefully see you soon, Laura & Jacqui
    We loved everything about Chamonix, she was super cosy for our February 4-day break and we didnt need the heater on over night as she is so well insulated and no rocking in the wind like our own smaller van. She was fab!
