3 Belted seats 2 Adult berths
TOOT TOOT, make way for the new van on the block, an extraordinary 2 berth campervan located in the picturesque village of Kendal. Bespoke, unique and lovingly handcrafted, this off-grid romantic chateau on wheels, is the ideal choice for you and that special someone. Situated within the Lake District, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a backdrop for your journey of romance, will it be the never-ending countryside fields in the peaceful Yorkshire Dales close by, or sunrise dips surrounded by the rugged beauty and open wilderness of the Scottish highlands?
Spend your mornings tucking into your delicious breakfast in Toot’s dining area, which includes a large L shaped sofa and oak pull-out dining table and spend your evenings snuggled up with your favourite book in his cosy memory foam double bed. Solid oak worktops, 2 hob gas burners, and indoor refrigerator fridge with an in-built freezer makes up Toots versatile and adaptable kitchen space. Picture pulling up by the beach, opening up the side door and cooking up your favourite dish with an ocean view - now that’s what you call the ultimate date night!
The owner’s have made excellent use of the space, with a 2 tier design, so all your clothes, food and essentials can be neatly stored away in drawers and cupboards. Yet there's still plenty of room to store large items such as wellies, walking boots, camping table and chairs in the underfloor and garage storage areas. Measuring at 5.4 metres long Toots is small enough for a relaxed driving experience, yet big enough to provide you with comfortable living space.
Toots has everything you need to travel off-grid in style, including solar power, indoor bathroom and a diesel heater to keep you toasty and warm through the winter months. There is even an outdoor shower to wash off your dogs sandy paws after a romantic sunset stroll along the beach. Toots owner’s are also happy to include lots of optional extras at no extra cost, such as: a camping table and chairs, bedding, pillows, towels and even a ukulele to practice, so you might end your trip as an accomplished musician if you weren't already!

Conversion Story: Toots began life as a police incident response vehicle complete with blue flashing lights and a CB radio. This is the 3rd van Tom has converted, but the first to be hired out. Tom and Sally are a jack of all trades couple, both qualified teachers but also veteran hospitality workers, travellers, van-lifers and musicians amongst other things, as well as being professional van converters and full time parents.
As a keen DIYer Tom converted their first van before they moved to Spain in 2015, developing a love for van life and van conversions. Developing his skills for the second van, he converted a Mercedes Sprinter to a much more professional standard in 2019 with the intention of renting out, before being sold when baby Molly arrived. Toots marks their 3rd van, and although a recent conversion has already had many family adventures.
