We stayed in Zig for a week, visiting various sites in the Peak District. Was our first time both campervanning and to that area, would happily say we’d do it again! Robin & Sophie were brilliant, everything felt very organised but totally relaxed. Pick-up and drop-off were a breeze, and we were shown how everything worked before being given some time to familiarise ourselves. The van itself is complete luxury and had everything we could need plus more, plus it’s a lot easier to drive than we anticipated. The solar on the roof keeping everything charged (including the fridge) was a revelation, we didn’t need to connect to mains power at all! Overall would 100% recommend Zig to seasoned and first-time vanners, we had a wonderful time. Thanks again to Robin & Sophie and all the best with your future adventures, from Tom & Aimee.
