Camper Trails - Autumn Walks

After a wet and very windy week, this last weekend the sun came out in our quiet corner of Snowdonia; to make the most of it we packed up our lovely sky blue campervan, Nell, and got out and about for a 2 day walking / roadtrip with our dogs, Tess and Archie. After a busy summer with the campers, I'm not quite as fit as I was so I decided that a couple of gentle coastal walks were in order, after all the Llŷn Peninsular has arguably the best coastline and scenery in Britain!

The walks we did were the Borth y Gest Beaches Walk and the Porthdinllaen Walk which both take in parts of the Wales Coast Path, for more details of the walk and some stunning photographs of this amazin coastline take a look at our Camper Trails page under Explore. VW Bay Nell

A day trip to Beaumaris and then on to Penmon Point

We took advantage of Bessie's day off from taking our guests on holiday, and had a family day trip to Anglesey. Our first stop was Beaumaris Castle, a World Heritage Site that was built as part of Edward the I's campaign to conquer North Wales. It has a perfect concentric design, is surrounded by a water moat, and has stunning views over the Menai straits and Snowdonia mountain range - it's just a shame Edward never got round to finishing it! We then took a tour around Beaumaris Gaol, built in the 1800s it is the only gaol to still have it's gruesome tread wheel insitu.

Our next stop, was Penmon Priory and its amazing dove cote, and then finally we drove down to Penmon Point for a picnic and a short walk along the pebbly beach and enjoyed the views of the lighthouse, Puffin Island, and Snowdonia's mountains.

Connie's CamperJam Adventure

The first weekend in July we took Connie on a trip to CamperJam, at Weston Park, near Telford. Jon had put the rear bumper back on her with a more suitable exhaust and tidied her up with some white paint on her front so she looked a little more presentable. We ended up parking next to a really great looking split that had been beautifully restored but made poor Con look a tad tired in comparison! We had a great day and saw some great campers. I found that I was getting a bit too old for 'some' fairground rides having scared myself on a Gravity Wheel with my 12 year old! The day was topped off nicely by watching England win their quarter final game against Sweden.

Nell's cast in a starring role on the Great Orme

We've had a bit of fun with Nell this July too. Nell has made her first debut as a film star with Snowdonia Classic Campers. The short film, set on the Great Orme near Llandudno, is about 'Adventure' and features my son, Jamie who loves to climb. We hope it will inspire you to go on an 'Adventure' too.

Spring time in Snowdonia

The month of May has been a busy month, all our retro VW girls have been on their travels exploring Snowdonia and the Llŷn Peninsular. We’ve welcomed guests from near and far, and Bessie has had her first wedding with Snowdonia Classic Campers.

All 3 girls carry their spare wheel proud, with a lovely matching wheel cover created by Kate from Totally Trimmed. Nell, has smart new upholstery, from Delilah’s VW Camper Furnishings, and we loved Poppy’s interior created by The CamperShak so much we thought a little extra cupboard space and some seating so everyone can sit around the table inside would just make her just perfect!

A new Campervan arriving soon

It’s just 6 weeks until we open for business with our first bookings in May, with this in mind Jon and I set to work trawling the internet for a potential 3rd classic VW campervan to join our 2 retro girls, Nell and Bessie.

The thing about looking for VW campervans, is that most are located a long way away in Cornwall, an area synonymous with both surf culture, and the VW vanlife but luck was with us and we found two potential gems closer to home, in the North West of England.

So, one Saturday after our youngest’s coaching session at Liverpool’s Climbing Hangar we travelled on to Lancashire to view a 1971 blue and white, early Bay. This camper was lovely, sound, and offered a lot of potential, and as we drove away to look at the 2nd campervan we were excited and tempted but all thoughts were blown away when we met Poppy.

Poppy is a retro stunner, in ‘poppy’ red and pastel white, she is a late 197? Westfalia Bay and interior is all colour coordinated to match. Poppy is 4-berth but can take 5 with her on holiday, as her rear seat will safely seat 3 with seat-belts for all. The rear seat is a full width, rock and roll bed and there is a cosy, 2nd double bed in her pop-up roof. Her interior is modern, with light oak cupboards with a 2 ring hob, grill, fridge and sink and that all important blue-tooth audio system. We think that The CamperShak who kitted her out have done a fantastic job and those of you who take Poppy on holiday will hopefully agree.

Poppy will be available to hire for you holidays in June.

New Wheel Covers

A new look this Easter for Nell and Bessie - we think it suits them and what better way to carry that essential spare tyre. Katie at Totally Trimmed did a great job with the covers, thank you.
