Super day out with Poppy!!

What an excellent day out!! We all miss Poppy so much! She is a beautiful retro camper, in immaculate condition. Enjoyed the surprise little food hamper, James is so kind and helpful, everything went as smoothly as possible, everyone had a wonderful day and we are looking forward to another outing with Poppy soon!! Thank you James

Perfect retro camping break

We had a superb 4 day break with Scarlet. James was so helpful and accommodating and we really appreciated the extra touches like the surprise food parcel. Scarlet, at 45 years, is in immaculate condition, very comfortable and had everything we needed for our camping trip. Such a fun drive too; we both fell in love with her.

Bucket list holiday – perfectly fulfilled

James – the owner could not have done more, we told him what kind of holiday we wanted and he filled in the blanks with suggested stopping off places.
Scarlet – the campervan, well we just fell in love with her. Reliable but still with character , eager to go wherever we wanted to go and so many people just smiling or wanting to talk to you about her – great fun.
The holiday – around the Gower and then to Tenby and back in a week of sunshine – could not have been better.

Excellent Campervan experience – would recommend to anyone!

Really great weekend driving Scarlet! Is a great experience especially with so many awesome beaches nearby! James is very, very helpful and the whole experience of hiring the van was incredibly straightforward and hassle-free. Thanks for a great time!

Awesome fun in a vintage classic

I booked ‘Scarlet’ at a charity event a few months ago and decided to set the date for our wedding anniversary.

It was one of those lucky breaks where I actually made a brilliant decision! The vehicle is a genuine classic Westfalia camper, with all the components. It was immaculately clean, great fun to drive, and even more fun to cook in!

Run by James, the company is very organised and efficient with excellent communication.

James could not have been more helpful or accommodating and even provided a special hamper for our special day. Even getting back later than intended was no issue, and we definitely intend hiring it again

Poppy our VW campervan

Columbus campervans we recommend highly. Absolutely brilliant service from James. What a nice guy! Helped us with everything we needed and showed us around the van. He really made us feel no pressure and like he was there to help no matter where we were in the road.
Poppy was a dream to drive and a very comfortable stay.
Thanks so much James. We’ll definitely be returning customers.

Stress free Bankholiday weekend

James was super helpful throughout the whole process, incredibly friendly and responsive to emails and texts and even picked us up from the station with the camper and dropped us off to a different station after, saving us loads of time. We were coming in from London for a bank holiday trip to Gower (which could be a nightmare with traffic) so to be able to get the train down and have James waiting with the camper for us was stress free.

The camper itself was well provisioned and really tidy. I would recommend both James and Scarlet to friends in the future.

Weekend away with Scarlet

James the owner provided great service and made sure that we were happy before we left for our weekend away. He gave us a full introductory session which was covered everything. We rented Scarlet for a long weekend. We didn’t venture far. The drive was smooth and comfortable. Scarlet is in tremendous condition and we really felt at home in her. The fridge isn’t a fridge but a coolbox but was totally adequate for our weekend needs. The weekend was totally retro and we loved every minute and the weather was great too. Its been a great introduction to the camper experienc
