Campervantastic is a family run business that started in 2007 after myself (Steve 'The Campervan Guru') and my wife Kate bought our first VW California campervan and embarked on a 14-week advenure with our 2 and 3-year old boys. In fact, the whole Campervantastic team of highly skilled 'Adventure Consultants' have a wealth of experience of campervanning and touring across Europe and the UK. From half term dashes to France, sweltering beach temperatures above 46C in Greece to sub zero alpine ski conditions below -27C in Norway to free camping in the Latvian forests and Moroccan beaches, you name it we've done it. We have grown to become the UK's leasing specialist, understanding the needs and desires of campervan newbies and enthusiasts alike and we are recognised by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles for our passion and knowledge. We are a reliable and trustworthy choice for those looking to explore the open road. Read on below to find out how we got started or call us to talk through your upcoming adventure.
We are passionate about campervaning and provide an unrivalled serice to help you plan your perfect holiday and equip your campervan. You can come and visit us at our showroom and we'll give you a VIP tour of the VW California or Grand California and accessories. If you are looing to buy a campervan then we sell half our fleet every September and we can also offer 'try before you buy' packages including a consultation with myself.

"The Lumleys Big Adventure"
Adventure is in our blood, both Kate and I are experienced and seasoned travellers, we have backpacked, camped and travelled extensively across Europe, India and Africa. I have trekked across the mountains of Nepal and through the wilderness and glaciers of Alaska raising much needed funds for Sense the UK's Deafblind and Rubella Charity and have climbed Africa's highest mountain Kilimanjaro for Water Aid. The Campervantastic journey began in 2006 when I took full advantage of redundancy and turned this into an opportunity to buy our first VW California T4 campervan. What followed was an amazing 14-week European adventure through France, Italy and Geece (see pics below) that was to inspire Kate and I into starting a company hiring out modern factory built campervans. This amazing family adventure let us rediscover our love for Europe and sparked a new love - our very first campervan! To read the Volks World Camper Bus magazine feature, Family Way, click here.
Together with the assistance of our "Vantastic" crew we bring you a wealth of practical experience and an alternative way to travel, where you take control of when and where to go in the comfort of a well equipped campervan.
