Glamping Yorkshire, County Durham, Cumbria and Northumberland
Welcome to Castle Coast Campers – the home of Glampervanning!
We offer vintage VW Campervan Holidays, Honeymoons, Naughty Weekends and General Times of Loveliness across Yorkshire, County Durham, Northumberland, Cumbria, The Lake District and the Scottish Borders.
Our beautifully restored original VW Campervans have been given makeovers other Campers can only dream about. Their Union Jack poptops were custom made by the last sail makers on the banks of the River Tyne and their curtain material was commissioned from fabric and clothing designer Marc Doyle, who even matched the colours to their paintwork! There are no other Campervans in the world quite like our Tilly and Miss Scarlett! Castle Coast Campers is a family run business based in the small village of Hart in the County Durham/North Yorkshire borders, ideally placed for starting your adventure – you get miles more smiles in a Castle Coast Campervan!
We designed our business with our young daughter in mind, so our vehicles are not the ‘standard’ specification campervans available elsewhere. As well as being beautifully restored classic VW Campervans, our Campervans are ‘family’ models – they have a double bed for 2 adults in the back, an enclosed bed for 2 children or 1 adult in the roof and an optional child (from age 3 to approx age 7) bed in the front. We have also upgraded our Campervans from their original 1970s specification so that they now have modern seat belts to all seats (making them safer and suitable for most makes of child seats), they are fully insulated with non-itch eco insulation, have automatic engine bay fire suppression systems fitted (as used in racing cars) as well as interior smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire blanket, fire extinguisher and full first aid kit. They are also kitted out with a twin screen DVD player, i-pod/smartphone friendly CD player and tuner and, of course, they also come fully equipped with all the camping equipment you might need!
Miss Scarlett is our classic early 1972 VW T2 Westfalia Campmobile Campervan, in immaculate two-tone Chianti Red and Pastel White; the top of the range model in the early 70’s. Having lived most of her life in America, she has been converted to right hand drive (so the steering wheel is on the correct side!) and seats four in comfort. She was fully restored in 2013-2014, had a full mechanical overhaul and engine rebuild in 2018 and has had modern safety and comfort upgrades to bring her up to the high standards required to become a Castle Coast Camper; and is fantastic fun to drive and a real head turner!
TILLY (short for Matilda)
Tilly is our classic late 1972 VW T2 Twin Slider Westfalia Campmobile Campervan, in a lovely two-tone Sea Green and Pastel White; the top of the range model in the early 70’s. An Australian Taxi in another life, she is right hand drive (so the steering wheel is on the correct side!) and seats five in comfort, retaining her original rare third front seat. She was fully restored in 2014, had a full mechanical overhaul, rewire and an engine rebuild in 2018 and has had modern safety and comfort upgrades to bring her up to the high standards required to become a Castle Coast Camper. Tilly is fantastic fun to drive and attracts attention wherever she goes!
