Description

Meet Blue Belle... She is a beautifully restored and equipped 1974 VW Bay window campervan. She is a classy vintage girl who gives a real 70's driving experience. Slide back her side door to reveal a clean and modern interior comprising of a ¾ rock and roll bed, two ring gas hob, sink, fridge and a propex heater for those chillier nights, Blue Belle is far from an old girl inside! There is ample head room provided by the pop-top roof which allows access to the two small bunk beds, these are more suited to Blue Belle's younger guests. Both driver and passenger can travel in comfort and safety with all seats featuring 3 point seatbelts as standard. Blue Belle's maximum seating capacity is 4 persons. There is a foldaway away buddy seat which can be used for dining or sitting whilst cooking or socialising. An additional 12 volt leisure battery provides power for lighting, USB charge ports, radio/CD player and the reversing camera. Blue Belle has a 240v hook up lead, essential for her visits to campsites! Internal power is provided by standard 3 pin (240v) sockets, handy for a small appliance such as a hair dryer. With her stylish retro roof rack, Blue Belle looks the part loaded with camping gear. A cargo net and bungee cords are supplied to hold your things safely in place, freeing up space inside the van. Blue Belle lives just 10 minutes from the M6 (jct 13 or 14). Ideally located near the A5 and M54 allowing direct access to the beautiful mountains of Wales, a Northern adventure or a visit to the cheery seaside towns in the West. If you want to "travel less and camp more" then why not stay local? Blue Belle lives within the rolling countryside of Cannock Chase an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the stunning Peak District is just a short 35 miles away. Blue Belle is keen for any adventure, she has a 1600 air cooled engine and manual steering which gives you an authentic driving experience. If you don't have strong arm muscles now you certainly will have by the time you return! With a top speed of around 50mph, Blue Belle is very much "Snail pace, not Rat race" Imagine yourselves cruising along at a relaxed pace, with time to take in the scenery. Remember to give the other vintage VW's a wave as you glide by! So, why not step back in time and enjoy a classy getaway with Blue Belle. Camping package available , Drive away awning, camping table and chairs, portaloo. Ask for details
