Campervan Hire

If you're looking for a campervan experience like no other then you've chosen the right place! Here at Brown Bird & Co we want you to experience campervan hire with a difference providing you with a 5 star luxury hotel on wheels for your road trip.

Blencathra and Catbells have been beautifully crafted to offer a luxurious escape with everything provided to help make your adventure memorable. Both campervans will allow you to be off grid thanks to ample solar generated electricity and starter battery charging systems. They also have top of the range heaters and insulation so winter adventures are not off limits. Catbells uniquely also offers an Avenay wood burning stove ideal for those cosy nights with a view. Just imagine immersing yourself in nature with all the comforts of home.    

Both Blencathra and Catbells are hand crafted and feature the signature build items that have been tried and tested including copper details and extensive use of live edge oak worktops and splashbacks. They are both beautifully built but highly functional which comes from the converters Jacqui and Laura living full time van life since 2018 and knowing what makes their vans different from the rest.  For those with a furry friend both campervans are suitably sized for 2 small dogs or 1 medium sized dog.

Our vans are available for collection from near Manchester making them perfect for Lake district campervan hire plus Snowdonia, Peak District, Yorkshire and even bonnie Scotland!

Brown Bird & Co Campervan hire also offer amazing extras you can request to make your road trip even more epic.

Finally, once you have booked a campervan trip with us we can send you extended area guides with exclusive park ups and tried and tested campsites that we know about that only get shared with our wonderful hirers.

Blencathra is a beautiful van! We had 3 nights in the lakes and will most definitely be booking her again! Lisa the owner was superb! Friendly, helpful and on hand to help with any queries we had.

From the booking right through Lisa has been an amazing host! Blencathra is a perfect home on wheels and I was sad to say goodbye lol. From the space to the comfy bed and lighting. The fact it's solar powered too i could spend the week off grid! Great drive too! Thank you so much! x

We had a fantastic time in Blencathra, the standard of cleanliness and fitout is 5 star. All the equipment was also excellent with great attention to detail. Lisa was a great host, very responsive and explained all the van equipment before we set off. We will be back!

We had a great long weekend in the Lakes in Blencathra. Lasts off grid really well, no need to plug in especially for such a short trip. Gorgeous interior and really comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed.

We were lucky enough to have enjoyed Blencathra for 2 weeks as we adventured across the UK and Ireland. She had everything we needed for our time which made it very comfortable. She was a great size and found it easy enough to drive and park. You can’t go past the awesome style of her interior, we just loved it!! Lisa was also amazing, the friendly face we were so happy to see when we had just flew from the other side of the world ☺️ (thank you again!!) love love loved our time with her and have already recommended to friends!

Amazing van and service. From first contact to finish, Lisa the owner, has been brilliant. Answering all queries and giving advice for trip. Van was taken from Mcr all the way to Fort William and back and was a dream to drive. Very comfortable inside, with loads of features. We managed 4 nights without needed any hookup or additional water (4 extra provided). Will definitely be booking again

Lisa was lovely and really informative, had a lovely trip out to the lake District then up to loch Lomond for the weekend. loved the van and couldn't think of anything to complain about. Would definitely hire again!

Aaron, May 2023

Absolutely loved the van - had everything you could possibly need for an off-grid camp! Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
