About Us

Hello, we are Brown Bird Campervan Hire which was set up by Laura & Jacqui from Brown Bird and Company. They run a succesfull campervan conversion business, as their business grew they decided to hand over the reins of their campervan hire business which I Lisa am delighted to own. I own two campervans by Brown Bird, a Medium Wheel Base Sprinter called Blencathra and a Long Wheel Base Sprinter called Catbells. These campers have been handcrafted based on their years of full time van living. They use their experience of living in campervans to create beautiful and highly functional luxury campervans that hirers can go off and have some fabulous adventures in.

They know how important it is that you maximise the use of space with plenty of easy to use storage and equipment, whilst maintaining a space that feels open and easy to move around in without squeezing past each other or making up beds everyday. Blencathra has been built using their signature Scafell build design and Catbells has been built on their Nevis signature design. 

I now fully run Brown Bird and Company Campervan Hire I am based just north of Manchester. This location is perfect for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, North Wales and Snowdonia and is in the perfect spot to collect en route to explore beautiful Scotland. 


Lisa - Owner of Brown Bird Campervan Hire 

As a retired woman who spent nearly three decades in social housing, I've always found travel an escape and a means to balance my life.  With my late husband we travelled extensively and once single I decided to follow through on our dream and buy the campervan we always dreamt of and some divine intervention helped me find Brown Bird and Co.  I am lucky to say I was there first customer buying Blencathra and my family, friends and I have had lots of adventures with her. In retirement I also found I had lots of time to fill and grandchildren to mind so decided to allow others to share the chance to have adventures with Blencathra and I love meeting people and even more so hearing what an amazing time they have had when they return.

So it's Brown Bird and Co's incredible creativity that led me to buy Catbells as I knew as soon as I saw the design I had to have one and she is beautiful.  
With both vans available to hire I know I am in the envious position doing what I love with the best bespoke campervan builds available, meeting like minded people and being able to use them to make special memories.
