Running a camper hire business is hard work and can be very stressful at times, but right now I wouldn't change it for the world. The suns shining, we're busy and have had some really lovely people venture out in the campers. Last week James took Peaches out for the weekend [...]

Father Christmas. Have you ever pondered on who’s behind the big white beard and what they’re really like? With so many ‘meet Santa in his grotto’ events up and down the country at this time of year, I’ve always wondered. Is Santa actually a grumpy old man, sick to death of [...]
We've just received some great news from the people that run the Wedding Industry Awards and are pleased to announce we have made it through to the Regional Finals for 2014. The awards are based on all the great feedback we've received over the last year from the many happy [...]

Iain and Abi have just returned from a lovely little short break, taking in some of the wonderful sites across Dorset and the Jurrasic coast in Mango.
