Hi there, welcome to Sweet Campers and our lovely camper van Olive.

We offer you vw campervan hire in the North East of England. Being based in Darlington, we are the perfect base for the start of any adventure.

How would you like to step back in time and hire our stunning 1979 classic vw camper van, Olive?

Drive her yourself to take in the sights of our beautiful country, especially the North East coast, Yorkshire Dales, The Lakes and the Scottish Borders all within close proximity.

Price includes unlimited mileage within the UK, fully comprehensive insurance, and full UK breakdown cover.

We have taken great care and pride in bringing you our fantastically refurbished vintage vw campervan, with everything you want to make your trip pleasurable.

She sleeps 4 comfortably (extending to 6 when you hire our driveaway awning).

Olive has a built in twin hob, sink and electric cool box. Cooking equipment is supplied as standard, plus a little welcome pack to set you on your way.

**NEW** Get special member only rates at all Camping and Caravanning Club sites by using our special Privilege Scheme Membership, exclusive to Olive.

We have a passion for old vw campervans and a love of sweets, so we have combined the two to bring you a taste tingling retro Sweet Shop on wheels. We are certain that we will bring something exciting and refreshing to your event, whether it be a Wedding, Festival, Corporate Event or even just a Party.
