We spent a cold, wet and very windy March weekend in Maisie, the blue campervan, yet still managed to have a fantastic time! Our two nieces (aged 8 and 5) thoroughly enjoyed the novelty factor of staying in a Campervan and there was plenty of sleeping space for the 4 of us in Maisie. Our fault for choosing a bad weather weekend (more fool us) so were thankful of the TV/DVD player to snuggle up to inside the van in our sleeping bags during the rainey evening. The campervans aren't for those wanting a quick tour of the Lake District, as the winding roads and hills aren't conducive to speed, but it was a nice change to 'step down a gear' from the normal hectic pace of life. We would certainly recommend a stay in a Campervan but probably best in less inclement weather so the kids can be playing outside whilst you're lifting up seats inside to find cooking utensils to cook with! Andrew, the owner, gave us a very comprehensive introduction to Maisie, including a short test drive and how to set the van up for the night, which was relatively straight forward. Driving Maisie was also a real experience, back to basics 1970's style, so don't expect slick gear changes or power steering, a patient manner is all thats required! Would definitely do it again in the summer months!
