Mike was easy to deal with & very helpful. We had a fun time travelling in the van- but it really wasn’t long enough. Would highly recommend dealing with these folk.

I booked their campervan through the Camplify website. After sending in my request (my introductory message was delightful) I received an email that said 'Great news Nicky has approved your booking!' I then finished the application, paid in full and was sent another email telling me to 'count down the days until my getaway starts'. About 45 minutes later I get another email saying my booking has been cancelled because 'Dates requested aren't suitable' and a message from Nicky saying her van isn't available, sorry. That's it. No explanation. When I asked how this could have happened, she became very defensive. When I said this seems like a lousy set up and added 'thanks for nothing', she launched personal insults at me and became hostile. After reading her response to the other negative review she has received, I am sure I will get more of the same.

Just home from a little two night adventure with my little ones in Yellowcraig. Bepe was such a dream and equipped with all the things we didn’t know we needed… 🌟 so warm and cosy and sleeping up in the pop top was magical. Booking process was so easy and Nicola could not have given a more comprehensive guide to Bepe. She was on hand throughout our whole trip making sure everything was going well. We will definitely book again… 🚐

Took Bepe down to the Lake District for a couple of nights. She has everything you would need for a wandering holiday around the country. Wee man absolutely loved sleeping in the pop-top. Nicky could not have been more welcoming and gave a great run through of the many features in Bepe. Only wish I'd paid more attention to the 'drive away' awning as it would have saved a bit of a walk on the first night :-D

We had a great 7 day trip doing the NC500, and we couldn't fault the van. It's a great condition, a brilliant drive and fairly simple to set up once parked up with everything you need. Our issue with the owners happened on the last day, when the owners text me at 09:15 to say my insurance was going to run out at 10am. The agreement was to return the van by 11am but they clearly wanted the van back early. After putting us into panic mode, we tried our best to get the van ready but we ran out of time. The owner said we need to purchase an extra day insurance which I agreed to purchase believing I had made an error, only to find out my insurance policy didn't run out at 10am, but 4pm. The owners admitted their mistake after reading "the wrong policy", but continued to push the responsibility onto us to try and make out it was our fault. They still wanted to van back early and continued to track me and call me threatening to charge me extra if I don't return the van back in time. We pulled over on the side of the road to continue tidying the van when the owner tracked us and met us despite not being ready to hand over the van. Perhaps if they want the van back by 10am they should stipulate in the contract instead of causing unnecessary arguments with their customers. This episode put a damper on the trip, and despite a great van, their unprofessional attitude means I cannot recommend them.

It's so sad when people like this take advantage of your good nature and simply abuse and damage your very expensive and cherished items. We're disgusted by them, and the lack of support from trip advisor in taking down a false review or covering the cost of the damage. These guests should not be allowed to ever hire campervans or anything else for this matter. The review they have left is false from the point onwards of "their issue with the owners". It is us the owners that have the issues with them not the other way round. They returned our beautiful van in the worst mess we have ever seen from guests, (it took over 8 hours just to clean the basic shell, not to mention all the extra items we included), and with a badly damaged cupboard door. With this being a top of the range and new conversion campervan, you can imagine my devastation and sadness. They admitted the damage on return and used an excuse of us rushing them to have the van back on time. A completely ridiculous and childish excuse, when the return time hadn't changed, and had always been the following morning at an arranged suitable time with both the guest and ourselves, we even allowed them slightly longer the following morning when they called us to say they would be running late, as we do with all guests, but explained that they had to contact their insurance company to make sure they were insured if they did return it late. There is no excuse in damaging someone’s property and leaving it in such a disgusting and terrible state, it has cost us £100's of pounds to have our beautiful van put back to the high standard that it was in. Guests like this spoil the campervan hire experience for all owners and fellow travelling guests as there must be trust in both directions when giving a 35’000-pound vehicle out on hire. Thankful after a very busy and full season of wonderful, appreciative, and very happy guests these were the only guests that we would not welcome back, and we would strongly advise all other campervan owners to stay clear, I wouldn't wish what we have gone through with this awful guest on anyone, their rude aggressive and quite scary behaviour will eventually bring to them what is due. While we have now raised our age limit of hire to 26 to avoid this happening again, we won't let this experience stop us offering fellow travellers our beautiful van to have a wonderful experience............

We are just home from an amazing 5 night break round the north coast of Scotland! Bepe the campervan is amazing, fully equipped with everything you need! Nicky & Mike are the nicest most helpful couple. They where always very quick to answer any questions or concerns and made the whole experience very easy. Will definitely book again in the future. Highly Recommend!

We really tested Bepe to his limits, 2 adults, 2 kids and a Labrador! It was great! The drive away awning makes life easier, allowing plenty of space to store the things you don't need in the van at night and a dry secure place for the dog and his crate too. Nicky and Mike provide everything you need and more. Fantastic week in the north of Scotland 🤩

What an amazing time we had in Bepe... This van really has it all, and all in super condition, from TV, Wi fi, Loo, and all essential, even super cosy bedding and blankets, not to mention the fire pit. All the little added extra's Nicky and Mike gave us made our trip truly really special. We've made memories to last a life time. Would highly recommend. We will be back and will defiantly recommend to all our friends. Photo's will follow soon
