Campervan Hire Cumbria


Cumbria is a large county in the North West of England and is one of the UK’s best loved tourist destinations. The largest and most widespread industry throughout the county is tourism and millions of people flock to the area each year to visit the historical landmarks and beautiful landscapes. The most popular part of Cumbria is the Lake District National Park which regularly attracts over 15 million visitors each year from across the world. The Lake District is a vast area and hotel and B&B stay can often restrict how much of the beautiful landscapes can be seen during a holiday; this has led to many people choosing the alternative of campervan hire. Cumbria has many companies spread across the county that can provide campervans for holiday makers from all walks of life.

Lakeland Campers

Based in Kendal and within easy access of the M6, Lakeland Campers are an excellent choice of Lake District and Yorkshire Dales campervan hire.

Inside the van there is seatbelts for five people and suitable sleeping space for four people with an awning available as an optional extra for added room. Standard electrical equipment can be accommodated thanks to a separate leisure battery and hook-up kit which means, mobile phones and laptops can be charged and hairdryers can be used with draining the campervan battery. To make hire easy, Lakeland Campers are able to store a customer’s car safely in a secure garage or arrange for collection at Oxenholme train station or nearing Manchester and Liverpool airports.
