VW Camper for Hire

Welcome to our 3rd blog of 2015 – to entice, encourage and engage you with a VW Camper for Hire!

Previously, we looked extensively at European holidaying options for our VW fleet – now, we’d like to focus on the good old British Isles, for probably the best staycation you’ll ever have!

Being based in Brighton, we love the South Coast with all its natural beauty and striking landmarks. From the breath taking South Downs to the soaring white cliffs of Beachy Head – it truly does contain some of England’s most stunning scenery. What’s more, it’s the sunniest place in mainland Britain! Yes – many of our beaches are pebbly, but who really enjoys messy sand in their sandwiches?!

VW Camper for Hire – Some of Sussex’s Best Bits …

Remote, wild and unspoilt, Climping is a natural haven on the built-up coast between Bognor Regis and Brighton. Pebbly at high tide, vast and sandy at low tide, it’s good for swimming and dog-walking. Be warned – naturists do frequent the sand dunes, parts of which are a nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The beach has moody charm with its weathered groynes and constantly changing skies.

Shaking off its dusty 70’s caravan-park image, Camber Sands has experienced a huge comeback, fuelled by fashion photography, music festivals and the opening of The Place, a boutique hotel and brasserie. With seven magnificent miles of sand and mountainous dunes plus its shallow seas – Camber is the perfect spot for families.

West Wittering is one of Britain’s best all-round beaches with good sand, excellent swimming and plenty of amenities. It’s popular with Frisbee-playing families – however, the sand dunes at the East Head nature reserve are a respite from the crowds on the main beach. The shallow lagoons and tidal pools make for warm waters and safe swimming.

What to do and see:

The striking De la Warr Pavillion, a 1935 Art Deco building, is alone worth a trip to Bexhill-on-Sea. Following an £8 million restoration in 2005, it is a cultural hot spot, with an art gallery, free exhibitions, concert hall, bar, restaurant and roof terrace.

The South Downs Way, an ancient 100-mile footpath and now cycle-path from Winchester to Eastbourne, takes in some spectacular coastal scenery, from the hills and wildflowers of Ditchling Beacon to the cliffs of Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. Often dubbed England’s prettiest town, Rye is the definition of chocolate box: half-timbered inns, narrow cobbled streets and a salty maritime air. Its mixture of Norman, Tudor and Georgian buildings is an architectural crash course.

Drusilla’s Park is a fascinating small zoo, specialising in animals of Lilliputian proportions and exotic origin, from monkeys to meerkats. Children can walk through Lemurland, or take a Thomas the Tank Engine ride through a llama paddock. Why not stay at the nearby simple and beautiful downland campsite in Alfriston perfect for exploring the Seven Sisters and popping out to a charming pub or tea place?
