Hello! My name is Fatima and I live in the south east of England. I have always travelled a lot and have been very lucky to have experienced lots of different cultures. I love food and always seek out local delicacies! Started camping when I was little with my mum and dad and now have Nellie to roam around in. Haven't been abroad for a while due to Covid, like everyone else, but there are so many beautiful places to explore on our island, aren't there?
We had a great time in Nellie. There was loads of space for our equipment in the boot, and both the upper sleeping area and the rock and roll bed were a good size. Although the vehicle is not new, it's been maintained in very good condition internally, and the upholstery and matresses are comfortable and clean, and the floor and surfaces without marks.
The bowls, cutlery and general equipment were great - including an additional camping stove to go on the camping table. The chairs were good quality camping chairs and everything felt solid.
Nellie was very easy to drive - despite the size, parking was pretty straightforward - and the reversing sensor worked properly. On the motorway, everything was comfortable and reasonably quiet cruising at 70mph.
Fatima was excellent at communicating and was very helpful where we needed to flex our arrangements slightly. Check out and check in was straightforward and methodical. We loved the little touches she put in Nellie before we left, and even gave me a lift to the centre of Crawley at the end of the hire.
Overall, we were very happy with hiring Nellie from Fatima. The extra space on top of a standard Transporter camper van was very handy indeed, and the bed was very comfortable. Next time we want to hire a camper, we will definitely check if Nellie is available first!
This couldn't have gone better! Everything was catered for, to the smallest detail. There's an excellent space at the back of the camper which I've never seen in another camper. It allows you to keep your bags and anything else away from the sleeping area which is something I will look for in future hires. Fatima was extremely helpful and we had a a comprehensive run down of all the fixtures and fittings. We didn't have an electrical hook up, however the leisure battery coped really well. Amazingly there's a solar panel which charges the battery also (as well as directly from the engine when it's running). you could definitely go off grid in Nellie! the beds were comfy and my daughter made a little den in the upper bed. The awning was also really good, it was huge, so you can extend your living space if you wanted, put up some lights and make a really nice area. Once we were settled, we turned the front seats round and made a real home from home. It's long wheel base van with a high top, however I had no issues driving it what so ever, it felt and drove like a slightly longer car, it didn't feel heavy or sluggish. I would thoroughly reommend this hire, just not when I want it.
We loved our trip using Fatima's Campervan, Nellie. We had never hire a campervan before and Fatima answered all our questions, gave great advice and provided everything we would need. Including chairs, a table, cutlery, crockery, lamp, cards etc. The van is very easy to use and drive, we had no problems and would love to hire again.
Our fellow campers were jealous and couldn't believe the amount of space. The clever layout of this van is a huge plus. And the solar panels were great. Highly recommend.
