“We had a fabulous time! Fell in love with Jemima!! Very friendly owners, who were fantastic to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. We can't wait to take Jemima on another trip. Loved the 'glawning'! The fire was the finishing touch!! It's a must.” Carol, Graham & Darcey, Bramhope, Leeds

“My partner and I hired Jemima for a day and a night and travelled around the Ribble Valley, Lancashire a la Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan (The Trip). Beautiful scenery, lovely food, a fun way to get from A to B and a great resting place at the end of a busy day. Jemima is in excellent condition and comes with everything you need. We got lots of waves and Sarah was very helpful and accommodating to a NZ driver with only a short amount of time in the area.” Kelly, Wellington, New Zealand

“We had the best time, it was an anniversary surprise and from the moment she saw Jemima we never stopped smiling! Quirky, simple living with some mod cons - DVD and we took our coffee machine! Everyone loved Jemima and so did we! Xx” David & Katie - Ripon

“It's always been a 'bucket list' item to travel in a VW camper van. Our family enjoyed the experience and will have fond memories of our weekend away.” Leslie, Harrogate, UK

“Our holiday with Jemima was a blast from start to finish. Despite the rain, her personality shone through and made us, and everybody she met, smile. The service from Retro Runaways was impeccable which led to me and my son having one of the best holidays in recent years. Thanks John & Jack, Harrogate”

“Thanks for your care of us both in preparation for and during our holiday. We had a great adventure and memorable time.” The Triffitts' from Devizes

“We really enjoyed dealing with retro runaways, they were friendly, helpful and made us feel at ease when we arrived to pick up Babs! Would really recommend them to anyone.” Zoe and Emily York

“Babs was just fantastic and the service provided by her mum Sarah was just as good. A long weekend, in perfect weather, touring Durham and Northumberland could not have been better with the family, dog and Babs. Babs just slows the world down...... great! Loved her. Fully recommend you try it.” Regards, Graham

“It was our first time at Glastonbury and Babs was very much a part of the whole fantastic experience!” Paul and Janet – Manchester
