Here’s your chance to get behind the wheel of your very own Volkswagen and experience van life to the full! Parklife Campers’ modern VW California Oceans are contemporary classics; kitted-out and as comfortable as they come with all the mod cons you could wish for. They can provide an easy drive, a sound night’s sleep, all the adventure you want – along with envious looks from other campers. These two-tone sparkly cyan and white campervans are as handsome as they are practical. They are big enough for a family of four. One of the vans is more than happy to take your four pawed friends!
The family behind Parklife Campers are enthusiastic VW owners who’ve been loving van life for years. They’re likely to be almost as excited about your adventure as you will be. You pick up your hire from their base near Milton Keynes; a handy middle-of-the-country location. The Cotswolds and The Chilterns are not far away but in vans like these anywhere is a good destination.

The Owner Says
Hi there! We are Ali, Katie, Euan and Jude - Parklife Campers! Family explorers, adventurers, mischief makers, smile and memory creators and chaos co-ordinators! We have always been passionate about outdoor sports, travel and adventure, and met having completed a number of winter seasons in Europe. We love to play outside - you're never too old!
Our first journey in a campervan came in April 2010 when a planned trip to Thailand was cancelled due to the volcanic ash cloud from Iceland. We’ll never forget feeling really organised and excited, packed ready to go, with a new summer wardrobe and travel guides at the ready, and within 24 hours we were unpacking and getting our heads around all flights being grounded. A familiar feeling for many in 2020 following lockdown.
We quickly changed direction and embarked on a free-styling trip through France in a T2 Bus called Bali, with no schedule and no fixed itinerary, simply the open road, a few Cool Camping books and an Ipad. It was April, and we weren't too sure what clothes to take, so by then the methodical packing went out the window, with all the other best laid plans and we took the bare minimum. Chucking in the bikinis was wishful thinking, but how wrong we were! We followed a glorious heat wave all around the Dordogne. They say life is what happens when you are busy making plans!
Over the years, it has been an aspiration to own a number of vans and share the experience with likeminded people looking for alternative ways to holiday. That dream is now a reality with Parklife Campers. We don’t have a map, just pure self-navigation and determination. We have two brand new shiny T6’1 California Oceans ready for your Parklife adventure, these are very highly spec’d and fully kitted out ready for your own memory making!
Break the norm, go your own way and share our journey. The road ahead is open, and often, it’s not the journey or destination it is the company….
