A Land Rover Defender with a roof-top tent for overland adventures in Cornwall

The Land Rover Defender is a well-loved classic. So much so that it was the subject of a book by adventurer and TV personality, Ben Fogle, who called it “as quintessentially British as a plate of fish and chips” and claimed it as the “world’s favourite car”. Whether or not you agree with him, there’s no denying that this rugged 4x4 — favoured by farmers, safari guides and the British military — carries with it a whiff of adventure. If you fancy in on the action, then you could book yourself a holiday with Cornwall Defender Days, who’ll supply you with a super-cool black Landy topped with a roof-top tent for an overland adventure you’re not likely to forget.

It’s one of only a handful of UK companies offering similar experiences and none are quite the same. The specifications of the Defender Days' vehicles are tip-top — with no expense spared in the camping set-up either. You can expect a pop-up roof tent and awning with a comfy mattress, table, chairs and all the cooking kit you’ll need for your trip from the camping stove to the cups. Bedding and towels are included too so you barely need to pack. Though having said that, you won’t want to forget your swimming stuff.

You’ll have guessed from the name where Cornwall Defender Days is based, so days on the beach are pretty much guaranteed. But the UK’s most so-westerly county is not only a great place for a beachside camping holiday, it’s also perfectly suited to Defender driving. As Tom, the founder of Defender Days, puts it, you can have a “truly local” experience; driving down country lanes to hidden coves, to wild woodlands and across expansive moorlands. There are tons of highly-rated Cool Camping sites in this county and Tom has a few tips of his own he’ll be happy to share; great places to park up your car, pop up your tent and enjoy your Cornwall Defender Days.

Social Distancing Measures

We take COVID protocols incredibly seriously. Due to the nature of our business, we conduct all handovers of our vehicles and equipment in an outdoor environment. 100% of the admin work is done prior to arrival, so when guests meet us, we simply walk around the truck, explain the equipment (which usually takes about 10 minutes) and then they're off on their way.
