Looking to get away for a few days in our wonderful county? Look no further... Retro Campers gives you the chance to hire a VW Campervan for your short break in Norfolk.

Soak up the sunshine on the glorious coastline or go exploring the best of Norfolk, Suffolk and beyond with freedom and style.

Catch a last minute offer here.



What is your name/role?

My name is Graham Bray. My wife (Victoria Bray) and I own and manage the business.





Where are you based?

Retro Campers Norfolk has a new base at West Raynham Business Park, near Fakenham.


 


What inspired you to start the business? 

We actually bought the business from the former owners when they emigrated to Australia. We had hired one of their campervans (“Penny Lane”) for our wedding anniversary in 2014 and loved it so much we actually landed up buying one of the campervans they had for sale. It was called “Boogie Nights”.

We have a great passion for the old classic VW camper vans themselves, but we also loved everything about the business, so when the former owners decided to sell and emigrate abroad, they approached us about buying the business. We jumped at the opportunity and the rest is history!    




When did the business start?

Retro Campers Norfolk was originally formed in 2011, Vicky and I bought the business in January 2020, just before the first lockdown!




What does the business offer?

Retro Campers Norfolk hire mainly classic VW campervans from the 1970s for short breaks and holidays in Norfolk and Suffolk. These immaculately restored, iconic campervans each have their own unique personality and come fully equipped with everything you need for a fully inclusive glamping adventure.

Retro Campers Norfolk also have one modern VW T6 camper van, which looks as retro as a modern van could ever be and offers the latest amenities such as heating and solar panels for off-grid power.
