PETE was brilliant, really great at responding to questions on e-mail & phone. The motorhome (Barney) was great. They were really flexible in the collection and return of Barney, they spent all the time needed to explain the home to us .The home was really clean, smelt lovely. And had everything you could need.He was really supportive throughout our trip, offering advice whenever needed, and even offered to come meet us when we had an issue.Great company, would highly recommend, and we look forward to booking again.

Had a great holiday and Peter explained everything to us before we left.Slight issue arose and Peter was more than fair with us regarding what had happened.Would recommend to anybody and use them again in the future.

We have just finished hiring 3 out of 4 of Pete's vans.We are a group of 9 friends who follow Wales home and away and due to Covid had our trips to Azerbaijan and Rome cancelled. We instead decided on a tour of Wales in campervans in hope of repeating our trip to France in 2016.We found this company online, and from start to finish Pete was absolutely fantastic to deal with.We had previously been stung in 2016 with another company who took our £1250 deposit off us for a rubber seal breaking on a window we had never opened, so as you can imagine we were overly cautious on this trip.Unfortunately however, accidents do happen and I unfortunately reversed one of the vans into a small fence when trying to park, thus damaging the bumper. Pete had said if anything happened to let him know straight away. I was expecting the worst but Pete was unbelievably understanding and helpful with the situation advising how to secure the bumper for the rest of the trip.On our journey home one of my friends accidentally broke one of the head rests on their van, panic set it once again. I messaged Pete and once again he was very understanding and helpful with the situation. When we got back he took a look at both bits of damage, explained the headrest was an easy fix and he wouldn't be charging us and that he would try to sort the bumper for as cheap as he could. He called me later that day to say he had found one on ebay and would fit it himself for nothing. We were over the moon as we were expecting a huge bill. He took the small amount out of our deposit and the rest was sent back to us.The vans themselves are also a step up in comparison to other companies we have used, plates, mugs, cutlery and cleaning equipment are all provided and when we first arrived at Petes all the vans were immaculate.The 4 berth van in particular is out of this world with the white leather furnishings and dark oak finish.Pete and his wife are genuine people running an amazing business that you can see they have a passion for.I would absolutely one hundred percent recommend Hire a Hymer to anyone looking to rent a campervan.There's not many genuine people left in the world but Pete is one of them.Enjoy the beers we left Pete, they're deserved mate and apologies once again for the work we caused you!

I would say Pete is the best option for motorhome hire there is. Absolute lovely camper, great guidance and instructions and at the end of the phone if there was any issues.Slight issue arose and Pete was more than fair with us regarding what had happened.Would recommend to anybody and will definitely be returning

Hired twice from these guys, Peter is a legend, extremely helpful on both occasions. The vans are brilliant and well prepared, coming with everything you need for a fantastic trip. Rock solid and reliable.Have recommend to friends and family and would certainly use again in the future.The vans have plenty of character and are great fun.Very comfortable, providing a great night's sleep and more than capable on the road.Your given a full run down of the vans on pick up and Peter is more than happy to answer questions on the phone if you need during your travels.We we're given a free upgrade as one of the two vans we booked was involved in an accident and although just repaired Peter wanted to double check everything before renting it out.Absolute brilliant service, these guys go above and beyond. Many thanks for a great trip and many brilliant memories.

No more cold camping!

May 26, 2013

I believe that the ‘camping under a tent thing’ is well and truly gone with my family as we had such a fantastic time in Bart. It was great to have the experience of being in a field but the knowledge of a dry bed and heating at the end of the day was brilliant. As Bart is an automatic he is easy and light to handle, even being left hand drive is no real problem. Great weekend and looking forward to taking him out again.


Hymer in the peaks

May 25, 2013

We had a wonderful time in the peak national park, camping on a isolated farm on top of the world with views to dream of. And the beauty about the hymer is that you can lay in bed and dream right out of the panoramic front window. The shower is also large enough to really be used and we had plenty water even after camping in the wild without fresh water and electricity. Amazingly the narrow roads were not a problem, and the hymer is small enough to park nearly anywhere. We are now planning our next venture to the continent. What a wonderful way to get around


Weekend in Wales

May 25, 2013

I wasn’t too sure what to expect as I pulled out of the farm driveway in my old classic Hymer and started heading to Wales ,but it wasnt long for my love affair with Selma to kick in .What a wonderfully classic motorhome ,she was great to drive ,left hand drive automatic ,no problem at all ,big great steering wheel and handled superb.When I was pitched up on the camp site she became a home from home with all the facilities you could need for a weekend or weeks away . I’ve booked Ralph for a weekend in July ,and can’t wait to get away again in a classic,thanks to Peter


Fabulous time!

May 20, 2013

This was our first time in a motorhome, and with 3 children in tow, we weren’t quite sure how it would go. We needn’t have worried, everything about the whole holiday from booking to return was seamless. John and Peter explained everything at collection so we felt confident to hit the road. First stop – our driveway! The kids were so excited upon Maggie’s arrival and it was too late to go away on our first night, so they decided to set up home on the drive. We hooked up and after 5 minutes of having the gas fire on, the van was cosy and warm and the kids had a good night’s sleep. On Sunday off we drove to Peterchurch in Herefordshire, Maggie was a solid drive and my hubby soon got used to the gears and left hand drive. The campsite at Poston Mills was beautiful and we enjoyed setting up the awning and sitting out in some (Autumnal) sunshine! We visited nearby Hay-on-Way enjoying the many bookshops, and picked up some local produce to cook that night in Maggie. The 3 ring gas hob allows for easy cooking and I was able to make a family meal most nights (and wash up afterwards!). The fridge and small freezer are also really handy, and we were able to store a good selection of food and drinks. On Wednesday we went off to Cardiff staying at Tregedar House Caravan Site on the way. I could go on and on – we had a fabulous time!

A great trip to UK

May 18, 2013

We can not speak highly enough of our experiences when hiring a vintage campervan from Peter James at HireAHymer. The idea of hiring a vintage camper had not occurred to us until we happened across his excellent website, so we contacted Peter to confirm availability of one of the larger campers. Peter responded quickly to our emails and queries, and made the whole experience very pleasurable. He even came and collected us from the train station in Milton Keynes, before giving us a very thorough familiarisation tour of Barney. When we had a fridge failure, his brother John even offered to bring a portable replacement to us near Torquay. We have no reservation in recommending HireAHymer to other New Zealand visitors.


Loved it!

May 18, 2013

We hired Bart for our first family trip in a camper van to go on our Summer holidays to France. We were attracted by the novelty, price and the unlimited mileage but didn’t really have any idea how we and are kids would adapt but adapt we did. We had a blast meandering all over France. We thought we would be nervous wrecks but came back fully relaxed and refreshed. Loved it!! The company were fantastic.


Barney at the races

May 17, 2013

Collected Barney 12th April for a weekend. My husband does Club motor racing and as Barney has a tow bar, he was ideal to attach the race car and trailer to. It was also my sisters 50th birthday, so a good weekend planned. Sitting and driving on the wrong side of the vehicle, we soon got used to, as did we the upside down gears!. Towed very well, even with a car and trailer that weighs 1600kg, we still achieved 25 miles to the gallon. Very comfortable, well equipped, created a lot of interest at the race track, and did have to conduct a few guided tours, people could not believe how much room there was inside. Would recommend to anyone and Peter was so helpful. Thank you so much. Otto is booked for a trip to Belguim in June, for my husband to race at Spa. P.S. Weekend finished perfectly, as my husband won his class and we bought home another trophy.


A great adventure

May 16, 2013

We hired Lisa for a week over Christmas and we had a fabulous time. We drove around the south west of England staying in camp sites or pulling up where ever we felt like. As a first time van driver, Lena felt it was really easy to accustom to and grew to prefer driving Lisa over a car! The weather wasn’t always great on the trip and it was amazing having all that space in the van to hang out in and listen to the wild rain and winds. We would like to thank Peter for being so helpful, good humored and available to give us advice when ever we needed it. We are already talking about having another hymer trip with Hireahymer soon, could not recommend enough.


Lovely holiday

May 7, 2013

We had a good two weeks in the motorhome with our two children. We went down to cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed ourselfs walking around and going down to the beach. The hymer was plenty big enough and John and Pete were very friendly and helpful on picking up and dropping off. We had a good holiday and hopefully we can do this again.
