A motorhome holiday with the grandchildren

You know how much we love customer stories! So when Nikki, editor and owner of What’s on Bristol, not only wanted to take her grandchildren on a motorhome holiday, but then wanted to write an article afterwards, it’s safe to say we were chuffed!  

Here is Nikki’s experience of taking her grandchildren on a motorhome holiday

There is a real sense of adventure around travelling and camping, especially if you go with a pair of very excited 5 year old twin boys in a lovely big motorhome!

We collected our swanky 5-berth motorhome from the Motorhome Holiday Company, midday on a sunny Friday and set off for Dawlish in Devon. The boys thought the journey was amazing and the novelty of travelling in a motorhome staved off the usual moans of ‘are we there yet’. We chose the Adria Coral XL, a brilliant family motorhome capable of sleeping 5 comfortably that can be driven on a standard car licence. It features a huge lounge and great kitchen – plus the front cab seats rotate to form part of the lounge! Upon arrival in Dawlish we booked into a holiday camp and hooked up our motorhome to the onsite amenities (we do like camping but only with all mod cons).

The adventure continued for the boys. They were amazed that you could have a shower and toilet in the motorhome and loved the electric drop down double bed that appeared at the touch of a button. Naturally we had to let them sleep in it, while we slept in the bed below, listening to them giggling themselves to sleep.

Dawlish is a traditional seaside town, with a wonderful golden sandy beach on its doorstep. After breakfast in the motorhome and a swim in the holiday camp pool we set off to enjoy our day. The boys enjoyed watching locals fishing and we even visited a local theme park where the boys enjoyed some fun on fairground rides. Then a local pub for lunch, and the evening games began playing board games in our holiday home.

Great memories were made that weekend and the boys keep asking when we can do it again, they loved it and if you have never hired a holiday motorhome, just do it! your family will enjoy every moment and it will feel like an adventure from start to finish.

The motorhome was supplied by The Motorhome Holiday Company and collected from their HQ in Hewish, Bristol. A comprehensive handover is given by one of their experienced team and we must say the quality of customer care and service was brilliant! The vehicle was comprehensively equipped and presented beautifully.
