Poldark set - motorhomes for film and tv production

We’re not name dropping, but…

You already know that The Motorhome Holiday Company supplies rental motorhomes for holidays throughout the South West, UK and into Europe, but are you aware of the dark side of our business? It’s not all about sunny smiles, holidays and road trips for us. Oh no. Sometimes we pull on our work clothes get down and dirty in world of film and TV.

It’s not common knowledge (we’ve signed NDAs and have to be careful what we say), but we’ve become the principal supplier of motorhomes and campervans to the film and TV industries in Bristol and the south west of England. And in the case of BBC’s Poldark, we got absolutely filthy! Have you ever tried driving a motorhome onto the rain-lashed Bodmin Moor? We have, and we can proudly say we’ve cleaned up the mud that came off the bottom of Aidan Turner’s boots.

It’s not just to locations that we supply motorhomes. We’ve become the regular supplier for production companies that need to hire a motorhome at The Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol. Our motorhomes are regularly used as green rooms and refuges for some of the biggest stars of British film and TV between takes and at the end of busy shooting days.

Naturally, we can’t spill the beans, but the productions shot at The Bottle Yard include Broadchurch, Sherlock Holmes, Wolf Hall, Public Enemies and The Crystal Maze. Oh, and you might just have heard the name Danny Boyle…

Not that we’re going to give anything away. We just thought you might want to know who else we rent motorhomes to when you’re not taking them away on holiday. We’re definitely not saying that you may have enjoyed a mug of tea in the same seat as Thomas Cromwell or Doctor Watson…


If you’re interested in hiring a motorhome for your own film and TV production or project, then don’t hesitate to get in touch!
