VW T2 bay campervan IoM
Beautiful VW T2 bay campervan seen at Fenella Beach in Peel in the Isle of man
We just came back from a week’s holiday in the Isle of Man. In a cottage not a campervan. However we did come across this fine example of a VW T2 Bay campervan on our wanderings around Peel. It’s a beautiful paint job. Sometimes we knock on the window for a chat but on this occasion the weather wasn’t particularly good and the folk inside seemed busy sorting out their lunch so we left them to it. Weather wasn’t great anyway!
Seeing the campervan did however inspire us to book a campsite for TT Week 2020 and bring our own over. In fact we booked three spaces with electric hookups for us and two other couples, one with a T25 and another with a motorhome. We plan on going in convoy from Lincoln and spending the week on the island for the TT Races.
If you’ve never been it’s a fantastic week with racing on every other day and the rest of the time being free to explore the island. Even the races don’t stop you from getting around although the circuit, which is over normal roads, is closed in the hour or two before each race.
Peel is not on the TT Course itself but is only two miles away from the nearest point and is a wonderful base. The campsite has all mod cons and is right next door to a lovely swimming pool. Also there is a great supermarket with loads of fresh food only a hundred metres or so down the road together with Peel’s half a dozen pubs and some great restaurants. You can even stroll into town and buy freshly smoked kippers for breakfast in the one remaining kipper factory.
Now obviously we will be using one of our campervans to go to the Isle of Man but the other one is currently available so if you fancy making the trip do get in touch. It might sound a bit to much like planning in advance with the races not until June 2020 but the person in charge of campsite bookings told me they were getting bookings for 2020 in 2018! Also Anne’s Vans began 2019 with over 20 nights bookings already in the book from last year.
You know it makes sense:) Where would you like to take a van?
Fenella Beach, far away in time…
Anne’s Vans is a VIntage VW hire business based in Lincoln. We are in easy reach if you live in the East Midlands and we often have hirers from the South of England who pick up a van on their way to the North and to Scotland.
