Your Defender Camping Staycation

Yorkshire Vehicle Hire helps you bring out your inner adventurer. They rent fully equipped Land Rover Defenders offering you the chance to experience this unique Yorkshire Defender Camping Staycation.

They provide you with a straight out of the box toolkit (vehicle and gear) which includes:

  • the how to get there (vehicle)
  • the accommodation (rooftop tent)
  • the equipment (camping gear): gas cooker, gas bottle, table & chairs, kitchen utensils/picnic set, and a cool box.

Their vehicles come with all the rugged charm you would expect from a Land Rover Defender.

What Makes Defender Camping Unique?

The concept was born from a passion for Yorkshire, Land Rovers, and adventure.  They saw a gap in the market for unique experiences in what we think are iconic trucks.

If you have never had the chance to drive such a unique British icon; you will have never experienced the character & quirks that all Defenders come with. Both Defenders have their own names & personality – Bruce – Defender 110 & Milly – Defender 90


You’ll find everything – including the kitchen sink – in the boot! Everything from cutlery and crockery, to a Safari Chef stove, table and chairs, cleaning equipment and proper Yorkshire treats to get the weekend off to a flyer.

A 120-hour cool box, side awning and cosy blankets complete the perfect set-up as the sun sets over the Vale of Pickering and you settle in for an evening of Defender-style stargazing.

The side awning pulls out with ease, so there’s no need to pack it away when retiring up the ladders to your cosy, rooftop cabin. Venturing out for the day is no problem – simply pack everything back into the storage containers and you’re ready to hit the road after a BBQ breakfast.

What’s Around?

As the name suggests, at YVH they know a thing or two about good old Yorkshire too, so recommendations on where to stay, eat and explore will go a long way.

They are based at the foot of the North York Moors, a truly beautiful & untouched part of the UK. A short drive away are the stunning Yorkshire Dales, then over to the Lake District, Northumberland and beyond, there are plenty of big, beautiful open spaces to explore, just a stone’s throw from YVH HQ

Kids And Pets

Children are always welcome to join in the Defender Camping. All pop-up tents sleep 2 people, so you would either need to bring a ground tent also or add a second vehicle!

Dogs are welcome to come along on the adventure. They provide a quilted backseat carrier for the dogs to travel in style. Unfortunately, they do not allow dogs in their tents

How Much Does It Cost?

£145.00 per night (3 nights minimum hire)
