Planning to spend your holidays in Bedfordshire? Hiring an RV through VroomVroomVroom is probably the best solution for those who are travelling with their friends and family. There are motorhome rentals that can accommodate up to seven people so you can all comfortably travel and stay in one place together. You may even be surprised to find out how much cheaper it is to book a camper hire in Bedfordshire with VroomVroomVroom rather than renting hotel rooms and taxicabs for the whole group. Depots to collect campervans are constantly changing. Currently, an RV or motorhome hire can be picked up and dropped off at the Leighton Buzzard Light Railway Station.
Situated in Eastern England and just a short drive north from London, the southern area of Bedfordshire is part of the Chiltern Hills. The ceremonial county is known as the gateway to the Midlands and East Anglia. One of England's smaller counties is full of historical links, fascinating, and unique attractions, unspoilt countryside, and modern facilities. Bedfordshire is particularly well known for its connections with the lace industry, the author John Bunyan, Glenn Miller who was stationed here during the Second World War, and the quintessential Afternoon Tea. Bedfordshire is also known for the historical Leighton Buzzard Light Railway Station, which operates on a 2-feet gauge track and only 3 miles long. It was established in 1919 connecting the sand quarries to the mainline railway on the southern part of Grovebury. Currently, the line operates as a heritage railway and is now a popular tourist attraction.
RV rental and campervan hire are also available from the following locations across the country. Check the map below for the list of locations.
