LandyCampers is the brainchild of Max and Bela, two surf instructors who once spent an entire summer living in and out of their own beloved Land Rover Defender (or Landy for short!)
Teaching would-be surfers along the glistening French and Spanish coasts, they realised that living slow, free and easy in the beautiful Great Outdoors is something everybody should experience…
…which is why each of their individually converted Landys is perfectly equipped to take you blissfully away from the beaten tourist tracks, in style and comfort.
Simply choose your favourite Landy – a Defender 90 for two, or a Defender 110 for up to five – and get ready to hit the open road with a state-of-the-art, water-resistant roof tent, a comfy lounge in the rear, super-sturdy awning, and all the gear you’ll need to set up camp wherever you choose.
Max and Bela have seen to it that every last accessory included is of high quality, as well as ensuring you’ll have much more than the bare minimum required for an average camping break.
For starters, the roof tents feature a generous, larger-than-double-bed sleeping area with an extra-thick mattress, so there’ll be no wasted time (or breath!) struggling with airbeds in the dead of night. The new Defender 110 ‘Fern’ is ideal for families, as it comes equipped with dual-rooftop tents, for the ultimate off-grid family adventure. The 110 also includes – as standard – side wall panels for the 270 degree awning, which allows guests to create a large fully enclosed space to eat/relax/etc once fitted – what a great addition!
And with large skylight windows, you can gaze at the stars to your hearts’ content… or simply grab a book from your on-board Landy library to help you drift off.Keep reading

What the guests of LandyCampers say
“We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Defender. It’s equipped with everything you could possibly want for a camping weekend – Max and Bela have gone above and beyond to make everything as convenient and comfortable as possible. My son thoroughly enjoyed the novelty of driving in such an iconic vehicle.”
“Wonderful owners, top notch equipment and the Landy is gorgeous from all angles, inside and out! Pristine! Highly recommended!”
“We had the best time exploring Suffolk and Norfolk in the LandyCamper. Max and Bela offered lots of advice about the best nearly-wild campsites and planning our route when booking and the Defender was in perfect condition (and is easily the cleanest I’ve ever seen). It was packed full of every bit of camping equipment you could think of and they had even baked us a homemade sourdough loaf – ready for our Saturday morning bacon and egg sandwich in the open air.”
