Have you been craving a bit of adventure?

We’ve all been suffering from cabin fever over this last year, looking at the same four walls. With staycations proving really popular and places across the UK booking up fast, we have the perfect alternative for you to cure that wanderlust.

Offering the opportunity to get away and into nature, Yorkshire Vehicle Hire rent out Land Rover Defenders, which are equipped with all you need for a unique camping adventure. With a choice of two vehicles – both supplied with a rooftop tent, gas cooker, table and chairs, as well as a cool box and kitchen utensils – these sweet rides have everything you and a friend or partner will need to get out and about into the beautiful wilds of the North, getting back to basics in style.

Yorkshire Vehicle Hire was born out of a love of adventure, Land Rovers and Yorkshire – and are dedicated to helping us get behind the wheel of one of these iconic trucks. The Land Rover Defender is loved by many, from city dwellers reminiscing of wilder times, to farmers and royals out in the countryside. With permeant four-wheel drive, you can cross any terrain – and in an interior designed for practicality and comfort, you’ll be inspired to explore further afield than ever before.

WIN big with HLN

We’ve teamed up with Yorkshire Vehicle Hire to offer one lucky winner a two-night trip in either the Milly or Bruce Defender, fully equipped and ready to go – an adventure worth over £290 and far more in terms of the experience. Take some time to explore Yorkshire. Or, if you fancy a longer holiday, have a chat with Tom at Yorkshire Vehicle Hire about adding a few extra days on. Tom recommends the North East 250, which can take between 3 and 7 days.
