The Atlantic Highway

Hitting the Open Road: Conquering the Atlantic Highway with Defender Campers

The wind in your hair, the salty tang of the sea air, and the rugged coastline stretching out before you - that's the magic of exploring the Atlantic Highway in a Land Rover Defender. And what better way to do it than with a fully equipped camper from Defender Campers?

Your chariot awaits: Forget cramped rental cars. Picture yourself behind the wheel of an iconic Land Rover Defender, its powerful engine purring as you navigate the twists and turns of the coastal road. We offer a range of Defenders, each kitted out for adventure with comfy beds, cooking facilities, and all the essentials for an off grid escape.

The journey unfolds: Starting in Somerset, soak in the charm of quaint villages like Dunster, before the dramatic Exmoor National Park takes your breath away. Stop at Porlock Weir, a picturesque harbour nestled between towering cliffs, and savour fresh seafood while watching the waves crash.

Cornwall calling: As you cross the border into Cornwall, the Atlantic Highway truly comes alive. Dramatic cliffs plunge into the turquoise waters, hidden coves beckon, and charming fishing villages like Boscastle and St Ives offer the perfect pitstops. Don't miss Land's End, the most westerly tip of mainland England, for breath-taking panoramas and legendary tales.

Wild camping bliss: With your Defender Camper, and wild with consent, embrace the freedom of wild camping. Find secluded spots with stunning views, pull up, and enjoy the peace and quiet under a star-filled sky. Defender Campers provide expert advice and all the necessary equipment for a safe and comfortable off-grid experience.

Beyond the road: The Atlantic Highway is just the beginning. Use your Defender as your base to explore gems like hidden waterfalls, ancient castles, and mystical moorlands. Hike dramatic cliff paths, kayak in turquoise coves, or simply relax on pristine beaches. Paddle boards are available for an extra £40 for your rental if you truly want to explore. (Mrs DC paddling in Devon below)

Memories made: As your adventure comes to an end, you'll be left with memories etched in your soul - the thrill of the open road, the raw beauty of the coastline, and the unique freedom of exploring in a capable Defender Camper.

  • Book your Defender Camper well in advance, especially during peak season.
