Escape to the Chateau

Camper Van

Series 6 - Episode 5 Camper Van



There never seems to be much down-time at that sumptuous French château for owners Dick and Angel Strawbridge. Even as the summer ends after their busiest ever season and the last wedding of the year is nearly over, there’s still a lot to do.

While most people would put up their feet and have a Pernod, Dick and Angel welcome an armada of vintage Citroëns that call in at the castle for a rest and breakfast during a fund-raising charity tour of France.

And the family, including youngsters Arthur and Dorothy, work on their latest project, doing up a 1980s Asquith bus.


Dick Strawbridge and Angel Adoree host their last wedding of the year, and they welcome a fleet of vintage Citroens, whose drivers are making a pit-stop on a charity tour around France. After a sumptuous breakfast, the cars are on their way, and Dick, Angel, Arthur and Dorothy can focus on a retro vehicle of their own, the 1980s Asquith bus. With Angel's unique design, and Dick's engineering, it soon becomes the camper van the family dreamed of.
