Our company was established in 2005, initially to bring Airstream trailers to Europe. We’ve now grown to become the UK Dealership for HymerCar, Buccaneer, Knaus Caravans, Hymer Eriba Tourer and GL's and Hymer Motorhomes.
Michael is Sales Director and is the company ‘front man’ when need arises. Well known and liked in the caravan Industry, he started selling caravans in his teens at the family business, Barrons which he developed over 20 years with his father and brother. Michael is happiest when with customers, whether face to face or exchanging witty one liner e-mails. He is passionate about all the cool caravans we sell and (as he keeps telling us) relishes a 6 day week and week long stints in the exhibition halls at NEC, Birmingham.

Faye took over the seat of hubby David Hughes in April 2016 after numerous years in Catering Management. She has taken up David's passion for Eriba Tourings at Adventure LV but is committed to trying out (with her young family Oliver, Imogen and Annabelle) each of the 6 brands we now represent. Faye is extremely driven and is happiest when her customers are happy.
Mother of two to Joseph and Samantha and proud owner of loveable Jack Russell Pipkin (Pips), I have lived and worked in Cumbria for thirty years, ten of them in the Hospitality trade. I love meeting new people and passionate about the vehicles we have available here at Adventure Leisure.
We’re delighted to introduce our Service Manager at Tebay – Bob Ewart. Some may think that Bob only got the job because, like Michael (Hold), he’s been a Liverpool fan since he was in short trousers. But actually, it’s because he’s spent his life working in the industry and is perfectly placed to provide an excellent service to you, our customers.
Bob, who spent 25 years with the Swift group and joins Adventure Leisure Vehicles from Marquis, says: “The three brands are very different from most UK caravans and there’s a lot to learn but I’m loving every minute of it. It’s very rewarding, working with such beautiful products and the team at Tebay are great.”
Servicing Assistant Manager
Jon is Head Technician at Tebay and our resident miracle worker. He has the patience of a saint and the work ethic of a Challenger tank, perhaps unsurprising as his apprenticeship was with Vickers Defence building tanks. Jon is not on e-mail, but is always at the end of the telephone for any customer who needs him. He was in the prototyping team at Elddis in Consett before joining Airstream, so is well used to finding solutions to any problem and to all types of caravan construction.
