AS A MOTORCARAVANNER, you know holidays aren’t just about the destination. There’s nothing like the scenic coastal journey to your favourite Cornish town (pasty stops optional!), or following the sunset over the fabulous dales of North Yorkshire.

Likewise, Choose Leisure believes buying, selling or servicing your motorhome should be, while always professional, a leisurely and enjoyable experience that sets you up for the next part of your adventure.

With a no-pressure approach that sets them apart, the team at Choose Leisure offers an incredibly personal experience that is rarely seen nowadays.

Paul and Jenny Santos will be familiar to Choose Leisure’s longstanding customers, as founders and owners of Kent’s largest motorhome dealership.

Paul says, “Jenny and I are extremely proud of the team we’ve built here. Not only is everyone talented at what they do, but they all play a vital role in ensuring our customers have the type of experience we would expect to receive ourselves. We work hard at making Choose Leisure a happy and rewarding environment to be a part of, and that feeling undoubtedly reaches our customers.”

Mike from Kent is a Choose Leisure customer. He says: “I can confirm that all the positive reviews here are spot on. My wife and I turned up one afternoon, just to have a look. It was a relaxed experience and without any pressure, we decided on an Elddis Majestic 175. Over the years we have bought and sold many vehicles, lots through dealers, and we agree, Choose Leisure are at the top of their game when it comes to treating customers properly. Jonathan Smith dealt with the sales, Mark, the handover, and Charlie resolved some snagging problems over the phone. All were brilliant but a very special thank you must go to Jonathan, who is a credit to the company. I was so impressed that if I hadn’t retired and wasn’t heading out on the road in our new ‘van, I’d be tempted to apply for a job there!”

Choose Leisure: A quick history

Choose Leisure, in Canterbury, Kent

In 2008, Choose Leisure was born, with half a dozen ‘vans in stock and a team of three. Shortly after, the company became pioneers of motorhome brokerage, inspired by a similar concept in the boating industry.

Now Choose Leisure employs 38 people, boasts around 15,000 website views per month and usually stocks over 100 motorhomes at the site on the main Ashford Road, just outside Canterbury, in Kent.

The Choose Leisure team are there seven days a week, to offer friendly and knowledgeable advice while you browse a huge selection of quality used ‘vans, and new brands including Auto-Sleepers, Bailey, McLouis Fusion and Hillside campervans.


“The level of service and care I have received from Choose Leisure and Charlie has been unprecedented. I would encourage anyone to consider buying from an independent family run company such as Choose Leisure as the level of service and customer care just can not be offered by a multi branched dealer. Thank you Charlie and your team!” Jeff, Essex

“Best service I’ve ever experienced. Care and attention to detail second to none. Fantastic handover. But better still, when we found some small problems with the motorhome, these where quickly sorted by the service department .Proud to have Choose Leisure displayed on my number plate. Will always recommend” Jon, West Yorkshire
