Get set for the great outdoors
The great British summer is fast approaching, and if the weather so far is anything to go by, many of us will be inspired to rediscover the delights that the UK outdoors has to offer. With the summer heat, 4 solid walls and a roof may start to seem over-rated, so why not opt for the cost-effective option of pitching a tent and get a little bit closer to nature?
You may be heading off to a music-filled festival weekend, escaping to the seaside with your family or retreating to the countryside for a little peace and quiet. Wherever you choose for your camping destination, we have great ranges of tents, sleeping bags, and all the camping accessories you'll need to make your stay that bit more comfortable.
First you'll need to find the right tent, the most important factor of your trip. Our range caters for all, whether you're looking for something minimal and basic, or an element of luxury under canvas. For the budget-conscious camper we have a colourful 2-man tent, so you won't be able to miss it in a crowded campsite! If your tastes are a bit more low-key, we have a plainer 2-man option. Both are quick pitch - you'll be able to put them up in seconds - but they're also really compact and weigh less than 2kg, giving you plenty of space to pack the kitchen sink. But if you want more space we have room for 3 or 4 persons.
After sorting out your tent you'll want some bedding. To save space, opt for a camping mat which can roll up, making it easier to pack. If you're looking for something more indulgent to ensure a relaxed night's sleep, try the flock double air bed, complete with foot pump, and you'll be ready to nod off in minutes.
To prepare for some chilly nights, the Cedar 1800 sleeping bag is basic, but will keep you cosy all night. Never underestimate the value of a torch when camping; without it you may find yourself wandering into someone else's tent, or tripping over a guy-rope in the middle of the night!
The rest of the accessories are optional. We've a great selection for you to choose from so you can tailor your packing dependent on space, and the level of comfort and convenience you want to enjoy. Products have been developed to make your camping experience easier by fitting into the smallest possible space; for example the Fold It Cup and Fold It Plate which are easy to pack and super practical.
We hope your only medical emergency will be a grazed knee or cut finger, but to be prepared don't forget to take a First Aid kit, packed with essentials ready for a campsite casualty.
