Who’s planning to go camping this summer? If you’re imagining a damp, crowded and – let’s face it – potentially rather smelly space, uncomfortable nights tossing and turning, feeling every bump in the ground, and rushed trips to a distant toilet and shower block in the dark, THINK AGAIN. This is camping in style (we’d almost call it glamping but we’re going for that authentic at-one-with-nature experience too – no four-poster beds and electric sockets here!)
First up, if wrestling with poles and guy ropes for hours is not your idea of holiday fun, you need this tent! It’s incredibly spacious, has all kinds of clever features (including parent-pleasing blackout fabrics) and thanks to its inflatable frame was fully assembled in around 10 minutes. By an 11-year-old! It’s the Coleman FastPitch Air Valdes 6XL six-man tent (smaller versions are available) – and we’ve got one to give away on the show this week!
So that’s your hassle-free and luxurious home-away-from-home sorted. What are you going to put in it? We’ve got a wealth of ideas for essential (and maybe just fabulous) camping accessories, designed to be practical, stylish and fun when you’re going away with the family – and to take up as little space as possible for travelling too.
