Things to consider when choosing a family tent

With queues at airports and ports not showing any signs of easing, the UK camping reigns supreme for those looking for family fun without the hassle this summer! If you’re planning your camping holiday and are looking to purchase a new tent, we have some advice for you to make sure you consider the important things before you make your purchase.

Plus, we’ve got fantastic discounts in our ‘everything must go’ sale, so look no further if you’re after a bargain! 

Choosing a family tent with plenty of room

One of the things at the top of most people’s list is making sure you’ve got room to holiday comfortably as a family of 3,4,5 or more! Plus any furry friends you might be bringing along. When choosing a family tent, consider getting the largest tent you can for your money. Having extra space isn’t something you’ll regret spending money on and you can opt for an air tent to make sure you aren’t spending ages putting the tent together. 

Tents to suit all weathers

It may seem obvious, but knowing how your tent performs in every sort of weather is essential when choosing a family tent. Look for tents made from high quality, breathable fabrics that keep the rain out, while allowing the air in so the whole family can stay cool on those warmer summer days. Doing your research and investing in a tent that’s going to keep you protected from the elements is key!

Other things to think about… 

If you’ve got kids- consider a camping toilet

Parents will know that kids often need to use the loo multiple times through the night, so to avoid having to head to the toilet block in the cold and dark we’d recommend taking a camping toilet. Trust us, you’ll appreciate the convenience!

Be organised with camping storage 

The key to stress-free camping is definitely being organised. To avoid having clothes strewn all over the place and to make sure you can find exactly what you’re looking for when you need it, we’d recommend taking some camping storage. Whether it’s wardrobe or drawer units for clothes, or a hanging organiser so everything’s visible at a glance, it’ll transform your camping experience. A tidy tent is a happy tent!
