  1. Having a good quality tent should be the first item on any campers list. We recommend looking for well insulated tents that will keep the draft out during the evening. Also, make sure your tent can sleep the number of people that will be occupying it.

Here is the Eurohike Rydal 500 5 Man Tent for only £300.00 at Millets. This tent is perfect for a small family or group of friends.

  1. Sleeping Bag. A well made sleeping bag is second on the list and is just as important as your tent. It will keep you cosy and warm during the night and will improve your nights rest.

Here is the Stratos 250 Sleeping Bag for just £37.50 at Cotswold Outdoor. This is a great product for anyone working with a budget.

  1. Camp Bed. For an even better night sleep we recommend acquiring a camp bed. If you suffer from any back problems or just want a more comfortable sleep then a camp bed is a must have.

Pick up a Campingaz 200s Double Burner Stove at £45.00 from Millets. An easy to carry stove with windshields.

  1. Camp Table. When the food is prepared a camp table will come in very handy. Find one that is big enough to accommodate your party and easily packed away to create more room when not in use.
