Toasting marshmallows around the campfire, playing board games on a rainy day or waking up to the sound of birdsong – a camping trip can provide numerous wholesome, exciting experiences! Often considered a cheaper, greener alternative to flying, camping allows the freedom and flexibility to explore new areas, meet new friends and particularly for children, make memories that last a lifetime. Getting closer to nature allows you to encounter all that the great outdoors has to offer, be it countryside views, forests, farmyards or beaches. Family-friendly campsites typically have a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere and may feature children’s playgrounds, swimming pools or off-road activity trails to guarantee all ages are catered for. At the heart of your trip is your tent – your ‘home away from home’. The perfect family tent will ensure you stay dry, comfortable and relaxed, so you can fully focus on enjoying your holiday!
The best family tents are weatherproof, durable and spacious, with plenty of family-friendly features. A large living space provides shelter on rainy days and enables the whole family to come together to cook, eat and play games. A generous-sized porch is ideal for wet clothes or muddy boots – even your dog will be happy with somewhere to dry off! When playtime is over and the night draws in, multiple separate bedrooms will provide the whole family with their own privacy and space to relax. Features such as blackout blinds and silent zips can enhance a night sleeping under canvas, ensuring everyone wakes up feeling refreshed and ready for another full day of adventures.
As your family grows and expands, the best tents are ready to adapt with you, with removable internal dividers to create a set up that suits your individual requirements. Inflatable or colour-coded poles make pitching the tent quick and simple, whilst an integrated ground sheet, taped seams, large windows and lots of storage pockets keep the interior clean and comfortable.
