My wife and I thought we'd take the plunge and try camping. We chose this tent because of all the space it offered us and our 2 daughters one aged 7 and the other aged 2. I've never put up a tent this big before but the basics are the same. To get it up and pegged down took me around an hour, it's huge. We brought the porch too but didn't use it on this occasion as we only stayed one night. Great value in the sale and we had a very warm and cosy night as the bedroom pods are a tent inside a tent it stays lovely and warm.
Great place to stay and great value.

I'd previously owned this tent and had some good holidays with it. I had to buy another last year, as the previous one was stolen from my shed, The latest one unfortunately wasn't so good. One of the poles split the first time I put the tent up. I bought the tent last Sept whilst on offer, and it's been waiting for it's first outing for 6 months, and I'm pretty disappointed. I'm now trying to get the pole/tent replaced, which isn't proving easy as it is now down to me to prove the tent is faulty. No immediate replacement offered, so if you buy one, check it works.
