To round off the summer holidays, we’re taking the children off on a camping trip to North Yorkshire over the August Bank Holiday which we are all very excited about as the kids will get to spend some quality time with their Yorkshire cousins.  Never one to miss a shopping opportunity, I’ve been looking at our camping gear and deciding what we simply cannot do without (doesn’t everyone need a new set of designer enamelware in their lives?)  Ok… maybe not quite, but there are lots of fantastically practical (and fantastically pretty) camping accessories to be had if you shop in the right places.  The trick is to find stylish items that are also realistically practical for use in the ever changing summer weather we are ‘blessed’ with.  Whether you choose to rough it out in a one man tent, live it up in a yurt or get cosy in a glamping pod, there are new suppliers of cool camping kit out there with the right gear just for you.

  1. Some great ideas…. Will need a Bedouin tent for our next camping trip. Probably in January when the temp drops to mid-20’s. ☀??
