4-6 Man Tent

Growing family and not wanting to give up holidaying :thumbsup:

Preferably with 2 sections so big people don't have to go to bed with small people.

http://www.cybercheckout.co.uk/Items/300085000?

Saw this one and thought it seemed a good deal until I googled Ultrafit tents and following came up:

Ultrafit, ProAction, Other -What do I do? - UK Camp Site MessagesSteer clear of the UltraFit tents, they aren't very reliable after a couple of outings, they look okay at first glance, but they don't last. ...

We have no sleeping bags ect. so a pack might be good. Looking to spend max about £100.

Or perhaps going camping with a 1 year old and a 3 year old is madness.

Myself and some friends go camping around Europe most years and we use a decent tent, a similar one to the link you have given but a Vango Colorado on ebay. Most tents will do you, the more you spend the longer they last but if secured correctly and sited properly you can make do with most.

The most important thing you should spend decent cash on it a sleeping bag, provided it is dry you can sleep outside on a very cold night in a good quality sleeping bag.

With a 3 year old and a 1 year old I'd be staying in a caravan until they are a little older.

argos have a few tents, if i was you i would try 2 get a tent you can stand up in and somewhere you can do your cooking just in case it rains, have a look round some camping shops so you can see what the tent looks like up.
ive got this tent from argos but its £129.99 3408599

I have found this at Millets click £129......but you get a 4 man tent(2 sleeping compartments),sleeping bags,roll mats,double airbed,pump and lantern.

A bit over budget,but you get a lot of kit:thumbsup:

Ooh....8% quidco too!

Thanks! Deal looks good mucky :-D Especially like the double airbed:-D

Can't imagining me camping if it is cold/raining ;-)

Maybe I am optomistic over baby's camping ability :?

dont forget to buy a heater, you will need it but be carefull when using it in the tent.

I think that is a receipe for disaster! Given my children seem hell bent on self destruction.

just a suggestion as camping nights can be cold, we just brought a new tent and it is expensive setting up. But im sure your kids are going to love it.

here is a decent tent for £99.99 http://www.jacksonscamping.com/?pc=/product/601/

Please,do NOT use a heater in a tent..........I have seen a tent go up in seconds(a canvas frame jobbie at that!).....it is not worth it!Especially with young children around,just take sufficient clothing,socks,fleeces and hats to keep you snug if and when it gets a bit chilly.

All the fresh air you get when camping usually knocks you out anyway,I am always in me sleeping bag relatively early(for me that is)....also nothing wrong in jumping in it(the sleeping bag) and sitting up in it on your camp chair:thumbsup:

Have a weekend away first as a practice run for a longer break,saves the arguments when tent erecting:whistling:

Enjoy the great outdoors,I love camping:-D

we always use a heater but saying that we have a big 6 berth frame tent and no kids

Also worth making sure your car has enough luggage space to carry all the camping equipment (tent, spleeping bags, air beds, gas cooker/heater/light, gas bottle, bucket, ground sheet, etc) + all the other stuff you need for young kids and yourself (clothes/toys/push chair/food/etc). Or may be it is just us that always try to take too much!!

Note, that when the tent is soaking wet after a weeks camping in the rain it will be impssoble to pack as efficiently as it was when you were at home and all was nice and dry! Not that you should be put off, on a good campsite in reasonable weather camping can be great fun!

thats a good idea, as you might not like it, also look in your local paper as there maybe people selling up.
