Freedom Trail Eskdale 8 man tent only £89.99 down from £174.99 (RRP £250) @ Go Outdoors instore

Found 16th Jun 2013
Went to pick up the 6 man version yesterday that I had reserved and posted on here previously and saw this in the Plymouth store, so got this instead. I know it's not the best, especially it's water resistance, but it'll do me. Not sure if national and not online, but had proper POS displayed. Picture is of receipt next to the leaflet from the tent bag.

The Freedom Trail Eskdale 8 is a functional family tent with lots of space but without the extra details of more expensive models.

The large central living space has full-width bedroom (which can be sub-divided) to one side and a pair of smaller rooms to the other, with external doors and windows on both sides. A removable bathtub groundsheet covers the living area and helps to keep things clean inside.

The fibreglass poles slip through roof pole sleeves and are retained with ring and pin fittings to make pitching easier. Pole clips attach the flysheet to the poles and help to stop the tent flapping in windy conditions.

A vent behind each bedroom allows air to flow through the length of the tent, reducing condensation. In sunny weather you can roll the door up out of the way, or if you have extra poles you can prop the door up and use it as a sunshade.
Roomy, practical and fun, the Eskdale 8 is a simple solution for family and group camps.

I'm sure the cashier said this deal was on until at least the middle of the week.

It says 3 bedrooms, but it's actually 4. The bedrooms have sewn-in groundsheets.

This is perfect for first time buyers wanting to get on the canvas ladder

I didn't expect it to get much heat (judging by my post for the 6 man one), but I didn't expect it to go South either. I realise it's no Outwell or Vango, but c'mon.

You could post a £250 Gore-tex Pro jacket at £10 and it would still be voted cold if on sale at Go Outdoors. There seems to be a group always voting cold whatever Go Outdoors have on offer - maybe it's competitors staff. It's the same with Android phones - the iPhone mob automatically vote all things Android cold and if you try and post anything to do with a football team like Man United, Chelsea etc - be prepared for the refrigerator.
Shame really that these people are missing the purpose of the site and just cannot be bothered to tell us why it's cold. What does that tell you about them?
Thanks for posting the deal.

Thanks - I've never had a problem with Go Outdoors - free wall climbing for my kids (plus charitable donation) and they even phoned me this morning to say they would hold for a further day, the 6 man tent that I reserved and failed to collect on Saturday, as I bought this one (although I did say to the assistant about cancelling my reservation and he said not to worry)!
