The new Bahia Range in Outwell's Superior Collection gives every camper the flexibility to meet any camping occasion.
Among the amazing features on this new collection is the latest freestanding Outwell Hybrid Frame System that allows the use of optional zip in pods
to create extra space for storage, kitchen and porch ares when required.
The new front of the Bahia 5 has a detachable groundsheet which enables it to be fully open as a canopy, half open as an extension or fully closed as an awning with a panorama front. Other new features on the Bahia 5 from Outwell are Night Sky Ceiling, Outwell Integrated Vent System and logo embossed fronts on the inner tents with double piping to hide the zips as well as Outwell's Wind Stabiliser System, Easy Pegging System and tinted windows with zip up curtains as standard.

Ok, it looks like a nice tent if you like that kind of thing but I think I'd rather use the £650 on one of Sunshine Stacey's deals.

Also, what is a 'footprint'?

I am a virgin camper myself, just treated our family to this to get us away for the odd weekends in warmer weather around the uk... ..... ( and get our 2 sons off the xbox, iPods...etc and back to nature!!! )

After research I decided on this tent, well reviewed make and a nice looking model, plus it can grow as our sons grow with the extra pod facilities.

You lay the footprint on the ground first, then erect the tent on it. Stops the tent getting dirty, or wet.

A sunshine Stacey break or equivalent is still a must in our family too

Ps ... The service from this company was great. Fast, friendly, efficient and speedy delivery

Thanks Schlurrp, I was wondering what the footprint was. Good luck with the camping, kids love it, I'm sure you'll have lots of fun and create some lovely memories.

Personally, camping's not for me, it's too in tents!

I can just imagine people's faces if we rocked up to Glastonbury with one of these! Its huge! You certainly wouldn't get lost trying to find your tent at night thats for sure!

Stupidly good deal for what you get - if I'd seen it myself I would have shrugged it off as a mis-price that wouldn't be honoured!

Now if only I had the money and room to store a fourth tent!

In fact you can get the Bahia 7 package for the price that most places are selling just the Bahia 5 tent Bahia 7

I know what you mean.I thought it was a mis price, especially when I saw that the price they had for the tent alone was £750!!!!! ....and I was interested in the £750 price until I saw the package deal. I am glad that someone who seems in the know when it comes to tents, thinks this is a good deal too

Although we dont have bahia 5, we picked up the Bahia 7 for a similar price (3 day old show model, they sold their stock and we got it soooo cheap)
The Outwell superior tents are fantastic and a truly epic tent that will last. Yes its not polycotton, but they are a good few times heavier and another grand in cost...
Anyone that is even thinking about it, just buy it. The whole package is great and having the fitted carpet makes for an exceptionally comfy and cosy tent...

how easy are these to put up ? is it a fairly quick and easy job or is it a long chore.?

If you do the alternative way, and not the Outwell way, you can do it on your own in about 20 mins...

This is for a similar designed outwell tent, the advantage of the Bahia rage is the side bow structure makes moving the tent when erected simple, we move ours with just the 2 of us....

Looks really good, looking for a spacious family tent for the 5 of us.
It needs to have a 2 rooms other than bedrooms to avoid mud etc getting in

I think the bedrooms maybe too small for 5. The illinois looks a bit better for me, comes with a free awning. Also looking at Vango

On the lookout for a tent, bit too much though

I agree. For 5 people I think you need a 6 or 7 berth. I was also looking at the Outwell Vermont LP. Looked a great size, but I opted for the Bahia 5 because of the quality and bargain price. There are only 4 of us and the Bahia is a good size for our needs. When the boys get older, we can purchase a sleeping pod without thinking of buying a completely new tent.

Nice tent for sure, but if you are thinking of your next holiday being a camping one be aware that it can be expensive.
My local campsite charges £20 for a pitch then £15 per adult and £10 per child. So for a family of 4 that's £70 per night before adding tent purchase!

No doubt there are cheaper campsites out there, but the costs could be a nasty surprise compared to staying in hotels.

Crikey, your local campsite sounds expensive!!!!.
I checked camp site prices when checking the pitch sizes available. You are right, camp costs per night can be expensive, but on average, for the areas I was looking at, £22-£25 per night for 2 adults and 2 children, incl electric hook up seemed the norm. Just about shopping around I guess.

for that price i want central heating included

I bought this tent last year. put it up in less than 10 mins on my own (first time out of the bag takes about 20 mins as you need to attach the flysheet to the groundsheet, but then take it down in one.
i payed £129.99 but atm is £159.99
its really quite big and lightweight but only has 1 large bedroom.
some of the reviews say the material is thin, which it is but incredibly strong and very good waterproofing.

I just stayed at a Premier Inn family room for £25, same price as your camping site above? Huge room and bath with loo, can't go wrong lol

plus to get kids of iPad and xbox, you just take it off them and kick them out to a nearby park with a ball?!

but if serious, looks like a good tent

HOW MUCH!!!!!!!

Coopers Field Edale about 34quid for two nights, car, two adults and two kids. Great place should you fancy, facilities not brill, view amazing.

After years of messing around with cheaper tents we splashed out £800 on an Outwell tent and I don't regret a penny of it.
The build quality is fantastic, never leaked once and it easily survived a storm when others nearby were ripped to shreds.

My next tent will be another Outwell, can't say more than that.

Must admit, Outwell tents are one of the best out there. We have a Vermont XLP and it amazing. Stands up to most things the British weather can throw at it and there is nothing better than camping for a great family holiday in my opinion. We pay around £25 a night for our summer holidays in Cornwall and Devon, so only £175-£200 for a week which makes for a great cheap break.

This is a great deal for families that intend on spending more than a weekend in a tent. The footprint and carpet are a must, so keep that in mind. Hot deal

arggghhh, dunno whether to buy this.

I was looking it at a few months ago but then heard about these inflatable tents that are put up in 30 seconds with no effort. being a lazy git that sounds awesome. research time.

Lol, good luck

I am researched out !!!!! oO. I just didn't want to fall into the trap of buying a cheaper one that only breaks/leaks after a couple of outings. The price made me plunge for this one I must admit, but it was just the quality of it and the fact that we can add pods on for extra space/ sleeping area as the boys get older.
Hope you find what you are looking for.

Looks like a good deal. We'd have to go for bigger with 7 of us though. My only suggestion would be to get any extras like the pods you want now rather than wait. You never know how long they'll be available for and you'll be disappointed you can't expand in a few years time.

have u missed the decimal point between those numbersHOW MUCH!!!!!!!
