My rubbish Halford tent has expired and looking to invest in some decent equipment.

Daft question but do people just sleep on the floor with these. Is there enough cushioning?

I'd still recommend that you sleep on a mat of some sort.
Sleeping directly on the floor is not very nice. Get a self-inflating mattress if you can. If not, at the least get a cheap foam bedroll. The cold coming up through the ground at night is no laughing matter, believe me. Enjoy.

I know you were replying to someone else but just in case you hadn't noticed there was a Halford deal posted that listed a bunch of cheap camping gear like mats and pillows etc. Also I have to say the cold doesn't come up from the ground, I think we're pretty sure the core of the planet is molten iron. It's just heat wants to be everywhere and so escapes from you on all sides. Just feels colder on the ground side as air is a much better insulator than solid materials and so it escapes into the ground easier than it does into the air.

Okay, explain permafrost. I agree that at depths geothermal warming from the core has an effect, but we're not talking about digging a 10ft hole to sleep in , are we?

You're spot on in that not a lot of heat emanates from the ground. That's not the same as cold coming from the ground as I explained. In fact nothing really generates cold, just some materials are better at transferring heat away from a source than others.
So you're suggesting that the ground is always warmer than the air?
Go Outdoors didn’t have many decent options in comparison to this so have just ordered for a birthday camping trip. Cheers

Depends on the depth but on the surface it's possible for air to be warmer than the ground directly beneath it because the ground has such a large thermal capacity. It doesn't mean cold comes from the ground, it just means the ground takes longer to warm up so feels cooler than the air for longer. In certain circumstances.
