    Have a look at go outdoors, they have a sale on at the moment and all their tents should be straight forward to put up

    If you can afford one, go for an inflatable one. Uses no poles and takes less than 2 mins to put up.
    I'd recommend Go Outdoors too.

    if it's you first time have a look on Gumtree you can get a lot of decent kit cheap.. also if you have a garden try putting tent up out there and take time. involve the kids or get them to play a game while u struggle through. ..can you not invite anyone else maybe a friend with a kid? means u will have help..

    ​The inflatable tents do look fantastic but have you seen the size and weight if them when packed away? They're huge.

    Agree get the kids involved. Even if they can't do much, give them one part to and achieve. If they do nothing else, they will watch and absorb your skills, even if it drives you mad.

    We donated most of out kit last year, mine are all now grown up but I cherish the fun we all had. The old bones won't even take to an air mattress now but the kids are still adventurous outdoor types, so it was well worth it

    Khyam do "quick erect tents" - here's their own website for a browse. khyam.co.uk/sho…ct/
    If you like the look of them you can shop around for a deal. I've had a couple or three of them over the years and like them a lot.
    This site's good for info and opinions. ukcampsite.co.uk/

    I recommend Quechua tents from Decathlon. Well made and really easy to put up and take down once you know the method.

    Hey thank you for all your advise I really didn't know such thing as a air tent haha I think that's my best port of call there really expensive but such hassle free as my kids are lazy they would want to help but there mobiles and selfie pics would just get in the way lol and something will go wrong. I have been looking and I think I have found the cheapest I can find so far

    ​You linked to your basket, which doesn't work! Post a link to the products page!

    Don't discount standard tents though, we have this for the 4 of us, it has 2 huge bedrooms which can both be divided into 4 smaller rooms, the centre is massive, we cook in the porch area, and it really is a doddle to put up, even on your own.

    ​Honestly, the one I linked to is a doddle to put up. The poles are all the same length so the only difference between it and the inflatable tents is the poles, you'll be doing the same pegging out for the rest of the job.

    Mmm I am swaying toward your tent lol have you noticed anyone selling a full setup on this site? Might go for a second hand one and get the extras

    Sorry I haven't. but they'll be some on eBay, the older version is identical but is blue instead of green. To be honest £425 for the tent, porch, carpet an footprint is a bargain. We dot have the carpet or footprint but the porch makes a huge difference to how you use it.
