“Some campsites will also provide toilet tents for customers to use on their allocated pitch.
“Always dispose of waste in the allocated waste disposal point.
“Let’s leave our beautiful countryside as we found it.”
What do I need to pack for a camping holiday?
“The most essential thing to pack for your camping trip is a good sense of humour and a smile. Camping is meant to be fun, don’t take stuff too serious!” enthused Carl Collins from TentLife.
“Camping can be as basic or luxurious as you choose, but the bare minimum you’ll need for some fresh air fun is the following. A suitably sized tent, some gear to sleep in/on (sleeping bag and sleeping mat), some camping chairs and a bit of cooking gear (stove, pans, plates etc).
“Make sure that this stuff is packed in your car as the bare minimum. If you forget anything else, chances are a local shop or supermarket can help.”
“It becomes a bit of a bug and you always find yourself buying new stuff.”
The camping expert shared TentLife’s recommendations for 2021.
Tent – Check out the Coleman Meadowood 6, poled tent with lots of features and space. Prefer pumping up your tent? The Berghaus Air range with its inflatable beams is a great choice, catering for all family sizes and used by thousands of happy campers.
Sleeping bags – Vango Radiate range, heated sleeping bags, perfect for cold sleepers. Also, Vango’s eco-friendly Earth Collection Evolve Superwarm range, made of recycled materials.
Chairs – Very comfy HiGear Vegas XL Deluxe Quilted Chair. Part tub style lounger that keeps your back out of the draught.
Stove – The very versatile Campingaz Party Grill 400 CV. It’s a stove, grill, BBQ and wok – a good allrounder that easily connects to their CV gas canisters.
Kitchen – HiGear Mirage deluxe kitchen unit. Ideal food prep area, good for cooking on and includes a washbasin and storage. Also a hanger for lights and so forth.
