A tent is normally a considerable investment, not a disposable purchase for a single holiday! Especially if you’ve bought for a family holiday, you’ll likely have spent hundreds of pounds, so you’ll be expecting to get more than a two week break in Devon out of it.

If you’re new to life in the great outdoors under canvas, you may need a few pointers, so today we’re starting a new series in keeping tents in good nick, starting with an instalment on cleaning your tent after use. Let’s review why a pressure washer might be your new best friend!

How would you like to get involved with our new project to find the best tents for all sorts of trips?

Are you a family that loves to spend time together in the great outdoors? Are you a survivalist that wants to be prepared for any eventuality? Whatever your reason to love camping out, we want to hear from you! We’re putting together a guide to camping, and while our main focus is tents and which deserve our stamp of approval, we’re also interested in all things camping related, whether that’s camping stoves, caravan awnings or camp site information.
