The World’s Coolest Tents

When it comes to tents I am a huge nerd and love absolutely everything about them.  The coolest tents might be a very subjective subject but I will try and discuss the facts as much as possible.

I’m such a big fan of tents that I’m somewhat of a collector and have far more than I need lying around my house; some of them are in bad shape and really should just be thrown out.

The reason I have so many tents is  I love buying them when they come out.

I understand that for some people buying a tent when it’s 10 years old and going cheap at a garage sale makes financial sense, but I love a brand new tent innovation that’s changed something fundamental and is going to radicalize my camping experience!

So due to my love of tents, the following is my tent wish list, a bunch of incredible tents that would be a blast to try out in the w…

Hayfield Camping and Caravanning Club Review

Hayfield Camping and Caravanning review are based on a recent stay I had there. the limitation of my review is I was only there for one night. The experience started with a phone call to the site where I was stated that I would arrive reasonably late. This was not acceptable I was told I couldn't get on the site and that it was better to turn up the next day. No booking was offered for the next day. When I turned up they didn't want to let me on to the site as I didn't have a booking.  I guess I was lucky they had some spare space but the site didn't look full especially as my tent was about two meters squared. I won't go into details about the price but as a non-member, the pitch was about £16 which seemed quite expensive. I went to purchase a chocolate bar and wasn't allowed to pay for the both with my card, something about two different businesses. it wasn't really customer friendly. The staff did allow me on and were very pleasant. The camping ground is quite small wi…

Durdle Door Holiday Park Review

Durdle Door Holiday Park will always have a special place in my heart, it's somewhere I have been visiting for 25 years. Admittedly it has been a few year since I last visited. Over May bank holiday I decided it was time to visit and reacquaint myself with Durdle Door. Durdle Door Holiday Park Review   The location is breathtaking it always was and that has never changed. The landscape along the Jurassic coast is magnificent with so much to offer. If you love to walk, if you love to stare into the distance looking at magnificent vistas you won't be disapointed.

There are 3 camping pods one at the north end entrance and two at the south end. …
