• I’ve recently been listening to the audiobook version of ‘My Midsummer Morning’ by Alastair Humphreys.

    Al Humphreys is an adventurer: he cycled around the world after leaving university, rowed the Atlan […]

  • Col de la Forclaz is a small Alpine village that overlooks Lake Annecy. It’s well worth the drive up the winding mountain roads to take in the view.

  • Along the shores of Lake Annecy, between the towns of Doussard and Annecy, is a traffic free cycle route that follows the path of an old railway line.
    With only a handful of places where it crosses roads, this […]

  • This is a circular hike along the ridgeline (la crête) of the Taillefer, which overlooks Lake Annecy in France.

    This hike would be very tough with small children, due to the distance and the rocks you have to […]

    Hi Andrew,
    Welcome to the Camping Group!
    We have some 6 person tents we’ve looked at and rated here: https://www.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/product-category/camping-gear/tents/?pa_sleeps=sleeps-6
    Tunnel tents are really easy to pitch, but personally, I like the tents with a front porch as it works really well for the UK weather! Depending on your…[Read more]

    If you like camping in Europe, we will be soon publishing details and a video of an excellent campsite we’ve recently come back from. Stay tuned!

  • Fieldhead Campsite is in the picturesque village of Edale in the Peak District, with walks up to the peaks from the campsite, including to Kinder Scout.

    There are six camping fields, with one being a dedicated […]

  • This trail goes from the village of Edale, which you can also get to by train, and up the Grindsbrook path and along the ridge at the edge of Kinder Scout in the Peak District.

    For a family, we would rate this […]

  • The old part of Annecy is right on the shores of the famous Lake Annecy in France. It’s a great place to wander and explore the old streets and many cafes.
    There’s also a large park and plenty of pedalos for […]

  • I think the Easy Camp Palmdale 500 Lux gives you a lot of tent for the price. Although the RRP is £400, you can usually pick this tent up for around £300, which is a bargain.

    The living space of this tent is d […]

  • This is a circular route around Nescliffe.
    You can either walk or cycle this route as it is on bridleways, though if you cycle, you will have to detour some parts, such as bypass the old Iron Age Hill Fort where […]

  • The Outwell Collingwood 5 family tent comes full of features.

    The bedrooms are arranged so that you have a double and a triple-person room, though you can remove the bedroom divider if you […]

  • The Vango Avington 600XL has a layout I really like on a family tent, with the large front porch that’s so useful for camping in the British weather.

    At the back of the tent are two bedrooms, each triple-size. […]

  • I have discussed before about the usefulness of having a camping tarp in your kit, and have these video instructions on how to put up a tarp.

    Well, being a bit if a tarp fan, I was really impressed when I saw […]

  • This route takes you up two hills: Pontesford Hill and Earl’s Hill in Shropshire. Well, they’re two hills, but joined together!
    Earl’s Hill is a Nature Reserve managed by the local Shropshire Wildlife Trust, with […]

  • The Outwell Reddick 4A is a great little family tent. It’s inflatable too.

    I say ‘little’ as it is very similar to the large luxury Outwell tents, but in a much smaller package, making it an ideal tent for the […]

  • The Vango Celino Air 400 is a great little tent package.

    It comes with two double bedrooms in the back of the tent, a living area, and a fantastic front porch.

    I really like the style of these types of […]

  • The Easy Camp Blizzard 300 certainly lives up to its brand of ‘Easy Camp’. This is a small and light tent that won’t take up a lot of space in your car. It’s also simple to pitch and inflatable, and so it’s ideal […]

  • This year, I am doing some hands-on reviews of smaller tents; the tents ideal to throw in the back of your car when the weekend weather is good, for a spot of quick weekend camping.

    One of the small tents I was […]

  • Barnsoul park is surrounded by a working farm and stunning wooded parkland abounding in wildlife – fox, deer, over 100 different bird species and even the occasional otter. Set amongst woodlands and rolling f […]
