• We’ve had some extremely good gear from Robens over the years. Great quality, lightweight, and innovative space-saving designs.

    Now our youngest is a bit older, we’re also doing some more adventurous camping, […]

  • We’ve already featured one lightweight backpacking or bike-packing sleeping bag. Well, here’s another. Is the Robens Spur 250, and unlike the Robens Moraine I, the Robens Spur 250 is a 2-season sleeping […]

  • If you are planning any summer adventures, backpacking or bike packing with your kids, then you’ll want a summer sleeping bag that is light and compact. And that’s exactly what the Robens Moraine 1 is.

    Robens […]

  • For most family camping, I would recommend getting a large and comfortable self-inflating mat, like the Outwell Dreamboat.

    When your kids are young, getting away camping is a great adventure. And while they […]

  • Small backpacks have certainly come a long way. Now you can get features on them that used to be found on much larger hiking bags.

    The good news for us parents is that we can have a more versatile backpack for […]

  • This is a nice gentle walk around the Cole Mere Lake in Shropshire.
    There is a car park at the start and end of this circular walk. Just by the car park is a grassy picnic area.

    Cole Mere is on a family cycle […]

    Have a good trip!

  • The Outwell Dreamboats are fantastic self-inflating mats for family car camping, which we’ve reviewed before.

    Well, now the Outwell Dreamboat has a matching pillow: the Outwell Dreamboat Ergo Pillow. And […]

  • When we go out on long hikes with our dog, we take a water bottle and collapsible bowl for her to drink from.  The bowl is sometimes clipped to the outside of our backpacks after it’s been used.

    Fortunately, […]

  • Outwell has been making fantastic looking collapsible lanterns, which look more like lamps you have in your home, for a number of years as part of the Outwell Collaps Range.

    The Outwell Polaris Lux Lamp is […]

  • Unless you go camping where there are no camping facilities, you might think a portable shower isn’t necessary. And yes, the portable showers that have a bag hanging in a tree produce mixed results.

    However, […]

    Struggling to find somewhere ourselves too. Lots of places are booked or only partially open.

  • This walk takes you from the wooded car park of Corbett Wood and up to the summit of Grinshill.
    After reaching the top and taking in the views, you carry on around the hill, and eventually return to the car park […]

  • A foldable dish rack may not be the most exciting camping gadget 😉

    However, it can provide some much-needed practicality if you are washing up at your tent, in your caravan, or motor home, and you don’t have […]

  • For years we’ve used this large plastic water carrier.

    It holds 10 litres of water, is very rugged, and has been to a great many campsites.

    There’s one problem: it’s quite bulky to take.
    Trying the new […]

  • Come to our free visitor centre on the edge of Fairhaven Lake. It’s the gateway to the north side of the Ribble Estuary – the third most important estuary in the UK – which attracts over 250,000 birds each year. […]

  • It’s not just shops at the Trafford Centre. You can find sea life there too at the SeaLife centre.

  • I first saw this new Outwell Canella Supreme Sleeping Bag at Outwell’s 2020 launch event.

    What really struck me about this sleeping bag, was that despite it being rated for three seasons (that is, OK to use […]

    Hi Amanda and welcome 🙂 We love camping in Wales too.

  • The Vango Helvellyn 300 is the same layout as the older Vango Mirage 300 we’ve been using.

    It comes with a handy two-door porch, complete with optional groundsheet. We found this makes a great space to store […]
