Codicote and Wokingham Tent and Accessories Show 2014

Camping Centre Exhibitions have been running camping shows for a number of years now and we were invited down to the Codicote Show in Hertfordshire to take a look around.

The show is based at the back of a large garden centre and has the full benefit of a big hard standing car park, a coffee shop, things to amuse the kids and of course the garden centre itself, however we were there to see the tents and the accessories, so down to it.

Tent Display

The tent display is outside on a well mown part of the garden centre and is on a slight incline, therefore shows the tents in their natural habitat and it also means the ground is well drained.  It had rained pretty much constantly for the previous few weeks prior to our visit and the ground was surprising hard, so all good, but to be safe you might want to bring along a spare pair of shoes just in case it keeps raining!

They have a massive range of tents from some of the major manufacturers in the industry including Outwell, Coleman and Vango. Not only are they displaying the 2014 ranges , they even have some 2013 models on sale at vastly reduced prices. They are displaying many tents including lightweight one-man tents, through to massive 10-berth family tents. Toilet tents, day rooms and gazebos / shelters are also available for you to wander around and get a good feel for them.

It isn't just tents that are on show, they also have a large range of the Raclet trailer tents set up and available for you to look around, plus a range of Silver Pop-Up Caravans on display.

Accessory Display

Not only have they got the great selection of tents, trailer tents and folding caravans, they also have a vast accessory store, covering several huge marquees, so fortunately this is undercover, so if those hailstones keep falling, you can have a good smooch around and stay dry. 

The accessories on display are from the major manufacturers and they seem to have almost everything from tent pegs to trailer boards, sleeping bags to stoves, gas bottles to guy ropes and so much more. We picked up some toilet chemicals, an air bed, a funky air chair and some gas canisters, but the options didn't stop there. There was crockery, cutlery and canoes. 

I love going to the shows and getting a good feel of the products first hand and this is a superb opportunity to do this. Even better when it rains and you are in the tents, it just makes me want to get away camping.
