We have just bought this tent and first impressions are very impressive. We haven't been on a trip yet but have put it up in the garden so this is more an initial review!
I managed to put the tent up on my own (as the wife was at work) and it took me just over half an hour. Lichfield say it should take around 15 mins, so with two people after you are used to it I could see this as a realistic (if tight) time.
The Sandwood seems very stable, probably from the use of steel poles, supplemented by fibreglass poles attached via pins to the main poles which extends the back and front of the tent to give extra headroom. This actually works very well and gives extremely good headroom, I am nearly 6ft and my head is nowhere near the roof when standing inside. This also leads me onto the internal space which is extremely roomy. There are two double bedrooms at the back each of which can be individually removed if required with the option of a third (included) bedroom in the living area, with the third bedroom in place the tent still feels surprisingly roomy but without it it is postively cavernous.
All the modern comforts you expect from a 2011 tent are present, ie sown in ground sheet, cable entry point etc, and as I say the tent seems extremely stable.
Access is via large doors with separate mesh at the front and both sides, the side doors are also protected by canopies which will be a godsend when getting in and out of the tent in the rain.
We are a family of three (5 year old daughter) and this tent fits the bill perfectly with plenty of living space but also speedy to put up. Certainly the tent would swallow a family of four with ease, and even for 5/6 person families this would still fit the bill even though the third optional bedroom does eat into the living space, this third bedroom could always be removed during the day to provide more space for larger families as it can be very quickly unclipped and stored.
The only downsides I can think of at the moment would be the size of the packed tent. This comes in a large (wheeled) soft type suitcase measuring 78cm x 51cm x 51cm so not small and certainly not light at 25kg. This size can be reduced a little by removing the third bedroom (if not required) and packing the poles separately as they come in their own bag. Also, while the two windows at the front are better than I thought they would be, the tent would benefit from maybe a window in the doors.
All in all, first impressions are a great tent!

An excellent tent for families or groups of friends who want to get away for the weekend. Use of Lichfield’s unique Tied Arch System (TAS) gives maximum headroom throughout the tent in relation to footprint.
