After much searching and research I decided to buy the lichfield Findhorn 4. I needed a good size tent with enough room to stand up in but it must be able to be carried on a motorcycle as I travel to many race events. I also needed to be able to pitch the tent alone and in any weather conditions and this tent has been perfect. First test was to pitch the tent. Easily done by myself by pegging the rear of the ground sheet and then putting the poles in position and securing the guys. First attempt about 15 minutes. Second test two weeks in the Isle of Man. Easily managed to put all the gear on a sports motorcycle and pitched in about 10 minutes. The Manx weather tested the tent too with some sunshine, heavy rain and high winds, the findhorn took in its stride. This is classed as a weekend tent for 4 people but two would be very comfy for two weeks or so. If I had to find faults it would only be the access when wet. You can get a small amount of water coming in as you open the tent and a little more ventilation would reduce condensation or heat in good conditions but again this is not a major problem. I invested in extra poles to provide a sun shade and this worked a treat and I managed use the front for cooking. I owned a lichfield tent years ago and the first impressions is this is made to the same high standards. I also spoke to another couple on the campsite who had the same tent and they highly recommended the Findhorn 4. Excellent tent.

The Findhorn uses an ingenious pole configuration to give the maximum possible headroom in relation to the footprint. This pole system allows a fast pitch and gives ample head height in the living areas. The Findhorn models are designed for weekend campers looking for regular breaks away from the 9 to 5.
