I like to pitch near the sea. I love sitting inside at sunset and feeling the temperature drop, knowing I will soon be getting all cosy warm in bed, breathing that fresh air, and nodding off to the sound of the waves. Also like a little breeze as the tent poles creak ever so slightly. Also love the pitter patter sound of rain during the night.

Cotton canvas all the way..........

I love the freedom from routine/housework and busyness of life. That my children can play safely outdoors and are part of a little community for a week. Lovely 😍

Unlike our house, which we rent, our tent is OURS and we have all the optional extras making it versatile depending on how long we are staying. I dread putting it away after a trip and dread the day it needs replacing.

Sitting in it as the sun goes down.

I like how once I get my tent up in a French campsite there is a corner of a foreign field that is forever England, it become home if only for one night, a place I can belong.

Enjoy the liveliness of the syntax.

EVERYTHING!

The smell, the colours, the carpet, the soft furnishings, the homely touches, the almost silent whirr of the coolbox - but mainly the view! Beautiful children inwards or an adventure waiting outside your doorstep (zip!)

Like lots of others, we love the space, the colour, we're just more comfortable in it than we would be in a hotel :)
