I bought mine from
here
My first order was lost after posting, but they sorted it out quickly and effeciently.

The lanterns only take the special candles made for them, but the Citronella ones smell nice ,and help keep the mossies away. The candles burn for about nine or ten hours continuously.

The light is warmer and cosier than from a LED lamp, in winter the warmth is welcome too.

I've used mine for a Christmas event too, on the end of a pole Victorian style.

Have been searching for this candle lantern for ages having lost a second hand one...  But those are a hell of price anybody know a cheaper source?

Mine was much simpler and used ordinary tea lights rather then special candles

When buying the smaller essential such as cutlery, can openers etc try and start collecting them, by adding one or two bits per week to your weekly shopping list, that way you won't end up spending a small fortune in one hit.   You probably won't notice the odd few pounds extra on your weekly shopping bill, but come to buy it all at once and you will notice.
As it is inevitable that you will manage to loose a teaspoon at the washing up sinks - no matter how careful you are, don't take grannies heirloom silver - something like Tesco's basic is fine.   What's more you want get too upset when you loose a bit.
Not only have I lost bits, but also gain things that I am perfectly sure wern't in the sink when I was washing up.

I find that by having stuff just for camping - and keeping it in separate boxes (complete with check lists) I'm not likely to end up on site and find that I have forgotten the cutlery or something.

Freeze 2lt bottles of water for a week before you go,allways remember to empty a bit of water out 1st though.They last a lot longer than freezer blokes, then you have cool water to drink too.

Been to Towsure today, they have little lanterns that hold tealights, price about a fiver.
They also have the larger ones with a spike for outside your tent.

I think Ikea do them too.

J cloths and plastic bags always come in useful. So do clothes pegs for things other than pegging clothes (peg a bag of pasta closed, etc)
