Hi,

My parents are looking at buying a tent - they have camped before many times, but are now thinking that as they approach retirement, they would like to be able to take off and see more of the UK and have decided that camping may be the way to do it.

They don't want a big tent, as they only plan to use it for sleeping in.  They want enough space to sit in an evening, and have a cup of tea, but they plan to eat out so will not need cooking space or anything.  The tent needs to be reasonably quick to pitch as they will probably only stay in one place for a couple of nights before moving on.

I made a few suggestions, and my Dad went to GO yesterday and was looking at the Outwell Birdland 3 which he thought looked good.  I just wondered if anyone had any other suggestions of tents around this size?

Thanks,
Kate x

Hi the birdland 3 is a great tent, for the odd night or two. Have a look at the birdland 4 is about 0.5m wider and 1m longer this gives more room for adjusting their set-up, also plenty of room for a portapotti in the bedroom area for those night time calls of nature....
