at maztucker, my brother has just bought the vango drummond to get started back in to camping after a 25 year lay off! Looks like a really nice and well made, reliable tent though I'd be a bit concerned about it not having a fully sewn in groundsheet.
If you can stretch your budget, the new HiGear Gobi 4 Elite is a cracker. Last years didn't have the full groundsheet but this years does. I keep one as a spare, it has 2m headroom, a good size sleeping space and a decent living area for tables, chairs and gear.......
Or, the Vango Icarus 500, a bit bigger but really, really popular (I see them everywhere) and pimps to put up - me and my boy use a smaller Icarus 300 on our fishing trips, you could also consider that, but it only stands at 1.5m high, again a breeze to put up.
All of these have a HH of at least 3000 so they'll keep you dry!
