Hello

We use to camp all the time years ago when we had younger children and had to have large tents. We have took a 5 to 6 year break from camping due to health reasons.

We have decided to get back into camping but would like a smaller tent now our children are adults and flown the nest ( we had large 8 person ones before)

We are looking for a 4 person tent. 1 or 2 bedrooms. Separate living area which you can fully stand up in. Not fussed about standing up in the bedroom. Sewn in groundsheet. A canopy be nice but not a necessity. Maximum Budget 150 as we want to see if we enjoy it again before investing a lot in a tent.

Thank you for any help
Vicky

Something like this from Decathlon? The non black-out version is only about eighty quid at the moment. I've not used one but you see plenty of them around in France.

Have you got someone who could lend you a tent? Then if you decide its what you want to do you'll have 150 more to spend on a better tent?

I would recommend a used Outwell Trout Lake 4 or Bear Lake 4 but you would need slightly more than 150. These polycotton tents are built to last and so much more comfortable than polyester. Substantial zip in groundsheet, versatile bedroom compartment, room to stand up in living area, 3 opening windows at the front with opening insect mesh, well ventilated etc, etc. Lots of reviews on here from seasoned and novice campers alike. Well worth the extra expense and you wouldn`t loose out either. If you decided that camping wasn`t for you, you would easily sell it on as they are quite sought after. Here`s my trusty old Trout Lake 4.
