6 Reviews of the Cathedral 8

By: 15Estudy  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2014   Rating: 

Love this tent has lasted 4-5 years, spaceous and robust. Waterproof during a season where every local campsite was flooded, withstood a hurricane for 2 weeks on 2 separate occasions as well as being pitched in hurricane Birtha. It sleeps 8 and a dog comfortably, easy to pitch and maintain, without comprising living space.

As others have said a doddle to put up. Spacious. Only let downs are high step into tent and the other niggle is where the window 'curtains' toggles attached/suspended. These are very flimsy and would have been better with something more substantial to fasten curtain toggles to like other tents ie a plastic ring. Apart from that a brilliant tent in lousy heavy rain typically BST.

Awesome tent, seriously! pitched it as a complete newbie in under 40 mins, in the rain! loads of space, nice carpet, plenty of vents and even an electric hookup opening on both sides!

The only places where it looses points for me are 1) no internal central light hook, and 2) the poles to use the door as an awning don't come supplied. Other than this its a brilliant family tent!

Bought this year used 4 times already this is an upgrade to our previous tent pretty much what you expect in a tunnel tent nice bright and airy

Step to go in is on the high side keep tripping over it and that's before a drink. No central light hanger which we believe is the biggest downfall but we can get round it otherwise excellent buy!

Well as we now have our own little family off 4 we decided we needed to upgrade to a big tent without the hassle and price of a big tent. We went and had a look at this tent in a showroom and knew it was bang on for our family, loads of internal space, more than enough head room and great bedroom set up. It also felt bright and open because of all the options of windows which all have dark coloured curtains for night time. It's well ventilated and has 2 mains inlet zips. As to pitching this tent you will find that after the first time you put it up it becomes a absolute doddle with 2 of you. It takes us about 30 mins now which includes putting in all bedrooms and laying footprint and carpet, not bad for a tent this size. It comes down just as quick. All in all we really like this tent and it only cost £300. The only downside to this tent is you can not get a side canopy for it hence the 9 out of 10.

OMG, you have a big family? You need one of these. No divorce induced while pitching, loads of room and privacy. Can not fault. Look around before buying we found one on an internet shop for £300. The internal lay out can be made to suit your particular circumstances.So all bedrooms can be closed off. We kept our bedroom open and the childrens we shut the door to help keep them warmer.The other room was kept as a bedroom/ kennel. The living area was plenty big enough and the fact that thezips fastened at the top meant our little old dog couldn't escape. The headroom was plenty and we never got over hot. The cable inlet was a god send and taking the tent down was childs play.
