Pulled the tent out this weekend , it went well the tent easy to put up, large 4 inch gap in awning area making it drafty . Main sleeping compartment ok to sleep 3 at a push , 2 easy. Looking to do more camping but decided to get a larger tent Ok for the novice camper.

The inner tent did seem to get damp though has the fly sheet weren't doing its job

We've used this tent a couple of times and love it. It is lightweight and easy to pack away but is spacious enough for us two - even in the pouring rain in Dorset. I, too, thought that the front area was draughty until going on the Lichfield site and noticing the set up picture showing the groundsheet folded at the edges and secured to the poles! Marvellous - can't wait to try that trick in the spring/summer!

I bought this tent for us to try camping for me, oh and two children. It was plenty big enough for the four of us but, then again my girls are quite tiny! It was great for a couple of nights camping as it packs away smaller than our chairs but, the living area was a problem for my OH being 6'2'. We have upgraded now to an eight birth tent but, will still keep the cherokee3 for odd nights away as it kept us nice and dry and we were really warm all snuggled together.

Our 1st tent, quite easy to erect. Big enough for 2 + dog but think 3 would be a squeeze. The porch area is roomy, however, the gap from the flysheet to the ground is 4' making it drafty. Best used as a summer tent I would say although we had heavy rain but the tent didn't leak at all. All in all not a bad tent but will be upgrading to 1 with a zip in or bath tub porch ground sheet.

I have to say I am VERY pleased with my Lichfield. I have just got back from 3 nights away and it never gave me any trouble. I was pitched under some very large trees and I thought they would provide me with some shelter. Was I ever wrong! On the second night the heavens opened up! All the trees done were hold the rain water until they were nice big fat juicy drops before unleashing them onto me. Did my tent buckle under the strain? Did holes pop up in the seams? Was there even any signs of condensation in the morning? (Not to mention the twigs and leaves etc. Fell from the trees too!) No, no and no. This tent is an unsung hero. If yours has leaked I would say take it back and have it replaced, yours is probably just a one off 'duff' one. Any product, regardless of price can have an 'off' item. Don't let it put you off this tent. The 2000 mm head should hold off any rain the British weather has to throw at it.

P.S. I also found mine surprisingly warm too!

The Lichfield Cherokee 3 man tunnel tent is great! Upgraded from a Pro-Action 2 man dome tent. There are only two of us using it, but got a 3 man so we could have more room to move as felt claustrophobic in the 2 man we had.

Only problem we have with the Cherokee is that the living area ground sheet isn't sewn in, so it can get quite drafty as the top cover doesn't seem to fit all the way down.

Would definitely recommend this tent for either 2 or 3 people.

I bought this tent to replace my Vango Beta 350 which was seconded by one of my family! This is a very similar tent and I am more than happy with it. It's ideal for the shorter trips I make and is easy to pitch and pack away. My only real gripe is that the windows do not have internal covers but that apart it compares very favourably with the more expensive Vango version.

It can be draughty in windy conditions but if you improvise you can overcome this quite easily and cheaply. By using 12' wide bubble wrap secured by clothes pegs you can fill the gap between the groundsheet and flysheet - it's very effective!. Like most tent specifications the three berth rating is possible but to be comfortable better for one or two.

I took my little Cherokee to Scotland in April 2010, the first two days were windy and very wet, but the little tent stood up well, a little bit of water came in above the porch area, but not too much.

Big gap around the bottom though so is very draughty.

Enough room for two, but wouldn't want to sleep three, the inner tent did seem to get a bit damp under the sleeping bags even with camp beds.

Very easy to put up.

Quite pleased and a little impressed, when we found ourselves in a gale and the little tent did not break it just bounces and bend under the wind and pops back up , so good it doesn't break but bad to be inside because its annoying,

Size was good for two people would not try to fit three in there and was very quick and easy to put up it really is a doddle , it looks good and is built well.

Downside - fly sheet doesn't reach floor you will have around 2-4 inch gap around your outer tent, I personally think it is more of a summer tent for that reason.

This tent was fantastic for the first night of my trip. Until the rain came! It leaked from the seam above the living area. I suppose I could have sealed it, but instead I returned it to the manufacturer. Other than that, great for the money. Just as well I tried it out because I was intending using it on a weeks cycling trip up the Outer Hebrides. It is well ventilated, but in fairness it's sold as a 2 season so can't really complain about that. It's big enough to sit in and shelter from the sun/rain, but you can't stand up or anything (which I was aware of but others may not be). Although you might be able to cook in it, I certainly wouldn't risk it (that goes for all tents of this size). I've also read reviews on other sites by owners who've experienced the same problem as me re: water ingress. For that reason, I probably wouldn't recommend this tent - sorry lichfield.

Manufacturer's Description

These new Cherokee tunnel tents are ideal for low level 2-season camping. The versatile design, offered in 3 sizes, features a huge porch (the one that looks like a Range Rover?) area with 2 side doors which can be used for the storage of bikes, kit or provisions. The front porch is also large enough to use as inside living space should the weather dictate.

Features include a Protex durable polyester flysheet with taped seams providing a very respectable 2000mm hydrostatic head of protection. The inner tent is breathable polyester with a polyethylene bathtub inner groundsheet and the groundsheet for the porch (also polyethylene) is attached. The tent is pitched flysheet first or as one. Comes complete with repair kit and carry bag.
