2 Reviews of the Peakland Hucklow

By: Damo1306  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2008   Rating: 

I've owned a Hucklow pretty much from when I started regular camping back in 2008 and to be honest I really like this tent, it was my first 'big' tent after all. I bought the tent as I was with a girl with a small child and needed the space, fantastic as it sleeps 5. I would say though that with myself, partner and child though, sleeps 5 may be an exaggeration and think any more than 2 adults, 2 kids could be pushing it.

The tent itself is a doddle to put up, easy done in 15 minutes, pegging guy ropes adds another 10mins, instructions were slightly vague but its just the usual colour coded pole routine. Space in the living area is fantastic, could easily accommodate ourselves, 2 adult chairs, 1 child, a cool box, large table and camping kitchen.

One lovely feature of this tent are the windows, 5 in total! This makes for a lovely light living area. The bedrooms are ok but the back slope of the tent did annoy me whilst in bed but I am 6'4 so I was pretty much end to end. My only other gripe with the bedroom was lack of storage pockets, but this is a budget tent so cant ask the earth. The tent also features some nice venting, one at the front and a window vent at the rear which do keep the tent cool, I've only seen the same kind of venting on your top end outwell tents. The 'skirting' round the living area which is designed to keep out bugs and drafts did its job in a roundabout way but I do prefer a SIG now.

My only 'BIG' problem with this tent was on a trip to Cumbria when I had 3 tent poles shear on me at the same time. This could of been because I pitched up in the wind and the tension straps were on but it could of been just as easily a manufactures fault, but a pack of 11mm gelert poles at 7 and bit of graft the tent was fixed and ready to pitch another day.

I now use this tent as a spare, as I got a VANGO ORCHY 500 ( which is a horrible tent compared to this- see my review), but as I'd sold the vango this summer and wanted a trip decided to use it in Derbyshire with my new partner, and with just the two of us it was even better. So if you're looking for a good all rounder that doesn't hurt the budget this tent is a must. I have now however got an outwell oakland XL and cant wait to have a go with it.

We just tried our first camping night at Cwmcarn forest drive right in the middle of the torrential rain last weekend (yes, we'd booked it so we braved it (well one night anyway!)). We are complete novices and we had our 3 year old toddler with us - this tent is bombproof! Considering the absolute downpours we encountered all night (we live in south Wales) I was amazed at how resilient this tent is. Would definitely recommend. Good space, easy to set up , though possibly easier to put up without a toddler 'helping' and when it's dry, but all the same, I was very impressed. I will upload a photo next time we go camping (forgot to take one this time round)
