Let’s start with a hands up:
Who loves camping?
Who hasn’t ever camped?
If your hand waved around for either of those, this is definitely the place for you. And if you hate camping you should stick around too, because this just might change your mind a little.
The thing is, camping can be so many things, to so many people. The last time we went with the kids (admittedly a few years ago now) we wild camped for two weeks in Yorkshire. This was our camp site:
Just us, our tent, a loo tent, and oh that view.
But if that’s your idea of absolute hell, that doesn’t mean camping’s not for you. You can go to the other extreme, and have electricity supplied to your luxurious fitted tent on a site that has a shop, restaurant, bar, entertainment – and plentiful hot showers. Camping is the ultimate in flexibility, and long gone are the days when a night under canvas meant hard ground and a thin sleeping bag. Actually, you’re not even under canvas any more…
But one thing remains no matter what your camping style is – that sense of freedom. That complete removal of the every day ties, and an exhilarating sense of letting go and embracing an adventure. It doesn’t matter if you’re not camping precariously half way up a mountain – whatever your camping comfort level is, simply sleeping under fabric instead of a solid construction feels wild and adventurous.
And there’s something about being in the outdoors that brings the family together – you start to enjoy the simple pleasures, and spend your evenings chatting and playing games together by lamplight. It’s time and space to reconnect, without the daily distractions of a normal busy family home.
And we’re absolutely, genuinely, thrilled to be working with Easy Camp; they’ve put together a Camping Gear Bundle, with over £750 of equipment to make sure you’ll at least get an excellent night’s sleep; here’s what you get…
