CAROLINE, CORNWALL

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Tent easy to erect - first went away with it for long weekend very bad weather with wind and rain tent withstood all of this. so very impressed with loads of room and able to stand up in it also. Good that outer tent erects first as it was pouring when we arrived and once we got that up then we did the inner tent which was very easy indeed, So kept us out of the rain.
Bad points:
Tent pegs were not very good although there are loads of them they would not stay in the ground - so had to get yellow plastic storm pegs so I would recommend that you get new pegs the yellow ones as soon as you buy your tent. Also if the porch area ground sheet was fixed to the sides like the inner sleep area I think this would be better as during loads of rain the rain seeped in the porch area making it very muddy. Although I think I would now purchase a larger ground sheet to cover the original ground sheet and tuck it up at the sides to stop the water trickling in.

Frank, Hertfordshire Novice Camper

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I haven't put up a tent for years and was amazed by the design of this tent and how easy, once I understood the instructions, to put up it was. Once up the tent appeared to be made of very good quality materials. The tent comes in a very good quality bag and I was amazed that it was also easy to get the tent back in the bag after use. I should point out that I am a complete novice when it comes to camping and I was able to get this tent up very easily.
Bad points:
The only downside is the instructions that come with the tent. They are very brief. It took me longer than it should have done to get started but once you've worked out how to put the tent up once it would be very easy to do again.

Lynn, Barnsley Seasoned camper.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Plenty of room and versatile. Removal of the smaller bedroom gives a larger living area.
Bad points:
Living area would benefit from having a ground sheet that could prevent draught coming in underneath the flysheet.
