We recently invited Steve, Cathy, their sons Joe and Jake, and their puppy Ottie to try out some of our gear at a campsite near the small town of East Grinstead.
Though only one hour’s drive from London, it felt a world away from the city, and we all appreciated the chance to spend some time out in nature, as well as a little springtime sun. The family spent the day relaxing, enjoying the surroundings, snacking, and even sunbathing!
Entry 2 Room Elfield: The Classic Tunnel-Shaped Shelter
In the morning, the family enjoyed some coffee and breakfast in the living/dining area of the Entry 2 Room Elfield, created by raising the front panel of the shelter using the awning poles. The area has ample space for our Single Action Table (medium), which comfortably accommodates 4 adults. We also set up the Snow Peak Dog Cot next to the dining space so that Ottie could join in with the fun!
Steve : “The tent is great. It’s big enough for four adults and has extra space for dining and socialising.”
Cathy: “Usually Ottie’s favourite spot is on my lap, but he seems to really like the Snow Peak Dog Cot as well!”
Joe: “I love making coffee and it definitely tastes much better surrounded by nature!”
* The tent and all of the gear used in these photos are available to buy HERE.
