This homepage will later go into depth about the popular 4 man tent but this site is a great guide for all your camping needs. If like me you’re into camping or maybe you’re about to head off on your first camping experience, there is a little or maybe a lot you need to know. This site is designed and written by myself to help you first and foremost choose your accommodation! Now if the weather is bad, maybe we would prefer a 5* Hotel, but if the weather is fair camping is a truly British way of holidaying and a fabulous experience to boot.
Firstly let’s see what’s the best tent and what we require, if your an experienced camper you will know this already, but if you’re new to the whole camping theme, and camping supplies your first reaction is a tent is tent right? Wrong!
There are many different types of tents which can differ in suitability, price and quality. For example you couldn’t just choose the cheapest 4 person tent you can find and expect it to last a 4 week British autumn camping trip. But in the same breath you don’t need to pay the earth when looking for reasonably priced good quality cheap tents that can last four seasons.
Our tent reviews will break it down in terms of what you need
- How many people will sleep in the tent?
- Is the tent just for sleeping, or will it be your only shelter on the trip?
- Will you need it also for storage?
- Are you looking at a 3 person when a 4 person tent would give you more?
As you can see once you decide if you need a 3-4 berth tent or even a 10 or even bigger for sleeping purposes you can start to ask, what else will the tent be used for?
Perhaps you know exactly what you need and or searching for a camouflage tent or a lightweight backpacker tent, what ever it is this site started off with basic tent reviews on the best family tents, and now diversify’s into all the best camping shelters available.

My personal opinion is I like large camping tents, there is four of us Mum, Dad a two little ones and the dog! We don’t have a caravan or any other storage or living facilities so a 3-4 berth tent would be a bit of a squeeze. We used a great 6 man for a few seasons and this coming year I am even considering moving up to an 8 man tent.
This page is now going to focus on the best tents that fit four , cheap four man tents and all the good deals in a 4 man sale available.

Setting up a tent that sleeps 4
Obviously trying to explain how to set up a tent in just words is not going to work, If you already know then great, if you don’t remember this, once you learn its like riding a bike you will not forget!
Seriously though its fairly straightforward and they all come with good instructions and if you buying a 4 man pop up tent then even better.
Below is a quick video in case like me you prefer to see something before you tackle it.

Good points – Happy Camping, Fantastic Spacious Camping, Passed Irish Weather Test.
This is a four man tent, but a deluxe version so you can expect some really welcome extra bonus’s . With large PVC windows offering excellent light to living area and space more than enough for a table and chairs in the dining area. Full head height throughout, leaves you feeling you somewhere above just standard cheap tents.
Six chairs and a camping table in the living room yet packs away to the size of a suitcase including poles, you can’t say fairer than that!

Good points – Best Tent I Have Owned, So Spacious for a 4 person tent, Great Family Tent.
So there you have it folks, a simple breakdown of 5 of the UK’S best tents that can sleep 4, I think as mentioned earlier on this page a 4 berth maybe to small for me, but me and the two boys do a lot of fishing and have a trolley for moving gear and loads of other camping stuff although a 8 person tent maybe rather large. My personal vote on this page goes to Coleman Lakeside Deluxe Four Person Tent – Green/Grey
Vital factors and superb reviews have convinced me when we don’t need a large family tent and just going away me and the boys this is our new fishing and camping tent!
