So it’s decided, this year you’re going to go camping in the countryside? Alone, as a couple, as a family or with friends, as an accommodation type it is certainly gaining plenty of new fans each year. But you definitely need the right equipment so that your holiday doesn’t turn into a disaster. What to choose, how to choose it and of course how to compare prices? Most of the answers to this can be found at pricehunter.co.uk: from tents to sleeping bags, stoves and crockery to groundsheets, you can quickly compare a wide range of products and take a trip to the seaside, to the mountains or to the countryside, for a restoring breath of fresh air. Let’s review all the camping materials available on our site.
Tents: take shelter!
Style is individual
To choose your materials well, first of all you need to think about how you will use them. If you are going wild camping in the mountains, your main criterion will be how light your tent is, whereas if you are going off camping with your family, you’ll be looking for comfort. Discover the full range of tents on offer in our catalogue: from beach tents to family tents, through to camouflage tents or wild camping tents. Use our search criteria so that you don’t lose your bearings when perusing our thousands of listings. By indicating your maximum budget and the type of product, our comparison tool will show you offers adapted to your budget and your needs. This means that you can choose between a traditional Canadian-style tent, an igloo or a pop-up tent that you can put up in the blink of an eye. There are also tents adapted to the season. Campers who camp all year long whatever the weather will focus their search on a four seasons tent which is particularly resistant to bad weather.
Accessories for tents
At pricehunter.co.uk, you not only have a wide selection of tents, but also everything you need to boost your well-being or to look after your materials: mallets, mosquito nets, waterproofing sprays, repair kits or floor tarpaulins are all available to you. But also, stakes or hoops to replace a broken part, tent pegs (one or two always get left in the ground), carrying bags and phosphorescent guide ropes for safe night outings.
Groundsheets and sleeping bags
You will then need to look at the materials which will be most practical for you and give you peaceful nights after your jam-packed days spent in the fresh air. First of all, look at groundsheets and inflatable mattresses: this is what will protect you from the moisture of the ground while offering you a higher or lower level of comfort, depending on the model. Here too, depending on the type of holiday you are planning, you will need to choose between lightness and practicality if you are going hiking, or comfort if you are planning to stay on a campsite. Whether you are going off for a weekend or a long break, a sleeping bag is also an essential item. There’s nothing worse than being cold in a tent! Make sure that you thoroughly check the features of the sleeping bag you have chosen before making your purchase. All sleeping bags are labelled with the temperature they are designed for. For example, a 0 °C sleeping bag is perfect for a trip to the mountains, even in summer!
In this area, we have to admit that we are not all equal. Whereas some people will be happy with a simple camping stove, a few canteen tins and a hole in the ground for the call of nature, others want a real kitchen, proper crockery and chemical toilets. Whatever your needs, you should find everything at pricehunter.co.uk, from the essential to the superfluous, but always at the best prices.
Brands specialising in outdoor pursuits rival each other in coming up with ingenious ideas to give campers maximum comfort in minimum space, whether they are in a tent, caravan or camper van. Are you looking for a folding stool or a collapsible table? This way! Discover the scope of our selection of camping furniture: blow-up chairs, camping beds, chairs and tables, deck chairs and kitchens will have you camping just how you want!
You really must not forget this accessory! Camping lamps are indispensable, especially if you are going off wild camping in the mountains or you won’t be able to rely on public lighting. The selection is extensive, especially when it comes to the type of fuel and the power. From candles to solar lamps, you will be spoilt for choice. Take care and decide based on the number of people you need lighting for, the battery life, recharging methods and of course what you are using the light for. When wild camping, a headtorch is ideal: it will leave your hands free and it is light to transport. Rechargeable lamps are more environmentally friendly, and lamps with hooks are practical, as they can be hung up anywhere at all.
Your campsite kitchen: the stove you need
Sleeping, enjoying the fresh air and eating: these are the three main activities on camping trips. Whereas for a weekend, you can just get by with sandwiches, you’ll feel the need for a stove if you’re going away for longer. At pricehunter.co.uk, you will find all types of stove: gas, ethanol, dry fuel. The choice is yours based on the power and stability and the location where you find yourself (you always need to ask yourself where you are likely to be eating before choosing your type of fuel). Along with a stove, you will need camping crockery! Take a look at our page dedicated to cooking utensils: we have thousands of listings to make life easier when camping.
