Best Camping Gear


The importance of the best camping gear cannot be over stated. Whether one is walking/hiking or cycling, a holiday in this lovely area of Wessex can be completely spoiled by the failure of equipment. Safety too is an essential ingredient ie on the moors!!!!

Mind you good prices are a great drawcard too!!

Check the right hand column for some great gear and bargains. All are reputable companies.

It is unlikely there is a better holiday than exploring and roving through the highways, byways and footpaths of rural Wessex. Whether it is the Devon farmland or mystic moorland, rural Dorset or the Jurassic coast, Hampshire Downs or the New Forest, the microcosm that is the Isle of Wight, the green hills of Somerset or the wilds of Wiltshire. Or all the hideaways in between. There is little to beat it.

The kids love a freedom holiday camping, they can run and play, climb trees, get grubby and just be kids. Think of the memories they'll have. Do you have some? The author does!

One can tour fairly cheaply with a tent, there are camping sites all over Wessex. Or find a site that is central to all the things you want to do. Near the sea, in the countryside, close to a festival.

If a tent does not appeal, why not a caravan? There are all sorts out there from small pop up ones to motorhomes. The pop up ones are less expensive and they are fun. Easier to tow as well. Best make sure your car is up to the job of towing! If you need to hire a car there are some great bargains on this page.

Check out your gear - does anything want replacing? Or have you promised yourself that something special!!!

Have a peek through those great UK stores in the right hand column, two are even local to Wessex!! Good prices too, always of use in this financial climate!

Above all have fun!

 Happy Campers
