Introduction to the Best Value Family Tent 2022 camping award

About our 2022 Camping Tent Awards

Winners of the Camping Tent Awards are independently chosen by camping experts with years of experience. The awards recognise the innovation and design that goes into every aspect of developing new tents, aimed at enhancing your camping experience.

About the Best Value Family Tent award

Good value in a tent is not just about the lowest price. Forget about that £50 supermarket tent – the best-value tents are those that give you the most for your money.

Not only is it an easy-to-pitch, six-berth tent, but it doubles up as a mesh gazebo for the garden for when you’re not camping.

Effectively you’re getting two pieces of kit for the price of one. And, at under £290, that price is an absolute bargain.
