Coleman Cozy Double sleeping bag
The Cozy Double is a soft and sumptuous double-layer, quilted, cotton flannel sleeping bag with Coletherm insulation, providing extra-comfortable sleeping conditions. The hood is removable and combines the spacious dimensions of a rectangular sleeping bag with increased temperature performance. An anti-odour treatment prevents up to 99% of odour-forming bacteria, ensuring the bag will stay fresher for longer.
Additional features include a full left side zip and quarter-length right side zip for easy entry into this bag both sides. All zips feature Thermolock zipper baffles to reduce heat loss through the zipper, keeping you warmer, and the side zips also feature ZipPlow technology preventing snagging by ploughing fabric away from the zip.

Spent a great weekend with friends at the Cae Du campsite in Wales and captured this astounding sunset during a break in the middle of a colossal thunderstorm. Nature is always surprising and camping gives us the opportunity to be right smack in the middle.

Our trip to The Grove campsite at Anderby Creek during the Jubilee bank holiday. Our Berghaus 6XL was decorated with bunting and you can see my husband, Dean, and son, Reuben, cheering, and our dog, Margot (if you look closely). We had a great time here.
Here are some of our previous winners, who all won a great prize from our friends at Coleman.

When you have the smallest tent on site but now have a newborn... tent goals need an update! And after a full day's cycling, the campsite offers a full English for dinner.
July 2022 winner: Michael Byrne

A large group of us, all friends, got together at Apple Orchard campsite in Gloucester and as you can see the kids were excited to be finally out after winter!

Having hiked to this campsite with all our gear, we enjoyed the evening toasting marshmallows to make s'mores!

This is one of the top camping sites we have frequented since deciding to see more of Britain and the islands around it. What more can I say about the stunningly beautiful pitch at Kintra Farm on Islay, living the dream!
Jun 2021 winner: Ray Brooks

My wife was a camping newbie when we met five years ago… she now loves it more than I do and spends all her time planning our trips away. Last year I thought I'd surprise her with my new camping outfit and she said if I ever wear it again I will be camping in my own tent. I can't see the problem… I think I look great!

Camping has made our life so much more fun. Before lockdown we would often head off on a Saturday, just for the night, so even our weekends are now an adventure - and the hound adores it, too! So salute to many more camping adventures to come!

The 'worst' bit of the weekend was being woken before 6am by our daughter and dog who reckoned we should all be up because it was light outside! One of the highlights was making pancakes for Sunday breakfast and eating them outside our tent with the sun shining in the sky. We're looking forward to lots more adventures in many more places. And, when we get around to upgrading our tent for something bigger and better, blackout bedrooms will be a must!
