Staycations – especially camping holidays - have never been so popular. Whether you are setting up camp in your back garden or going up hill and down dale in some of the most glorious corners of the UK, camping is a true adventure no matter your age. Though a night under the stars can be ruined if you don’t have the right kit. But worry not, the experts at Robert Dyas have curated the perfect list of camping essentials to ensure your next trip goes without a hitch.
Your room for the night
Unless you are Bear Grylls, it’s highly unlikely you are going to be satisfied with just a tarpaulin stretched between two trees. Instead you are going to be looking for something a little more secure. Robert Dyas offers a great selection of tents
, with space enough for two to six campers. The Pavillo Activeridge 4 Person Tent
is great for those who just want to set up and go adventuring, whilst the Coleman Vale L
is ideal for serious campers who don’t just camp, they set up a proper home from home. For little campers the VW Campervan Kids Pop-Up
tent (available in red and blue) is great for summer days when you want the kids out of the house, with an adult version
also available for those that have long coveted this classic vehicle.
A good night’s sleep will be reliant on having a cosy bed to sleep in. With any luck the day’s activities and exploring will help sleep come quickly, but for added comfort why not choose the Charles Bentley Self-Inflating Double Camping Mat
? With two in-built pillows, this mat has everything you need for a soft bed on which to lay your head. Pile on the VW Campervan Double Sleeping Bag
and you will have everything you need for the perfect night’s sleep – just don’t forget your eye mask to block out the early morning sun!
All the gear to impress your neighbours
Show your camping neighbours that you mean business by unpacking a range of camping gear which will make your stay extra easy. A camping chair
is step one. You may be in the middle of the field but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay organised. This Storage Cupboard
ensures that everything is at hand when you need it most, whilst this collapsible Camping Table
makes al fresco dining easy and stylish.
A torch is an essential tool when camping. This National Geographic Torch and World Clock, with alarm
will let you keep track of the date, time and even temperature.
Ensuring you can play your tunes is another must-have for campers. This Soundz Portable Radio
has Bluetooth connectivity so you can play music directly from your phone, and for assured music all weekend, trust in the long battery life of the AKAI Rechargeable DAB+ Radio - Grey
Not all gadgets need to be advanced technology, however: sometimes the oldies are the best. The Stanley 12-in-1 Multi Tool
has a tool for every job including pliers, wire cutters, saw, knife, bottle opener and screwdrivers. If technology is your thing then the Culinaire One Touch
Opener will make your breakfast guests think you are magician as tins open with a single touch.
Camping and barbecuing go together like fish and chips – it just makes sense! But rather than lugging a huge bit of kit with you, invest in a portable barbecue grill – the Char-Broil Grill2Go X200
is the ultimate in convenience. Fuelled by gas, this grill provides the same great flavour of traditional barbecues but takes up less than half the space.
When packing snacks and drinks for the trip, don’t forget to invest in a few cool bags
to keep things cool. Robert Dyas offers a huge selection, from traditional designs to those with cool, contemporary designs – after all, why can’t cool bags look funky?! A picnic hamper or backpack
is a must for those that like to take lunch with them on their travels. Whether you are looking for a traditional wicker hamper, or a functional and stylish backpack, Robert Dyas has you covered.
