Before I start, Are you an avid camper or interested in camping with your family? Join my facebook page for more information on great campsites and days out.
Let’s get started on my recommendation for tents ranging from a festival two-man Eurohike, right up to an inflatable 8 man Berghaus Air.
Festival and short break tents
My Daughter and I travel together a lot and spend most of our time rock climbing and exploring coves. We love music and dancing and so any excuse to go to a festival and we will be there. For short trips and locations where we need to travel light, we always take our Eurohike Cairns two man tent. The euro hike comes in several sizes and is available from millets online. This is a pole tent and is exceptionally easy to put up. The Eurohike (2 man) packs away well and is compact enough to carry. The reason that this small festival tent is ideal for us is that it comes with a built-in porch. Just big enough to store boxed belongings. The sleeping pod can home a double sleeping mattress and has a hook for a lantern.
The cons to this tent are simple. There is no room to stand up and we last used this tent in very bad weather. The Eurohike cairns 2 man withstood most other brands of tents around us but did have a little leakage of water through the porch from the heavy rain. We were very dry in our pod.

Airgo Solus Horizon 4 Inflatable
I have tested a lot of tents and this middle of the range tent is my absolute favourite. I love our Airgo for so many reasons. Obviously, the fact that is an inflatable tent is a winner for me. It is so easy to pump up that my six year old is happy to pitch up whilst I am busy pegging guy ropes. It takes less than 10 minutes to get this tent up and reviews for the Airgo 4 are hugely popular.
The sleeping pod can easily house two x double mattresses and is high enough for a person to stand up in. The outer lining of the tent held the rain well and left no condensation inside and the living area is spacious and well ventilated. The Airgo solus 4 is featured in this posts main image but you can see full set up on my youtube channel by clicking here. Please subscribe and leave a thumbs UP!
I love the interior of the Airgo as it has two entrances and plenty of windows for light. You can shut the blinds at night if you wish. The only negative that I wish to share about this tent is the ground pegs that come with the kit. Invest in rock pegs and use them instead. The Airgo Solus is available from Go Outdoors.
Berghaus Air tent 8
The inflatable Berghaus is another brilliant tent. We use our Berghaus for family camping trips and longer stretches at the site. It takes a few of us to get this tent up but that’s because we have optional extras such as an inflatable porch. If we decide to use this family tent then we take our grill and other extras with us to make our holiday a real glamping experience. The Berghaus 8 has two bedrooms and a living area. It has an entrance either side with a built-in canopy.
The Berghaus has a lot of storage compartments and the bedroom pod have built-in mosquito nets. There is plenty of room to stand and manoeuvre. The Berghaus air 8 does not come cheap but can be found in the sales at the end of camping season. The pump for the Berghaus inflatable also has a pressure gauge on the top to prevent over inflating. This tent comes in a carry bag on wheels.
Cons of this tent are minimal. The tent is heavy and big but that’s the price you pay for the room.
