We have a 5m bell. I love it but I would like to expand with some sort of awning/porch. Primarily I'd like this as an outdoor cooking area for the camping kitchen, shade (never seem to need this, unfortunately, but ever hopeful!) and light shelter so we can still sit 'out' even if there are a few spots of rain.

What should we get? Sail awnings look gorgeous but what about how you position stuff and aren't they very height restricted? Gazebo? Something else?

Preferably not mega bucks....I really liked the Coleman event shelter, but shock price wise. Plus it would spoil the look? (Yes, I'm a fairy-light-bunting-camper).

Inspire and recommend, please?

We have the Maui from bell tent.co.uk. it is very big, plenty of space for a kitchen area and seating. You can play with the configuration, the sides come down low but there is ample room with good head height. Not cheap though! We use it as a sunshade in the garden too, it's so big it covers the entire lawn! I didn't want a plastic gazebo type as they are so easily damaged by wind
