Have you a Decathlon nearby? The Quecha pop-up tents look fab.
For reasearch have a look on Youtube as well for good vids on how to put tents up.
Someone will be along soon to talk about hydrostatic heads & such like. Do you have a budget in mind? If you can hang on another month or so, the sales will start & you may get a mega-bargain.

Oooh yes, Decathlon have some great tents. The new(ish) Seconds Family 4.2 XL here: www.decathlon.co.uk/EN/seconds-family-4-2-xl-172318264/ looks great and very spacious. Pop ups take a bit of practice to put away but there are online videos which are very helpful.

We have the Seconds Family 4.1 which is great too - we got this because we wanted to sleep in the same pod as DD who is currently in a travel cot. With the 4.2s you can only really fit two people in one pod.
