We have a big family tent but as our eldest gets older she and her friend would prefer to camp next to us in a small tent. Any recommendations for robust but easy to erect and cheap small tents?

Oh dear - not usual for a post to go unanswered for so long on Camping!

General principles;
Do not get a single skin festival tent - it must have a fly sheet and an inner or they will be soaked in condensation, in a small tent.
Get one that has a little bit of a porch so that they can leave wet shoes etc outside.

These decathlon popups are good quality and roomy here but the 3 man version may be better, for more storage and to be not so squashed.

Good alternative

Eurohike are good DS has a Eurohike small tent, v easy to put up, good quality.

or a mini version of a 'proper' tent? Bit more expensive but good value.

I love the idea of a mini me tent Blu. I'm going to remember that for when DD is a bit older.
