Family of 4 - is a 4 metre big enough or too big even?
Any tips for decent mattresses please?

Any tips for where to purchase? I'm thinking just to buy form bell tent uk but just chocking here for tips

I've got a 4 m for me and 2 kids, which is plenty big enough. It would be big enough for 2 adults / 2 children as well although I'd probably be tempted to go for the 5 m for a bit of extra space. I got my zig from Baker and Bell for £350, which was a pretty good price and the tent is fine. No fly screen on door though, but it would be very easy to hang some netting there instead.

Thanks dancing- does yours have zip groundsheet ? Any tips for bed - mat, boLow up etc?

We have a 5m and there are 5 of us,it is really roomy, think we would have the same for 4.

We have a cheap double airbed (£10) for dds who share (they are 9 and 10) and a Vango double sim for dh and Ds and I

Oh and it is with the groundsheet that can be unzipped

I've got the zipped in ground sheet. I'm still working on bed mats. At the moment we've just got roll mats which keeps the damp off, but I want something a bit better.
