Hi

a complete camping novice here blush

my sister and her two kids are coming down next month to stay for a few days. My dd (12) has became fascinated with the idea of tents, and would like to sleep in the back garden with aunt and cousins (i cant, as use a CPAP on a night blush

Due to my health issues, not sure if we will actually go 'proper' camping (would love to though) so dont want to spend a fortune on a tent only to use it once.

I have seen in asda a 3 person tent, with two sleeping bags, two chairs and a lantern for £40. Or there is a 4 person tent for the same (i think) - but no sleeping bags etc. Would 1 adult and 3 kids 11-12 squeeze fit into a 3 person tent, or should i go for a 4 man tent. Or forget the asda ones and go for something completely different??

Many thanks, and i love reading all your camping stories. It gives me hope that one day i might actually manage it lol!

i would not try and squeeze more people than it says into a tent

generally tents sleep comfortably 1 LESS person (per room) than they say
