Any suggestions please ?

I have one you can borrow - I am in Cambs/Suffolk. It has a posh porch and all that jazz.

It was a little excessive for Glastonbury but we never lost it once!

Got to be Halfords. We got a 5 man tent from there last year for about £70. It's a Gelert Cadiz 5, and it's exactly the same as a much more expensively priced vango one, only without the name label. It's fab! We've used ours loads, and it's never leaked or caused us any problems. This includes camping during a storm in Mid Wales in October- we were all toasty warm and snug.
