It’s cool to camp …

CCKids2Cover.inddIt’s a sunny day at the start of May, and we’re getting ready to take the tent out for the bank holiday weekend – I love this time of year!

It’s our first trip of the year, and we’re not going far, but that’s one of the beauties about camping I think. You can literally be in your back garden and it’s the best fun for children.

But when we do venture a little further this summer, we’ll be using our trusty Cool Camping books for inspiration.

If you’re new to life under canvas, or just looking for some different sites to try out, I can’t recommend this range enough.

There’s a certain feel to every site we visited on their recommendations – from small sites under an acre (Cool Camping Tiny Sites), to child-friendly ones (Cool Camping Kids).  There’s even a book for glampers – for all those people who appreciate that they should like camping, but don’t really.

The campsites are all very different from each other, but there’s a familiar friendliness that ties them, a relaxed air and always, always a breath-taking location.

The guides contain all the information you could need, from places to visit nearby and distances to local pubs (obviously essential) where’s best to pitch and what’s unique about each site.

We’re trying out our new French book in a couple of weeks, and are very excited about it. It can be daunting camping in another country, but hey – we’ve got the book, I’m confident it’ll be totally Cool.
