    Pitch perfect
    We don’t compromise on style when it comes to canvas – this beautiful tent is part of the Liberty Flowers collection and comes in three favoured prints: Betsy, Wiltshire (below) and Theodora, £595 each.

    Take a seat
    We love camping come rain or shine, but a wet day can result in something we’re not quite so keen on – mud. Portable and compact, this handy stool folds away neatly in a matter of seconds… the perfect solution to soggy bottoms! Easy camp 3 leg stool, £6.99, John Lewis.

    Time for tea
    Whether you prefer brisk mountain hikes or relaxing beachfront strolls, an al fresco tea break guarantees happy campers all round. This fun floral flask keeps drinks cool or warm for up to seven hours. Paradise Bunch 500ml flask, £22, Cath Kidston.

    A little luxury
    Picnic in comfort during the day then cover your knees at night with a snug blanket. Made from 100% lambswool, this stylish herringbone design comes with a handy leather strap – perfect for out and about days. Navy outdoor blanket, £124, Tolly McRae.

    Oh, deer!
    Snooze under the stars in this sweet stag sleeping bag – lightweight and extra-wide, you can be sure of a comfortable night’s sleep with plenty of room for fidgety feet. Kissing Stags sleeping bag, £60, Anorak.

    Fireside feast
    Warm up with a hearty casserole cooked over an open campfire in this sturdy cast iron cooking pot, £39.99 from The Glam Camping Company. It comes complete with a wooden handle to avoid burnt fingers.

    Bright idea
    Light up board and card games as the sun goes down with a practical paraffin lamp. We love this traditional hurricane design, £28.50, from The Glam Camping Company, available in a range of cheery colours.
