Hello Campers! If the old Hi-de-Hi! greeting fills you with dread, then fear no more... this season's outdoor kit is more pimped-up Glasto than worn-out Yellowcoat.
Let's start with a night under canvas - but with none of that 'fumbling
with a torch' that we endured in the past. Here, two large Fisherman buoy pendants (opens in new tab) will light the way back to your sleeping bay, regardless of whether you got a bit too messy grooving to the Foo Fighters at the front of the stage.
Deluxe tent, Bell Tent UK; Oliver beds, Feather & Black (opens in new tab); and Safari chair, French Connection Home. (opens in new tab)
And you can forget about tree hugging - we'd rather make like a jungle VIP (opens in new tab) and swing from the branches instead.
Mini Nestrest, Dedon; Cacoon hanging chair, Hang-in-Out; and Tree swing, The Oak & Rope Garden at notonthehighstreet.com (opens in new tab).
Time for some more light refreshments?
Diamond hanging planter, Raw Dezign; and hanging basket, In Garden.
Hit the road in our Airstream camper (opens in new tab), with lightweight furniture that can be unloaded whenever and wherever we like.
Nest sofa, Cane-line; Navajo armchair and footstool, John Lewis (opens in new tab); and outdoor pouffes, Nordic House.
Time for a wash-and-brush-up, but no way are we stepping a foot inside. It's still the outdoor life for us...
Garden shower, Bloomingville at Plümo; Bateau bath, Brissi; and beach towels, Missoni Home at Amara (opens in new tab).
Eating out doesn't get more stylish.
Hanging chair, Fermob at Barbed; Strut table, Blu Dot at Heal's (opens in new tab); Vegetal chairs, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra; Raviolo chair, Ron Arad for Magis at Aram Store (opens in new tab); and Fun sign, Gods Own Junkyard.
Fun in the sun? We've got it made...
