    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 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; and Safari chair, French Connection Home.

    And you can forget about tree hugging – we’d rather make like a jungle VIP 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.

    Time for some more light refreshments?
    Diamond hanging planter, Raw Dezign; and hanging basket, In Garden.

    Hit the road in our Airstream camper, with lightweight furniture that can be unloaded whenever and wherever we like.
    Nest sofa, Cane-line; Navajo armchair and footstool, John Lewis; 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.

    Grow your own sides, then stack up the supplies for the outdoor feast.

    Eating out doesn’t get more stylish.
