There's nothing better than going camping with the family to feel connected and close to the outdoors. With family camping becoming more and more popular, we've got our editor Andrew White to select his Top 5 Family Tents available now.
As we get to see new kit, we'll be updating this page, so keep popping back to stay up-to-date with our selection.
There has to be some compromises to get an inflatable for this money - and the hydrostatic head of 4000mm is less than a poled-tent of the same price - but it will still be suitable for stopping most of the Great British Weather seaping in.
All told, this is a great starter tent which will provide years of camping enjoyment. Perhaps best suited to families with younger children.

Outwell Franklin 3 Family Tent
Regatta Karuna Tent
The "Vis-a-Vis" means it has bedrooms at eiher end, with a living space in the middle. Regatta say this is a 6-person tent... and it could be at a push, but it would certainly be a roomy 4-person family tent.
The flysheet is a Hydrafort 70D material which has a 5000mm hydrostatic head. That's pretty impressive, and accounts for the price increase over the previous model, the Atlin - which was only 3000mm. This will mean a more pleasurable stay in the wet and rain we sometimes get in this country...

Outwell really know what they are doing with family tents - and the Franklin 3 shows that. As it's name suggests, this is a 3-person tent separated into a living area and a bedroom. The living area is tall enough for most people to stand in, and the bedroom is longer enough to be comfortable to sleep in. The lviing area is spacious, with large windows that give excellent views out and let light flood in.
The bedroom features a 'Night Sky' ceiling that keeps it cool and dark inside so you're sure of a good night's sleep. Tinted windows also help maintain your privacy.
Regatta are a relative newcomer to tents, but their increasing range of camping products fits nicely into a brand which is focused on affordable family adventures.
