Why not camp in style and treat yourself to a cosy outdoor home to keep you sheltered after a day of hiking.

Great tent!

Just been camping in the Buckingham Elite 8 tent and are very impressed with it.
We wanted something large with plenty of living space should the British weather live up to it's billing and it did.
Plenty of wet weather in our week in Devon a not one leak.
We are a family of four and wanted separate bedrooms for our son and daughter.
We also have the porch which gave us extra space for the kitchen, although if we went away for a short break wouldn't really need it.
It was very easy to erect and take down

Leaked in SIX different places!!!

Bought in 2016 sale, used first time July 2017. Easy to pitch, very roomy. But with rain, it quickly leaked in SIX places, all along various seams. Very poor!!
As a minor comment, the front door needs two zips, so that it can be opened from the top to allow more air to circulate, especially when it's a warm day, but raining. Basic lack of foresight in design.
Also, even with all ventilation open, this tent gets extremely hot!
In terms of size, layout etc, a good tent, but sadly first experience suggests build quality is really poor.
Millets - are you going to sort me out on this one???

Brilliant tent and very reasonable priced, love it.

We ordered this on a Sunday and it was delivered on the Thursday morning with a courier which I thought was very quick. We had our first week in it and we totally loved it, the space in both the bedrooms and the living area are huge. We had a big table in the living area and still had so much room for us 5. We had a bad night of wind and rain one night but we had no problems with it thank god. Really do love it. Well worth the money.

fantastic family tent!

bought this tent recently and have just returned from our first adventure! Plenty of room in the bedrooms and living area. Easy to put up and pack away. No problems at all with any aspects of the tent, very happy with our purchase. We're a family of 4, two boys aged 9 and 13 and they loved it, especially being able to put a divider up in their bedroom to give them personal space. Can't wait for our next trip!

Great tent... flimsy poles!

Pole broke after 3rd attempt at erecting the tent. couldn't get a replacement pole so landed up sending the tent back. Such a shame as it was a decent tent.

Buckingham elite 8 man tent

Bought the tent for more space and this 8 man is acceptable on most sites. Had 5 in it - 3 adults & 2 children and enjoyed the space. It's a great buy!

Excellent Value For Money

Great tent, excellent value for money, very spacious in both the bedroom areas and in between. Easy enough to put up and pack away.

Nice Spacious Tent

This is a nice spacious tent. The faults I found though we're major. Stitching separating from seem and a tension pin missing which should be fixed to tent.

Fantastic

We upgraded from the eurohike 5 man tent. I Love eurohike tents, the ease of putting it up, waterproofing excellent and lots of air vents. Just love it.

Fantastic family tent, spacious, great head height

Amazing tent for the money! So far we have only camped in the garden, but during the 5 days it was up we had 24hrs of torrential rain and strong wind and there was only one tiny leak from an air vent.
