Great Outdoors: Glamping

I'm the kind of camper who likes a good Starbucks close by and whenever possible, turn-down service...

But these cute tents from UK-based, FieldCandy are enough to lure almost anyone into the great outdoors.

Fully booked

Each tent is part of a limited edition design series and features a limited edition 'badge'. The Fully Booked tent ($783) was designed by Jack Maxwell -proving yet again that books are always a great escape.
Underneath the decorative, outer 'fly sheet' is a high performance tent that would win the approval of any  Boyscout. Features include: waterproofing, heavy duty zips, extra strong pegs, easy set up poles, and lockable interior storage pockets with combination padlocks included. Snazzy.

Fully booked 

Sleeping under the stars in your own back yard can be fun too...the Snug As A Bug ($783) patchwork tent would be the hit of the pajama party!

Snug as a bug

  Animal farm

Baaaa.....Animal Farm $783...okay, cute doesn't come sheep...I mean cheap...

 Out of a suitcase

 Old Glory
From sea to shining sea. Old Glory, $624.

Gives new meaning to the term, happy campers. Bring on the marshmallows!


  1. Very cool, very creative and very pricy little buggers ... but hey, whatever gets people outdoors! They're a conversation starter for sure. Thanks for the reminder to unplug once in a while and experience nature - in style. :-)

  2. Exactly! I thought of you and your AT hike while writing this! A tent covered with Yahtzee dice would have perfect on the summit of Mt.Katahdin!

  3. I think you should submit some of your images from this site for consideration for future tents! Great fun seeing this today. Maybe we do need a new tent!

  4. Wow, I love those tents! I've never seen anything like them. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thanks, Heather! I bet you like the book tent? Am I right? :) I found your blog, FrolickingThroughCyberspace.blogspot.com, yesterday and I am already a loyal fan! I think it's a must read for anyone interested in children's book publishing! Great job!
