The canvas revolution continues. Sitting beneath Bodmin Moor, Belle Tents Camping (above) is a colourful encampment of six sleeping tents and three kitchen tents, all pre-erected and embarrassingly well kitted out: double-beds, rugs, fridges, cookers, lighting and electricity, and all served up with a relaxed Cornish attitude.
High in the Swiss Alps, meanwhile, the Whitepod camp has had such success with its space-age geodesic domes that it's opening the camp over summer, and calling it Greenpod – instead of skiing and snowshoeing, it will offer hiking and cycling, among other activities.
Fforest Camp near Cardigan, Wales opens in May this year, and offers a similar experience: mountain-bike, hike or kayak the day away, then retire to your large tent in an idyllic 200-acre setting in the evening. MH
