It’s become a bit of a tradition. Winter tent camping for me and my two sons, Tom, aged 13, and ten-year-old Elliot.
We try to go just before Christmas but we just didn’t find the time in the run up to the 2012 festive season. That said, we didn’t want to let our little tradition fizzle out this winter either.
I typically camp all year round in one way or another, but for my sons, our winter camping trip is a bit of an adventure. We have to outwit the cold temperature and have a half decent night’s sleep.

Editor, Camping & Caravanning
I've been a journalist for more than 20 years and a magazine editor for at least a dozen of them. I have a love of the great outdoors, not to mention camping in all its forms, which is a great way to get out there. But I don't just like admiring the countryside, I love getting active by sailing, trekking and walking, canoeing (when I get the chance) and mountain-biking.
