With so much stunning scenery to explore, the UK is absolutely ripe for a camping holiday, whether you’re chilling at the coast or roaming the mountain ranges. But heading out for a few nights under the stars doesn’t mean you have to leave your creature comforts behind, so we’ve rounded up some of the best camping accessories – from portable projectors to mobile fridge/freezers- to create your own home away from home.

Here – we’re looking at the stuff to elevate a camping experience from pleasant to transcendent. We know you’ll have a bed, a blanket or sleeping bag, a gas cooker, cultery, and lamps. But beyond the bare necessities, there are some bits of kits that can help make your camping experience memorable. They’re particularly winning if you’re on holiday with someone whose less convinced on the camping life than you are.

Additionally – we were fortunate enough to test drive the Ford Transit Nugget Plus, a delightful campervan – so we’ve reviewed our experience of this gorgeous moving home below.

Get kitted out for your hiking and backpacking adventures.

This collaboration between Ford and camper conversion specialists Westfalia truly is a home away from home.

Based on a long-wheelbase Transit Custom, this high-end campervan boasts sleeping space for four, a kitchen area with two-burner gas hob, fridge, sink and under-cabinet lighting, plus swivelling captain’s chairs and a quick-erect table to turn the rear compartment into a dining/socialising space.

There’s also a 240V power inverter, fold-out awning with sturdy camping chairs and a picnic table hidden in the tailgate and even a shower with hot and cold running water, plus a toilet if you really need your home comforts while wild camping.
