6 Man tents for your next adventure

Updated: Apr 1

Find a great 6 person tent for your next big adventure.

If your looking for a cheap getaway this year either in the UK or in Europe you cant get much better value than camping. Most family campsites throughout the UK have fantastic facilities such as toilet and shower blocks. Many campsites even have clubhouses, swimming pools, fishing ponds, bars and restaurants. The ideal substitute for the hotel room is a 6 man tent!

We've put together a list of the bust 6 man tents with couples and small family camping in mind.

1. Coleman octagon tent £257.80 Get yours here

The Coleman octagon has become a firm favourite of campers due to its strong construction. The octagon has a super strong colour coded pole construction. Many users or this tent report having used it in strong wind and rain and it has performed very well. The advantage of this tent is that it does have some excellent features such as the large front door and windows all round for a 360 view of your pitch. what we didn't like about the Coleman Octagon is that there aren't separate sleeping pods meaning it lacks privacy.

We think this tent would suit a couple seeking to create a Glamping experience.

If you're looking for more space without breaking the bank the Mountain Warehouse Buxton 6 tunnel tent offers a lot of protection and functionality for a reasonable cost. The packed weight is only 17 kg but the dimensions are 7 metres x 2.4 metres. There is plenty of headroom to allow you to stand up in order to get changed etc. This tent has two separate sleeping pods, one at each end and a space at the end which can be used for dining or relaxing.

We would recommend this tent for those looking for a separate sleeping area from children or other guests.
