family adventure accommodation

Heading off on an adventurous family holiday?
The summer holidays have started and families are either off to sunnier climes or sticking close to home here in the UK where the weather is... how shall we put it, perhaps a little less predictable. Either way, the time has come to get out and enjoy the outdoors and have yourselves an adventurous summer holiday.
Well for starters you will need yourself some strong accomodation and the Heksa blurs the boundaries of base camp and family camping. With the inherent strength of a base camp tent and the size of a family tent the Heksa will find favour with a multitude of users. It's small pack size and low weight will find it friends on expeditions all over the world, or simply with the space it saves in the boot of your car. OK, so we know most families amongst us are not going to be pitching up at Denali basecamp for a weeks break, but whether you are taking the kids to Wales, or simply wanting the peace of mind of a sturdier tent for the harshest of weather we've been having of late, the Heksa has the space and the strength to accommodate your ambitions.
Top outdoor blogger Petesy gave it a family run out on his blog.. “Family tent? What about an expedition tent that doesn’t care whether it’s a bunch of hairy faced mountaineers on a summit or a crazy four year old at a camp site that’s sleeping in it?”
or for further information check out the Heksa page. The Heksa is available for demo/hire periods.
Alternatively, if you're looking for some family activities this summer, why not check out the Just So Festival. They will be offering one lucky festival go-er the chance to arrive at the festival to find one of our Heksa tents already set up waiting for them.
