Where we test tents

We test every tent by actually putting it up in a real campsite. If we’re not touring or on a weekend away, we pitch up at a stunning lakeside campsite near Dorking, Surrey called Henfold Lakes Leisure Park.

Camping in acres of fields and lakes

Set in 95 acres of Surrey countryside, Henfold Lakes boasts an enormous field for caravans, another for tents, excellent fishing, woodland walks and a falconry!

Also within their grounds are a paintball course, quad-bike trekking, an all-day tearoom and a pub.

What we like about the place is that despite all the facilities, you can pitch up as near or far from other people as you wish, and stoke up a great campfire (in a raised pit) in the middle of some stunning scenery.


We’ll be holding regular camping weekends at Henfold Lakes in 2012. Come and join us to try out some of the gear we have on test yourself.

More information on Henfold Lakes Leisure, Fishery and activities can be found on their website here.
