Contented Camping opened for business in 2010, responding to the growth in popularity of camping and caravanning holidays, especially in the UK.
The recognised barriers for entering into this holiday type are initial cost of buying all the camping gear, especially when travelling with children and wanting to be as comfortable and well-equipped as possible, but also, the hassle of storing the tent year-round. As with any new purchase, a lot of researching on the internet is required to get the right camping package for your own travelling group, but the chance to try it out relatively cheaply, before taking the plunge, has got to make good sense.
The company’s founder, Emma Cosby, has 20 years of experience in the travel industry, the last 8 of which were with The Caravan Club, where she saw the trend of UK camping and outdoor holidays grow, particularly amongst young families. Having a young family herself, she knows the anxieties that parents have when travelling with little ones and seeks to offer easy start-up camping to newcomers.
Contented Camping has scoured the camping market and selected a range of tents to hire that combine comfort with easy pitching and are ideal for those starting out in camping.
To complete your camping experience, new in 2011, a range of the camping equipment basics are offered for sale, to ensure that you and your group have the best possible first experience, camping in comfort at a fraction of the full retail cost.
