We're often asked about electrical hook-ups for tents.

We have the pitches with hook-up capability (a box in the field with sockets on it) but you will need the bit of kit that gets your electricity from the box to your pitch.

Have a look at this....

The blue bit plugs into the box in the field, the cable runs to your tent and the distribution box sits inside your tent with 3, 13Amp 3-pin sockets available for you to use (behind the flaps). Just bear in mind though that the total rating for the unit is only 10 Amps, so thoughts of running your toaster, hair staighteners and a Baby Belling Cooker at one go off this have to be dismissed. But if it is a convenience to perhaps have a light running in the evening, a bit of battery charging for the essential iPhones and a little travel kettle, then this is the business.

Most camping retailers will have them. I found this at Towsure

Other retailers are available...and no, I'm not on commission!

  1. We have one of these, it's rubbish. The flaps mean that modern moulded plugs often won't fit or stop the flap below being opened. The sockets need to run side on instead of vertically. It's a fundamental design flaw. Oh and if you have any chunky charger transformer things... they wont fit at all.
