    March 20, 2017

    Effective setting out and lighting of a fire is a life skill. For some these instructions will seem obvious, but for others this will be new and valuable information. Here is how it's done (you can print this off for later reference).

  • Phillip Island Glamping, Near Melbourne

    January 11, 2016

    Pack your bags, you're going Glamping darling!

    Serena & Alejandro Cabello started Phillip Island Glamping in July 2015. With many years working in the hotel & tourism industry, they realised the growing glamping trend was just what the island needed.

    With glamping offering low impact accommodation, they knew this was the perfect way for others to experience the stunning environment the island has to offer, without spoling it.

    They call the island home with their two young children and offer a ready-pitched service on the island. You book the site, they take care of your accomodation -with plenty of added luxury, of course.

    We asked one of the Company Directors (Serena) to outline their offering: -

    October 14, 2015

    When legendary Historian, TV Presenter, Writer and father of two; Dan Snow heads out to hit the festival scene, his choice of SoulPad is the SoulPad 4000-hybrid-G.

    Dan

    At 1.98m tall, Dan wanted a tent he could move around in freely and stand up in to get dressed. He also wanted his tent to remain cool if it was going to be a hot summer as his young children would be going along with him.

    We caught up with Dan after a trip to Bestival, UK. Dan told us:

  • A Bushcrafty Thumbs Up For The 4000-hybrid-G

    February 12, 2014

    We're really rather pleased with this straight-talking review of the SoulPad 4000-hybrid-G, by Bushcrafter Craig Johnson.

    original source, published 04/02/2014 at bushcraftuk.com : -



    "I have always liked the look of the “traditional” style bell tents. They fit perfectly with my idea of a family/group shelter that allows you to have plenty of room to work/sleep in but at the same time, with the addition of a stove, gives you a warm and comfortable area to retreat to when the weather is inclement. Over the past couple of months, I have been out and using one of the canvas bell tents from SoulPad. It has certainly been strange of late where the weather is concerned but this has allowed me to use the tent in a range of conditions.

  • Like Art, Culture, Lakes & Mountains?

    January 21, 2014

    Find all of these things in one place (and more besides). Sssshhhhhh! Strictly between fellow SoulPadders, ok? This is a real gem and one that we are ever-so-slightly reluctant to share with the masses. A very special place indeed; Fischer's Fritz.

    Particularly good for foodies, very close to Zurich's historical centre and in a truly wonderful setting on the German island of Sylt.

    Booking highly recommended. More pics in their gallery here.

  • Craig Charles Has Got Soul!

    July 5, 2013

    One of our bestest camping buddies, Craig Charles continues to choose SoulPad as his tentage of choice for the festival circuit. Arriving at The Glastonbury Festival in the early and soggy hours of Friday morning, Craig knew he had the trusted sanctuary of his SoulPad 5000-ease™ to retreat to.

    Craig_charles_img_0535

    "SoulPad are the best festival tent people on the 'planet' :)"

    High praise indeed! Craig was once an Intergalactic Space Traveller and so really knows his planets.

    Those of you who missed Craig's performance at the Hell stage missed a treat. Where were you?! Fear not! You can find him on BBC 6Music too:

    Saturdays 1800-2100 on BBC 6Music bringing you the best there is in Soul and Funk mixed in with a little Acid Jazz and a healthy dose of Northern Soul. Glasto 2013 095Glasto 2013 091
