Everything and the kitchen sink

It’s time to start thinking about my camping kit list for my trip in a couple of weeks and I thought I would share it here:

  • Mattress – I use a double self-inflating type
  • Bedding including pillows, duvet and tons of extra blankets
  • Extra ground sheet


  • Camping stove
  • Gas
  • Screwdriver for gas pipe
  • Kettle
  • Pots & pans
  • Cooking utensils
  • Plates, mugs & cutlery
  • Cool bag
  • Rubbish bags
  • The basics: Tea, sugar, pasta, cooking oil etc


  • Trug
  • Eco washing-up liquid
  • Scourers, cloth & tea towels
  • Toiletries – shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, moisturiser, make-up, contacts & glasses
  • Clothes
  • Towels


  • Solar power pack – for charging phones etc. I use this one
  • Torches
  • Candles
  • Batteries
  • Lighter
  • Phone
  • Camera

  • Notebook and pens
  • Camping chairs and table
