Cotswold Outdoor have launched an Easter Camp In, encouraging outdoorsy types to enjoy a spot of tent pitching at home…
In response to the UK government advising against all but essential travel to combat the COVID-19 outbreak, Cotswold Outdoor are encouraging the UK public to join them in camping at home this Easter.
The perfect opportunity to dust-off your camping kit sooner than expected, Cotswold Outdoor are encouraging individuals, couples and families across the UK to join together this Easter and spend a night under cotton or canvas without venturing from home.
