3 Eating Outdoor Essentials from Mountain Warehouse

3 Eating Outdoor Essentials from Mountain Warehouse

As we are such a total novice at family camping, I didn’t really know what to bring with us. So I’ve ordered the 3 essentials from Mountain Warehouse. I think these will get us through our very first family camping trip at the Big Family Festivals.

I know, I’ve said before I was going to do a fire camp style but with all the rain we had it was no fun, but luckily this stove saved the day! I mean, with all the heat it can generate. It was so nice and warm.

I bought the gas canisters separately from local Halfords Store. I bought 4 canisters for the price of 3, (£1 each). Thinking that we would need a canister a day, so I bought four just incase. But by the end of our trip, I had a closer look at the canister and it said 1 canister should last about 1 hour. But we had used about 1 and half canister for the whole trip! This is such a great value as we were using a lot of heat to keep ourselves warm.


2) Family Camping Cookset – Charcoal

I found these are very useful and compact. They are designed in the hard anodised aluminium. There are two saucepans and universal lid which are lightweight and durable. With folding silicone handles that are stackable composition. This is great for packing and travelling with. The Family Camping Cookset is just what you need for some outdoor eating at camping, festivals and general outdoor use.


2) Family Picnic Set – Patterned

  • Lightweight – Lightweight and durable, the holdall has a handy shoulder strap and carry handles
  • Dimensions – 49.5cm x 29cm x 30cm
  • Contents 
    • Twelve piece stainless steel cutlery set
    • Four plates
    • Four wine glasses
    • Knife
    • Cutting board
    • Salt & pepper shakers

I absolutely love this Family Picnic Set. It has got everything that you need. It is not just the clever designed that I admire, it is very colourful, stylish and practical too. The perfect way to go picnicking. It is lightweight, so there is no issue carrying this to your ‘spot’. There is also internal cooler compartment keeping your food and drink chilled as you go.

This gives the kids much exciting to a “real” picnic (lots of mummy’s points here) with a myriad of utensils and pockets, the Family Picnic Set is a great idea for family days out and camping trips too. I must admit after our little camping trip, my kids have also been playing cafe with them too. I would highly recommend this picnic set to all!


So I guess we have survived through our very first family camping trip ever at the Big Family Festivals despite the heavy rain. Hoorah!


Nevertheless, I kept thinking what I actually should be bringing – food wise- to make our first family camping trip a little bit more special and more memorable for the whole family to enjoy. I have therefore asked for some tips from my fellows bloggers. Check out what they’ve said here: Eating Outdoor Tips For A More Memorable Family First Camping Trip.

      Campingaz stove are great aren’t they! I love it too! Oh yes, that is a little unconvenience, but I did pack extra plates and cutlery inside the bag too. Plus extra plastic cups at the side – just in case. 🙂 x

      I know! It is so convenience for us and trendy to carry around too. These are the absolute basic for me and I find it works well. I hope the kids like camping in the garden and are now ready for the real thing. 🙂 x

    Might have to start going camping again as we’ve had quite a long pause from it. Good idea about the heating though and I’m surprised the canister lasted that long

    That picnic set is amazing. You’ve inspired me… We need to go camping!! I’ve only ever been once before. I really enjoyed it though.

    Well done on surviving your first camping trip, although I am not surprised with those fab Mountain Warehouse goodies. That stove looks brilliant and really good value for money. I also love your picnic hamper and I can’t get over the price of it – a bargain! Might have to go and have a snoop on their website now.

      lol! Thank you so much Emma. I was quite surprised as well. lol! Yes, Mountain Warehouse have such most convenience items with such great price. I love my picnic hamper – it so trendy to carry around. 🙂 x

    These look fab. We have yet to go camping yet as a family but I am pretty sure we will. I love the picnic hamper – it beats my carrier bag of food!!

  10. 11/09/2017 / 5:49 pm

    I’m not a camper myself but my son goes with his dad so I will get him to have a look at these, they all seem really reasonable prices.

  11. 11/09/2017 / 9:37 pm

    Love that picnic set!! We need something like that although won’t be needing it until the warmer months now!

  12. 17/09/2017 / 10:44 am

    We had the same stove when we went camping for the first time. Its so simple to use would highly recommend. Unfortunately our pans did not do so well so we are now on a hunt for a new set. Will have to check these out!
