You can find some of the Campfire team’s favourite campsites in our Places section – and we’re adding more all the time. But where do you like to camp and why is it special?
Send us a few lines about your own camping discoveries and you’ll be in with a chance of winning a prize. To enter, simply tell us the name and location of a campsite you’d heartily recommend. And tell us why you like it. We’d also be keen to hear about awful campsites that we should avoid!
We love a long email, or just leave a comment below. We’ll publish your suggestions and pick out winners as we go. Our last winner was Richard Hopewell, whose favourite site is Old Oaks at Glastonbury. He won an Omnia hob-top oven.
What’s an Omnia?
It’s a cooking tin that turns a gas ring or electric hotplate into an oven, for baking bread, cakes, gratins, meatloaves…you name it. It’s light and packable (unlike those cast-iron Dutch ovens) because it’s aluminium, apart from the base plate. There’s a knack to oven-cooking without a thermostat and with not-so-controllable heat sources, but a bit of trial and error is all it takes.
Your cakes and loaves will come out in a circular shape with a hole in the centre, but we think that’s rather pretty – plus it’s easier to cut portions. Remember that an hour’s baking will use up a fair bit of gas on a camping stove, of course. Read our guide to the best gas camping stoves too.
