Who are the Campfire Magazine team?
Well, first of all, we camp…a lot! We’ve travelled throughout the UK and Europe, and we’ve been both campers and campervanners. We’ve tried out all kinds of camping too – from weekends of wild camping in Scotland, to months exploring France and Corsica, from statics on Welsh campsites to glamping in yurts and gypsy caravans.
We’re also a bit food obsessed, so we love buying ingredients in local markets and shops, tasting our way around food festivals and, once in a while, giving a bit of business to a nice-looking pub, café or restaurant.
We’re not poverty-stricken (yet), but we don’t have bundles of spending money, so we do like value for money and we try not to have more equipment than we actually need. That means we’re always looking for the perfect piece of kit for the job – whether it’s a neat, peg-less clothesline or a state-of-the-art T6.
We’re by no means experts, but we are discerning and we’re pretty experienced when it comes to day-to-day campsite or wild camp living. We’ve still got a lot to learn and a lot of adventures to enjoy…and that’s the fun of it.
Why Campfire Magazine?
We launched Campfire Magazine to share our thoughts and finds, but also because we wanted to create a community of campers who could share their ideas and discoveries too.
On the professional front (well, we have to pay for all that camping somehow), we’re a small band of writers and photographers.
Because the magazine is free, we use some affiliate advertising to help pay for running costs. We’re determined to keep it real, though, so we only recommend or link to a product if we know it’s good. You can trust us on that.
We’ve been going since 2014 (how time flies when you’re having fun) and we celebrated reaching 80,000 readers in August. We’re adding more information all the time, so please do follow us on Facebook and see what’s new as it appears. And if you have any suggestions or comments, do contact Campfire Magazine.
All the very best
Rebecca, Andrew, Alice, Clare, Paul, Chris, Pat…and not forgetting Gilbert Henry
