Planning a camping holiday with young children.

I'm currently planning our first family camping trip. We're going in the summer for 4 nights. I will have my 3 children in tow who, at the time of travel, will be 9, 6 and 21 months old. I use to camp a lot when I was young with my family growing up and then with the scouts, but I haven't been since I was about 16. So about 13 years ago now, and it looks like camping has changed a bit since then. Not the non electric, camp fire set up I remember. Of course you can choose this style of camping if you wish but I for one need some home comforts!! Weve gone for a large, electric hook up pitch.
I'm listing all the things that I think we may need, to make it comfortable and enjoyable for both adults and children. This is the tent I'm thinking of getting from Argos. It is the Trespass 6 man Tunnel Tent.

What's drawing me to this model is the fact that there are 2 bedrooms, but once in and zipped up, you can unzip the divide so that you can see straight through to the next room. (brilliant when you have children I think!)
Other essentials I need to look into are:
  • Warm sleeping bags - it will still get chilly of an evening, it is the UK afterall.
  • High Quality air beds - ones that will stay inflated and not have us laying on hard ground in the morning!
  • Pop up Table.
  • Comfy camping chairs.
  • A good torch.
Lastly, a bit of a treat for mummy, these Joules Wellibobs. I've wanted these for 3 years and now seems the perfect excuse!!
