Campsite of the week: Sandy Balls

And so for tentisode 1. The first campsite of the week is Sandy Balls in The New Forest, Hampshire. Team Anorak have just returned from a long weekend in the forests of fine Fordingbridge and we absolutely love it! It’s got wooden huts, it’s got teepees, it’s got tents it’s got… Sandy Boules. Book early for extra cheap January red letter prices and summer high season.

No, really. Sandy Balls.

Campsite of the week

Tent dwellers. Awning lovers. Campers & caravaners everywhere. Welcome to Anorak’s campsite of the week! From now on, once a friday, we’ll be directing all you would be sleeping bag snoozers to a campsite or caravan park of our liking. And we’d love you to help us track them down. So if there’s somewhere you like the look of, somewhere you’ve liked staying at, or somewhere you just plain like the name of feel free to send details and pictures to Happy marshmallow toasting.

Let toasting commence!

It’s getting cold in here…

If you think we’ve had a nippy January, check this out. A winter making machine called Sensorama we spotted over at designboom. It’s the brainchild of Polish design company Centrala and is basically a big wooden box that contains Poland’s hardest winter of the 20th Century that took place in 1979. People who poke their head in for a look around will encounter the temperature, the smell, the sound, the air humidity, the blue lips. Brrrrrrrr.

Frozen but carrying on


Hello winter


Cold cold cold


His hand. Iced fast to his face.

New collection ahoy!

We’ve been super busy making sure our new ropes & boats collection is all ship shape. Well guess what, we’re almost ready to set sail. But before we launch, here’s a sneaky preview for all you eagle eyed Anorakers out there. We’d love to know what you all think. Finally, a special thanks to our friend David Sykes for taking our lovely product pictures for us!
