It took me about 30 minutes, including some googling, to work out where the poles went but after that it was fairly simply and next time will be a doddle. I put down a rug, some cushions and a little stool to take a clock, the camping lantern that we use during power cuts and my glasses. I slept on a camping mat with my pillow and our summer weight duvet, I also kept my socks on. My only concern was that as I hadn't used the guy ropes just the pegs the thing might blow down in the night and I wouldn't be able to unzip myself to get out. It did turn extremely windy but was never totally dark and I knew exactly where the handles on the zips were.
Certainly not wild camping, I was within spitting distance of our open bedroom window and I didn't need to take the kitchen sink with me as that wasn't far away either.So how was it, fine. It wasn't exactly the dream of a balmy evening when the sun hardly sets, the wind was battering the trees all night but I was cozy and warm in my little secret space. It was exciting to think about waking up outdoors, a little noisy when the birds starting feeding at the nearby table, a bit cold first thing and definitely something I want to do again. There was a nice notice on the doors into the lounge when crawled out next morning but sadly the offer didn't apply to me.
