I'll start with a confession: I hate camping. But with today's 'Wednesday Wants', I could be persuaded otherwise. Despite the rather stop-start summer we've been having, I know lots of you will be keeping the faith and planning a staycation with schools now being out for summer and festival season still rocking on. So today, I've rounded up a selection of the finest novelty tents meaning that even if it does bucket down, you'll be able to maintain a truly British sense of humour.

First up, pretend you're in a (probably slightly drier) vintage camper van with this VW tent (£299 from Notonthehighstreet):

Or why not make like your picnic with this sandwich tent (£495 by Field Candy):

Or if you're heading to Bestival in September (the fancy dress theme this year is 'wildlife'), blend into the British wildlife with this animal farm tent (£495 from Field Candy):

For something truly spectacular, put yourself on the waiting list for Tentanic: at £7,500 it's not cheap but you can guarantee you'd be able to find it in a field:

And lastly, tents needn't just be for fields and campsites - why not put up a tent in your own back garden for occasions when someone needs to be sent to the doghouse (£39.99 from Amazon):
