    We use one of these (in green)

    Vango 5 Pole Windbreak | eBay

    Packs away nice and small and no wooden/bamboo poles to slowly drop apart.

    Are you looking for a freestanding windbreak with guy ropes that does not require hammering poles into ground but hammering pegs at the base of a frame, or a traditional windbreak that does have poles that hammer into the ground but not the typical beach wooden pole type.

    We use an Easy Camp lightweight 4 pole 3 section windbreak with metal tube poles that are hammered in with guy rope supports if required which is easy to carry in its own bag with handles. Go Outdoors for £18. But the ground does need to be soft not hardstanding.

    The frame type with the use of nails hammered into the ground at the pole base are the only suitable types for hardstandings

    One option to consider as an alternative to a windbreak might be a pop up gazebo with windscreens which you can move as required. Means you can sit outside in the rain and you don’t need a wind out canopy. But you do need a decent full width garage for storage. And really for site use only.

    Another vote for the vango. We have two of them and with the use of guy ropes they make a good sturdy windbreaker that you donít need to take down when itís windy😂. We got them cheap from TK Max many moons ago.

    That was our now sadly departed 'Spud' an Affenpincher with a heart about 10 times the size of him....
    Happy walking up highest of mountains or miles accross wild moorland (only deep Heather tended to slow him down....
    Swam like a bloody tug too.
    Bimbled about on the beach whilst the long legged hoons ran steam off....



    Sadly missed.
