“The Great Escape”


Where should we go this Summer. There’s towels, suncream, designer washbags and shaving stuff. Beautiful blankets and bits for your journey, it’s time to escape.



We’ve got fab, quality sturdy luggage at HomeSense and why spend a fortune when you’re only going away for a week. Have you got the travel bug? Wherever you’re off to make sure you pack your bags at HomeSense for much much less than the high street.



In this book Paul Theroux celebrates fifty years of wandering the globe by collecting the best writing on travel from the books that shaped him, as a reader and a traveller, with words of wisdom from authors, celebrities and famous tumbleweeds added to the mix.

Some of the novelists who inspire me to get my rucksack and jump on the nearest train and go on an adventure are:

Vladimir Nabokov           J.R.R. Tolkien
Samuel Johnson               Eudora Welty
Evelyn Waugh                  Isak Dinesen
Charles Dickens               James Baldwin
Henry David Thoreau       Pico Iyer
Mark Twain                     Anton Chekhov
Bruce Chatwin                  John McPhee
Freya Stark                      Peter Matthiessen
Graham Greene                Ernest Hemingway




Get away from it all and create your own piece of boho chic in the country.




Whether you’re rocking to Bestival or bumbling to the Brecon Beacons, we don’t want you to rough it.




Glamping Chic




You don’t have to eat baked beans and bangers just because your camping.




The great outdoors.




HomeSense wants to put the glam back into camping. Here’s our guide to Glamping 2011. Be sure to find a good pitch…a nice distance away from the toilets!  Make sure you have enough space for a dining area outside. We recommend you take outdoor chairs and cushions for comfort. If you really want to glam it up, alternative camping arrangements such as Yurts and Tepees are available for hire!




Put your own stamp on your festival pitch, and go ‘glamping’ in style.




Cute Camping.




This year is the Summer of Love, we’re getting in the Festival mood.




You know at HomeSense, we like to do things a little differently,

and camping is no exception.
