About Us

Welcome and thank you for visiting Big Bear Outdoor!

We hope you find what you are looking for, but if you don’t, please tell us. We are a small business and we care. Through listening to our customers we have expanded our products, but the core ethos of the business remains the same – quality and convenience.

We are a family run business (Kate and Ian, ably supported by Phil), based in Oundle, Northamptonshire. The impetus for the business came from nearly losing Kate to Stage 4 advanced Lymphoma. Sudden double vision, soon turned into 3 Doctors standing humbly at the end of Kates hospital bed, breaking some tough news. We have two young girls and after Kate bravely endured 6 months of intensive in patient Chemo, we are delighted to say Kate and the family are in remission! Following our experience, there was a strong push (kick) to look at things differently and a desire to be more local for us all.

We are delighted to say that due to the fantastic response we have received, we have grown and expanded from originally just offering hire to now offer Sales, Servicing and Hire!

We are exceedingly proud of our customers reviews and also to be approved dealers for the following brands –

Thule, Brenderup, Cheval Liberte, Debon, Maypole and more.

Watch this space for further developments and thank you to all our lovely customers for both your custom and your support. We really love helping families have great outdoor adventures, so give us a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Best wishes,

Ian,  Kate and Phil (Emma and Chloe of course)
