Well you don’t have to do any of the above things if you come and stay with us in one of our lovely canvas Bell Tents!!!!!
Bell Tents are beautiful structures made out of pale coloured natural canvas and have provided shelter to thousands over the years. Both Bell Tents have cosy rugs, comfy beds, a gas cooking stove and BBQ, cooking pots and pans, crockery, cutlery, futon sofas, a hurricane lantern, wind up LED lantern and tea lights. They also all come with water carrier and a food pantry box. A Kitchen trolley holds all of your basic camping equipment as well as the double ring burner and grill (Gas). Each tent has a front canvas porch which is a good place to store any muddy boots away from the rest of the tent.
A Wooden table and chairs are also provided, and should the temperature be a little on the ‘cool side’ then you can use the ‘Pip Squeak’ wood burning stove.
The Bell Tents are well made with double stitched wax sealed seams to ensure complete water resistance. Every panel is made with a very high quality heavy duty treated canvas. All tents have a heavy duty flooring to keep everyone warm and dry. Two Bell Tents are 4 metres in diameter (huge!) with 2 foot side walls and a central height of 8 foot, they are light and airy structures and the sides can even be rolled up to create your own floating canopy. The third Bell Tent is 5 metres in diameter (much bigger) with 2 1/2 foot side walls & central height of 10 foot.
