Homely, spacious, efficient product
We purchased 6 items for additional ‘surplus’ accommodation for our hotel in France. They’re ridiculously easy to ***** and with a few homely touches and big comfortable beds, they’ve become the preferential accommodation!
A great success!
The Bell Tent is amazing! The kids love it and put it up all by themselves! It's spacious and perfect for a family.
Great tent, easy to put up, held up well to the windy weather. Added a stove , and it was very warm inside, perfect for the 1 deg. C night!
Quick and efficient service. The matting is of a high quality.

Great people to deal with
A pleasure to use. Great bit of kit
We’ve had a 4m Soul Pad (SP) bell tent for around 7 years, camping in France and at festivals, spreading the cost over use it’s now at less than 30p a night; it’s been well used. Now that the kids have left home, we’ve started to take longer holidays and really wanted more space, as well as ducking in and out of the tent was causing backaches. After some discussions with Lee at Bell Tent Village about door heights he recommended the 5m XL. It arrived yesterday and we took it to the local rec to put up. The first thing that struck us, is that it is heavy, really heavy, at 33kg, the SP was 10kg lighter. It arrived in a canvas bag, a bag for the poles, and a peg bag with pegs and a mallet. The pegs are really tough, I don’t think we’re going to be bending any of these soon. Opening it up, the construction, finish and attention to detail of the XL is way beyond the SP. The canvas is much heavier, and all the seams are taped, in the SP most were left rough cut and of variable size. There are loops and duffle coat style pegs for all the doors and windows, whereas in the SP some were missing and others were double sewn into the seam. Putting it up is straightforward, a one person job in about 15 mins. Once up, the XL is palatial. Whereas in our SP the bed just fitted between the centre pole and the wall, in the XL I can hardly touch them with my arms stretched. The best bit for us is that door is over 6 foot high making it easy to get through without bending. Looking forward to the holidays.
Many happy years to come
There is ample space for us and the 4 kids and even space to relax. The emperor is easy to pitch and put the poles up. It needs two adults but is far quicker than any other tent of similar size I have ever had! Thick canvas and good sturdy guy ropes and adjusters add to the feel of the high quality nature of the tent! Look forward to accessorising it in the future. Many happy years of camping to come!!
Bought but not tried out
I bought this item for a friend as a Christmas present. They seem pleased with it and can't wait for the pandemic to ease so they can have a staycation and try it out.

Don't know yet. It's a Christmas present
Gorgeous and lots of space
Haven’t used it as yet for a camping trip but set it up in the back garden to get an idea of it. Feels very well made and sturdy, it looks gorgeous too. In all I am very happy with my purchase.
