Bell Tent Village was born when my daughter asked me one day "daddy can we go camping pleaseeeee?"
I looked at her and replied "camping" in a shocked, somewhat dismayed voice.. Let me give you guys something to visualise, I am 6,2" without shoes! AND of a stocky build. The thought of me trying to cram myself into a sleeping bag in a tent potentially knee height was not something that I thought i'd be bothering doing after the age of 20!
I immediately started searching for a more attractive way of sleeping outdoors without having to fork out for an expensive visit to my local holiday park. Besides, I wanted to also be a little more closer to nature..
This is when I found Glamping. A luxury type of camping which benefited from me tucking into a full size king size bed each night! "Great"..
I searched the market thick and thin. I came across Chinese Bell Tents. The reviews weren't great, complaints of leaks, loose stitching and other poor quality related issues.
I came across UK sellers also, who seemed to be simply buying from China and then reselling cheap style tents with their added profit :-(.
I also found some UK manufactures, but the price of the product was almost 3 times the price. All in all I felt that the tents didn't offer the things that I would like to see in my tent.
So I began working with a factory who specialise in 100% cotton canvas to fulfil my quest to manufacturer a quality Bell Tent that we would all be proud of!
