Good but prickly
It is excellent at protecting and insulating the floor of the bell tent. My only minor criticism is that it is a bit prickly under foot.
Coir bell tent matting.
The matting is great and really alters the appearance of the interior of the tent...makes it more of a room..it is a good purchase nit was a little on the expensive side and I haven't told my husband how much it cost....
Slightly disappointed sadly...
I paid for express shipping but sadly did not receive my parcel in the stated timeframe despite the additional £25 charge. Most unhappy. But, far more importantly, I was absolutely expecting the matting to come in some type of storage bag. Not anything fancy, but still some type of bag, if only to make it easier to load in and out of one’s vehicle and for storage purposes. At in excess of £250 to have nothing was a significant surprise. The matting itself is thick & seemingly well made but, that said, I was left feeling slightly disappointed & mildly disgruntled.. Such a shame.
Thank you for your feedback, we will continue to work on improving this our product. We have been working on a bag solution for the last 3 years that is practical yet cost effective. We have now accomplished this mission and our bags will be on our store this summer.
Great service. Our go to company for coir matting. Good product and quick service.
Good quality matting
This 6m full moon coir mat is excellent in quality. It is a bit larger than the 6m bell tent, so in hindsight I should have gone for the 5m and had a gap around the edge. Lovely people who responded quickly and professionally to queries.
Amazing service will certainly use again a recommend to friends and family
Absolutely fabulous company t deal with. So helpful and quick at responding
Bell tent flue flash kit
Don't know yet .its a Christmas pressie
I ordered the item shown in the picture which is a 45 degree round flue flashing. The item what arrived was an oval flashing kit which is a lot larger than the picture shown and I will have to make a bigger hole in my tent which I’m not all that happy about
Hey Matthew Sorry for the misunderstanding with the flue flashing kit, but it does state that this item is oval in the items description. :-).
Great, helpful and speedy
Very positive and I am delighted with the tent. Prompt delivery. Great technical information and advice. It would be lovely to have a named contact as I’ve noticed all comms have no sign off. Shame as you are professional, knowledgeable and I enjoyed the dialogue
Sons 18th Birthday Surprise Present
Wow what a hit ! Son and his friends planning dream nights away since the unveiling of sons surprise present. He's into modern folk music and plays guitar and we forfilled his dream with this purchase. He can now sit by the fire pit strumming with a quality tent accommodation. It was easy to put up. The canvass is brilliant quality and it will last for years. It's December and there's been heavy rain but you can see quality of waterproofing. The guy ropes and pegs are really substantial. We have heated this with a small electric stove and it's perfect environment. His friends loved it and he's already making the most fantastic memories !
We have not yet assembled our bell tent as we are due to go away in 2 months when we will be using it, however the customer service when ordering this was brilliant. Bell Tent Village were friendly, helpful and informative whilst we were deciding on the best tent to order. It arrived on time and we love the care that has gone into the storage of these. Each bag has different parts inside them and they are all stored in a high quality thick material branded with their logo.
Exceeded expectations - 5 star review
My wife and I have run a small glamping site, with bell tents, for over 10 years now. In 2019, my bell tent supplier stopped trading, so I had to find a new supplier. I assessed many offerings and narrowed them down to this tent and one from another supplier. For 2020, I split my order and bought from both. We had a relatively short season due to Coronavirus distruption, but this bell tent well out-performed the competition. The workmanship was good, the tent shape and the well-tensioned heavy-duty fabric stood up well to the windy travails of the West of Ireland. I normally replace guy ropes when I buy in tents with heavier duty ones, but in this case I was happy to use the ones that were supplied. Lots of nice touches, like handy internal pockets, as well distinctive styling with black mesh and trim highlighting, which helped make these stand out from the crowd. For the 2021, I have already ordered exclusively from Bell Tent Village.
All good so far
Only had the tent one week but we had it out last weekend. Well pleased with it so far. Has nice touches, the stove chimney hole, the zipped flap for ehu cable, some pocket pouches sewn onto the walls for keys, wallets, phones etc. Looks and feels like a quality product. The 2 metre door is excellent for me being that bit taller and if like us you attach an awning / tarp shelter onto the front door spike it means that is that bit higher as well. The real game changer tho is the extra high walls which give you so much more useable space inside.
These tents are super quality. Having already purchased XL 5m bell tents from Bell Tent Village, I was looking forward to receiving these and they did not disappoint! They are so grand inside and again the quality of the zips, stove hole, guy ropes etc are excellent. The service has always been efficient from Bell tent village, and so helpful. I am really pleased with my purchases and would recommend these tents to anybody both families and glampsites.
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.
Brilliant! It saved my beloved 25 year old Dutch scout tent from being scrapped. It worked beautifully without nasty chemicals. So survived a thunderstorm and smelt pleasant to sleep in. I have loads left over too.
Cotton Canvas Waterproofing
I was disappointed as I had thought this would be a spray but it turned out to be a liquid which entailed washing the canvas cover and adding a portion to the wash. Not suitable to the need.
Worked great as i got a stained on my new bell tent and used a cleaner on it but i found it was not waterproof so i used this Cotton Canvas Waterproofing and if now is waterproof again. I got a spray bottle and put one part of Cotton Canvas Waterproofing to 9 parts of water and sprayed onto the part i wanted to waterproof and let it dry. I redone this 3 times and checked by putting water onto the area and it was 100% waterproofed again.Great job.
Cotton canvas waterproofing
Application is very easy. I used it to re-proof my swag ( Australian bivvy bag) , a canvas rucksack and a pair of over trousers. Half a bottle did these items.
Easy to *****
Great product and easy to *****, was a nice addition to our bell tent and gave us a place to relax under.
Swift delivery and perfect size for our 5m bell tent. Easy to assemble. Thank you
Awesome perfect for what we need.
5x5 m bell tent

Great quality, very waterproof and a great size. Love it!
4x4 Metre Bell Tent Canopy Awning
Recently purchased a 4x4 Metre Bell Tent Canopy Awning and after a stormy camping trip where the winds reached 40mph at times the awning was impressive. It is well built, waterproof and sturdy. would definitely recommend.
So pleased we went for this size as we can use it over our garden table as well as camping. The only thing is when you use the large supporting central pole (when using awning on its own) it does stretch the fabric and it takes a good few days to get fabric back to original.
4 x 4m Awning is Awningsome!!!
This was so perfect for our camping this year. We had the space outside to brave both the scorching heat and the inevitable rain you experience in the Green and Pleasant land - it is green for a reason eh! You need a good hammer for the sturdy pegs and we had a few very minor issues, which the brilliant customer service team sorted with no drama and a fun manner - all round good people. I love their story too…good luck to Bell Tent Village. R
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!!
