Many thanks! I have had my Bell Tent from you for over 8 years, and it has seen a lot of action. It is made very well, and the only reason we have to repair it is because of human damage - not even wear and tear. I would just like to say that you are a great company to deal with.
My tent arrived yesterday; despite rainy forecast, we set it up in back yard, figuring it could have its inaugural wetting right away. 2+ inches of
rain and moderate winds since; just checked and the floor is still dry.
Hi, just to say thanks for helping sort out getting my other Bell Tent across to Sweden in time for my wedding. Just thought you might like to see a few pics of our big day, complete with 'Soul'. Thanks again,
A good friend told me about you and your company and I wanted to thank you for my beautiful 4m Bell Tent. I am so thrilled with it and very impressed at the high standard of the detail and finishing. We are all looking forward to many years of happy camping.
Hi Tobyn, Just wanted to say we received the Emperor Tent this week and I put it up in the paddock - by myself - today. It's fantastic! So spacious. My Mum said "That's not a tent, that's a palace!" It's now standing there in our usual 25mph breeze showing barely a ruffle. There'll certainly be no problem spotting it among all the dome tents. We're so excited we're going to have to go camping tomorrow - even if the kids are supposed to be back at school this week. Many thanks,
I've recently purchased your 5m Ultimate Bell Tent. I did a 1 night test run last weekend before my camping holiday I've got to say this tent is amazing! We are so pleased. Best purchase in years! I have been inundated with questions on where it's from and how much it was!
Here are a couple of photos from our camping trip in the New Forest. So glad I got rid of the caravan and got my fantastic 4m Bell Tent instead. It's so quick - I can get from opening the boot of the car to fully furnished in an hour on my own (so long as there is no male intervention!).
I am already looking forward to next year's trips. Thanks for making our families camping trips fun again.
Received Touareg Deluxe & Malu awning yesterday - put both up after work - slept in it with family last night - kids got up at 5.15! A wonderful tribal feel to this tent, very manageable and lovely awning (so much better than those generic plasticy gazebos) and a super service from you guys. I'm off to have a snooze.
Here are some pics of my recently purchased Bell Tent. Excellent tent, terrible weather as it rained non stop all trip. The night these were taken was the only dry night!
Hi we got our "Ultimate" on Thursday and it went straight up in the garden so we could sleep out! It's fantastic, thank you!! So easy to put up and unzipping the walls and letting the air in is a great feature.
Who needs a house when you've got a bell tent? LOVELY :-)
Just a quick note to let you know that I have been living in a 4m Bell Tent PRO for the last 4 months and it is great. No leaks or any other problems, going so well that I'm tempted to stay in it over the winter! Probably have to rethink this when it's dark and cold but will keep you informed. Thanks for a great product that is standing up to the British weather.
Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know we have just enjoyed a brilliant few days away in our new Bell Tent. We bought the 5 metre Ultimate, with the zip in ground sheet and are really pleased with our choice. And the inner tent was fantastic too - it easily accommodated 3 double airbeds and there was heaps of space for us 2 parents and the tribe of kids. Still plenty of living space left, especially with the malu set up outside to provide shelter from heavy wind and rain. It was great being ina tent that stood so solidly against the elements with no flapping around.

I don't often do this but just thought would write and let you know how happy we are with our new Bell Tent. Its the 5m Ultimate and its fantastic. We have used it a couple of time now, the kids love it, its really easy to put up (if a little heavy) and has a really lovely nice feel. This weekend we went camping as a group down to mid Wales just outside Machynlleth. This was the first time the tent had seen any rain at all and only the third time we have pitched it. After continuous downpour for over 24hrs causing widespread flooding throughout the area, gale force winds and 2 off our groups conventional tents collapsing the bell tent was absolutely fine. We had a slight leak around the A frame which was easily wiped with a towel, and that was it! The groundsheet was invaluable, completely watertight even when we had the water level rising up through the ground during the second night. All the kids piled in to keep warm and the tent was still a lovely dry space despite the chaos being caused by the weather. Apart from a small 2 man expedition tent it was literally the last dry space under canvas on the campsite. Thanks all, we are really very pleased.

I am very impressed with my 4m Ultimate Bell Tent, the ordering procedure with the helpful staff, was effortless, friendly and professional. It took myself and my mate only 20 minutes to erect the tent, taking our time and following the well worded and illustrated instructions.
The Frontier Stove was assembled and lit outside with ease. Within a short space of time, I had 3 litres of hot water available from the water heater and two billy cans and a frying pan on top for preparing our lunch. The next day we fixed the flashing kit. I found it well worth while moving the stove around the tent to determine the best position for it - once the flashing kit is fixed, that's where the stove goes! We fitted the flashing kit both sides first before cutting out the circular patch after and then connecting the flue pipe. I will get a mat to place underneath the stove to protect the groundsheet from any hot ash etc. The stove heated the tent on a damp, November day, extremely quickly.
The tent was taken down with ease later, stove likewise.I am looking forward to camping over the winter to test it further, but have already ordered another tent and stove for my land in Portugal. Great products, great service!
Just wanted to say "thank you" so much for delivering my 2 tier Tea Light Chandelier. A superb product and looking forward to using it over the coming week. The customer experience from start to finish was excellent and would definitely recommend your services and website.
Had to say thank you - the large rug I ordered arrived today and I want to let you know how pleased I am with it. It's fab - the quality is brilliant, far better than I have seen anywhere else. So for all those others out there who are looking for a large, quality rug, don't bother searching, just buy one of these. Looking forward to glamping up the tent in a couple of weeks.
Panoramic interior shot of my Emperor tent at 'The Isle of Avalon' campsite Glastonbury, faired well considering it had already been up a week in Lizard Cornwall then down, up a week in Combe Martin Devon, then down, plus 3 little boys and there mayhem to contend with!
Cheers Bell for a fantastic tent!! :0)
Hi. We had a real storm while camping one night ( high winds, horizontal rain ) and my Touareg was the only tent that didn't need re-pegging. The nylon tents were all about to take off but the Touareg just went with the flow.
The tent had its first run out in the Jordan Desert this weekend - really wonderful, the family loved it.

Great buying experience – gave very helpful advice on what size to buy, and both the upsides and downsides of each. Genuinely thought he wanted me to get the best tent for me, rather than trying to sell me most expensive one. Nicely packaged up, simple instructions (don't even really need them) and delivered on time. Wouldn't go anywhere else for a tent than these guys.
