You've come to the right place - check out our full guide here on how to pitch and decorate your slice of heaven.

 

 

Pitching Your Bell Tent:

 

  1. Location Selection: Choose a flat and level area for pitching your bell tent. Clear the ground of any rocks, sticks, or debris that could cause discomfort or damage to the tent floor. Ensure you have enough space for any furniture/large decorations that you have with you

 

  1. Lay Out the Groundsheet: Start by laying out the groundsheet provided with your bell tent. Ensure it is positioned evenly and securely to provide a barrier between the tent floor and the ground.

 

  1. Unfold the Tent: Unpack your bell tent and unfold it carefully, ensuring the door is facing the desired direction. Assemble the central pole and insert it into the designated sleeve at the top of the tent.

 

  1. Secure the Tent: Secure the tent by pegging down the corners and guy ropes. Ensure the tent is taut and stable to withstand wind and other outdoor elements.

 

  1. Adjust Ventilation: Adjust the ventilation flaps or windows to allow airflow through the tent, helping to regulate temperature and reduce condensation.

 

  1. Personalise with Accessories: Add a personal touch to your bell tent by accessorising with decorative elements such as bunting, fairy lights, or outdoor rugs. These can enhance the ambiance and make the space feel more inviting.

 

Decorating the Inside of Your Bell Tent:

 

  1. Floor Covering: Start by laying down a soft and comfortable floor covering such as a thick rug or carpet. This will provide insulation and cushioning underfoot.

 

  1. Furniture Placement: Arrange furniture strategically to maximise space and functionality. Consider including seating options such as low-level chairs, bean bags, or floor cushions for comfortable lounging.

 

  1. Sleeping Area: Set up your sleeping area with cozy bedding, pillows, and blankets. Opt for natural materials like cotton or linen for breathability and comfort.

 

  1. Lighting: Create ambiance with soft lighting options such as battery-operated fairy lights, lanterns, or candles (we recommend only using these in Fire-Retardant Cotton tents). These can add warmth and coziness to the space, especially during the evening hours.

 

  1. Storage Solutions: Incorporate storage solutions to keep the tent organised and clutter-free. Utilise hanging organisers, baskets, or storage bins to store personal belongings and camping essentials.

 

  1. Décor Accents: Enhance the aesthetic appeal of your bell tent with decorative accents such as wall art, tapestries, or hanging plants. These can add visual interest and personality to the space.

 

  1. Personal Touches: Infuse your personal style into the décor with meaningful items such as photos, souvenirs, or keepsakes. These can create a sense of home and belonging, making your bell tent feel like your own sanctuary in nature.

 

  1. Outdoor Entertaining: If using your bell tent for entertaining guests, consider adding entertainment options such as board games, musical instruments, or a portable speaker for music.

 

  1. Outdoor Dining: Set up a designated dining area with a folding table and chairs. Create a cozy atmosphere with table linens, dinnerware, and ambient lighting for al fresco dining experiences.

 

  1. Final Touches: Before enjoying your bell tent, take a moment to step back and admire your handiwork. Make any final adjustments or additions to ensure the space feels welcoming and inviting for you and your guests.
