Dimensions & Features

Launched in 2006, the 4m Standard Bell Tent was our first foray into our modern take on the classic Bell Tent of old. The perfect starter size for most people, our 4m Bell Tents offers plenty of space for glamping for two or spacious camping for a young family of four. Featuring a separate lightweight groundsheet that lets you roll the walls up on a scorching afternoon, this tent is perfect for festivals and all kinds of adventures!

Roll up the sides and enjoy the cooling breeze

Based on the age-old Bell Tent design but utilising modern materials, this 4 metre Standard Bell Tent features a separate lightweight, pegged-in groundsheet. The waterproof skirt on the bottom of the wall, tucks underneath to create a wind and rain resistant seal. Roll up part or all of the wall on a hot afternoon, let the breeze flow over you and use the tent throughout the day - don't be stuck in a sweatbox like a nylon tent.

Over the years, thousands of happy campers have contributed to the design

Many years of expertise and customer experience have informed our design features - such as heavy-duty double stitching, A-frame doorway fittings, loops for optional inner tent, and modern canvas proofing - making this hassle-free, classic bell tent.

A perfect glamping tent for two, ideal for a young family of four, or up to six camping on roll-mats

Our 4m Standard is a roomy glamping tent for two, with enough space for a queen-size mattress and all the accessories you need to turn your tent into a boudoir! It's also a perfect space for a young family of four in comfy camping mode - it will fit a queen-size mattress and two full-size singles while still leaving room for your kit.

  • 250cm centre pole allows for standing room

Perfectly sized bell tent and made to last

I bought my bell tent 14 years ago and it's still in great condition. These are made to last! I can get the tent set up or taken down in 15 minutes, and it has been ideal for camping and festivals. Although not as roomy as the 5 metre tent, this size is ideal for me and is less heavy to carry. I like the separate groundsheet because it means I can pack up the canvas section separately, which is convenient if the groundsheet is wet from the ground and could dampen the canvas (risking mould) if packed away together before drying out completely.

Hello Annabel and thanks for your kind review. Here's to another 14 (or you could always upgrade....)

4m Bell Tent

I recently purchased this tent and was surprised how light it was. Very easy to fit in the car and it was extremely sturdy. Very robust in the wind and it kept the heat in nicely. It is a great bell tent and very worth it for the price.

GOTTA LOVE THESE BELL TENTS - 15 years and going strong!

Just bought second 4m as the family are getting too big and boisterous. 15 years the 3 of them have shared a 4m with us and it's still going strong after a LOT of outings in all weathers and weekends. Need a second to fit them in now though, they stay up a little later than me now. Can't wait to put it alongside it's older relative. Thanks Bell Tent UK.

Bought one of these off Bell Tent about 10 years ago. Incredibly well built and tough (survived 8 Glastonbury’s and dozens of parties) and still going strong. I think I’ll wear out before it does. Great service too.

The Only Choice for a Bell Tent!

I bought my bell tent from Bell Tent UK a few years ago and it's still in superb condition, even after several festivals. The quality of the fabric is second to none, and even after a lot of good ole British rain it easily stands the test of time. The service from all at the company is friendly but professional, knowledgeable and honest - they won't sell you what you don't need, because they want you to truly enjoy and love your Bell Tent. Perfect ethos, and totally genuine. I recommend Bell Tent UK, unreservedly!
