Dimensions & Features
Rolled up walls feature of 5m zig bell tent Features heavy duty zips Features a zip-in bath-tub ground sheet

Launched in 2009, our much-copied Ultimate Bell Tent range is our most popular style. We designed this range for our customers who wanted the wet weather assurance of an integrated groundsheet and the versatility of rolling up the walls - the best of both worlds! This tent comes with all the fittings for our optional inner tents for those who wish to create a separate bedroom space and extend their season.

Heavy-duty, hidden zip allows you to separate the canvas from the groundsheet

A robust zip circumnavigates the whole tent and is hidden from the elements by a rain-resistant matching canvas flap. Relax, secure in the knowledge that you're all zipped up. When the sun comes out, unzip, roll part or all of the walls up and enjoy the summer breeze flowing through the tent.

An impressive, flexible inside space

With a 300cm centre pole and a 5 meter diameter, this is a big tent with plenty of room to move about in. It will accommodate eight adults on roll mats in camping mode, five with all the kit in glamping mode or a truly palatial space for two. Why not install a king-size mattress, set up a stove, throw some rugs on the floor, and add some of our hand-painted Indian tables - you'll never want to leave!

A quality, breathable tent come rain or shine

Featuring 100% natural, unbleached cotton canvas, this tent is way more breathable than poly-cotton imitations or other nylon nightmares. Couple this with the walls up, and gone are the days of sweating it out in your personal sauna on a summer afternoon. Great for a lie-in at a festival or to have a cool, shady area for the family. Stay out of the midday sun!
