Dimensions & Features

We designed our Pro Range in response to "Professional Users" who wanted a more heavy-duty Bell Tent for longer-term pitches and serious adventures. Our Pro Range features heavier gauge cotton canvas and groundsheet, thicker reflective guy ropes, and Pro design pegs. This tent also has a fine mesh wall and door system so that you can roll the walls up whilst keeping even the most persistent midges out.

Fine mesh wall lets the breeze in and keeps the creepy crawlies out

We love the great outdoors; the problem is when the outdoors come indoors! Our lightweight mesh system makes the inside bug and critter-proof when you roll up the canvas door and walls. It also helps keep young children in whilst enjoying the breeze when the canvas walls - peace of mind as you relax in the sun outside. The mesh walls can be rolled up or unzipped and removed for a neater look when not in use. The mesh door is permanently attached.

The perfect size for luxurious glamping in the great outdoors

Our best-selling 5 metre Bell Tents are perfect for truly stylish glamping. With a 300cm high centre pole, you get an internal floor area of 18m2, the same size as an average single garage. This area gives plenty of standing room and space for a queen, two single mattresses and some glamping furniture.

Love it

Bought this for my north York moors trips and needed something hardy that could stand the northern weather. Impressive design, especially the pegs. It can be heavy but manageable if you separate poles and pegs from the canvas.

Perfect size for a family of 4

We have two teenagers and comfortably fitted us all in on two singles and a kingsize mattress.
Put the King oppersite the door and a single eitherside. Still have loads of room in the middle of the tent.
Last summer we tried using the mesh wall and it was simple and easy to depoly.
Great tent.

I see why it's called the Ultimate

This is our second tent from Bell Tent UK.
We were early adopters back in 2010 and had many happy summers of camping in our 4m Deluxe. (I don't think they had invented the Ultimate version then)
Teenagers meant it was time for an upgrade so we went bigger and Ultimate. What a difference in useable space and we've rolled the walls up several times making it comfortable on a hot day. A quality cotton tent, we hope to be enjoying it for another decade.

King of the Bell Tents

I run a small glamping site and over the years have brought from several suppliers. These Pro bell Tents are head and shoulders above the other tents we've owned and we are now on our third batch. I like the mesh wall idea on these new versions but we don't really use them for guests in the UK. Overjoyed to find you can unzip and completly remove the mesh walls if not required. Great attention to detail and quality finish. We'll be back when we need more.

Best family investment!

I agree completely with the other reviews. After quite a bit of research we bought a 5m ultimate pro in July 2021. Customer service and speed of delivery was excellent. We have 3 young children (4&under) and the quality of the tent and the family holiday it affords is second to none! With very little prior experience we are now a bit more knowledgeable and having had an opportunity to compare our tent to other bell tents which have appeared at campsites there is no comparison (Quality and thickness of canvas, robust extremely durable ground sheet, even the superior quality of the zips and pegs). We are delighted with it. I couldnt recommend this tent more highly. The thermal properties dont compare with a synthetic tent. Even with our young children (with a few extra rugs) we were able to camp right up until early October and had our first trip of the season there in early April. Thank you Bell tent UK
