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.

Bugger than I anticipated

Really good fabric, we had a heavy rain on first outing and no trouble, except where we weren’t quick enough to close the outer skirt. Also ordered the coir matting, big upgrade. Would sleep 6 with plenty wiggle room.

Best tent ever

Really good quality tent. It got really tested on our first holiday with the rain. No problems, leaks at all. Easy to set up and take off.

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.
