Glamping inspiration – My dream bell tent

If you have to go camping, it might as well be in one of these. I hereby admit that I am a bell tent fan. I feel like I’ve been spotting them everywhere I go and it’s only making me covet them more and more. Yes, glamping is certainly a holiday I can get on-board with, if it’s in one of these canvas beauties. bell tent camping glamping vintage 2Hertz glamping at Blogstock 2014-2bell tents latitude circus tent canvas marquee teepee tipi colourful-2I’ve only stayed in a bell tent once, for a couple of nights at Blogstock, (check out my Blogstock pics here) but it was one of the best camping experiences I’ve ever had. The extra height meant that my husband could stand up without any problems, and I didn’t have to crawl in and out of the tent doorway. There was plenty of room for all our stuff (we don’t really travel light, I blame our car with it’s giant boot for that) and it could even fit a double bed in too, so you can imagine how comfortable we were.

And when it rained, our canvas tent remained pleasingly dry. There was no chance of accidentally bumping the canvas and causing moisture seepage like in a traditional tent; the sides were so far away from us! We could simply lie back and watch the rain pitter-patter down outside out tent, feeling super-cosy tucked under a blanket with a carpeted floor beneath our feet.

Magical camping experience with bell-tent glamping!

Now, I’m not someone who is keen on camping. For a start, I don’t like being that close to bugs. And I hate getting dirty or wet. And I really dislike getting a crick in my neck when sleeping anywhere other than my own bed. Yet often when I go camping, all of the above happen. So is it really worthwhile going camping at all?

If you’d seen these gorgeous glamourous camping bell-tents you’d definitely be answering yes! I saw these “glamping” experience tents at an event at Jimmy’s Farm recently and I could not believe how gorgeous they were – inside and out! The tents were warm and dry, with everything you’d need for a fantastic retreat-like holiday – serious kitchen equipment, a proper double bed and even a bottle of champagne… now that’s the kind of camping I like! I had to take these photos to share with you because the tents just looked so gorgeous and exactly like the kind of place a fairy would camp! It’s certainly changed my mind about camping, and now I want a bell tent of my own 🙂
