Good but prickly
It is excellent at protecting and insulating the floor of the bell tent. My only minor criticism is that it is a bit prickly under foot.
Coir bell tent matting.
The matting is great and really alters the appearance of the interior of the tent...makes it more of a room..it is a good purchase nit was a little on the expensive side and I haven't told my husband how much it cost....
Great service. Our go to company for coir matting. Good product and quick service.
Good quality matting
This 6m full moon coir mat is excellent in quality. It is a bit larger than the 6m bell tent, so in hindsight I should have gone for the 5m and had a gap around the edge. Lovely people who responded quickly and professionally to queries.
Creases that don't seem to relax, we've had them down for days now. Two full circles, both with the same problem. Tripping hazard when using them with the public. Super fast delivery and apart from very bad creasing, they are great.
I ordered the item shown in the picture which is a 45 degree round flue flashing. The item what arrived was an oval flashing kit which is a lot larger than the picture shown and I will have to make a bigger hole in my tent which I’m not all that happy about
Hey Matthew Sorry for the misunderstanding with the flue flashing kit, but it does state that this item is oval in the items description. :-).
We have not yet assembled our bell tent as we are due to go away in 2 months when we will be using it, however the customer service when ordering this was brilliant. Bell Tent Village were friendly, helpful and informative whilst we were deciding on the best tent to order. It arrived on time and we love the care that has gone into the storage of these. Each bag has different parts inside them and they are all stored in a high quality thick material branded with their logo.
Bought but not tried out
I bought this item for a friend as a Christmas present. They seem pleased with it and can't wait for the pandemic to ease so they can have a staycation and try it out.
Btv3 premium luxury bell tent with stove hole
Don't know yet. It's a Christmas present
Gorgeous and lots of space
Haven’t used it as yet for a camping trip but set it up in the back garden to get an idea of it. Feels very well made and sturdy, it looks gorgeous too. In all I am very happy with my purchase.
These tents are super quality. Having already purchased XL 5m bell tents from Bell Tent Village, I was looking forward to receiving these and they did not disappoint! They are so grand inside and again the quality of the zips, stove hole, guy ropes etc are excellent. The service has always been efficient from Bell tent village, and so helpful. I am really pleased with my purchases and would recommend these tents to anybody both families and glampsites.
Great people to deal with
A pleasure to use. Great bit of kit
We’ve had a 4m Soul Pad (SP) bell tent for around 7 years, camping in France and at festivals, spreading the cost over use it’s now at less than 30p a night; it’s been well used. Now that the kids have left home, we’ve started to take longer holidays and really wanted more space, as well as ducking in and out of the tent was causing backaches. After some discussions with Lee at Bell Tent Village about door heights he recommended the 5m XL. It arrived yesterday and we took it to the local rec to put up. The first thing that struck us, is that it is heavy, really heavy, at 33kg, the SP was 10kg lighter. It arrived in a canvas bag, a bag for the poles, and a peg bag with pegs and a mallet. The pegs are really tough, I don’t think we’re going to be bending any of these soon. Opening it up, the construction, finish and attention to detail of the XL is way beyond the SP. The canvas is much heavier, and all the seams are taped, in the SP most were left rough cut and of variable size. There are loops and duffle coat style pegs for all the doors and windows, whereas in the SP some were missing and others were double sewn into the seam. Putting it up is straightforward, a one person job in about 15 mins. Once up, the XL is palatial. Whereas in our SP the bed just fitted between the centre pole and the wall, in the XL I can hardly touch them with my arms stretched. The best bit for us is that door is over 6 foot high making it easy to get through without bending. Looking forward to the holidays.
Brilliant! It saved my beloved 25 year old Dutch scout tent from being scrapped. It worked beautifully without nasty chemicals. So survived a thunderstorm and smelt pleasant to sleep in. I have loads left over too.
Cotton Canvas Waterproofing
I was disappointed as I had thought this would be a spray but it turned out to be a liquid which entailed washing the canvas cover and adding a portion to the wash. Not suitable to the need.
Worked great as i got a stained on my new bell tent and used a cleaner on it but i found it was not waterproof so i used this Cotton Canvas Waterproofing and if now is waterproof again. I got a spray bottle and put one part of Cotton Canvas Waterproofing to 9 parts of water and sprayed onto the part i wanted to waterproof and let it dry. I redone this 3 times and checked by putting water onto the area and it was 100% waterproofed again.Great job.
Cotton canvas waterproofing
Application is very easy. I used it to re-proof my swag ( Australian bivvy bag) , a canvas rucksack and a pair of over trousers. Half a bottle did these items.
So pleased we went for this size as we can use it over our garden table as well as camping. The only thing is when you use the large supporting central pole (when using awning on its own) it does stretch the fabric and it takes a good few days to get fabric back to original.
4 x 4m Awning is Awningsome!!!
This was so perfect for our camping this year. We had the space outside to brave both the scorching heat and the inevitable rain you experience in the Green and Pleasant land - it is green for a reason eh! You need a good hammer for the sturdy pegs and we had a few very minor issues, which the brilliant customer service team sorted with no drama and a fun manner - all round good people. I love their story too…good luck to Bell Tent Village. R
Many happy years to come
There is ample space for us and the 4 kids and even space to relax. The emperor is easy to pitch and put the poles up. It needs two adults but is far quicker than any other tent of similar size I have ever had! Thick canvas and good sturdy guy ropes and adjusters add to the feel of the high quality nature of the tent! Look forward to accessorising it in the future. Many happy years of camping to come!!
