Wow, amazing service, ordered last Sunday 23 october, changed delivery address at last min on Monday, and delivered to new address on Tuesday 24 October, fantastic service!!!! We had fallen in love with a Bell tent after seeing a friends one at a festival. And now we are the proud owners of one!!!!!! With a busy life and various things happening, the earliest we could put it up was today.....after watching the video, reading the instructions in the package, I thought that the 15min setup was a little wishful, (especially for a first timer) but it was true, from no tent to fully set up pegged out and guy lined in 15mins!!! Even my Vango takes longer than that......! The quality of the tent is amazing, the guy lines, the pegs, the poles, the bags, the actual tent!!! Utterly amazing!!!! We are completely blown away by it....it is amazing! Today was just a test, to make sure all was good....it wasn't it; was PERFECT! We can't wait for the summer, we will be living the glamping dream, with lots of additional furniture, lights and the creature comforts, we really are impressed!!! An amazing product, amazing service, we feel like we're part of a secret family!!! Many many thanks utterly superb!
I LOVE my new tent! It's light and airy, really easy to put up - I did it all by myself and it doesn't take long, even the first time. In hot weather you can roll the sides up which looks fab and it has survived some pretty big thunderstorms and nothing is wet inside. Got other accessories, cushions, rug, table , bunting and lantern too all from boutique camping, a truly inspirational company and a pleasure to buy from. All my friends are very jealous!
Received the tent very promptly from Boutique Camping. Very easy to put up - took me ~25 minutes by myself. would have been a lot quicker with 2 people. VERY spacious. Not used in anger (or rain) yet, so can't comment on weatherproofing - that comes next month in Wales. Good quality throughout and love the zip in/out groundsheet.
Ok this is going to sound like 2 minor things but i promise they're big!! Just took delivery of 5 new 5m sandstone bells, customer service form Sophie and Ollie amazing for a start. Unpacked tents to find new improved straps to hold the tent rolled up when you pack away. Nothing wrong with the old ones but these made life MUCH easier so hats off to Ollie for the techy changes! They now have clips so no trying to tie them in a bow and were longer than the old ones. It really does make getting it back in the bag (which by the way is a big wins as it has a zip anyway - we have another bell that goes in the top like a duffel bag and its a massive pain to put away). They've also changed the chain inside the centre pole (again nothing wrong with the old one) but these feel a lot sturdier and durable. Did loads of research before we bought our first bell and we haven't been back to the first company, the other 10 we've bought are Boutique Camping Bell tents. Save yourself the 3 months research I initially made to end up buying from the wrong company and use these guys instead. The purple guy ropes are funky and the doorway is wider than on other bells making it easier to get 'stuff' in and out and aesthetically better looking!
My first canvas tent, and first bell tent; it is a delight - I am a convert from dome tents.It is easy to put up and drop; in instructions enclosed were concise and clear. The quality of the tent is very high; even the guy ropes are high quality and sturdy (compared to some quite flimsy things I have seen on other tents) and I was extremely comfortable camping for 5 days in it, even in quite heavy rain.It didn't take too long to dry and air post camping either.I would highly recommend one of these tents.
Lovely tent, created a cosy atmosphere with lighting etc and plenty of space for everything.
brilliant tents, the purple guys make them much easier to be seen, the doors open up really wide and so easy to put up! Not only that but the staff are always really helpful and friendly! Honestly you won't look back!
The tent survived two festival beautifully - from the humid east coast to the hot desert in Nevada. The only challenge was managing the tension ropes in close quarters so make sure you have some space!
I am so pleased that I bought this tent, I am always amazed at the room inside and love the factwe can all camp in the one space efortlessly!
i am just writing to thank ollie for being so pleasant and helpful when i was buying my tent and having troubles.thank you very much
We had the best 2013 summer ever in this tent. Going from festival to festival, everyone was in awe of our tent. Bring on May when we can get it set up again. We are tempted to get a more colourful one this year and have one side by side with our friends.
We had a brilliant time in our bell tent, lots of space for entertaining and sleeping. The 5meter is a little heavy too carry, so would advise to get a decent trolley. Other then that, its perfect x
Wow, this Tent really takes camping to another level, me and my family had a lovely weekend, it did rain over Sat and we have heard stories of other bell tent leaking, but ours stayed perfectly dry.Love all the personal touches also that Boutique camping have added with there purple guy ropes and zippers.Once you have tried a bell tent, your will never go back to conventional camping ;-)
The bell tent was my husbands attempt to make me embrace camping, and I have to say it solves everything I hated. So quick and easy to put up it takes me (5ft tall woman with zero camping experience) 20 minutes to put up on my first try on my own. The atmosphere inside the tent is airy and calm, we had so many people comment on how inviting it looks in the evening with the lanterns lit. I had people wanting to know where they could get the heavy duty tent pegs from (as their own bent and twisted) It is big enough for Us and our four lanky teenage boys and a very large German shepherd to chill out in,warm with the walls down cool and breezy with them rolled up I am a convert I LOVE camping in a bell tent. In fact the boys are campaigning to get rid of their state of the art poly tent to get their own bell tent!! Now I want a stove to extend our camping season.
We got the 4m, which we love. We're a couple, and there is more than enough space for a double bed in the back half of the tent and at one point we had a bunch of people playing Twister in the other half of the tent. The quality is excellent, it's easy to put up, and being able to detach the groundsheet makes it super easy to dry out when you get home. The light shines through the canvas beautifully in the morning, and it looks great lit up at night. We take it to a festival every year, and a bit of car camping from time to time. We also use it in the garden as a additional room when we're having a party. The quality of the pegs, ziPs and guys is great, and the thick pole seems very sturdy. The only possible improvement could be more visible guy ropes - the purple looks fantastic, but too easy to trip on at festivals at night. Very solvable though. We ummed and ahed for ages about getting it, but so glad we did
