So you're planning a hen party...

Step 3 

Book your bell tents 

Planning a hen party?

Whether you’re the sister of the bride, best friend, matron of honour, or even arranging your own hen party - we know it's stressful. We've done it! And we've helped lots of other people do it too.

We're a fully mobile bell tent hire service, perfect for hen party glamping, covering the Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex and Surrey areas. This means we can set up your bell tents wherever you want them. That' might be a campsite, a friend’s field, or if it’s big enough, your back garden. So if you’re planning a bride tribe glamping hen weekend, or even just a quiet hen party camp out - we've got it covered.

Hen party glamping

How it works is this … you decide where and when you want to hold your hen party, and how many bell tents you need. We recommend you have four people to a 5m bell tent. You can increase this to five people, but four will give you more space for your hens and their belongings.

Contact us here at Beautiful Bells telling us when you’re planning to hold your hen party and how many bell tents you’d like to hire. Bear in mind, hen party glamping is very popular. The best way to avoid any stress is to organise your hens, your camp site and hire your bell tents well in advance of your chosen date.  

Bigger bell tents for larger hen parties!

If you fancy a hen party dorm instead of individual tents then talk to us about hiring 'The Taj Mahal'. This is one of our range of 7m bell tents that will sleep ten people per tent!

Alternatively, this palatial space is ideal to keep the group together for the evening -  all under one luxury canvas roof. For larger groups who want a comfortable chill out space, the Taj Mahal tent will hold up to 30 people seated. 

Link your bell tents for a mega bell mansion!

If that wasn't enough, we can link three of our 5m bell tents to a 7m chill out tent - giving you one huge Mega Bell Mansion. No walking in the rain to get to your bed for the night with this one.

Hen party campsites

We've found some great campsites in the New Forest where your bell tents can be pitched, and that offer hen friendly camping options. Visit our camp site page for more information.

And if you're wondering what to do on your hen weekend? Follow the link below to download our hen party activities sheet for some great ideas you may (or may not) have thought about!

 

 

 Hen Party Bells 

£234 per tent for 2 nights hire 

Our full glamping packages are set in 5m bell tents - giving you ample room for 5 guests per tent. 

As standard they come furnished with:

  • Full coir carpet
  • Air beds for 5 guests  
  • Cushions 
  • Rugs
  • Table 
  • LED Lantern
  • Fairy lights
  • External solar lights 
  • Bunting inside and out 

Either choose to bring your own bedding, or hire from us.

Single bedding packs can be hired at £22.50 each and contain sheet, pillow, 13.5 tog duvets and cover. We even make the beds up for you! 

We also have the following hire items available:

  • Hampers, stoves, kettles and cooking packs
  • Fire pits
  • Power leads

 Chill Out Bells 

£250 per 5m chill out bell for 2 nights hire 

It might rain. We really hope it doesn't. But it might.

Chill out bells offer you a communal 'lounge' for eating together, playing games or somewhere to shelter from the rain.

If you have early risers in your group it means they can escape the sleeping tents in the morning without disturbing others, or those who go to bed earlier can do so without halting the party.

5m chill out bells will accommodate approx. 10 - 14 people and as standard they come furnished with:  

  • Full coir carpet and rugs 
  • Selection of floor cushions and bean bags
  • A basket of blankets 
  • Bunting inside and out 
  • Table
  • Fairy lights inside and out 
  • Tea light chandelier with LED tea lights
  • Bunting inside and out

If you require a larger chill out space we also offer these in a 7m bell tent that will accommodate approx. 30 people. 

Please for pricing.

Tip 1 - No flying solo

Grab yourself a wing girl.

Sometimes you need someone to bounce ideas with. Sometimes you need someone to shout with when you're trying to arrange dates that accommodate 20 people (not an easy task!).

Anyway, the phrase 'a load shared is a load halved' is said for a reason.

Split the jobs.

Tip 2 - Social Media

We have electronic devices permanently at our disposal these days – so make use of them.

Set up a secret Facebook group, or a WhatsApp group, so you can contact everyone at the same time and keep all the information in one place. 

If all else fails and someone isn't on social media use a group text  to keep everyone informed. 

Tip 3 - Lets talk money

It's the toughest bit. Everyone has different expenses and different pay dates. 

Open an instant access savings account that you can close after the hen party weekend, and give everyone the details so they can pay in gradually and at their leisure. 

Did you know we only take a 25% deposit at booking? The balance is due 28 days before your hen party- so you have plenty of time to gather in the funds.

Tip 4 - Plan ahead

Don't leave the food shopping to chance. You will end up with 15 tubs of dip and no milk. 

Do a communal food shop (as an extra tip get everyone to pay a bit extra into your communal bank account to cover the food shop). 

If you don't fancy this then give everyone a specific list of food to bring. 

Did you know we also have a range of hampers, stoves, kettles and saucepans available to hire? 

Important information

Damage waiver

In addition to your tent hire cost there is also a damage waiver that will be returned to you within 48 hours of the tent being collected. 

  • For 5m bell tents this is £100. 
  • Emperor tents, 6m or 7m bell tents this is £200

Your campsite

You book and pay for your campsite with the campsite owner - our hire costs do not include your campsite pitch fees.
