Bell tent glamping

hire a bell tent and put the 'glam' in camping

Leave your tent pegs and hammers at home this summer and let us do the hard work! 

Beautiful Bells have been setting up luxury bell tents across Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex, Surrey and the New Forest for the last 7 years. 
We like to think that during that time we’ve stopped many an argument about how to get the tent up! 

So whether it’s a family camp out, a romantic weekend away, a girls weekend or even a holiday on the beautiful South Coast then we can help with our bell tent hire. 

Still not sure? Check out our reasons for some bell tent hire pros. 

mobile bell tent hire

We are a fully mobile bell tent service – not a fixed site, which gives you the flexibility of camping where you want. You book the campsite – we set up the bell tents.

And if you’re unsure on where to go then we can help with that too! We’ve camped at a lot of sites ourselves and set up bell tents at lots more. So we can always point you in the direction of some great spots!

Not sure what package? We’ve covered everything off on the options below including unfurnished bell tent hire and self pitch – where you collect the bell tent from us and have a go yourselves. A great option if you’re thinking about investing in a bell tent but would like to try before you buy.

relax with a stress free glAMPING HOLIDAY
- the pro's of hiring a bell tent

Affordable: A glamping holiday is low cost. And unlike most bell tent hire companies, Beautiful Bells doesn’t charge extra for peak season or weekend bookings.

No costly camping equipment: Camping holidays are great fun, but if you do it yourself, you’ll need to invest in a lot of costly equipment. When you hire a Beautiful Bell, everything is provided for you.

No packed cars, no trailers to tow: Camping gear takes up a lot of space. When you hire your bell tent, you don’t have to worry about fitting everything in the car or towing a trailer behind you. More room for wine. 

No struggling with tents: When you arrive at your camp site, everything is ready and waiting for you. You don’t have to erect or dismantle your tent – all that is done for you. 

Home comforts: Forget sleeping on cold, lumpy ground sheets in draughty sleeping bags. Glampers need a good night’s sleep, so all of our bedding is a minimum of 13.5 tog duvets, with real sheets and pillows. 

Weather: If our British weather decides to throw a curve ball on the day you go home, then you can just up and go without having to deal with wet canvas when you get back. We’ve done it several times and can confirm it’s not that pleasant! Unfortunately we can’t help with the camping washing…
