Just to avoid confusion, I am the owner of Bell Tent UK and these are the same tents as listed on our website.The 4m Ultimate Bell Tent offers you the best of both worlds - an integrated, heavy-duty zippable groundsheet allowing you to roll the sides of the walls up on a hot, summer's day with all the security of a Deluxe. If you can afford to, go for the Ultimate, as this really is the best of both worlds, even if it is about 9kg heavier than the 4m Standard. Remember these tents will last a long time if you look after the canvas (never pack it away damp!), so we recommend you choose carefully.We’ve listened to the feedback from our buyers, tweaked our design, and added options like an Inner Tent. All of our Bell Tents now have the fittings to add the optional Inner Tent with the added bonus of having loops and hoops including a loop on the centre pole that can be used to hang anything you fancy. We've also improved the A-frame's footing and redesigned the door flap so you can flatten it down in good weather to avoid tripping.What makes it Ultimate?This tent has all the qualities of a Deluxe but with a zip. If you want the best of everything and don't mind the extra investment always go for the Ultimate. The difference between the 4 metre Standard and the 4 metre Ultimate is that you get the added waterproof resistance of the groundsheet that is connected to the canvas above ground level. With the Ultimate Bell Tent you can still roll the sides up on hot days (unlike the Deluxe Bell Tent). The Ultimate groundsheet is also a lot thicker (540gsm PVC) and heavier than the Standard (hence it weighing 8.5 kg more!) The Ultimate is the best of both worlds - combining the best features of the Standard and the Deluxe but do think about how you are going to use your Bell Tent and ask yourself is it really necessary to spend the extra money?Features:

Material is treated to be water resistant for up to 60 weeks of constant use.You can then re-proof the tent yourself, from around £25. It is also UV and mould-resistant (please note, no canvas is entirely mould-proof, so we strongly recommend that you take it down every now and then to dry it out completely when it has been up for a while, especially if it's become wet after rain)
European tested to BS5852:
Unlike many of the copies out there, our tents are European tested to BS5852 standards. This is the 'cigarette test' which shows that the tent will not ignite when burnt by the likes of a cigarette. If burnt with the likes of a gas burner it takes an average of five seconds to ignite and will continue to burn but will not drip 'napalm'  like polyester tents.      Lightweight but strong (285gsm), high quality, 100% unbleached cotton canvas (the perfect balance between durability and portability)    Weighs 25kg - this is a serious bit of kit so you don't want to be carrying it too far    Heavy-duty, 540gsm waterproof, zippable, integral groundsheet that comes up the side creating a waterproof 'bath'    Groundsheet at doorways folds flat when open to stop tripping and can be clipped into up position to protect against flooding     Corners of doors have a flap that allows power cables into the tent without having to make a hole or affect flood -proofing    Door can be 'locked' by padlocking the three door zips together    All of our Bell Tents have all the loops and attachments to fit one of our inner tents should you decide you want to add one. This is unique to Bell Tent UK - other bell tents don't have these fittings    Has a metal hoop on central pole for attaching the Inner Tent, but also great for hanging our Tealight Chandeliers    All packs down into matching canvas bag with two shoulder straps, small enough to go on the back of a motorbike / Smart car (approx 90x30x30cm)    Fabulous unbleached colour - no bright white or multicoloured nightmares - creating an iconic silhouette, and giving a warm and gentle vibe inside (please note, colours may vary slightly from photographs, and from year to year)    An A-frame-covered entrance. Unlike some Bell Tents this has an A-frame entrance which creates a porch to stop the rain coming in - tents without this feature can let the rain in and leak all the way up the entrance flap (ie. to the middle of the tent!)    Takes two people around 10 minutes to erect...okay, it took us four goes to get it that fast!    Can be erected by one person in around 15 minutes    Ideal for those non-fair-weather campers who like to get out and about come rain or shine    Beautifully made from high quality materials    Four zippable windows/air vents, complete with tightly meshed mosquito netting, which also stops midges!    Heavy-duty, zipped front door for fast access and a secure seal    Updated A-frame footing in groundsheet to stop slippage
