"Please note. Due to this tent being brand new some of these images are of the 6m Standard. We will be updating these pictures once we've had a chance to take some more photos."Our biggest Bell Tent yet! We’ve gone for it and made a super-sized, 6m diameter Ultimate Bell Tent, which will comfortably sleep 10 people on inflatable mattresses, up to 16 children, or more than 25 seated adults. It’s a huge tent, with an 8m footprint that weighs more than 40kg - so have a good think before you buy it - and make sure you call the camp site before you arrive to give them an idea of the pitch size you’ll need. This is a real party tent! Perfect for big groups camping together or for those running massage/meditation classes at a festival.The 6m 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, and all the security of a Deluxe. If you can afford it then go for the Ultimate, as this really is the best of both worlds, even if it is about 13kg heavier than the 6m 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. This 6 metre Bell Tent comfortably fits five single or 3 queen size air mattresses (if you fancy a love-in, or for a family) but if you just go for this one it’s like a palace in there. Think the same area as a double car garage, then add some. The average large car is 5 metres long so you could easily fit two inside this tent. The 6m Ultimate truly is a GIGANTIC tent so have a reality check before saying "I want that one!" because the 4 or 5 metre is perfect for most people and with the guy ropes you are looking at an 8 metre diameter footprint - make sure you get to the festival early to bag a big enough space!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.
Features:    Sides roll up on hot days to let the breeze through. This is the unique selling point of a Bell Tent. Just think - no more melting in the morning sun!    Lightweight but strong (285 gsm), high quality, unbleached, 100% cotton canvas - the perfect balance between durability, portability and fast drying    All packs down into matching canvas bag with two shoulder straps, small enough to go on the back of a motorbike/Smart car (approx 90cmx30cmx30cm)    Fabulous unbleached colour - no bright white or multi-coloured nightmares - creating an iconic silhouette, and giving a warm and gentle vibe inside (please note, colour may vary slightly from photographs, and from year to year)    An A-frame-covered entrance. Unlike some old Bell Tents this has an A-frame entrance which creates a porch to stop the rain coming in. Bell Tents without this feature look more like a Tipi and 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    Waterproof octagonal groundsheet (140gsm) made to measure and is pegged down to stop it being blown about    The walls have a 20cm, colour-matched, rubber flap that tucks under the groundsheet to create a wind and rain-resistant seal    Beautifully made, using high quality materials    4 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    Upgraded, 42mm  storm pole    Weight: 52kg
