The Deluxe style Bell Tent is suitable for adventurous campers – the integrated, heavy-duty groundsheet offers more security in wet weather and better bug protection. We use our Deluxe Bell Tents for our rentals at Hotel Bell Tent due to their increased protection against the elements, and they work brilliantly. The cotton canvas on all our tents is the same but the 4m Deluxe is heavier than the 4m Standard due to the upgraded, heavy-duty groundsheet which cannot be detached from the canvas. If you particularly like the feature of rolling up the side walls go for the Standard Bell Tent or the Ultimate Bell Tent.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 that can be used to hang anything you fancy...including a loop on the centre pole to hang a rustic Tealight Chandelier. We created the Deluxe Bell Tent to be more robust in bad weather and recently have 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 Deluxe?The difference between the 4 metre Standard and the 4 metre Deluxe is that you get the added resistance to flooding with the groundsheet being permanently connected to the tent walls, however you do lose the ability to roll the sides up on hot days. The Deluxe groundsheet is also a lot thicker (540gsm PVC) and heavier - the Deluxe weighs 8.5 kg more and this difference is all groundsheet as the cotton canvas is the same for all our tents. If you look at the Features tab above you can see how the groundsheet is attached to the walls.We seriously recommend that you have a good think about how you are going to use your Bell Tent and ask yourself is it really necessary to spend the extra money on the Deluxe? Remember that one of the unique selling points of a Bell Tent is to be able to raise the sides and let the breeze through on a hot day and you can't do that with with a Deluxe tent.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 Weighs 25kg. This is a serious bit of kit so you don't want to be carrying it too far Heavy-duty, 540gsm waterproof, integral groundsheet that comes 10cm up the side of the tent 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. Has a metal hoop on the central pole, great for an Inner Tent or Tealight Chandelier All packs down into matching canvas bag small enough to go on the back of a Smart car (approx 95x35x35cm) Fabulous colour - no bright white or multi-coloured nightmares - 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!)

Can be erected by one person in around 13 minutes Ideal for those non-fairweather campers who like to get out and about come rain or shine Beautifully made using 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 Door can be 'locked' by padlocking the three door zips together Updated A-frame footing in groundsheet to stop slippage
