6m Bell Tent - Sleeps 2
Named after one of the UK’s rarest woodland bats that frequents our re-wilding project, the Barbastelle is a traditional circular bell tent with a diameter of 6 metres and made of high quality cotton with plenty of ventilation for hot Summer days.
This is one of our most private spaces, nestled into the corner of an ancient woodland surrounded by mature oak woodland and hazel coppice.
The bed is king-size (5ft x 6.6ft), hand-built from oak harvested from the woods on the campsite, with a lovely handcrafted wooden headboard, luxury natural fibre mattress, four down pillows and a down duvet, pure Egyptian cotton bed linen and colourful recycled wool blankets.
There is a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty in the colder months, with a stove-top kettle and a Bialetti coffee-maker.
Lighting is provided by battery reading lights, two travelling battery hurricane lamps, and a candle lantern.
The Barbastelle is furnished with tree-trunk bedside tables, antique chairs and a vintage travelling trunk. The flooring is coir matting with vintage Swedish rag rugs.
All our tents are raised off the ground on a wooden platform ensuring a flat floor and avoiding any damp.
Outside, the tent has its own upcycled fire-pit and grill, and a funky table and two stools made out of recycled tyres.
"Thanks so much, it’s such a beautiful place – I love the way it’s been built, really gorgeous. Will definitely be back, we feel very rested and zen."
