6m Bell Tent - Sleeps 2

Named after one of the UK’s rarest woodland bats found in our re-wilding project the Bechstein is a traditional circular bell tent with a diameter of 6 metres nestled in ancient woodland, surrounded by mature oaks and hazel coppice.

Made of high quality cotton with plenty of ventilation for hot summer days, this tent provides an enormous amount of space – perfect for stretching out, or for a couple of extra camp-beds.

The bed is king-size (5ft x 6.6ft), hand-built from oak harvested from the woods on site, with a lovely handcrafted headboard, luxury natural fibre mattress, four down pillows and 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 two battery reading lights, two travelling battery hurricane lamps, and a candle lantern.

The tent is furnished with quirky locally-sourced furniture including a small writing desk, comfortable two-seater sofa, and a vintage travelling trunk.

All our tents are raised off the ground on a wooden platform ensuring a flat floor and avoiding any damp.

The floor is laid with coir matting and vintage Swedish rag rugs by the bedside.

Outside, the tent has its own upcycled fire-pit and grill, and a funky table and two stools made out of recycled tyres.

"Thank you for such a wonderful stay – we loved every minute of it! Such a friendly atmosphere and amazing craftsmanship. Wild swimming was a highlight! We’ll definitely be back!"
