Established in Summer 2013

Born out of a need to accommodate guests at a relative's wedding, we bought our bell tent village in the summer of 2013. With a passion for camping instilled since childhood guide camps and scout adventures, we wanted to rekindle the romanticism of sleeping under canvas. 

Using our combined experience in event management, outdoor pursuits, interior design and hospitality, we provide magical camping experiences with a few luxuries thrown in.  Giving you peace of mind so you can sit back and relax.

Specialising in pop-up accommodation for festival revellers, wedding accommodation, stag doo adventures, or corporate away stays, we'll pretty much go anywhere.

Catch us this summer at your favourite festival, a friend's wedding or remote supper club birthday party.  Or you  can drop us an enquiry if you have another idea you'd like to explore...

We spent a lot of time deciding which tents to work with to ensure we have the right equipment to be able to provide the best quality camping experience we can.

British-made for British weather, our bell tents have all the traditional features of the original bell tents with wooden peg, rope guy ropes, a whiter canvas and some more modern features to suit the glamper in you! 

Features include:

  • A zip up door
  • Zip-in groundsheet so the you can lift up the sides on sunnier days
  • A higher doorframe so it's easier to get in and out
  • Ventilator windows to give you a bit of air
  • And a thicker canvas than other bell tents to keep you toasty warm at night

We're also proud to say that we choose not to throw our tents away at the end of each season, but rather clean and service them, so the canvas matures and the romanticism carries on, whilst we feel happy not to be throwing any to landfill that still have years and years left in them.

Happy Campers

"What a wonderful way to camp. No setting up or packing away, a lovely snug tent and bed and the campfire all primed and lit at the drop of a match. Thanks to Firefly for making our bash go with a bang!"

Rob Da Bank — Summer Stag Weekend May 2014

"A massive thank you for providing us with the most blissfully comfy place to rest our weary heads after an action packed day at Starry Skies.  Your service was fantastic and you went out of your way to make it perfect for us all.  We had the best location on the whole site and the tent was fabulous.  Your service and care to make sure that we were happy was exemplary and despite the rain we stayed toasty dry in our tents!  We are already looking forward to next year and will book our tent with you fast.  Big thanks."

Nadine — Starry Skies Family Camp July 2013

"Not only did they act as the perfect backdrop, adding to the festival style wedding that we wanted, but they also meant that people never had to go home!  Taking away the complication of taxis not coming or people not drinking because they had to drive, we all got to sit around the campfire until the early hours!  The bridal suite was so gorgeous too.  Thank you guys, they totally made our day."

Kerrina & James — Surrey Wedding, June 2013

"Hello from Bell Tent No.7. We had a great time at our first Shambala and will be back next year camping with Firefly!"
