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.
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!
- 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.
"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!"

"Firefly saved the day and stepped in last minute to provide some extra bell tents for us last year. They we’re fantastic, an absolute pleasure to work with and really high level of customer service.."

"We were delighted to be able to offer Firefly’s beautiful bell tents at the 2017 Abergavenny Food Festival. Firefly were professional and incredibly easy to work with, dealing with all enquiries while keeping us updated throughout. Firefly put all of the finishing touches in place to ensure that our guests enjoyed a wonderful stay."
Aine — Chief Executive, Abergavenny Food Festival 2017
"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."

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