Bell Tents

We can offer Exclusivity and a bespoke self-catering Glamping experience in our secluded field where we have a Timber framed shower/toilet and kitchen block with canvas awning and decking alongside our elegantly furnished 6m Bell Tents. There is also a covered barn with large dining table for eating and gathering. The barn also has a BBQ area as well as a chillout space with sofas and a woodburning stove. Outside is a large sunken firepit too. There is also a 6 x 5M mini Marquee with floorcovering which can seat about 30/40 people on tables and benches for extra dining, workshops and indoor activities and games or it can be left empty for yoga sessions, fitness exercises, retreat meditations or as a dancefloor.

The field is approximately 65 x 42m which gives plenty of scope to tailor your holiday to suit your own special requirements. We will happily discuss this with you to ensure your holiday or event meets all your expectations.

The space will be exclusively yours so you can enjoy complete privacy for your event or Gathering without having to share with people you don’t know. The space allows for Family holidays with fun games or for Hen Parties, and Birthdays with music, festivities and celebrations. We can also offer peace, quiet and contemplation for groups wanting a Retreat and Counselling Workshops can be provided by Summer Dairy Counselling by request. Being only 5 miles from the Glastonbury Festival site at Pilton, we can also offer an off-site Glamping experience and the Bath and West Park and Ride is only 10 minutes up the A37.

We have 5 fully furnished 6m bell tents which each have a double bed and 2 single mattresses. The price for the 5 large Belltents sleeping up to 20 for a 2 night weekend is £1600. The price for a 3 night weekend is £1950. Please note that for Bank Holidays all bookings have to be a minimum of 3 nights.

We also have an extra 6M Belltent which can sleep up to 4 which is £200 for 2 nights and £250 for 3 nights. In addition we can add our Crash Pads which are like American covered wagons on legs. These have a double mattress in and are £50 per night.

Our 60’s Vintage Sprite 400 Caravan has a queen sized double bed (4 foot wide), small dining area, fridge, gas hob, crockery, cutlery in a vintage style and is £150 for 2 nights or £200 for 3 nights. This is ideal for a couple who would like a truly retro experience. The slightly larger Sprite Alpine with it’s full sized double bed and bohemian styling is £200 for 2 nights and £250 for 3 nights.

The total sleeping capacity here is 31 people.
