Our favourite bell tent for camping and preferred by many of the glamping companies we supply to also.

The Ultimate Canvas Tent is made from a beautiful medium weight canvas which makes it flexible, breathable and malleable, lovely to work with, this tent is easy to pitch and with the lighter weight canvas it rolls up and packs away beautifully.

The overall tent is lighter weight than the pro and Protech bell tents, which is ideal for easy storage, pitching and transportation.

Zippable groundsheet, mesh door, lighter weight breathable model.

5m Diameter 100% Cotton Canvas Bell Tent Specifications:

  • Heavy duty 100% breathable cotton canvas (320 g/m²)
  • Heavy duty PVC ground sheet attached to the tent with a zipper. Groundsheet PVC weighs 540 g/m² (i.e. 1.5 lbs/ 10 ft²). (Zip off ground sheet enables the ground sheet to be unzipped and sides rolled up during the day. The zip facilitates the re-attachment of the ground sheet and has a protective cover which ensure rain water will not enter between the ground sheet and the tent. This is much harder to achieve with a separate ground sheet)
  • 100% waterproof
  • A-frame covered Entrance (170cm/5.58ft high) this creates a porch to stop the rain from coming in. Without this feature the tent is harder to access and more likely to leak along the entrance flap.
  • Zipped front door for fast access. The corners of the doors have a flap for cable access
  • Zipped mosquito mesh door
  • Our tents are European tested to BS5852 standards. This is the ‘cigarette test’, which shows that the tent will not ignite when burnt by the likes of a cigarette.
  • Canvas is treated to be water and mould resistant using biodegradable products.
  • Can be fitted with the specially designed Sibley/Bell tent stoves
  • 4 windows complete with integrated mosquito nets
  • Takes 1 person only 5 to 10 minutes to pitch
  • Double stitching and reinforced key points
  • Heavy duty pegs
  • UV coated guy ropes (5 mm) and a storm proof spring loaded steel tent pole (32 mm)
  • Central pole: Ø 32 mm
  • All our tents are natural sandstone in colour. They may whiten a little with time. We appreciate the classical nature of these natural canvas tents and do not produce other colours for this reason
  • Ultimate tents are suitable for occasional camping all year round
  • If you are looking for a bell tent to be pitched for longer periods of time we recommend the Ultimate Pro and Protech models
