How big are the bell tents and how much space do they need?
We have two sizes of bell tents, 4m or 5m. Our 4m bell tent is perfect for our day hire options, this can also be used for our glamping hire and sleeps a maximum of 4 guests. The 4m bell tent requires a flat grass surface of 7m X 7m. Our 5m bell tent can sleep up to 6 glampers, this tent requires a flat grass surface of 8m X 8m.
How many people can sleep in one tent?
Up to 6 comfortably.
Are your tents warm?
Although we set up our bell tents outside, we do our best to keep you warm and cosy during the night. We offer thick duvets, blankets and hot water bottles. We recommend in the cooler months to bring your own cosy pyjamas!
How long do I get the set up for?
Our day hire prices are based on a maximum 6 hour hire, latest collection of 8pm. Our glamping hire is overnight and we can be flexible with set up and collection times, depending on our availability.
Where can you deliver?
Delivery is included with all our packages if you live within 20 miles of our location (Colchester, Essex). If you live outside of this radius we can still deliver to some areas for an additional charge. Please let us know your address when you enquire and we will advise you of the delivery cost.
Are your tents waterproof?
Can you set up on fake grass?
Unfortunately our bell tents require real grass so we can hammer our pegs into the ground.
What happens if it rains?
If you have booked a bell tent then you’re safe, all our bells are waterproof and are super cosy when it rains! Our outdoor picnic party hire is obviously out in the open, we advise our clients to think of a plan b. Scenario. If you could have a gazebo/ marquee on hand for cover, or alternatively a space inside clear for us to set up in.
Do I need a power supply?
No power supply is needed, all our lights are battery or solar powered.
What colour schemes do you have?
We have a huge collection of styling pieces and colour schemes, you can find our collections here. But if you have something specific in mind please do let me know, I love to get creative with my set ups! You can find all the information here.
When is payment required?
To secure your event date we require a 25% deposit at time of booking, only once this has been paid is the date secured for you. The final balance is then due 6 weeks prior to your event date.
Unfortunately damages can happen, we do have a list of charges which applies to all our kit. You will be charged for this upon collection.
Are we allowed fires?
Not near our tents no. Obviously there is a risk of fire, and we really don’t like the smell of bonfires on our tents and kit. There is an additional cleaning charge for any kit that smells on collection.
Are we allowed pets?
As much as I wish I could say yes, unfortunately pets are not allowed for our setups.
What extras can you organise?
We pride ourselves in being an all inclusive events company, so really we can organise everything for you! From the beautiful styling, balloons and personalised boards right through to delicious catering options and drinks to keep everyone happy. Check out our bolt on page here.
What services do you offer in the winter?
We only offer our bell tent hire from April – the end of September. During the winter however we can set up our picnic parties indoors and offer luxury grazing tables.
