What do you get with a Pukka Bell Tent?

Pukka bell tents provide a blissfully peaceful Retreat

Well, you get the heavyweight 540gsm Zipped-In groundsheet. You get a canvas fly that’s a substantial 360gsm Camel coloured canvas. The canvas is 100% cotton, treated for resistance to water, mould and UV.

The canvas and groundsheet are joined together by two strong YKK zips. In fact all of our zips are top quality YKK, so you don’t need to worry about the zipper tags breaking off. Zips are double-tagged and reversible where needed and are definitely the right size of zip for the job – making the time that you spend camping as stress-free as possible.

There is a 4 inch/10 cm ‘bath tub’ effect, created by the pvc groundsheet edge being folded upwards and zipped to the canvas at 10cm from the ground. This means that you’re relatively sure of no water getting into your tent (and if it does then you should probably not be camping there!)

The lay-flat threshold does what it says, it lays flat so that you don’t trip. And when it is ‘up/closed’ you have access on either side of the entrance for cables etc, as well as protection against water ingress.

The walls are a standard 60cm high. The centre heights of the 4m/5m tents are 2.5m/3m respectively. Their respective entrance heights are 1.6m/1.7m at the top.

All of our storm flaps (the covers that protect the external zips) are a generous 5cm. Plus we have storm flaps covering the half moon window zips too. It’s standard for bell tent windows to have canvas zippable covers. Ours have zippable mesh as standard too! This allows for a lot of extra air flow on warm days, especially if you don’t want the hassle of unzipping and rolling up the tent sides.

You also have the option of installing/using a wood stove in your bell tent without the hassle of having to cut and make the flue exit yourself! All of our bells come with a ready-made flue exit in a side wall panel, complete with roll-up/roll-down canvas cover. We much prefer the idea of having a flue through the side wall as it avoids having a hole in your roof!

Your bell tent comes with an over-sized canvas bag (length-wise zip), wooden sliders, 6mm reflective ropes, Pro guy pegs plus spares and a mallet.

Finally, with our tents comes the gift of you being able to enjoy the outdoors under your own breathable canvas – Wonderful, even if it’s raining!!
