Why choose our bell tents?

Lulubells: Set up by dreamers for dreamers, to encourage both novice and seasoned campers alike to seek wild adventures by creating comfortable camping experiences for any occasion.  

Camping doesn’t have to result in tense arguments trying to put up the tent, followed by a freezing cold night cocooned inside a sleeping bag, and then waking up to a damp, yet somehow sweaty space. Reminiscent of your childhood holidays? Yup mine too!

That’s why here at Lulubells we make sure these sort of uncomfotable camping trips are long gone. We are passionate about creating affordable cosy camping under the stars in our canvas bell tents and our mission is to spread the glamping love across the UK. I hope you can help us!

Our tents have been beautifully designed and manufactured by our lovely friends at SoulPad. They have cleverly combined modern materials with a classic bell tent design to create a space that’s kind to your soul, a perfect place to unwind and relax. Our bells are made from a mixture of cotton and canvas which means they keep you cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather. Hurrah I hear you say!

Worried about the Great British weather?! Well you are probably right to be a little concerned, even if you are holidaying during the summer it’s best to be prepared for some rain. It is England after all! but don’t let the thought of waking up in a wet tent put you off camping because all our tents have a sewn in groundsheet which means despite the rain you will be clean and dry staying in Lulubells.

Alternatively, if we are lucky enough to have a heat wave or an indian summer we are so often promised, then each tent has four window vents that you can open to let some fresh air in and cool down.

Our bell tents are traditional in colour, shape and structure. The white canvas is supported by a central pole and reinforced by guy ropes that are pegged into the ground. This means we always need to pitch on a nice grassy lawn or field, so please remember this when choosing your location or venue.

We are passionate about wild camping but understand that for every person that loves ‘going wild’ there is also someone who loves the idea but is a bit more reluctant to give up their home comforts. That’s why we kit out our bells with everything you need for a comfortable camping trip.

We decorate our tents with stylish and practical furnishings, a mix of contemporary with vintage and second-hand finds. We love sourcing new pieces from charity shops, car-boot sales, junk shops and antique fairs and up-cycling them for our tents. You’ll find a vintage crate or suitcase turned bed-side table together with new, luxurious and warm bed linen.

Hiring bell tents from Lulubells will take the stress out of camping and will put you at ease from the moment you arrive, which means you’ll be physically and mentally ready for an adventure from the get-go!

As you can imagine bell tents are pretty heavy and bulky to carry and store, that’s why we do the hard bit of transporting and pitching your tent. All you need to do is turn up and have a wonderful time. Easy peasy!

Our bell tents are extremely versatile and can be used for any occasion, whether you are planning a wedding, hen do, event, romantic getaway or family holiday.
