The Wildernest 5m Bell Tent™ offers you the best of both worlds - an integrated, heavy-duty zipped in groundsheet allowing you to roll the canvas side walls up on a hot summer's day, while having the security of mesh sides roll down to protect you from undesirable insects and keep your belongings safe. Remember, this tent will last a long time if you look after the canvas (never pack it away damp).

Wildernest 5m Bell Tent™


The Wildernest 5m Bell Tent™ comes with a tarpaulin groundsheet which we have specifically designed and made to the footprint of the Wildernest 5m Bell Tent™.   Please note that this tarpaulin is separate and extra to the tent itself and the reason for this addition is to keep your Wildernest 5m Bell Tent™ clean and dry from the damp ground. This makes packing down easy and it means less cleaning is required before storing.  Ensure your tarpaulin groundsheet is stored separately if wet or dirty.

The Wildernest 5m Bell Tent™ is made from a 360gsm Polycotton canvas and 650gsm PVC zipped on groundsheet. Poly cotton canvas is derived from a natural material.  As such, colour variances and minor imperfections in the canvas can be expected. These variances and imperfections do not detract from the overall performance of the product.
