Frequently Asked Questions
1. How much room to I need to pitch the tent?
In order to pitch our 5M bell tent, we need the size of the tent, plus 2 meters to ensure that all our guide ropes are made secure. Which gives you a space of 7 square meter of flat soft ground.
2. How many people can fit in the tent?
We can comfortably fit 10 to 12 adults in a 5 meter bell tent for a chill out party / slumber party. For a glamping experience we can fit up to 6 adults and up to 8 kids.
3. What time can we check-in?
Check-in is 3pm
Check-out is 10:30am
4. Is the tent waterproof?
Our tents are 100% waterproof and will keep you snuggly and dry.
The tents are treated with waterproofing agents to the canvas to ensure they are watertight. Like all canvas tents however, anything leaning on the walls will create a weak spot for water to potentially penetrate through. During particularly heavy or persistent rain, water can drip through zips, so ensure all tent zips are not exposed. We advise moving belongings away from the edges of the tent and ensuring they are not touching the walls. Generally though, canvas bell tents handle adverse weather very well, particularly compared with cheap, modern tents.
5. Is the 5M bell tent suitable for families?
Our 5 meter bell tent can accommodate a family of 6 with full bedding and styling. A Queen bed for mum and dad, and single beds for the kiddies. We even put in a couple of little surprises to make sure that everyone gets the best out of your glamping experience.
6. What happens if it rains?
Our bell tents are 100% waterproof so we still go ahead with the booking even with heavy rain however if you want to cancel due to inclement weather (temperatures above 39 degrees, heavy storms, heavy rain and/or hail, as forecast by the Bureau of Meteorology) we are happy to reschedule at no cost up until the day before your party.
