Want to try glamping this summer but unsure where to start? If you want to experience sleeping under the stars in comfort here is a guide for how to get your glamp on.
5m Ultimate Bell Tent
Have you seen the SCG 5m Ultimate Bell Tent? This tent has a higher spec than average – making it the rocket ship of all bell tents and is available to buy from our online shop.
The Ultimate has an integrated thick, durable 540gsm heavy-duty zipped-in groundsheet. Not only can you roll the sides of the walls up on a hot summer’s day but you know that you’re 100% water tight should the rain pour down. The clever design means you can run power cables into the tent safely.
Easy to assemble, taking one person around 15 minutes to erect, the SCG 5m Ultimate Bell Tent fits up to three double mattresses comfortably but is also perfect for couples wanting ample space as well as families with loads of baggage. You can leave the tent secure for the day by padlocking the bell tent entrance together.
This top of the range bell tent will last a long time, even when used often. Ready for year after year of family fun. Want to know more? Why not check out our article on how to erect a bell tent and how to pack away a bell tent.
You’ve got the uber cool bell tent, now you just need some kit to notch up the comfort levels.

Boutique Camping have some great products and ideas on what to take glamping such as lighting, kitchen kits and fire-pits. We like to use bohemian inspired décor to add comfort to our bell tents such as our colourful Indian Chindi Rag Rugs and gorgeous Turkish kilim scatter cushions, available to buy from our SCG shop.
And to make sure you are looking as glamorous as your tent we recommend purchasing a Magic Mirror the ultimate travel mirror to solve all your getting ready dilemmas. This multifunctional beauty mirror can be folded out and used in three different ways included full length!
