Reasons to Hire a Tent and Go Glamping in Cornwall

We're big advocates on promoting sharing for better sustainability, to reduce waste and increase carbon efficiency. We believe that hiring rather than buying is a step in the right direction. Here's why you should consider renting a Ysella Bell Tent instead of purchasing your own tent when you go camping this summer!

1. For a Start:

We put up the tent for you! Simply choose any campsite in Cornwall (or Devon) and we'll have everything ready for your arrival. Imagine the bliss of not having to faff around with poles, guy ropes and air mattresses - you can go straight into your luxury abode and relax on your comfortable double bed. And it’s not just a bit of flimsy plastic on the floor either. We offer elegant and robust beds - a real bed frame and an actual mattress. Our tents are spacious too, with easily enough room for a family (a dog) and space inside to stand up in. So wave goodbye to pulling on your trousers lying down, and stooping in and out the tent. We also provide pillows, crisp-white freshly laundered linen sheets, extra blankets and large quilted bedspreads. ALL the essentials are catered for when you hire a tent with us, including furniture, Weber barbeques, kitchen equipment, camping plates and mugs, cutlery, and cool boxes to store food. Plus power chargers for your devices. You barely need to pack a thing, and that's why you should consider Glamping instead of bringing your own tent!

2. Unique and Comfortable Experiences: 

Our Bell Tents offer comfort that is far removed from your typical mass market nylon tent. Our canvas wonders have a nostalgic feel, timeless in design, both stylish and classy. Their cotton construction is heavier, significantly more UV resistant, and better insulated than most tents. Bell Tents are surprisingly comfortable and large too. With windows for ventilation, with a strong centre pole that is robust in windy conditions. You won't find it snapping on you in the middle of the night. When you hire with us you'll experience a high-value and high-priced product without the outlay, a glamping experience without the burden of purchasing, storing and maintaining your gear.

3. Diverse Locations: 

We offer a variety of stunning locations for Bell Tent set-up, and we've got many year's experience in choosing the best campsites. From peaceful countryside settings, idyllic beaches, or even hidden woodland areas, each offering a unique glamping experience. No need to visit loads of different camping websites, you'll find a large variety of campsites to suit your needs listed on our platform. Check our our recommended campsites page for more inspiration for where to have your shelter pitched. We've done the research so you don't have too!

4. Reconnect with Nature: 

Glamping allows you to reconnect with nature and appreciate the beauty of the outdoors. You can stargaze at night, listen to the sounds of birds in the morning, and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine throughout the day. Take even more enjoyment from this when you know that we'll pack your tent away for you when it's time to say goodbye.

5. Suitable for all Occasions: 

Whether you're planning a romantic getaway, a family holiday, or a trip with friends, Bell Tents are suitable for all occasions. They can be styled for parties, weddings, lounges, or with beds. Offering a versatile way to spend quality time with your crew.

6. Own Less. Experience More:

Our Cornish community is all about changing the mindset of ‘single use’ culture, reducing waste and protecting our amazing environment. Along with many other sustainably minded Cornish companies we are big fans of the the circular economy model. Sharing, leasing and reusing existing materials. Hiring rather than buying is a big step in the right direction. We have done our best to make our tents (and interiors) as sustainable as possible - incorporating vintage treasures and antique furniture into our tents, we have minimised our reliance on new, mass-produced items. Our tent supplier even plants a tree for every new tent sold! So, by leasing you'll be part of that mission, improving your carbon footprint, protecting our stunning landscapes, diverse ecosystems and cultural heritage.

7. Budget-Friendly: 

While glamping can sometimes be perceived as expensive, hiring a Bell Tent can be a surprisingly budget-friendly option, especially if you are new to camping and are buying everything for the first time. It is definitely cheaper compared to staying in hotels or holiday lets too. One weeks holiday using our hire service will cost around 500 for a family of four. An Airbnb or hotel will be OVER double that cost.

8. Activities in Cornwall: 

Cornwall has a wealth of outdoor activities, like cycling, surfing, and kayaking. If you've already crammed your car with camping equipment you might not have room for your outdoor pursuit equipment. Glamping rental saves precious car space!

So, if you're looking for a unique and unforgettable way to experience the beauty of Cornwall, consider hiring a Bell Tent and going glamping. With its stunning locations, and endless possibilities for exploration and relaxation, Glamping in Cornwall is sure to be an experience you won't forget.
