Pukka bell tents are quick and easy to erect and pack down. They come with everything you need to get going, including thick guy ropes and quality Steel-V guy pegs to ensure secure pegging out and even a rubber mallet.

Our heavyweight 360gsm, Camel-coloured breathable 100% cotton canvas creates a wonderfully ambient environment, keeping the air cooler during hot weather and staying warmer in cool weather.

The zipped-in ground sheet makes erecting the bell tent even easier and when you want to let in the breeze on a really hot day you can simply unzip and roll up the side walls. Plus if it’s wet and muddy when you pack up you can unzip the ground sheet and pack it up separately from the canvas.

All the windows have zippable canvas covers as you would expect PLUS they are fitted with mesh that can be zipped open if you wish for clearer views to the outside. This also very effectively (and very easily) increases air-flow inside your tent on a hot day. Same goes for the doors. Plus all the zips are quality YKK.

The extra-wide storm flaps give added protection to all zips, including over the window zips.

And, for those who want to camp in cooler weather and wish to install a stove, every Pukka bell tent has an integral ready-cut flue exit (side wall).

Furthermore, if you wish for extra privacy or to demarcate sleeping areas you can install our easy-to-fit one- or two-roomed cotton inner tents.

Our sturdy bell tents are perfect for outdoor leisure activities and special occasions – from camping in style to providing elegant overnight guest accommodation, space to relax in the garden, children’s playrooms or teenage sleepovers..

All our bell tents are made of superior grade, naturally breathable 360gsm 100% cotton canvas, which makes for a wonderfully airy interior.
 
Using canvas of a generous 360gsm makes our tents very durable and more resilient to frequent pitching and striking (ups and downs) than lighter weight tents. This also means better insulation and natural water resistance for you, making Pukka bell tents more comfortable during both hot and cold weather, as well as better suited for enjoying out-of-season, or even during a particularly cold British Summer!
 
Pukka canvas has not been coated (so it's 'breathable') or bleached; it has been dyed a ‘Camel’ colour and has been treated during manufacture to resist water, mould and the harmful effects of UV. 
 
Note that new unused canvas tents may leak a little at the seams on their first wetting – however our bell tents have been treated to ensure minimal or even no leakage during ‘weathering’. See FAQ ‘What does ‘weathering’ my tent mean?’
 
In addition to using quality cotton we have given a lot of thought to all those little details and improvements that make for a truly superior tent:
• quality YKK zips throughout, double-tagged or reversible
• generous 50mm storm flaps over all external zips, including windows
• windows have both unzippable canvas flaps as well as independently unzippable mesh
• ready-configured with our Pukka Flue Exit, means no need for you to cut a hole in your tent
• fine insect mesh on all air vents, windows and secondary doors
• secondary fine-mesh doors on all tents
• 10cm vertical mudguard
• push-click poles for easy handling
• strong 6mm UV-resistant PP guy ropes
• chunky wooden sliders
• steel V-shaped guy pegs (with ‘teeth’ cut out) for extra anchorage
• separate carry bags for tent, poles, ropes, pegs
• centre pole fixing for hanging inner tents/accessories
• fixings for inner tents now all around your tent
• lay-flat thresholds on all zipped tents
 

 

We are a small company based in the North Suffolk countryside. We enjoy being outdoors and experiencing nature at close quarters.
 
We decided to design and make our own tents (rather than buy them off-the-shelf) because we wanted to produce a range of affordable yet superior, high spec lifestyle tents for people like us who want to make the very best of their precious leisure time.
 
We believe our customers really do appreciate the Pukka Difference – our attention to detail and the fact that we don’t compromise on quality.
We source our suppliers carefully. Our tents and tarps are responsibly made at regulated specialist factories that operate according to the Ethical Trade Initiative (ETI).
 
We are committed to providing excellent service to all our customers. If you have any questions at all please do just get in touch – by phone (01986 798113 / 07768 166748) or email (support@pukkatents.co.uk). We are happy to answer any questions.
