The simple structure is supported by a single central pole and covered with cotton canvas. If that doesn’t sound sturdy enough, keep in mind that the whole tent is reinforced with tension lines from the top of the walls to the pegs around the circumference. (The bell tent comes with the stakes and guy lines.)
The upper cover is waterproof with sealed seams, ensuring that it will provide shelter from the elements, rain or shine, and its groundsheet is also waterproof.
If you need a little fresh air, there are also four ventilation holes at the top, as well as mesh-screen windows with zipped canvas flaps.
How adorable is that set up?
The great thing about this tent is that while it’s sturdy and weatherproof, it can be set up and taken down fairly quickly, if you want to move locations or only need it on a temporary basis. The product description notes that the four-meter tent can comfortably sleep up to three people, while the five-meter tent can house up to five or more.
Call up your friends, make some s’mores and have an old-fashioned slumber party in your backyard!
Turns out, you have a few options if you have your heart set on a yurt. Check out this Free Space outdoor waterproof luxury glamping bell tent for boutique camping. With regular prices of $419 for a four-meter version and $499 for a five-meter version, it’s similarly priced to the tent above.
The Free Space tent, which look super-cute outfitted with comfy boho furniture, is also made from cotton canvas. It’s made for long-term use in a wide variety of climates, so setting it up for the summer in your backyard is no problem.
It even features four zipped windows and a door made from mosquito netting to keep those annoying critters out while you’re relaxing.
Here’s another one, which actually offers a little bit more room. While the previous offerings listed here go up to five meters in size, the White Duck premium outdoors luxury Avalon canvas bell tent is an impressive six meters in diameter.
It’s a bit pricier, though, as the four-meter version costs $999.99 and the six-meter one is $1.149.99. It’s an all-season tent, though, and still costs less than adding a room to your house!
This roomy tent features a maximum height of over nine feet! The four-meter version has eight windows, the five meter version has 10 windows and you’ll get 12 windows with the six-meter tent. You can even attach a separately-sold sleeping pod if you need even more capacity. Look at how much space there is!
But if you really had your heart set on a log cabin instead of a bell tent or yurt, no problem! To really capture the rustic vibe, check out the Timber Ride family camping tent Log Cabin Vacation Home.
The fabric of the tent walls is printed with a log-cabin design, and just like the log cabin of your dreams, it can fit up to eight people. It even has a screened-in “front porch” that’s perfect for dining al fresco.
This tent includes a carry bag with wheels for convenient transport (which might come in handy since it weighs nearly 20 pounds). It’s $289.99 on Amazon.
This all looks like so much fun! We love seeing what amazing setups people are using inside their big bell tents. Decorations, furniture, lighting, color — yurts offer such a great opportunity to let creativity come into play, whether you’re at Coachella or near a national park.
So, who’s ready for some backyard fun before summer ends?
