The 5 metre deluxe bell tents at Wiveton Hall and Little Massingham are fabulously roomy. At 12' high in the centre, there's plenty of wiggle room, and with a massive 5 metre diameter, they provide a palatial pad for two, a perfect nest for a couple's retreat, plentiful room for a family of four with still enough space for 5, for larger groups and families. Little Massingham also has three tents on decks in the dell.
6m tents are available at Mannington Hall, Hoveton Estate, Bells Farm and Branthill Farm for that little bit of extra space!
New for 2022 at Little Massingham are Myrtle and Beryl the Railway Carriages! as well as our first woodland pitch up camping area!
If you're new to bell tent camping, the benefits are not just in size. Camping under natural cotton canvas is a completely different experience to the standard polyester tent to sleep in. No waking up feeling parched and sweaty....The breathable nature of the material, together with the four ceiling vents the tents have, means you are actually sleeping in the fresh air. The vents and the main door have a separate bug screen, allowing the air to circulate through the tent, which all in all is very conducive to a good night's rest.
Carry on Camping!!!
We are open from Spring until the Autumn, and all of our tents come equipped with an in tent log burner!! Now you can enjoy the changing seasons and then warm your toes in front of the fire!!
To keep your cosy tent comfortable inside throughout your stay, we've provided a large bell tent awning, creating a shelter for boots, cooking, and maybe some star gazing.
There'll be a double or single bed configuration, whatever you need for your group. The double beds (with proper mattresses!) and single camp beds are made up with duvets and pillows with 100% cotton sheets and pillow cases.
