Well, things are beginning to feel very strange. We are starting isolation down here at Lotus Belle headquarters. Everything has gone very quiet and the kids are off school now, so time to shift pace. 

We’ve put a 5m Lotus Belle up in the woods and over the next few weeks, it will be our home-school classroom, our retreat and refuge.

Our ‘first day in the bunker’ as the middle one keeps shouting, was spent tent pitching, picking wild garlic and making stop-motion animations. We want to make the most of this slower way of doing things and the opportunity to create a beautiful space. We haven’t personally used a Lotus Belle as an outdoor classroom before so this will be a learning experience for us.

We’ll let you know how we got on and what we get up to but would also love any suggestions. Anyone else out there with home-schooling plans?

We also want to make sure we're helping our community, so we've decided that 10% of profits from all tent purchases will be donated to local food bank FareShare South West plus we'll give you a free fleece carpet to line your tent while stocks last, just use code STAYATHOME at the checkout. Helping each other is going to be hugely important during these trying times.

Wishing you all health and strength.

Love from Lotus Belle x
