Make a return on your tent investment

When we reached out to our customers who purchased our first bell tents in 2012 to see how they were getting on, they’re still standing firm and looking good! The estimated lifespan of a Lotus Belle tent is approximately five years, but they can last longer when cared for properly - (We recommend The Canvas Cleaning Company). Ensuring that they’re aired and cleaned regularly secrues their longevity - The tent comes with a 1 year manufacturing guarantee to cover all parts and craftsmanship and a 2 year warranty to cover manufacturing and components.

Why a tented structure over a wooden structure?

A tented structure “Offers guests the ultimate outdoor experience without losing the luxury of your home“ says Crossover Lodge, and we couldn’t agree with them more.

When it comes to tent structures, a high quality canvas structured one is much better than a wooden one. Here’s why:

  • Spacious without losing the luxury feel. - Luxury camping in a tent doesn’t mean you’ll be lacking space, in fact glamping in a Lotus Belle tent is quite the opposite. You can put a full size double bed in even our smallest tent - the 4M Original which has a standing head room height of 3 meters. So, standing room comes as, well, standard. All of our tents come with a super-thick, heavy duty groundsheet, ensuring that the tent feels fully enclosed with a ‘proper’ floor.
  • Lotus Belle tents have a great return on investment. - As we’ve mentioned, when properly taken care of these tents will last you years! To read how you’ll make your money back on your tent investments, give this useful blog a read.
  • Our tents are compact and portable. - “Finally a ‘yurt’ that you can take camping” we hear you say. A Lotus Belle tent folds up and fits into a large hold-all that measures 120cm x 40cm x 40cm, so there's even room for your sleeping bag (and perhaps some clothes too if you're a savvy packer).
