Lotus Belle tents was founded by British designer Harriet Seddon in 2012.
The flagship product the 'Lotus Belle' is a unique canvas tent design that boasts all the portability and usability of a standard bell tent whilst affording the roomy luxuriousness of a yurt.
The 5 meter model has 18 square meters of standing space inside with 1.8m of headroom all the way to the edge. This means it can be fitted out with standard height beds and normal household furniture.
Outward curving wall poles are the secret behind the expansive interior space but these also give the structure a rigidity and shape that makes it highly tolerant to strong wind.
The entire tent packs into a bag 40cm x 40cm x 130cm requiring minimal storage space off-season which fits easily in the boot of a car.
Pitching the tent is very quick and easy, a one-person job that takes around 20 minutes.
The tent is hand made from 360-gram canvas so it ‘breathes’ staying cool on warm summer mornings. Naturally the material has all the latest high tech water, rot and fire retardant treatments.
The tent includes a ‘bath tub' style ground sheet that curves up 4 inches all round the edge so that even if the tent is pitched directly onto the ground, the tent remains dry in spite of very heavy rain and/or an already water logged field.
Glampsites in the UK have been using Lotus Belles since they first came to market in 2013 and are still going strong. The tents can be cleaned and repaired easily if necessary.
They come with a one-year no quibble guarantee however even with heavy use the tent should last for many years.
Since its inception Lotus Belle has rapidly come to represent the very essence of boutique camping, defining the Glamping movement and transforming the landscape of festival VIP accommodation.
