“Ten out of ten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2010

Fantastic, lovely cosy tents with a private kitchen tent, hot water all day, a campfire and BBQ area. A total of six tents, (two per family) so you don’t feel crammed in. The owners could not be more helpful; my children loved it as did my wife and I. We will go back. Ideal for those, like me, who love the idea of camping but also want the home comforts. Sea side and good walks nearby.

Stayed August 2010, traveled with family

We have just returned from a week's stay at Belle Tents and despite some typically patchy British summer weather it was one of the best family holidays we have ever had (in our party we had teenagers and toddlers). Belle Tents Camping is basically a small campsite (max. 17 people can stay in the tents) made up of three small sub-camps of tents made by the owners Dave & Laura. Each of the sleeping tents (min. 12' diameter) contains proper beds, with carpeted raised wooden flooring. Each small sub-camp has its own self contained kitchen tent with fridge, gas hob, utensils etc. The three sub-camps share a shower / toilet block and best of all a Bar Tent that houses a bar, a wood burner (very welcome on a chilly evening) and a football table. For those starry, balmy summer nights (or nights when you have three layers on like us!) there is also a camp fire to sit around. All of this takes place in the large garden / grounds of Dave and Laura's house (part of which can also be rented as small appartment / cottage). Dave and Laura are very amenable hosts, helping out where they can and dropping in for a drink and a story and some dodgy Belgian beer in our case. The sub-camps can be booked individually or as a group (as we did). Next door to the Belle Tents site is a small holding / farm with holiday cottages (Treworra Barton I think???) run by John and Maddie, they are more than happy to let the kids feed the pot belly pigs, chickens, shetland ponies etc. Don't get me wrong this isn't ultra chic, 5 star, egyptian cotton, Joe Malone candles, Yurt camping with hot and cold running champagne (indeed the only gripe was that the showers sometimes didn't run hot enough! ;-) ) but it is a very enjoyable experience in great surroundings. We will be back....just like many others that have left positive comments in the visitors book and on the website http://www.belletentscamping.co.uk/.
