BELL TENT UK
Unit 10 College Fields
Prince Georges Road
Tel: 07830 355 993
Bell Tents have a beautifully elegant silhouette, create an ambient circular space, they are quick to put up and pack down small.
Bell Tent UK was set up in 2006 and was at the forefront of what is now called the Glamping Revolution, introducing a quality, 100% unbleached cotton canvas at a weight that was still portable at a reasonable price. Throughout the years, we have constantly developed and improved our tents, and our main focus is not cutting corners on their quality. There are now quite a few copies out there, but no-one else sells our tents!
Our Classic Scout Patrol Tent is based on the traditional design and gives you a rectangular rather than a circular space inside. Both doors open fully giving you a cool breeze on a summer’s day. This Deluxe style tent has a fully integrated groundsheet. This tent is deceptively large and will sleep up to 12 people if you don't mind being cosy, making it perfect for large families or group activities.

Bison Bushcraft is one of the earliest established wilderness skills training and outfitting businesses in The UK. Roger Harrington started the business in 1996 after identifying a need for good natured and enjoyable wilderness skills training, combined with a well-sourced supply of high quality and thoroughly tested equipment, specific to the needs of Bushcraft and back country adventures.
At the time he started Bison, some of the kit just couldn't be bought. Roger either ended up either making it himself (the knives) or designing various items and having them made to his own exacting specifications. Roger has always had a preference for natural materials and, wherever possible, has tried to source products ‘close to their roots’ and have them locally made. This has led to a collection of highly regarded outdoor products that are functional, ethical and reliable.
The Bison Bushcraft skills training programme is unrivalled in its unique and friendly approach to the needs of their clients. The instruction is experience based and you’ll find the staff working with and alongside clients at every step of the training. Bison Bushcraft has a customer base that includes civil, police and military clients giving them the experience and flexibility to adapt to all of your training objectives, be they for leisure, professional development or just a good weekend away. Roger has advised on film and television work, taught at schools and other organisations such as The Forestry Commission and local councils. He teaches at local scout groups and is a training advisor to The UK Scout movement.

GO Outdoors is a small company that set out on a big adventure more than 40 years ago. Sheffield's 'Camping and Caravanning Centre' first opened its doors in 1969, and soon became known simply as 'CCC' to locals. CCC quickly earned a strong reputation for excellent customer service and became a landmark within Yorkshire's outdoor community.
GO Outdoors has been on this adventure for more than 40 years, and many of the team are the very same people who led CCC to success back in the 1970s and 1980s. We're still based in Sheffield and we haven't forgotten our roots, but we do have big plans for the future. We'd like you to join us in the adventure...

Khyam came to the market 20 years ago and soon became renowned for their innovations within the Outdoor Industry, particularly for tents. Initially the development of the Flexidome Quick Erect System made huge inroads into the small tent market including the start of having poles on the outside of tents which when first introduced was seen as something that simply would not sell. Looking at the style of most tents on the market today Khyam certainly had a vision.
Khyam has a passion for their products and continue to strive for the best quality using cutting edge materials wherever possible and maintaining market leadership in both the design and technology employed. Khyam also manage to monitor market forces to bring competitively priced products to a demanding market place.
The Khyam Igloo has been to the North and South poles, been used by the Marines and been the chosen tent for both the Dakar Rally and the Landrover G4 Challenge.
