Life Outdoors in a Touareg Bell Tent

The Touareg bell tent is THE tent that gives you space and comfort in style. Whether just the 2 of you have a need for a super space or you're a large family wanting to grab a corner each, there's plenty space for you, your kit and some left over!

It's the same height as a 5m Bell Tent but the double doors mean you can take in the views all round and also helps to create a great ambience for garden parties, events or community functions.

Want to be sure this tent is definitely the one for you? Check out our handy size guide.

We have a range of Fire Retardant Tents that are treated with a special solution during the manufacturing process to make them fully safe to use with one of our three stoves. You can read more about fire retardancy here

Part of this collection is the Touareg Fire Retardant Bell Tent with Stove Hole  which is perfect paired with either our Eco stove or Standard stove  as well as the 45 degrees flashing kit for extra stability.

And don’t forget, there is one less bed space when you use a stove!

Available in traditional sand this tent looks fabulous with an awning attached, seriously useful for extra storage on a family camping trip or for gear when you want to squeeze more people in. The tent can sleep large families or a group of 8/10 singles without the stove for a cosy night under canvas.

And as the awning comes with an additional 2 poles it's ideal to use on its own for some shade in the garden on a sunny summer day.

This wonderful Touareg bell tent belongs to Beckie from glampingonthecorner. She and her team use one of our Touareg bell tents to house adventurous campers looking for short stays at their glamping site, on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Tunbridge Wells.

You can hire the field for exclusive private glamping and with stunning views for miles it's the perfect place for a relaxing trip to the countryside.

They have an airbnb listing  if you'd like to book!

Low Down on Life Stoves

Pitch up and be the envy of your fellow campers as you stoke up your stove and snuggle down for the night in a warm, cosy tent.

Here at Life Under Canvas we have an extensive range of stoves to suit every tent size and budget.

Mini Stove

The mini stove is lightweight (10kg), compact and the perfect complement to the smaller 4m bell tent. It doesn't have an ash pan due to its size but is flat fronted so it's easy to lift the grill and sweep the ash out into your own dustpan. And despite being 'mini' it still throws out a generous 3kw of heat.

The standard stove is also lightweight, just 12kg and compact but as it's body is a little larger than the mini stove it can handle larger logs, keeps going longer and throws out up to 3.5kw of heat. Perfect for the 5m, 6m, Touareg and Emperor tents with stove holes.

Bell Tent Stove
Eco Stove

New to our range this season is the Eco Stove. The same size as the standard stove but with the addition of side grills, ideal for standing cook pots on and also to keep the coffee warm!

This eco version produces more heat output from the burning wood than a standard stove. This works by introducing a second source of air into the stove above the flames re-igniting the gases and producing more heat from the same wood with little smoke from the flue.

This re-ignition of the gases keeps them inside the firebox for longer and helps to reduce the emissions from the fire into the atmosphere, it also means that there is less likely to be a blackening of the stove glass. It's win for you and a win for the environment too!

 

All the stoves have a stylish oval window large enough so you can see the glow and flames when the stove is lit but small enough not to get damaged when you're transporting the stove. The glass is also easily removable if it does need replacing at any time in the future or for cleaning.

The flue pipes for all of the stoves fit neatly inside the body for easy transportation and they all come with a thick, heat resistant carry bag included, handy to prevent ash spilling in your car or as you move the stove.

The sturdy thin legs fold up under the body of the stoves when you pack them away and they all have the removable hot plate on the top, perfect for topping up wood from above, boiling your kettle or cooking up a tasty one pot stew.

Kathie is the owner of one of our 4M Fire Retardant Bell Tent with Stove Hole. She has styled her cotton canvas tent with some beautiful bunting, statement rugs and lots of funky pillows.

Although Kathie hasn't been able to go camping yet she's certainly made good use of it in the garden and it's been host to her daughters birthday party, family sleepovers, a movie night and halloween happenings. It's even been home to a little lamb!

Check out the bell tent stories in Kathie's feed for how best to bring the holiday to your garden. There's inspiration for every season plus fairy lights to make your garden glow!

It's certainly gives us some motivation to dust off the soft furnishings and start planning our next pitch this season. We hope its given you some.
