Standard Bell Tent 4m (82 at Harry's Field)
The Owner Says
Our furnished four-metre bell tent is available for glamping in the New Forest for families and couples during the bank holidays and weekends in the summer months.
Our tents are British-made of very heavy duty canvas and have many ventilation vents and double zips. They are furnished with a double camp-bed with pull-out single camp-beds for kids if needed.
Evenings at Harry's Field can be enjoyed in our comfortable and thoughtfully furnished tents with a glass of wine or beer, or seated around a blazing log firepit toasting marshmallows and enjoying the star-studded skies.
You will be able to cook outside your bell tent. Your safety is our concern, so for that reason we would request no naked flames inside the tents (the image shows a chimney but these are not provided nor allowed).
We hire out firepits and sell wood, kindling and charcoal. We can also provide a grill so you can BBQ and charge a £5 cleaning fee.
We regret no dogs are allowed in the bell tents and bell tents may not be booked as part of a group booking. The tent and all fixtures and fittings are strictly only for the use and enjoyment by those sleeping in them.
A refundable deposit of £50 is required for all bell tent bookings to insure against damage/breakages - refunded within a week upon inspection on departure.
What you may need:
- Bedding for the beds
- Towels (essential)
- Torch (for the midnight toilet visit),
- Clothes (of course)
- Wellies (hope you won’t need them)
- Walking shoes/ boots
- Paddling shoes for the kids to go in to the numerous stream and (try) and catch minnows.
Food and drink, although we have a great little stable shop which sells amongst other things local meat from the farmer in the village.
We have freshly baked croissants and pain au chocolat. We have a wonderful pizza oven cooking the best pizzas this side of Venice on Saturday nights and The Foresters Pub right next door is one of the best pubs in the New Forest and you would be wise to book if you would like to dine there.
About Harry's Field
Suitable ForTents, campervans, motorhomes and dogs – yes. Large groups and caravans – no.
NearbyWalking and cycling are the most obvious attractions and the best way to take in the New Forest's diverse wildlife. The New Forest boasts some of the best walking in the country. From the gate you can walk for mile upon mile without ever seeing a road or a car. The open New Forest is all around us and the cycle trails are legendary around our village of Frogham.
Food & DrinkThere is a small shop onsite selling local produce and our local – The Foresters Arms (01425 652294) – is right next door. Their traditional pub food is very good and there's a selection of fine local ales on tap. For a secret spot, walk across the forest to the Royal Oak (02380 812606) at Fritham (1.5 hours walk or cycle ride with no roads or vehicles in site) or try quite walk across Hyde Common to The Potting Shed Cafe, half a mile away, where they make outstanding cream teas and lunches. – The friendly and welcoming Horse and Groom (01725 510739) in Woodgreen is a lovely, quintessentially English forest pub, serving really great food, excellent beer and a very friendly atmosphere.
Terry's Chocolate Orange, Gordon's Gin, Harry's Field... We're not sure who all these people are but we like what they do. And they all do exactly what they say on the tin. This really is just a field. But what an excellent field it is.
