Standard Bell Tent 4m

UK England South East England Hampshire Fordingbridge Harry's Field

  • Sleeps 3 (max 2 adults, 1 children)
  • Beds Provided

  • Bed Linen Not Included
A four-metre bell tent, furnished for two adults and one baby/young child. The Bell tent is situated in the smaller paddock with a few other Bell Tents. The paddock is our most popular spot as we offer perimeter camping only meaning there's plenty of open space in the sun-drenched 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.
  • Toiletries.

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 For

Tents, campervans, motorhomes and dogs – yes. Large groups and caravans – no.

Nearby

Walking 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.

 If you're quiet enough deer, badgers, wild horses and ponies can all be spotted. The New Forest also boasts some of the best walking in the country.
Some of the UK's best beaches are also easily accessible with Bournemouth (25 mins) and the famous National Trust beach of Studland (1hr). 

Food & Drink

There 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.
There are numerous restaurants and good New Forest Pubs in the surrounding villages and in our local town of Fordingbridge which is 2 miles away.

Family Friendly

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.

★☆☆☆☆

Very disappointing glamping experience! Facilities were tired and not clean. Copwebs and dead bugs in the ladies shower area. Tons of hotch potch outbuildings with lots of pots and random items lying around give the whole place a messy and slovenly appearance. No hot water on the first morning we stayed. We were promised access to a fridge and freezer but couldn’t find them as nobody was there to check us in or out or indeed show us where anything was! We were blamed for not being able to find them when we addressed this with the owner. Our lamps in the tent were not working, the bbq and table were dirty. The photos on their website portray a far more glamorous experience than is the reality of it all. I paid a lot of money for two nights at this place but will definitely be not returning.

Wonderful site in a beautiful location

Great site, flat, big pitches, communal kitchen, coffee, pizzas, fires. Good noise policy so makes for a happy camp. Take your bikes so amazing walks and cycles on your doorstep.

Fun but busier and noisier than anticipated

We booked a 5 night stay at Harry’s field and stayed for 4. Friendly site in beautiful surroundings with helpful staff. We had a great time but it wasn’t quite what I anticipated. Having looked at a few camping sites in the area we chose Harry’s field because they specifically specify that they don’t accommodate large groups and had plenty of space between pitches. Having a disabled child who struggles with noise and is immunosuppressed, space and a peaceful environment was specifically important to us. For the couple of days we were fortunate in that the camp site was not busy and largely frequented by small family groups but by the weekend the site was packed and we were surrounded by larger groups who by the very nature of having 5 tents worth of families were quite loud and took over quite a lot of space. Despite the loud groups the noise did die down around 11ish with the occasional slamming of car doors into the wee hours. My child had a great time making friends and the facilities were fine (although the soap in the loo’s ran out and wasn't replaced for a number of hours which isn’t so good in a pandemic). The noisy groups did get a bit much for us in the end and we decided to leave a night earlier as our son needed a bit of quiet time. I would book again but for a shorter time and In the knowledge that there’s not much space at all between pitches and groups are the norm rather than the exception. Probably a good shout if you are going mid week as a small family group for peace and quiet but be prepared for more of a vibrant atmosphere if you are going at the weekend.

Friendly and Relaxed

We have been camping at Harry's Field for five years now, and always love returning to this small, friendly site, right in the heart of the New Forest. The pitches are a great size and all of the facilities are only a short walk away. The toilets and showers are clean / warm; the washing up area has hot running water and the small shop is good for essentials. The pizza oven on a Saturday night is also always a hit! We would always recommend this site to others.

Friendly, good facilities and fab location

Just spent the bank holiday weekend here, and loved it. Wonderful setting with easy walks to explore local area from the camp gate, lovely pub serving food right next door and only half an hour to the coast if you want to explore further afield. On-site good facilities with clean wash rooms, hot showers, fire pits and the all important morning coffee! Friendly team for arrival and the shop, all you need for a fun and easy camp.
