Bell Tents in The New Forest

For a glamping holiday done with style, the luxury bell tents at Forest Yurts will take you back to nature without having to feel like you’re ‘roughing it’. And if you’re planning a gathering with your extended family or a group of friends or even to celebrate a special occasion such as a hen party, you can even rent a whole camp for your exclusive use.

The site is located in the beautiful New Forest National Park and surrounded by stunning countryside. You’ll have access to a wealth of activities and facilities, including an on-site bakery, pick-your-own fields and friendly local pubs. For the more active, you can enjoy walking, cycling, water sports or even horse riding.

We have two camps with a total of eight tents, each of which holds up to four guests. Rent one tent or a whole camp, or if you’re having a really big gathering, you can even rent both together!

Bell Tent Glamping

You can enjoy a host of amenities and comforts when you have a deluxe bell tent camping break at Forest Yurts’ site by Sopley Lake, just a few miles north of Christchurch in Dorset. Each tent camp comes equipped with a separate chill-out yurt for you to gather together in the evenings or if it’s raining. There are also full cooking and dining facilities, including a barbecue and wood-fired pizza oven, hot showers and flushing loos, phone charging points and 24-hour support from our friendly team.

We’re committed to ensuring our bell tent glamping experience is as eco-friendly as possible, by making use of renewable energy sources and sustainable materials wherever possible.

Please note that if you rent a single tent and the rest of your camp is vacant – you’ll get use of the whole camp at no extra cost!
