Tips for Setting up a Glamping Business with Bell Tents

For those looking to grow an ecotourism business or join the trend of businesses providing a unique outdoor glamping experience, bell tents are a low-cost option. They have few upfront requirements. The tents are easy to set up and move. They work in all seasons. They make for a spacious and comfy glamping experience. It’s for modern adventurers.


Canvas is a natural fibre and does need some care. The most important tip is to never pack away your tent when it is still wet. If you pack it away wet, unroll it and let it dry before storing it.

You will use your bell tent often in humid conditions or set it up permanently. We recommend using a waterproofing spray or liquid. This will keep your tent high quality. It will also make it last longer. It does this by adding UV protection to the fabric and reducing the risk of mould and stains.

Caring for your bell tent is easy. But, you need to do general maintenance to keep it looking great and to lengthen the life of the canvas.


If you look after your Psyclone Tent it should serve you for many years to come. If set up permanently, its lifespan will vary. The variation depends on the conditions and the maintenance you provide to your tent. As a rule we expect your tent to last over a year if set up permanently and well maintained.

Our tents are 100% waterproof. But, for people who leave their tents up for long periods (i.e. glamping companies), we have made tent covers. The covers add an extra layer of protection from all weather.

We make our Tent Covers from lightweight Ripstop fabric. These covers are 100% waterproof – keeping your tent extra dry and cooler in the summer sun. They are easy to set-up over the top of your existing bell tent and come with their own ropes and tensioners.


Psyclone Tents supplies high-quality canvas bell tents. They also supply Tuareg tents and bell tents with built-in stove holes. Our bell tents are available in three styles. Fixed Floor, Removable Floor and Fixed Floor with Extra Windows. We also offer three sizes, 13’FT (4M)16’FT (5M), and 19’FT (6M).

Our bell tents are made from high-quality 340 gsm canvas to keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer. The canvas is treated to be fire retardant and for mould resistance and the flooring is a heavy-duty 520 gsm PVC. Our tents also come with heavy-duty galvanised pegs and poles.
