Terms & Conditions
A part payment of 30% of the total cost of the booking will be charged upon booking with us and is non-refundable. We only have a limited supply of tents so we need to be sure that you aren't going to cancel on us. Full payment must be made 28 days prior to the event at the very latest. We prefer, however, to receive full payment straight away or well in advance if possible.
A minimum of 2 nights per booking is required, however we will consider events that only require a single night and charge a suitable reduced fee, subject to requirements.
A refundable deposit of £150.00 per tent is required. These tents are expensive to buy and even more expensive to maintain so all we ask is that you and your fellow campers look after them as if they were your own. If the tents or the furniture are damaged out of malice we will not refund the full amount, if any, of the £150.00 deposit. The deposit will be returned within ten days of departure, minus deductions if applicable, which will be fully itemised.

Festival bell tent bookings made directly through us are non-refundable. We ask that you sell your glamping ticket to other festival goers if you are unable to attend the festival.
The person that has made the booking is wholly responsible for all of the tents and furnishings. If other guests at your event damage the goods we will not refund the full deposit, if any (depending on cost of the damage).
The contents of our tent packages may vary slightly from tent to tent and may not be exactly what you see in our pictures. All of our furniture is unique, up-cycled and sourced from different places all over the world so each tent has a slightly different design.
