East Afton Bell Tents

East Afton bell tents are a new addition to our accommodation offering, available for stays during July and August only.

Located on our neighbouring farm, a few minutes down the road, the bell tents are surrounded by rural countryside providing a relaxing escape from the every day. With no wi-fi onsite, it's the perfect place to unplug and unwind - although good 4G access is available if you really can't switch off completely!

There are 4 bell tent 'bubbles' onsite, each comprising: one 6 metre bell tent with king-size bed, one 4 metre bell tent with 2 single mattresses on pallet style low frames. In the stable block a short stroll away, they each have a large private bathroom with shower, and small kitchenette with sockets, basic crockery, glasses and cooking equipment. There is no electricity in the bell tents. (See inventory below for full details)

We loved our stay here. The layout of the site, nice beds, lovely little touches, beautiful scenery and private bathroom/kitchen made us feel safe and gave a sense of luxury while feeling close to the countryside and giving us the freedom of camping.

Beautiful new bell tents set up with all the conveniences you could want and more. Tents and bedding were super warm which we lovely on cool nights accompanied by the firepits outside. Shop nearby (5 mins on bike) and lovely beaches, hikes and bike routes around the peninsula all easily accessible. Hosts were very generous and helpful!
