2020 Stock Almost GONE!

We’ve made the tent. You make the memories...

Hand-stitched canvas, crafted wooden toggles, the great outdoors, toasted marshmallows, lemon drizzle cake and lashings of ginger beer. It’s what memories are made of.


Inspired by a bygone era and the favoured accommodation of colonial adventurers, intrepid explorers and plucky pioneers, we have taken the bell tent and reimagined it for the 21st century. 

This simple but utterly ingenious concept remains at the very heart of our tents today. And inspired by Sibley’s passion to innovate and improve, we’ve made a few modifications of our own. 


Our starting point was the very materials from which the tent is constructed. We use the finest quality unbleached, cotton canvas is available. Canvas technology has come on a long way since Sibley’s day and the canvas we use is durable, waterproof, breathable and mildew resistant. At every point of the design and development of our range of tents, quality has been absolutely paramount, so we only use the best materials and components available. Wooden toggles from natural and sustainable sources, marine-grade rope and the very best zips money can buy. It may seem like a small detail but there is nothing more annoying than a zip that jams or breaks, especially when nature calls in the middle of the night or the local badger is making a beeline for your marmalade sandwiches.
