Not blowing my own trumpet or anything - it's not that amazing - but I know quite a few of you were interested to see it! grin

Kingsroadie Fri 19-Aug-11 09:19:18

grin Okay Auntie - will leave them up for a bit longer. Wanted to take down the inside pne really as has my daughter in it and I just feel a bit funny about posting her on the internet <paranoid anal person alert>

AuntieMonica Fri 19-Aug-11 09:30:15

that's very kind, but please follow your heart and take them down whenever you feel you want to

Nice - looks like the tent from Harry Potter

Bet you get loads of comments in campsites.

Aw thanks guys! Yes we did have a fair few comments - lots of people asking whether it was an old or new tent actually.

Wow, I love it!
We caved in and bought a bell tent last week instead of the Montana or Nevada. First trip tomorrow. I love how you decorated it. Can I see an awning and a windbreak? how did that work out? What awning was it? We're trying to work out our plan for a cooking/porch area (but for another trip) so very interested in everyone's set up for canvas tents.

Kingsroadie Fri 19-Aug-11 11:01:28

Thanks Freezing! Yup an awning - from Karma Canvas (looks like the same one as on Belltent.co.uk website but slightly cheaper). I wanted to pitch it like picture 2 here www.belltent.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=57 but we couldn't manage it after several attempts so we ended up putting it nearly flush against one side and putting up like a diagonal - not great but served its purpose. Not sure that explains it very well though!

Re windbreak - I was going to get a nice canvas one after this initial trip if we thought we needed one <ponce> but it was really windy so I bought a 6 pole one for £20 on the beach. It's quite shiny and not sure how long it will last but it will do for now! Had pointless bunting up for fun and used fairly lights inside in the evenings which I loved. Also had some running down guy rope from tent and up the awning pole to light the outside area too.

Gah, I didn't see the inside!!

Kingsroadie Sat 20-Aug-11 08:27:43

Knickers - will put it back up - tell me when you've seen it!

Kingsroadie Sat 20-Aug-11 08:53:18

mel2005 Tue 23-Aug-11 10:44:11

Kingsroadie Tue 23-Aug-11 21:32:58

Thanks Mel - have been trying to upload some internal shots again but each time Mumsnet "encounters an error"...yawn.

mel2005 Tue 23-Aug-11 21:40:39

my DH wants one now and wants to put the 5m bell on the side for the kids

Kingsroadie Tue 23-Aug-11 22:01:07

Hee hee - it is possible that the Emperor and 5m bell set up is my ultimate aim...grin
