am I allowed todo this?? just listed my soulpad on ebay here the start of the 'far too many tents for someone who has no time to go camping right now' cull

Nope...I don't think you are allowed. Nice tent though!

I would LOVE this tent. But it isn't v practical for me....but just suppose I was to be tempted...can someone post a pic of a bell tent in it's bag, with something to give a sense of scale?

I havent noticed any trouble with the creepies. the skirt of the tent tucks under the groundsheet and then thats pegged down through 2 lots of holes so there is an overlap. I will have a look for bagged dimensions but remembering thinking its about a meter long and 40cm diam approx

Is this the same tent?

We got ours a couple of weeks ago and tried it out last weekend. (It was cold!! I'll be looking out for heater to buy for early and late in the year camping). But otherwise it was lovely, really easy to put up and felt lovely and big inside. And your's has a awning too (I'm very jealous!). The only thing that was a bit odd was people kept walking passed to get a look as we put it up (thank goodness it was easy!)

yes, thats the one....

I always wondered about getting one of the inner tents - ou can get a half or, as I was after, a quarter. gives you an extra layer for sleeping and good for locking children up in!

Do you really take that bed with you camping? Its beooutiful, i'm mightily tempted (the tent that is, not the bed!)

haha. No that bed has gone into our 'Pre-Raphaelite/Aesthetic period' yurt. It was the only photos I had of the tent but at least make a change from the usual ones!

Hi Nettle, how much are you looking for? I know it's an auction but what would it take for you to take it off ebay?

NettleTea Thu 09-May-13 17:46:09

hmmmmmmmm Ive got some people interested who want the stove and carpet too so the thought of flogging them is quite an incentive. The thought of not paying ebay/paypal fees is quite an incentive too though smile there are over 100 watchers and its not even been up for 24 hours yet....

tent and awning have not had huge use - 3 weeks and then 2 single nights......

"hmmmmmmmm I've got some people interested .......etc.etc" now there is a clear and concise answer to MsInga's question. grin

you can see how good I am at making decisions......

has nobody said it yet? "no I don't need one thanks but I'll let my pregnant friends know" wink

MsIngaFewmarbles Mon 13-May-13 22:21:57

Cmon nettle, PM me a number smile

Why are you selling?

Pimpf Wed 15-May-13 18:54:01

Arh - just seen your photos - bell tent not needed with that beauty!

NettleTea Wed 15-May-13 20:46:55

MsInga I tried to message you but it wont let me... Ive had someone offer me £400 off site but they dont want the extra bits. The person with the highest bid at the moment wants the extras. Thats why I am in a quandry.

NettleTea Wed 15-May-13 20:51:03

Pimf... mainly its because now that we are doing the 'glamping' thing at the farm I am busy as a busy thing all through the camping season and so the bell and my others dont get any use at all. And I prefer the deWaards personally if I WAS going to pop off for a midweek. So I bought a caravan, with the idea of sticking kids into it of a Friday 'check in the guests' night and we can use it in the UK off season. I have succumbed to a canvas retro awning though, so tentness not totally lost. Plus we are not allowed to put any extra tents up on the farm at the moment because of our planning permission, but I am allowed a caravan within the curtilage of the farmhouse as an extra sleeping area. Its all very sad and complicated....
