Hi All
Does anyone know a naturalist campsite within a couple of hours of London that has at least 3 bell tents to hire and lets others in a group with own tents pitch beside hired tents.

Also needs a big space near tents for kids to run without fear of cars (have a few tiny ones).

We have been to Welsummer in Kent a few times which is perfect (in case anyone looking for similar) but just fancied a change really.

Thanks Miss Wimpy! Btw meant natural and not naturalist! Wondered for a minute whether I was asking for a nudist one!

I must admit I thought at first you meant naturist but when I saw you had been to Welsummer I figured not! Would have made for an interesting thread though.

Don't have anything useful to add I am afriad as although I have been to loads of sites that close to London, I can't think of any that I know hire bell tents. However, it is worth looking on as they do allow you to search for specific things and glamping sites is one of them (ie. places that hire bells, yurts etc). They also have a naturist search option, just in case you change your mind....

We have 1 bell tent with 2 camping pods if that helps? There is also a tent pitch alongside. Each pitch has a campfire pit...

Can you imagine THE COLD of naked camping? I am hoping Welsummer is not going to get an influx of unwanted nudists now - nothing against nudists you understand! Your site looks lovely Brassica but afraid we will likely need 3/4 bell tents and space for a 2 or 3 other tents - there are quite a few of us!

I was going to suggest Welsummer.

There is a Naturist campsite in Weybourne, in N Norfolk - it looks very nice!

The Orchard Site does pre-erected tents but they aren't bell the 'bell' bit important?

I've always thought this place looks nice smile

Wowo, the orchard and derwentfarm all look great. Will e mail them to see if prepared to put all tents together. Thanks everyone!

"Pre-erected" and "naturist" in the same discussion! This thread is going to get all sorts of disappointed Google traffic ;)
