Inside 6m Bell tent

General

  • Spacious bell tent on a rural Wiltshire smallholding
  • A 20-minute drive to Salisbury and 30 minutes to Stonehenge
  • Sole use of the site, with barbecues and covered kitchen provided

No need to pick your way around other people and their kit at this secluded site: book your patch at The Firs, in the village of East Grimstead, and you’ll have half an acre of well-kept Wiltshire meadow all to yourselves.

That generous offering gives you plenty of space for all manner of outdoors time… whether you’re up for gallivanting around in nature or lying back to watch the world go by (hammocks, deckchairs and picnic benches are artfully spread around the site to aid with the latter). Those who’d rather get up and ramble should venture off to Bentley Wood, a couple of miles away, a sprawling forest that's home to some of the UK’s rarest butterfly species.

Wiltshire is renowned for its prehistoric landscape, but why leave the modern world behind? The swish bell tent is stacked with top-notch facilities, with access to a piping hot shower and a private loo. The site was designed with outdoor cookouts in mind, so there’s no need to bring the kitchen sink: facilities are provided.

Outdoor chefs can choose between a gas and coal-fired barbecue, and there’s also a covered kitchen, complete with cooking equipment, for when you need protection from the elements. A stack of firewood is also thrown in to help keep you toasty on chilly evenings under the stars.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Absolutely beautiful site. Mike and Sue had thought of absolutely everything. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - you wouldn’t need to bring a thing. Games, BBQ and fire pit all provided. The site is so peaceful - the chickens and the donkey are the only company. The shower and toilet are private and perfectly clean. We couldn’t fault a thing.

    Perfect place to get away from the stress of everyday life, quiet surroundings, bell tents are a good size and beds are very comfortable. There is a beautiful woods right next to the farm which is good for going for a walk and the cooking/eating area is great. The people who own the place are lovely, they put up with our music and even gave us a few of their free range eggs and some fresly grown courgettes to take home with us. We had a wonderful time here, highly recommended.

    Tent was comfortable and spacious
    Kitchen was very well equipped, better than any self catering accommodation we have stayed in before
    Logs/coal/gas provided for BBQ and chiminea, perfect for in the evening
    Enclosed field is brilliant for those bringing dogs. Large enough for the energetic types to properly run around too.
    Shetland pony, donkey and chickens all very relaxing to watch
    One night minimum stay great for a quick getaway, but would have liked to stay longer!

    Very easy to find and welcomed by Mike and Sue, who were very friendly and welcoming and showed us around the site. The site was private with sole use of a covered outside kitchen, a large area of land, the bell tent and a private toilet and shower.
    The outdoor kitchen was well sheltered and incredibly well stocked and had everything your kitchen at home would have and more, all you need to supply is what you would like to eat. Lovely little outside table to sit on and have your dinner and a chimnea to keep you warm. Free range eggs were also available at £1 for 6 eggs and they were delicious. The site provided plenty of soap, hot water, hand sanitiser and anti bacterial spray.
    Shower and toilet were very clean and well looked after, shower had great water pressure and stayed hot.
    There were lots of outside games and outdoor seating available for spending time outside and lots to keep you entertained, there was also a good selection of cars games with a good variety so there was something suitable for all ages.
    The bell tent was beautifuly decorated and was cozy and romantic, lots of battery lights provided in the tent to give it a lovely atmosphere. The tent was surpringly warm considering the wet and windy weather. Bed is comfortable and we both slept very well, the duvet provided was very thick and an extra blanket is provided incase it is needed.
    Torches and lanterns are provided across the site for night time vision and torches are by the bed for the late night trip to the facilities.
    My partner who is horse mad made friends with Dibley and Buzz very quickly and loved having the ponies close by.
    It is very close to Sailsbury and had lots of nice local walks.
    It was an overall amazing stay and we have already made plans to return later in the summer for more than 1 night.

Local attractions

History (in the form of a famed cathedral and the 18th-century Mompesson House) sits cheek-by-jowl with a range of shops and places to eat in Salisbury (20 minutes’ drive). If you fancy a car-free jaunt, the city is also easily accessible from the site by bus.

Prehistoric Stonehenge (half an hour) is a must-see, of course, but were you aware that there’s also a second Neolithic site – Woodhenge – about the same distance away? If ancient druids are your thing, you might also want to venture up to Avebury Stone Circle (around an hour).

For tiddler-pleasing days, head over to Paultons Park (half an hour) for rides and an audience with Peppa Pig, or aim for the wilder beasts that roam the plains of Longleat Safari Park (just under an hour). If you fancy filling a day or two with rural rambles (and maybe a pub lunch or two along the way), cross into Hampshire for the trails and taverns of the New Forest. First-timers may like to get their bearings at Lyndhurst’s New Forest Heritage Centre (half an hour).
