Tipi or not Tipi

Tailored Bell tent hire service

Who are we ?

We are a family run business based in the North of England. After years of camping under the stars with our classic VW camper van we decided to invest in an awning to enhance our experience. 


We eventually found an amazing company called ‘Glawning’ who are widely celebrated for producing and supplying only the highest quality awnings in the style of Bell Tents with wood burning stoves. We eventually teamed up with Glawning and became part of the sales team by attending various events across the UK, including VW shows and camping festivals.

After seeing how much our customers fell in love with the idea of ‘Glamping’ (Glamorous Camping) we decided to take it a step further and Tipi or not Tipi was born.

Exclusively using Glawning tents and luxurious interior furnishings (see ‘Our Bells’ for more info) we offer a bespoke bell tent hiring service for all occasions both large and small.

We can’t wait to share our amazing glamorous camping experience with you soon.
