The BCCJ is Delighted to welcome Camping with Soul Japan on becoming an Entrepreneur Member!
Founder Tobyn Cleeves got a lighter and more portable sample made and used it as the bridal suite at his wedding. Several of his guests loved the tent and asked where they could get one, so he seized the opportunity, formed Bell Tent UK and started selling them from his home. The timing was right and the whole glamping phenomenon exploded in 2007 with the Bell Tent being the tent of choice for the discerning glamper. After coverage in The Sunday Times Style Magazine, Bell Tent UK was confirmed as the go to Bell Tent company and with the introduction of bespoke accessories the Camping with Soul family was formed. Things were already moving fast when in 2008 we were asked by Glastonbury Festival if we rented out our tents – ‘we do now!’ we said, and our sister company Hotel Bell Tent was born. The glamping revolution has changed the camping landscape and convinced even the most discerning campers that being in a field can in fact be luxurious and cosy and we’ve enjoyed being a core part of it for over a decade.
