Welcome to the World of Bell Tents from Podpads

With the growing popularity of 'glamping', the Bell Tent has become the Number One choice.
Affordable and accessible, this easy to build/take down and store option is growing in demand. Quality, longevity and value for money, have become the most important factors when selecting a Bell Tent and at Podpads, we offer the best value in every instance.
All our bell tents are hand-made with the finest 350gsm polycotton/canvas material. Reinforced heavy duty 540gsm PVC groundsheets provide an impenetrable, waterproof floor to your bell tent. We have many distinctive features as standard, which make our tents the best investment you can make, when comparing with other suppliers.
We offer a full range of accessories to personalise your bell tent to suit your personal preferences & needs.
All backed up with an open display area and the best after sales support anywhere.

Our Range of Bell Tents

We offer a comprehensive range of bell tents, all made to the same high specification - across four different sizes and with an option of zipped-in or pegged-in groundsheets to suit your preference.
Podpads have worked with Bell Tents for over a decade at events across Europe, putting them up and taking down every weekend throughout the summer. We researched and trialled many alternatives and, found the best UK supplier of quality bell tents we could. Then after three years of buying their tents, we bought their company – erstwhile Canvas & Cast - back in 2013.
The quality of these tents remains the same today and, small modifications and the introduction of some new features have been made to further improve an already great design.

  • "After much internet researching and reading of bell tents blog sites, we opted for a tent from Canvas & Cast/Podpads and we know we made the right choice".


  • "There are many different suppliers selling bell tents online but, Canvas & Cast/Podpads were the only supplier which allowed us to see the product in the field, before buying. Their well located Show Area had the full range on display and, we went on to have a very nice day out in The Cotswolds after purchasing".


  • "We run a glamping site in West Wales and have bought our stock from Canvas & Cast for the past 5 years. Following Podpads take-over, the service has just got better and the quality remains the 'best in the field'."
