Arniss Bell Tents

New for 2020, in partnership with Chapelfield Camping (28 day pop-up campsite), we are pleased to introduce Touareg Bell Tent accommodation. Guests will have the option of 4 fully equipped or 2 semi-equipped tents. These large stylish tents are the perfect size for a family camping holiday or for a couple who want a little more space. Like a traditional bell tent there’s loads of headroom but being rectangular it allows for maximum use of floor space for all to enjoy a comfortable stay.

Pre-erected in a secluded corner of Chapelfield Campsite the tents offer beds, picnic table and fire pits with rustic benches as standard. A male and female flushing style portaloo toilet with hand washing sink will be available exclusively for Touareg guests. Guests will share hot showers and washing up sinks with the rest of the happy campers at Chapelfield.

The fully equipped tents offer a splash of luxury with a contemporary feel. This includes a double bed with mattress complete with bedding and linen, three single camp beds with mattress toppers, sleeping bags, liners, pillows and blanket. Rugs, cushions, lighting, side tables and a fully equipped kitchen work station (with cool box and ice packs) completes the picture. A welcome pack includes tea, coffee, milk, sugar and a few other surprises.

So, if you want the experience of camping without the hassle, then fully equipped Arniss Bell Tents are for you. But then if you are experienced campers, who have all the gear but don’t fancy erecting the tent, the semi equipped tents might be the answer? Supplied with a double camp bed and 3 single camp beds.

Chapelfield Camping was established in 2009 and is now lovingly run by husband and wife team Graham and Tracey – commonly known as G & T . Your Arniss hosts are Sarah & Shaun and Richard (aka Dad). The campsite boasts a great location, a wonderfully large undulating field (but with plenty of flat areas), stunning sunrises & sunsets and simple but immaculate facilities – not to mention some great reviews!

The reception is a hub of activity boasting a small pop up shop with daily freshly baked croissants as well as other food and camping essentials. Device charging is catered for free of charge. Charcoal and wood are available to buy for the fire pit that is supplied with your bell tent. Finally, there is plenty of tourist information to help you get the most out of your stay in the New Forest.

Mobile food options such as pizzas are offered over the weekends to enhance your stress-free experience. The ‘Fighting Cocks’ Pub and the open New Forest are just a few minutes walk from the campsite. The pub has fine ales and tasty food – here you will be able to get an authentic feel for the area that is home to donkeys, ponies and cattle that freely roam.

Details of local walks and cycle routes are offered from the campsite and cycle hire is available in the village. Chapelfield is just a few minutes away from the world-famous Sandy Balls Holiday Village where fantastic facilities are available (charges may apply). Chapelfield Camping and Arniss Bell Tents are available for 28 + days – this year from 31st July till 1st September.
