After an accident in 2012, when some cider destroyed the visitor book, we decided not to replace it. Instead, we would greatly appreciate it if our guests would write a short review on Trip Advisor. Many thanks, Laura & Dave xx.
August 2006 - our opening year!
"Couldn't have wished for a better week. Tents were magical, facilities were convenient. All the hard work, warmth & hospitality of our hosts very much appreciated. Thank you!! (We will be back!)"
"What a little gem of a place - best camping I've ever done & the campfire songs will be long remembered. See you next year XX."
Ben & Naomi:
"Thank you so much for a brilliant week! This is first class camping and we've enjoyed camp barbies, late night singalong, walks in the countryside and trips to the beach - but most of all this was made even better by Dave + Laura as hospitality. THANKS!"
Caroline, Nick and Noah:
"Perfect week in a fantastic place. Thank you."
Mark, Katie, Ebbi + Sum-Sum:
"THANK YOU FOR SUCH A FANTASTIC WEEK, MADE TO FEEL VERY WELCOME BY DAVE & LAURA. WE ARE COMING BACK WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!"
Annie, Steve, Finn & Frank:
"We don't want to go home! We've had the best week we've ever had and thank you for it! Finn's 6th birthday has been super special. And I ate pork! And thought a horse was a panther! Fantastic!"
[Re the pork, we had our own pigs here - and they were delicious! - Dave & Laura]
"Wonderful hosts, thank you for a lovely time."
Derek & Orla:
"Thanks for a great holiday, Orla wants to live here. So do I... Thank you Dave & Laura"
"Some of the things I liked the best - apart from Dave and Laura, of course -: I love the bench in the bathroom, and the towel hook on the post by the sink, the rope handles on the loo doors, and the shiny screws on the upright posts; the way the tents are made is really really happy-making. The boys loved making fires, and photographing the roofs of the tents from the inside. Beautiful borders, and very good lawn-mowing. I could go on.... and on.... Love Anna XX
"Cold, cold, cold, rain, rain, rain, thunder and a piece of sunshine! But great company from Gail, Bas and Roberta and Ali, lets hope the girls keep in touch! Also Dave and Laura thanks for your hospitality - may the next family have better weather x"
Bas, Gail, Roberta, Steve, Wendy & Ali:

Ford / Burningham Family:
"Campsite seems the wrong word to describe such a charming place. Beautiful tents (I want one) and wonderful flowers. The children have had a ball despite the disappointing weather. We retreat damp and tired but full of the joys of outdoor living and campfire bon hommie."
Natasha, Fran, Nelson, Isabella, Louis & Dexter:
" 'wherever you may wonder, wherever you may roam.
There's nowhere quite like Belle Tents - a home away from home
Among the things here about which you may rave
You'll never find such gracious hosts as lovely Laura & Dashing Dave!'
(That's as far as I can go in rhyme - the rest is reason... Its been a fantastic week despite the weather. Highlights: obviously the tents, but also the fire, the bar tent, the barbeques and the endless (and suffering) kindness and hospitality. Big hugs & thanks. We'd love to come back next year - hope you'll have us back! XXX"

Georgia, Louis, Nell and Mack [sent to us on their return home]:
"We've just got back from a week in Suffolk, in a house! Which was nice but nothing compared to the Belletents experience. We had such a LOVELY time at Belletents and just wanted to thank you again especially for the top night in the bar tent with Rose and your friends, I still can't get 'wish you were here' out of my head, I had to download it on Nell's itunes but Dave I have to say I prefer your version!!
We send you lots of love and hope to see you next year."

We have never been camping before but this is the only way to camp, FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC, despite the rain (there were loads of it) we will definitely be back.

The 2 babies could crawl frely it was safe even to leave them in the tents at night when we went to *the PUB tent*. The Pub tent is FAB - we met our feelow campers, the glamping queen Carrie and toyboy Russ & bar girls Ellie & Abbie (aged 9). We had so much fun at night playing cards games, drinking and chatting. The amazing DAVE & LAURA are what really makes this place special - they are warm, fun, hospitable and a great laugh. On saturday night they played amazing music with the band - guitar Dave & Laura tooting on the flute - it was really special! The whole week has been magical - even when it rained!"

Steve, Gaynor, Ellen & Spencer:
"Had a great week, booked out entire camp with 2 other families - see above. Bar tent was great feature esp given the weather we had - was great eating/drinking/socialising area. Kids loved being outside with friends- everything here you need for a great week's camping. Thank you Dave & Laura!"

Really loved the tents, they stood up to all that the elements could thow at us. Enjoyed Dave's ghost story, Luke will be telling that to everyone at school. The sounds of Michael Jackson will stay with us forever! Really enjoyed having the bar tent and camp fire where we could get to know two really nice families. A magical place with magical hosts."
Rowena, Ryan, Ellis & Alana:
"We've had such a lovely time. The thrill of surfing, moor walks, making new friends and eating lots of yummy food. This wonderful camp creates the best atmosphere to unwind, take a break from clock watching, getting back to what really matters - family and enjoying each bit of each day. Laura & dave here made us feel very welcome, and helped us to relax, knowing they were on hand to offer us advice, suggestions on where to go, how to light a camp fire, where to go for beautiful walks where we would see ponies running wild & venus fly-traps growing naturally. They were also very tolerant of our kid's new found love of Michael Jackson! (I'll see if I can find the CD & leave if for them as a memento of our stay!!:) - only kidding! Thank you ....xxx
Josie, Jerry, Theo, Bea & Tabitha:
"Six happy children, five camp fires, four days body boarding, three stormy nights - but only one Michael Jackson CD. A real week to remember. Thank you so much."

"I love the tents & it's really fun & Relaxing!"

Lisa, Andrew, Milo, Louis & Lara:
"Despite the soggy weather we have had a great week. There is real magic in your gorgeous Belle Tents. The Bar Tent a source of so much laughter, story telling, game playing, fierce table football and chilling around the fire. Thanks a million Laura & Dave for your warm hospitality!"
Claire & Quentin:
"Only a brief stay but well worth he journey from London - totally relaxing and peaceful in a lovely atmosphere. Thank you for making us feel so welcome from the word go. We'll not forget our first night here - the music was BRILLIANT and you were so kind! I've had the best night's sleep here than I've had in ages! Hope to return again with the kids, soon. Thanks."
Max, Pete & Corrine:
"A lovely friendly site, we loved spending time in the bar tent and thanks for the campfire on the last night in spite of the weather. The woodburning stove is a great idea. I couple of ideas to make it even better: A wetsuit wash and somewhere to lay them to dry and a clothes maid to hang up soggy towels would be great. We hope to come back & bring our mates next spring. Max"
"Thanks for the lovely campfire and here's and idea what will make it better: if you put a sofa down the side of the woodburning stove and maybe a little dressing up box for younger kids like around 4 - 8 that age group. Thank you for lighting the campfire on our last night. Dave and Laura you are so kind and took us around to do the farm animals and for making me feel as welcome as it's my home as well thanks, Corrine. PS Please say thanks from me for letting me help with the animals and the egg."
[Thank you for your ideas. We have now a place for hanging wetsuits and towels, and have dressing up skip for 'kids' of all ages. Dave & laura x]
Clare, guy, Connor & Kieran:
"We've tried them all, Yurts, Tipis, Tents, Log Cabins and now Belle Tents and here is definitely one of the best! The boys loved having a space of their own and the communal bar tent and table football are real bonding spaces which is what makes camping fun. The stove is a god-send in our famous 'BBQ summer'. For kieran the solar lights cured his fear of the dark. Maybe some solar fairy lights in the bedroom would add another special touch for the little ones (and parents so we can check on them in the night). How about some small kids board games and for a book swap shelf? despite the downpoars this is a beautiful relaxed place where all thoughts of and stresses of work & home were forgotten. At least for a while. Exactly what we neede. Thanks."
[Thank you for your suggestions. We now have a book swap shelf and are adding more board games to our collection. We will also consider having a string of solar fairy lights available for when needed. Dave & laura x]
Imogen, Liz, Mel & John:
"We have had an amazing weekend catching up with old friends around the campfire, epic games of table football and playing guitar - thank you so much for lending them to us! Fabulous sunshine, great hospitality and the perfect setting made this the best birthday yet!"
