A small but serious tent, perfect for a camping couple or small family wanting maximum comfort and durability. Packed with all the same great features as our larger canvas tents, the one bedroom size doesn’t make any compromises in quality. The generous sized front veranda is your additional protection from the elements and can be enclosed with the optional Universal Sunroom to make this another room. The 180cm wall height adds another dimension to the spacious feel of this model when compared to similar tents on the market.

Optional veranda awnings can now also be purchased to fit this tent. These add a huge shaded area for protection from the sun. Great to help keep the family out of the sun on those hot summer afternoons. Check the new images to see this great new feature!
The Heavy Duty PVC floor combined with the 340GSM canvas roof ensure this tent will be a family heirloom.
This tent is made from top quality materials, is packed with great features and is great value for money!


  • Internal storage pockets.
  • Power cord inlets.
  • Colour coded poles. Quick pitch system, with pole number stamping.
  • Elasticised toggles. For easy operation to hold up the rolled window covers.
  • Premium Quality YKK zippers. Renowned as the worlds best zippers and appropriately used on our best tents to ensure the zippers last as long as the canvas.
  • Locks. Swivel hooks located up high above the doors. The hook clips on to the zip slider to prevent opening. Great for keeping the children in.
  • New heavy duty Polycore 150 mesh windows and doors. This is a polyester core mesh with a PVC coating. Very strong mesh, much stronger mesh than no-see-um mesh used in dome tents. No point making a quality canvas tent with a mesh that won't last as long as the canvas.

  • Heavy duty zippered carry bags X 2.
  • Packed size: 97 x 36 x 34cm (Canvas) 128 x 25 x 19cm (Poles)

    Tent itself looks to be made very well. Although I’m unsure that the front and rear support poles are meant to bow so much? And, even if you are a seasoned camper, read the instructions AND SOAK your canvas tent before first use!!! We only opened the instructions to get the diagram for the poles once we were away and didn’t soak our tent and it made assembling very difficult as everything was very tight. I believe this should be on a label on the bag or in an email sent to customers on purchase as it is not common knowledge if you’ve never owned a canvas tent.

    Hi Sonia, thanks for your feedback regarding the seasoning. When pitching the tent next time try placing the spiked feet approx 20cm away from the base of the tent. This will keep the support poles straight. Any issues give us a call on 0800 25 00 25. We are happy to help.
