Hen and stag parties can now have it all - action and adrenalin sports by day, followed by luxurious glamping - or glamorous camping by night.

Honeybells tent and event company has teamed up with Gorcombe Farm activity centre, set in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside, to provide a range of on-site activities just a few metres from spacious canvas tents that are filled with all the home comforts a person could possibly need.

Adrenalin-fuelled activities on offer include all-sliding, all-spinning dirt buggies, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing, quad biking along 20 miles of track, team building and zorbing. There is an on-site swimming pool and hot tub to rest achy limbs, and a bar to get celebrations in full swing.

After a busy day, hen and stag groups can relax in spacious canvas bell tents complete with single or double beds with bedding, full carpets, mirrors, doormats, tables and indoor and outdoor lighting. Various tent packages are available to suit all budgets. The sumptuous luxury package provides sheepskin rugs, real double mattresses, duvets, pillows and towels.

There is a cafe on-site and extra catering can be provided to suit all needs. For a night out, the town of Blandford Forum is just a few minutes’ away, or the busier party resorts of Bournemouth and Poole are only 30 minutes’ away.

Honeybells also offer superb wedding accommodation packages that can sleep up to 400 people. In 2011 the company provided glamorous accommodation for singer Lily Allen’s wedding, and continue to provide accommodation at parties and corporate events for very well known individuals and brands.

Gorcombe Farm activities start from just £15 per person and multi-activity days from as little as £55 per person. Honeybells prices start from £25 per person based on a 4-person bell tent standard package for up to 2 nights.

About Honeybells

Honeybells tent hire company was born in 2010 out of a bad family holiday in Devon. Having had enough of shoddy B&Bs Ross McBay and Sam Gater bought a bell tent and realised they had found the perfect glamping experience. They created a simple website and got their first booking within hours. From then on, Honeybells has grown at an unprecedented rate as the luxurious experience and unbeatable level of personal service Sam and Ross provide becomes renowned throughout the wedding, festival and corporate events sectors. With a portable canvas-based “hotel” that can sleep up to 400 guests, Honeybell’s key contracts include Glastonbury, F1 Grand Prix and Moto GP at Silverstone, the 24 Heure and Classic races at Le Mans, Tour de France’s Velofest, Warwick Castle and singer Lily Allen’s wedding.
