It’s a tent you can rely on totally in storm-force gales or in blazing heat. The tipi's shape and advanced design makes it really secure in high, gusty winds, and the ingenious ventilation solutions controls the inside climate on those hot summer mornings when the air stands still, as well as those days when the Northumberland climate closes in! Their symmetrical shape with a low centre of gravity keeps the tents stable when the wind gusts. Tentipi® Nordic Tipis are actually more secure in high and gusty winds than most other tent designs.
Warm & cosy
The elements can really dampen your enjoyment of an outdoor life, but not with one of our Tentipi® Nordic Tipis! You will enjoy the romance and comfort of a log burning stove inside the tipi, which creates a pleasant and cosy experience — even in harsh weather. The advanced ventilation system and the highly breathable cotton/polyester fabric, offers you that longed for, dry place when you’re wet and cold — and the log burning stove eliminates damp and creates a warm, cosy atmosphere.
The Tentipi® Nordic Tipi's ventilation and air-flow system enables the safe use of interior log burning stoves. Carbon monoxide is not’t hazardous in a well ventilated environment as it rapidly combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide. Our tipis combine ground positioned air vents and vents in the roof, creating a natural chimney effect as the rising air column from the fire exits the tent, drawing in fresh air at ground level. The ventilator cap is controllable from inside the tent. This design principle has been safely used for thousands of years.
Our tipis are the same type used by professionals in the most extreme conditions, in ice-fields, in storm-force gales, on top of glaciers, in blazing heat or on “the coldest journey in the world” — a 3,500 km, ten-month trek across Siberia made by a Swedish expedition. If they can handle that, they can certainly ensure that you are comfortable on your family camping trip at Herding Hill Farm! They are renowned for: Storm resistance, effective ventilation, mosquito protection and log burning stove
Pre-erected for your arrival
Why not rent one of our tipis rather than bringing your own tent. We are the only site in the UK where you can hire one of the fabulous Tentipi® Nordic Tipis. They are so much more than a tent! They are atmospheric, spacious, flexible and, above all, different! They are loved by people who want to recapture the romantic nomadic lifestyle. They are are pre erected and located at thebottom of our site in a private tipi village in a tranquil setting. Staying in one of our tipis will give you a true 'wild camping' experience.
The Tentipi® Nordic Tipi's amazing design has been brought up to date with 21st century technology, but still retains the most elemental features of the original. Each tent has a log burning stove. For safety reasons, children must be supervised at all times when in the tipis due to the heat of the chimney and stove. We sell logs for the stove as well as kindling.
Our four Safir 9CP tents are fitted with a wood floor. You just need to bring your own beds, bedding and other essentials. These can sleep upto four people.
Note: No cars by the Tipis, and sorry, no pets.
