Auckland Bell Tent Backyard Glamping Glamping

Campsites and holiday parks are always busy and full with chaos. With Backyard Glamping in Auckland you can control the noise and naughtiness, deciding who camps and how many for how long.

We are fortunate to be in a glamping business where our bell tents are largely used in the noble pursuit of bringing people closer to inspiring places, people, and cultures. Every night, thousands of people settle in and around their tents and share ideas, stories, and intimate moments; enhanced by the ability to escape the walls we’ve built around us that separate us from the elements, the wild, and each other.

SNM is built on a camping community of individuals who understand and appreciate the power of getting outside and communing with nature, and sharing that experience with others. It is our mission, and our pleasure, to provide the canvas around which these ideas, emotions, and experiences are shared.

Social media is typically only a small glimpse of what any camper knows to be the larger story of what happens outside and how those experiences shape us.

When it comes to slumber party hire, we have a wide range of glamping tents to choose from. Our backyard camping tents are perfect for a fun and unique sleepover party experience.

Who is Backyard Bell Tent Glamping for?

We've created Backyard Glamping Hen's parties and Girls’ Nights In, A big Rugby game or Poker night; a novel place for the boys to crash instead of taking a taxi or sleeping on the sofa. Backyard Glamping might even be for kids birthdays, a mid-week sleepover or anything of the like. Take your child’s sleepover party to the next level of 'instagrammable' wow factor. So get the tribe together for a great night/day in for any occasion where you require that extra special accommodation experience.


How does backyard glamping work?

Easy. Let us know when you want our luxury accommodation and where you want us to set up the camping spot. We come around to your location, we provide all the glamping gear you need and want, set it up, tell you how to use it all, then when you are ready we take it all down again.


The Best Camping Games

Entertainment for the Bell Tent Glamping experience. Whether for keeping children entertained, rainy days, or entertaining nights, canopy camping games are a must. Since you already have enough to pack, we selected classic games that require little or no equipment to play.

Some games that you can organise - or we can help with - during your backyard glamping experience include:

Camping Scavenger Hunt

This timeless game is great fun for children but if adults want to play too you have to call it “Geocaching”. The basic premise is self-explanatory but interesting educational twists on the game can involve map & compass reading, GPS, phone app maps or very simple cardinal direction-finding. Playing at night with flashlights can make even a small playing area more interesting.

Camp Frisbee

The lowly frisbee is one of the most under-rated must-have items in your camping game-gear. The frisbee can be used in games for the young to the young-at-heart, many of which don't even require throwing the frisbee, such as water races. From tag, dodgeball, golf, full-contact keep away and basic target-throwing practice with a stack of cans, the frisbee is in many ways more versatile than a ball.

Camp Dice

The camp game kit must contain tabletop games. Insofar as simplicity & portability go, dice are hard to beat. Entire books can be found on dice-related games for the young an old from as simple as speed-counting exercises for toddlers to complex strategic games similar to chess.

Glow In The Dark Ring Toss

This simple & easy to pack DIY game works well whether around the campfire or stuck in the tent. Every dollar store carries the snap & shake type of glow in the dark bracelets such as those found at carnivals. Get a box & make them into rings. Similar to horseshoes, using bottles of any type, throw the ring from a short distance and make it land around the bottle.

Twig Castles

Not so much of a game as it is a pastime, Twig Castles is fun for the young or anyone with a creative mindset. Bring water soluble glue, tape and or rubber bands. Find twigs and try to make little sculptures out of them. Kids obviously love this one but don't be surprised if you find your inner artist along the way as well.

And so much more...

A bottle of glue, a bottle of water, and a frisbee. Camping is about enjoying the simple pleasures in life. Leisure time games among friends and family are also an-too-forgotten pleasure that is best when kept simple.


Why Backyard Glamping?

Nature creates the camp setting and backdrop for the Backyard Glamping story. Nature is where everything starts and where it still happens today. We provided more affordable and more accessible camping in people's backyards. Some people don't have tents, the time, want to upgrade to luxury camping or simply want to do something new in New Zealand. Nature in NZ is where the needs were defined, the pegs were planted and ideas came to life. It is where good camping gear is important – equipment that suits your needs, ambition and economy. These are the glamping bell tent ways.

Our cotton cottages have been an invariable part of our business strategy to bring camp creativity, common sense and rationalism into luxury camping. Our accommodation aim has always been to provide high-quality camping products at affordable prices. We are proud of every glamping product because we know for a fact that our camping products will provide you the best possible accommodation experience, no matter how harsh the landscape and climate you choose to challenge when creating glamping memories and exploring the world – the SNM way.
