You will draw your own (cover) sheet and you will sleep in a sleeping bag brought by yourself or under your own duvet. If you are six people, an extra bed will be placed on arrival. If you have fewer people, depending on the model, you can roll up a partition wall for extra space.
An electric heater is present in the tent. Smoking is prohibited in our GlamLodge tent.
Rent-a-Tent has two different models of sleeping tent, so depending on the model the beds can be arranged in the length or in the width direction of the tent. In the front part of the tent a so-called cockpit with raised edges is attached to the ground sheet. This proprietary Rent-a-Tent development has a special construction that makes it possible to place the edge near the door during use during the day or to raise it upwards to create a watertight cockpit to prevent eg (nocturnal) flooding. This own invention has proved its worth in various places. In this cockpit is a floor covering so that you are not on a cold floor and the children can play nice if it is a day with poor weather.
