A: Grass, lawn or dirt is required to set up the bell tent.

As we use tent pegs to secure the tent, we are unable to utilise any other surface.

We also request that prior to setting the bell tent up, you let us know of any water, gas, sprinklers or electricity that may run through the tent set up area

Our bell tents are waterproof, however on booking we will discuss with you a back up plan if the forecast is for terrible rain and wind.

The bell tent is like any other tent, although waterproof, once the roof or walls are touched, they become a weak area and the water will drip inside the tent.

COVID-19 and Safety Questions

A: Dreamy Sleepovers take great pride in how our equipment is cleaned (as it’s what I spend most of my time doing).

All linen including cushion covers are laundered in a sensitive washing powder and anti bacterial hygiene rinse. All linen is line dried and then put in the dryer for the last part.

All decorations and tents are wiped with Anti bacterial wipes or sprayed with an antibacterial spray.

(We are also following the Government advise on COVID 19 cleaning procedures, please feel free to contact us and I can run through with you the additional sanitation measures we are under taking)

Q: Is Dreamy Sleepovers insured?

Q. Do you have a privacy policy?

A. We take your privacy and that of your guest seriously.

Dreamy Sleepovers will not share any of your personal details with anyone.

Under no circumstance will we take photos of your children.

We do however take photos, (completely focused on our tents or hired equipment) of all of our set ups to share on social media.
