13 Garden Teepees For Summer 2023

Garden teepees create a fun, festival feel in your home's outdoor space, making them ideal for use during a garden party or social gathering. They’re also a great place to relax on lazy days, whether you’re curling up with a book or enjoying an afternoon snooze.

Below, Country Living gives you the lowdown on garden teepees, along with our top picks.

There are various types of garden teepees available, so think about what you'd like to use it for before making your purchase. If it's primarily for children, go for a little pop-up number. These are like a cosier version of a Wendy house that can be taken inside during bad weather.

Bell tents are more suitable to camp out in – handy for taking with you on any summer staycation, festival trip or weekend hiking expedition.

Finally, there are the luxury hanging options. Essentially a cross between a teepee, an egg chair and a hammock, these are perfect for lounging in on long, hot afternoons.

It depends on the design. Bell tents designed for camping are, naturally, fully waterproof, but the others on this list may not withstand living outside in the elements full time. Make sure to check the manufacturer's instructions, but we'd recommend bringing them inside in anything other than light rain.

From stylish bell tents to space-saving pop-up designs, here are our favourite garden teepees for relaxing outside all summer long.

With a spacious five-metre diameter, this is big enough to fit eight people, making it a great option for a family glamping trip or a garden party. Crafted from organic natural cotton canvas, its water-resistant material will help to keep your camping gear safe during any impromptu rainstorms, while a thick PVC groundsheet will protect the floor from dirt and damp. Mesh windows and a mosquito net will help keep pesky insects out.

Ditch the traditional green camping tent and opt for this bright stripy design instead. It comfortably fits four people and, if it gets a little stuffy at night, it has four windows to let in some air. For £100, it’s good value too.

If you’re going for pretty rather than practical, this elegant tent is perfect. It'll make a great photo backdrop for outdoorsy weddings and garden parties – and kids will love to curl up inside it, too.

This will add a welcome splash of colour to your home's garden and give the kids somewhere to sit and shade themselves during family barbecues. The inner sheet is removable, so it can be used indoors, too – no need to pack it away come the end of summer.

Here’s another sweet option for the little ones, complete with a sweet star motif. It’ll offer the perfect spot for kids to sit and play while you’re busy firing up the barbecue. It isn’t waterproof, but it’s suitable for indoor use so you can always pop it up in the living room if the weather takes a turn.

Mountain Warehouse’s teepee-style tent is currently 50% off, bringing it down to £99 from £199 – a bargain! Made for family camping trips, it should comfortably fit four people. It has a removable canopy, meaning it can be used as a sunbathing spot or a cosy shaded hideaway.

Pet owners should love this one. This mini teepee will provide dogs, cats and even rabbits with their own comfy outdoor space, away from the sun’s glare. Suitable for indoor use, animals can still enjoy it when the Great British weather inevitably takes a turn. A removable fluffy base cushion is included for extra cosy factor.

It comes in three sizes.

If you’re simply after a sheltered spot for the garden, look to this canvas tent. Three adults can fit inside, so it's a good place for an afternoon picnic and a catch-up. It also folds down into a small carry bag so you can pop it into the boot of your car for beach days. Take note though: it isn’t fully waterproof so it’s better for garden use and day trips rather than long camping holidays.

So, this one is less aesthetically pleasing as some of the others on this list. But if you're after a teepee-style tent you can take with you to festivals and camping trips (as well as pop up in the garden, of course), this is a worthy contender at a great price. It has four ventilation windows, a built-in groundsheet and high vis guy ropes so your tent is easy to spot at night, as well as storage pockets for essentials.

This is a lovely looking hanging option – and it's customisable, so you can get the right fit for your needs and budget. The teepee itself is £299, but you can add a hanging stand and mosquito net for an additional £150 and £110 respectively. The large size means it fits three to five adults happily, making it a good option for the whole family. It comes with a slimline carry bag and is machine washable for easy cleaning.

Here is a great option for creating that festival vibe at home in your garden or, of course, you could take it to an actual event. This is big enough for up to three adults and has a ground sheet that curves up around the edges to prevent water from creeping in during soggy days – very handy.

Need something a little bigger than the above? Here's a larger model for groups of up to five.

Okay, so this fringed canopy isn’t a teepee, but it has a similar festival feel. It’ll create a chill-out zone in the garden and is sure to make an impression during any social gatherings or birthday parties. It’s height adjustable and comes with a matching carry bag for easy transportation.
