About The Tipi


The Stratus 72 is a beautiful, strong, completely waterproof and versatile structure.

The Tipi is constructed of natural canvas and wooden poles, Whether you want to bring the outside in, enjoying the long, hot days of summer with open sides and a glass of Pimms, or cosy up with warm skins and open fires on a snowy winters evening, our tipis are all season structures designed to stand up to the unpredictable British weather!

Measuring 10.3m (42ft) in diameter, several tipi’s can be joined together in various ways to create an atmospheric and unique space.

Catering tents/extensions can be added on to the tipis to make extra room for a buffet area, bar or disco equipment as needed.
