Because the world is not flat.
Tentsile was conceived as a range of portable treehouses, combining the comfort and versatility of a hammock with the security of a tent. Take your camping to a new level!
We aim to release a new model each year, bringing you a comprehensive range of suspended shelters for all.
WHAT IS TENTSILE
At Tentsile we create some of the world's most versatile tents. All our tree tents are made to be suspended over the ground but in dry conditions can also be pitched on it, like a conventional tent. Whether you are looking for an all terrain camping solution, a safari safe house, a mountain, beach retreat, or a portable treehouse that avoids all planning restrictions, with the Tentsile tree tent the sky is the limit.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS
The unique design, provides comfortable and spacious accommodation in any environment. The Tentsile Stingray tree tent can be suspended above the ground and so is not restricted by ground conditions or topography. This advantage also provides separation from water logged areas, insects, snakes and major predators.
HOW IT'S MADE
The structure comprises an adjustable frame of webbing straps with UV resistant PU coated and waterproof polyester and nylon fabric panels. The frame is held in tension by webbing straps that meet at each of the three anchor points, and under the floor to divide the space into individual hammocks
HOW CAN YOU USE IT
All Tentsile tree tents provide shelter with no ecological footprint or environmental impact. We recommend that the tent is set up no higher than 1.2m/4 feet off the ground for ease of access and to minimise risk of injury. The Tentsile tree tents come with all elements needed for instant set-up and a Owner's Instruction Manual.
The Tentsile is adaptable for uses such as:
|Humanitarian Disaster Relief
We have invented these tree tents because we love our planet and hope that we will inspire you to reconnect to Nature.

Treehouse architect and inventor Alex Shirley-Smith had a vision: to allow people to inhabit the trees in 21st century comfort. He founded Tentsile Ltd in 2010 and began designing and prototyping lightweight portable treehouses, able to be set-up between any three trees. In March 2012, a number of leading green design forums featured Tentsile's larger tents, praising their unique advantages and holding them up as flagships of 21st century innovation. Tentsile featured on prime time national television and became viral within days. The public reaction has been phenomenal - it seems you all want to hang out in trees!
In April 2012 the company was joined by designer and co-inventor, Kirk Kirchev, with the joint vision to create a simpler and sleeker production model for the mass market. After a year of prototyping and testing in March 2013 we launched the Stingray - our first production model. This is Tentsile's most versatile and refined creation to date.
We created a new category of product. It sits in the space between hammocks, tents and treehouses combining the practical features form all three in an incredibly simple and beautiful solution. It was born out of our love of nature, freedom and desire for exploration.
