Tentsile’s award-winning camping hammocks and tree tents excite and inspire campers around the world.

Unlike traditional tents, which need to be pitched on flat, level, dry ground, Tentsile Tree Tents and Giant Camping Hammocks use a patented three-point anchoring system to suspend your tent off the ground.

Each tent and hammock is built with a tensioned base for comfort and offers an unrivalled camping experience and way to spend time in the great outdoors.

The modular system allows for setups to be personalised by extending, stacking and connecting with other Tree Tents and hammocks to create multi-level tents.

The versatility to set up camp above water, on steep terrain, on uneven ground - all with a zero footprint, the sky really is the only limit.

Our Story

Portable Treehouses

Alex Shirley-Smith, Tentsile’s Founder, was born and raised in London and trained as an Architect, specialising in sustainable living and low impact shelters.

In 2013, still living in the UK, he decided to follow a childhood dream and his lifelong passion for trees by designing and manufacturing the first prototype Tree Tent. 

Our journey began when after years of designing and building tree houses, our founder Alex-Shirley Smith (architect) wanted to create a lightweight and portable tree house for outdoor enthusiast to have a portable, off-the-ground home wherever they are.

From backyards to backcountry, he wanted to encourage people to experience the great outdoors and promote the wellbeing it offers. Spending time in the natural world is good for us and our relationships. Quality time, digital detox time, connecting with nature time, is important for us all.  Our products have been developed to provide a fun and unique way of escaping our hectic lifestyles - whether that's in the local park, in your backyard or in a National Park.

The First Tree Tent

This idea quickly evolved into our flagship model, the Stingray 3-Person Tree Tent which was picked up, displayed and sold at MOMA, New York. It was an instant hit in both design and camping circles, and very quickly sold out.

It was from here that Tentsile quickly grew and developed a devout following of customers. Tentsile Tree Tents combine the comfort and versatility of a hammock with the security and multi-person functionality of a tent, allowing you and your tribe to camp in more unique places than ever before.

Tree Tents, Giant Camping Hammocks and Stacks

We've come a long, the team has grown, as has our product offering. We now have a range of Tree Tents from one person to five people, as well as giant hammocks, insect mesh walls, waterproof walls and ladders which can be used together to create a ‘stack’.

The versatility of a Tentsile, means you can create a multi-story camp ground with friends and family – the possibilities are endless!

We have our own custom-built production and R&D facility in China, employing 20 highly skilled production staff. This allows us to maintain our high-quality standards, which can be attested by our customer feedback and loyalty towards our products.

As we’ve grown, the team have maintained our drive for sustainability and the protection of trees. Since introducing their pledge to plant trees with every tent sold, we've planted over 900,000 trees and intend to reach our goal of 1 million trees planted.
