It’s all in the detail

Our structures and extras have a number of unique features that allow us to offer the very best product and service, staying at the top of our game. This always has been at the heart of what we were trying to achieve with Country Tipis – creating unique, successful events with the support of a dedicated, professional team. It is so important to us to continue to build on our already strong reputation in outdoor events, so we thought we’d fill you in on a few features we’re most proud of:

Neat and tidy tipi link with custom stitched blanking panels

We’re lucky to be one of a handful of rental companies in the south of England who are supplied by The Tipi Company. Alongside the brilliant structures they created a full range of stitched-to-fit blanking panels that mask the main Tipi canvas links whilst offering an additional layer of weatherproofing. The eaves beam and side blanking panel pictured here on the left allows you to run additional tables in the eaves, giving you more space inside.


Handmade rustic tables with chairs to match

When we started Country Tipis around 5 years ago we looked at the furniture options available and weren’t blown away by what was on offer. As a result we decided to make our own tables and benches from scaffold boards. These have been incredibly popular over the years, so we added some European-made folding wooden chairs to our hire range. These were stained to match our tables and complimented with grey seat pads to be kind to your bum.


We’re available right from initial enquiry right through until your event day

We appreciate how important it is to have questions answered and your worries alleviated efficiently, so we make sure we get back to you as soon as we can. We’ll always come and survey your site for suitability prior to your event day to ensure there are no surprises on the day we set-up. One of our experienced crew will be on call throughout your event day so you can relax and enjoy yourself. If you’d like someone who has a knowledge of the structure to be around on the day we offer the option of hiring a “Tipi Man” who can assist you as required.


We offer a full LED professional lighting package to create a magical atmosphere

In our Tipis we include fairy lights, customisable LED up-lighters, chandeliers and a disco ball in our base price, as we know you’ll love the ambience they create! In our Celeste we offer the same without the disco ball and chandelier. All of our lighting uses LED bulbs so draw minimal power, meaning that we can normally power a 3 Tipi / 24m Celeste set-up from a single 13a house plug.


The Hammered Peg – our own bar service

In 2017 The Hammered Peg poured their very first drink, since then we’ve kept revellers at over 50 events well watered inside our structures. We love to see you having the time of your life, and with your bar you’ll get at least one experienced member of Tipi crew to keep an eye on everything.


Woven matted flooring

Our flooring is natural coloured with black fleck which creates a neat finish throughout. It follows the contours of the ground beneath it when laid as grassy areas are seldom flat. In certain circumstances we lay it on top of plastic underlay to prevent water soaking up through it.


Handmade in the UK

We proudly support UK businesses and try to buy locally wherever we can in order to minimise our carbon footprint. The Tipi Company hand make all of our equipment up in Bolton, stitching our rugged canvas together and refining the main legs from slow grown Scandinavian spruce.


Hessian edging to hide cables and grass

We use hessian around the edge of our tipis to neaten up the Tipi, hiding electric cables and any grass that may be showing. It also serves as a draft excluder around the edge of the Tipi.


Minimal strapping on the front

Whilst some structures require a large amount of strapping on the front, ours do not need a lot. As well as looking tidier, this also allows us to minimise potential trip hazards.


Non-slip wooden dancefloor

Get dancing on our non-slip wooden dance-floor, creating the perfect arena for you to throw some shapes. Its modular nature means that you can choose the dimensions to suit you. In this photo you can see the Tipi package from Entertainment, PA & lighting pros Disco Nyts which includes a rustic DJ booth alongside an upgraded lighting package.
