Frequently Asked Questions
How long do you take to set up?
Teepees; Our set up times will vary depending on space and the number of teepees you have chosen for your party. Typically, a setup of 2/3 teepees would take around 1 hour, with larger setups of 4/6 teepees taking around 1 hour 30 minutes approximately. We will always aim to get set up as quickly and efficiently as possible but will not leave until your party looks perfect! Collections will be quicker with most collections taking around 45 minutes.
Bell tents; Our set up times will vary depending on space and access. ideally we aim to finish a set up within approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.

What areas do you cover?
Dream Away Teepees is based in Benfleet, Essex. We will deliver and set up sleepover parties within a 10 mile radius. We will take bookings outside of this area, however they will incur an additional charge, This will be discussed and agreed upon booking.
How much space do I need?
Each tepee with mattress measures approximately 160cmx90cm. if you would like to have a breakfast tray placed in front of the tepee this would require an extra 40cm. If you are unsure of the space you have then please feel free to send us a picture of your room. Many customers find they will need to rearrange some furniture to make space and we will do our best to work with you and make it possible to fit the number of teepees you require.
Do you need a parking space to set up?
Yes please! We will have lots of equipment on the day and will be returning to our vehicle frequently to unload so we do require a space on your driveway or very close to your property please.
What age range is suitable for the tents?
We recommend the tents being used by children age 5+.
Can the tents be used outside?
The A frame tents are only to be used inside so that we can ensure they stay clean and tidy for use. However, if you have a request for outdoor events then please contact us and we will discuss some options with you. For example, we have a large double lace style tepee which can be set up for outdoor Luxe picnic style set ups or alternatively we have bell tents for outdoor sleepover fun under the stars or daytime lounging!
