Spirits Intent

We are tent makers, making tipis, yurts and other canvas tents since 1998. A nomadic life style has always been close to our hearts and, through the years, we have lived in the tents we made and traveled in the live-in vehicles we built, leaving a pattern of campsites and tents behind us. All our tents are made to a gloriously high standard and our yurt cover making skills are second to none…

We are amongst the most affordable yurt makers in the UK, but probably make some of the best quality tents in the country, we try to use more and more traditional methods, we now use our own mobile sawmill and cut our own wood.

Our main speciality is yurt covers, we provide covers to most of the UK yurt campsites, even some yurt makers rather come to us than make their own, we are probably the best cover makers in the world!, in the last years we have created a complete after sales service, to help people to maintain their tents over the years, more and more campsites come to us and never have to worry about their covers again, we make yurt covers from measurements, provide the best canvas proofing available, and in a way it shows because we have clients get our services and come back year after year, we call them 3 times a year as part of the service to check what they might need.

Our time is also shared these days between the UK and Italy, Where we are building the Spirits Intent Centre for Transformational Events. It is called Heartland and is in Abruzzo, Italy: a wild hill between two rivers, in front of the “sacred mountain”-  the Majella.

We have created the heartland non profit association to help develop marginal rural areas in central and Southern Europe, and have taken glamping where it matters, we believe that Eco-tourism can make a difference in those rural areas, where whole villages are being left abandoned, its easy to become a member and there is so much to do……

If you too are called to this work: get in touch.
