World Inspired Tents

Unit 17 & 18 
Coxleigh, Barton, Shirwell, Barnstaple, Devon, EX31 4JL, Barnstaple, Devon
Up to 1000 guests
Our story began in the summer of 2006 when Donna and Ed Wright discovered the tipis at a country fair. They instantly fell in love with the beauty and natural feel of the tents. The seed was sown and in July 2007 World Inspired Tents was born. The first dedicated tipi rental business in the South West.

After ten years, and with many hundreds of events behind us, World Inspired Tents has changed considerably from those fledgling days. We have built a reputation for being one of the most professional, reliable, well-equipped and friendly tipi hire companies in the country, but we remain every bit the family run business that was launched nine years ago.


We’ve grown, not just in size, but through the knowledge and experience we’ve gained along the way. We are a team of people who really know what we are doing, and we really love what we do!
