AN AirBnB host has listed a tent in his back garden as a “glamping experience” and charged nearly DOUBLE the price of a hotel room.

The flimsy-looking camping tent in East Sussex will set you back £76 a night.

Guests will get to sleep on a thin mattress and have only three blankets to keep themselves warm.

Boasting a hot tub and a fire pit, the holiday let is available for anyone wanting to visit Brighton and Hove from January.

At that time of year the average temperature in the seaside city can drop to 3C.

What would be perfect for a muddy festival field, actually costs more than a night in a nearby four-star beach-front B&B.

The host, Azz, explains on the AirBnB listing: “It might just be a tent but hidden in a lovely garden with sea views.

“Right in front of your tent is a firepit with garden furniture, and a hot tub nearby .

“Free off road parking, you also have access to the facilities in the house (hot shower, toilet, full kitchen facilities).

“Enjoy a beautiful sunset from the garden, which is lit with a changing colour LED spotlight.

“And on certain nights, you can be entertained by the host‘s fire pit soirée with traditional Asian dances.”

The tent is overcrowded with a bedside table, cabinet, chest of drawers and cuddly toys.

Pictures from the listing also show the blue canvas tent topped with several brightly coloured blankets.

The so-called bed doesn’t seem to have a sheet or a quilt on it – but just a few random pillows.

AirBnB has been contacted for comment.
