Where to Camp?
“Free Camping is the large, flat, open field near Gate suitable for pitching tents. There is also a secondary camping area in the main area for pitching tents. If neither of these take your fancy, you are welcome to pitch your tent where you like, except the locations listed below.
Where not to Camp?
Please avoid camping:
- anywhere near the houses or main house
- on the big lawn in front of the main house next to the lake
- in a pre-allocated placement area (e.g. theme camps and art)
- under old trees (these are marked with any combination of signs, longer grass and / or roped off)
Don’t pitch your tent in a walkway or a fire lane. If you do accidentally pitch in a walkway or fire lane, you will be asked to move and if we can’t find you when we discover it, we will be left with no alternative but to move it for you (sorry!).
Tents must be pitched 6m away from vehicles for mitigating fire risk and preventing carbon monoxide fumes from being inhaled by those in tents. This also applies to generators.
Any vehicles camping in the main camping areas must be parked on the edge of the marked access routes facing outward into the access route so that they can pull forward safely without being blocked by tents.
Once vehicles are parked please avoid turning on engines, particularly at night when people are asleep.
There is a designated area for live in vehicles and it would be preferable for live in vehicles to park in this area. If Live-in vehicles are mixed with the tents, you MUST observe the safety advice provided above and observe a 6m distance between vehicles and tents. Please note that there are two camping areas positioned directly opposite the live-in vehicle area, so if you would like to be close to your friends in tents, it is still possible!
Driving and parking
Be very careful driving vehicles on site. Please drive at a walking speed of 5 MPH.
There is a car park for parking of vehicles and we recommend that all non-live vehicles are parked here. Vehicles doing drop offs may only use the access routes and must not drive through the marked out camping areas.
Please avoid driving vehicles during sleeping hours in Free Camping (10pm – 8am).
The main area is home to Theme Camps, Art Installations, Secondary Camping (tents only) and Accessibility Camping. Vehicle movements in the main area are restricted during event week. Any vehicle movements during event week that are not working vehicles will require a Ranger escort. Vehicles parked in the main area must be as close to the tarmac lane as possible in order to be able to pull forward easily. If there is wet weather you must not drive on the grass in the main area (protected grassland).
