There is a Family Camping area within the campsite - please see Stewards.

Please note that that this year you will need to purchase a Campervan Ticket if you plan to camp in a sleep-in vehicle of any description. A Campervan Ticket gives access to space in the Campervan/Caravan field.

We recommend that you purchase a Campervan ticket if you are bringing a trailer tent. As cars are not allowed to enter the camping area, it will be difficult to separate your car and trailer. The car and trailer can stay together in the Campervan area.

All vehicles WITHOUT a Campervan ticket will be parked in the car parking areas of the campsite, and you will not be allowed to camp in your vehicle.

The pitching of tents with campervans is discouraged for safety reasons, however if your family group is too large to fit into your campervan or caravan, you may pitch one tent immediately beside the vehicle, as long as it fits into a 4m x 4m space.

On-site food and drink outlets available.
This is an outdoor event please bring appropriate clothing inclunding sun hats, waterproof clothing. Also bring sun screen and lotions.
