What size are the camping pitches?

There are no specific plot sizes in the main campsite but we would ask guests to please be considerate when pitching tents. Although there are no specific pitch sizes, you should arrange your tents in such a way to minimise the space you use.  If you are using an unreasonable amount of space you may be asked to re-pitch or take some tents down.

As is the way at all festivals you should expect to camp close to your neighbours - you're almost certain to get on.  

Please don't try to reserve space for others, if you wish to camp with others please meet in the car park and enter the campsite together.
Those with a caravan/campervan permit will be allocated 9m x 6m pitches. Specific plots will be allocated upon arrival. We would ask guests to please respect the allocated 9m x 6m pitch, although of course we understand there may be instances where vehicles exceed these dimensions slightly.
