The festival site at Great Tew lends itself perfectly to 4 beautiful camping areas:
This is the main campsite that the majority of Cornbury Festival goers choose to camp in – a tented campsite set it stunning surroundings with showers, toilets, catering and nightly entertainment
To camp on the general campsite, please choose ‘Weekend with Camping’ tickets.
As with previous years, we will have a ‘Quieter Camping’ field for those of you who would prefer not to be disturbed by the campsite entertainment, or who have young children. The ‘Quieter Camping’ field is a tented campsite only and live-in vehicles cannot be parked here. Please do not purchase a ‘Quieter Camping’ ticket and hope to bring a live-in vehicle too – they are 2 separate camping fields!
To camp in the ‘Quieter Camping’ area, please choose ‘Weekend with Quieter Camping’ tickets
Campervans & Caravans:
If you would like to bring your campervan (caravans & trailer tents permitted), you will need to purchase a ‘Campervan Permit’. A ‘Campervan Permit’ allows you a pitch of 6m x 7.5m in which you will be able to park your campervan, caravan or trailer tent, and put up an awning and/or pitch a small 2 man tent if required.
VEHICLES OVER 7.5m IN LENGTH BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT WITH THE CORNBURY FESTIVAL OFFICE ONLY. If you need a larger pitch (because for instance you plan on bringing an RV, Motorhome, Winnebago or Horsebox that exceeds the pitch size), please DO NOT purchase a Campervan Permit – you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Cornbury Festival Oversized Campervan”. We will then confirm a price based on the actual vehicle size and reserve the right to disallow vehicles that we think might be inappropriate for the site.
Acorn Copse Campervan Field
Due to overwhelming demand, we’re delighted to announce that we have opened a second campervan field, ‘Acorn Copse’. This campervan field will have the same facilities as the main campervan field (toilets, showers, Elsan waste tank etc) but it is approximately a 1km / 15 minute uphill walk from the main festival entrance and campsite bar. NB. All of the information in this section applies to ‘Acorn Copse’ campervan permits.
A campervan must be a purpose designed and constructed unit with fitted sleeping facilities and either washing or cooking facilities on board. Our stewards will be strict on this and any vehicle that is not deemed a campervan will be asked to park in one of the festival car parks.
The festival does not permit sleeping in the car parks overnight.
Unsuitable vehicles include unconverted vans, estate cars etc
Caravans and trailer tents are permitted, however cars will not be permitted to park within the campervan field.
A trailer tent must be made by a manufacturer and must not be a modified trailer with a tent attached to it.
The festival operates a strict fire risk management and each campervan pitch will be checked and inspected by our stewards and fire marshals to ensure it remains within the allotted space, and complies with fire safety standards.
To camp in your campervan or caravan, please choose ‘Weekend with Camping’ tickets (do NOT choose ‘Quieter Camping’ tickets), and a ‘Campervan Permit’
Nestled amongst the trees on manicured lawns, there will be plenty of accommodation to choose from. Please go to the Glamping page to see the different options available.
