Make the most of the festival and camp in Wychwood’s beautiful campsite area. Visitors can book a pitch and bring their own tent or caravan, or instead there is the option to book a pre-erected tent to save the hassle of bringing one along.
For an even more luxurious experience, festival goers can upgrade their accommodation by hiring a tipi, yurt or campervan. The campsite will also benefit from hot showers and a shop for the all-important supplies.
