As part of our terms and conditions we do not permit makeshift campervans/caravans on site at our events. Many won't have sufficient ventilation, water or door separation, and the risk from the gas and fire is an obvious one. The decision that your campervan or caravan meets the criteria is made by the Campervan area manager.

Definition of a Campervan / Caravan
1.There must be a door that provides access to the living accommodation.
2.It should be a living accommodation vehicle with fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted cooking and/or washing facilities (A screwed in bed with a washing up bowl and/or cooking facilities would not be permitted - they must be fitted).
3.There must be a water storage tank or container on or in the vehicle, and/ or a permanently fixed cooking facility within the vehicle powered by gas or electricity.
Please note the following:-
