CAN WE MAKE A GROUP BOOKING?

You may book up to two units of accommodation per transaction. If you would like to group more than 2 tents together (of the same type) please include a shared group name in each booking you make. Where possible we will endeavour to meet requests for friends and family groups to be located together if booking the same accommodation type, however this service cannot be guaranteed.

Worthy Pastures will provide the perfect base camp for a family break. Whilst we welcome groups (Covid regulations permitting) the focus is on providing a safe, comfortable and relaxed family environment, and is not suitable for stag/hen/raucous gatherings, and you may be asked to keep noise to a minimum after 11pm by the campsite stewards. Please note – no amplified live entertainment will be offered.

WHEN CAN WE CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT OF WORTHY PASTURES?

Check-in is open from 1pm on your stated day of arrival. Please don’t arrive before this time, and instead arrive within the time slot you requested when booking. All tents must be vacated by 11am on your stated departure date.

WHAT ACTIVITIES CAN WE EXPECT ONSITE?

Campers will be free to roam around the designated site and to the boundaries of the farm to walk, cycle and enjoy the natural landscapes and elements of the site.

Please note, there may be a chance that some activities and infrastructure may not be as freely available as we’d like by mid-July.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING WITH US?

Only bring what you really need.

However you arrive, you’ll inevitably have to carry your stuff to where you camp. And as part of our Love Worthy Farm, Leave No Trace campaign we’d definitely encourage you to only bring things which you can take home

  • Roll mat / inflatable mattress – the tents come unfurnished
  • Sleeping bag / Bedding / Pillows
  • A torch – whilst festoon will light the main paths, Worthy Pastures will have less ambient light than the Festival
  • A reusable water bottle, to fill up from the drinking water taps on site
  • Wellies or sturdy boots in case of poor weather
  • Toilet roll
  • Warm and waterproof clothing (it can get cold at night) and there are no laundry facilities at the campsite
  • Sun tan lotion
  • Field games (there is plenty of space in the fields for gentle games like badminton, cricket, football etc)
  • ID – Original ID documents (not photocopies) are needed for Challenge 21
  • Face covering / mask, if required indoors by current Covid-19 regulations.
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Please do bring bicycles for use, but please note, electric scooters are strictly prohibited

REUSE, REDUCE, RESPECT. In a stand to make our world more sustainable, we ask you to avoid single-use items and opt for reusables options where ever possible and help us look after the land on which the farm stands.

DO WE NEED TO BRING ID?

Only the lead booker may be required to show valid photo ID to check in your group.

The onsite bar has a challenge 21 policy. If you appear to be under the age of 21 you will need to show valid photo ID to be served alcohol.

WHAT CAN'T WE BRING WITH US?

  • Please do not bring more than you need. Remember you’ll need to take all it home again
  • Only bring food and alcohol for personal consumption
  • Please avoid the use of disposable wipes. Wipes – even biodegradable wipes, which quickly breakdown into micro-plastics – are problematic environmental pollutants. Plant fibre-based biodegradable wipes release greenhouse gases when they decompose, so we would like people to really try to use alternatives. A washcloth and a bar of soap works wonders!

Please do not bring any of these prohibited items:

  • No animals (except registered guide dogs)
  • No generators
  • No drums
  • No nitrous oxide (laughing gas). As a contraband good, under the Psychoactive Substances Act 2016, and as a source of littering, this substance is not permitted on site

WHAT IS THE BBQ AND FIRE SAFETY POLICY?

We allow BBQ’s and fires as long as they are off the ground. Small fires in braziers are permitted at your tents.

Please be careful not to keep your fire too close to the tent and avoid lighting fires in windy conditions. Small embers could easily burn the tents canvas which would result in a damage charge.

We will be lighting a communal fire in Kings Meadow and Williams Green if you’d rather not have to manage your own.

In recent years there have been a number of fatalities and injuries in the UK as a result of people bringing BBQs or camping stoves into their tent or caravan and being overcome by carbon monoxide. Please make sure you read these top tips from Gas Safe Register to help keep you safe.

The following BBQ safety advice contains all the essential points to keep in mind when cooking with a BBQ:

  • Never use a BBQ indoors
  • Don’t take a lit or smouldering BBQ into a tent. Even when you have finished cooking with it a BBQ can still give off fumes that can give you carbon monoxide poisoning. You should always leave it outside if possible.
  • The cooking area should be well away from residential dwellings and be well ventilated with fresh air.
  • Be aware of the signs of carbon monoxide poisoning:
    • Headaches
    • Nausea
    • Breathlessness
    • Dizziness
    • Collapse
    • Loss of consciousness
  • Always use your BBQ in accordance with the operating instructions.
  • All campervans should be fitted with a carbon monoxide detector.

DO THE TENTS HAVE ELECTRICITY ?

Sorry, no, we are not able to provide electricity to the tents.

DOES WORTHY PASTURES SERVE ALCOHOL?

Yes, a fully licensed bar will be available at Goose Hall.

A ‘Challenge 21’ policy for alcohol sales will be operated. If you look under 21, you will not be served alcohol unless you can prove you are over 18 – by presenting ID. The following are acceptable forms of ID:

  • UK Driving Licence
  • Valid Passport

If you don’t want to bring your passport or driving licence, use a PASS ID. See http://www.pass-scheme.org.uk/ for details.

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Free mains-supplied drinking water is available from the taps scattered around the site. Please re-fill your re-usable water bottles regularly.

The dealing in or use of illegal drugs is not condoned. Drug enforcement laws are as applicable as anywhere else in the country. Neither anti-social nor illegal behaviour will be tolerated and participants will leave themselves liable for eviction from the site.
