With the British summer comes festival season. From May to September our countryside is filled with music, arts, culture, good food, fun times, sunshine and the odd muddy puddle. There’s something for everyone from the established festivals that we know and love to a whole new breed of boutique festivals. Once you’ve decided which festival you’re going to, thoughts soon turn to other details, who else is going, how will we get there, and where will we stay?
Festival-goers of the past had to forego life’s simple pleasures, nice toilets, hot showers and a comfy place to sleep. The modern festival-goer is spoilt for choice. Our sites include everything from a concierge and porter service when you arrive at your luxury glamping accommodation, to a la carte restaurants, cocktail bars, and the Yurtel spa, as well as chauffeur driven transfers to and from the centre of the festivals.
Our glamping tents offer the most luxurious festival glamping that money can buy. With many different options to choose from, each of our en-suite huts, luxury yurts and bell tents have their own unique style. Our attention to detail is well renowned, so you can expect a special mix of fixtures and fittings, hand-crafted ash furniture, sumptuous duvets and white cotton linen.
At some festivals, all that our guests ask for is a guaranteed plot and plenty of space to pitch their own tent or a pre-pitched tent. These low-cost options take away the hassle of having to be first in the queue to claim your piece of the festival real estate. Free to arrive in style and focus on the festival acts that you want to enjoy.
Our luxury yurts and bell tents are a feature of the festival season. Glamping for large groups of 8 guests or more is available with the option of your own private mini-camp within the Yurtel field. You get to choose from all of our 5-star add-ons that you would expect from Yurtel and enjoy them in a communal space reserved for just you and your friends.
For the ultimate festival experience, our exotic Bedouin tents, deluxe bell tents and luxury yurts have to be seen to be believed. All of our boutique camping accommodation is splendidly spacious for 2 people. Our luxury beds are so comfortable that you won’t want to get out of them, the one thing that might draw you out is the thought of a nice hot shower.
Our glamping packages vary from festival to festival. We offer hospitality tickets with some of our packages, others require you to purchase your own festival tickets. Whichever option you choose, all of our glamping sites contain the first class facilities that you would associate with a nice hotel. Heavenly beds and plush pillows, luxury showers and loos are included as standard.
You’ll have electric lighting and sockets to charge your phone and plug in your vital festival accessories. You’ll have on-site parking, 24-hour security and a non-stop shuttle service to whisk you in and out of the centre of the festival. Within the festivals themselves, we provide a VIP rendezvous point, a place to meet friends and family before setting out to mix, mingle and enjoy the delights that the festival has to offer.
When it comes to The Yurtel fields we have thought of everything. Our famous breakfasts will set you up for the day ahead with a buffet of hot and cold delights. Our lunch and dinner menus are designed by some of the UK’s hottest chefs. We use the finest ingredients, fresh and locally sourced. Our chefs cook everything on site, showcasing healthy, flavourful dishes worthy of the finest pubs and restaurants.
Our bars are stocked with refreshing summer drinks. Craft beers and traditional ales, incredible wines, local ciders and premium spirits. Our talented barkeeps have a solid knowledge of the classics and can introduce you to the summers’ coolest cocktails. So you can enjoy a Bloody Mary with the newspapers and a seasonal sundowner at the end of the day.
Relax in a deckchair as you discuss your festival schedule for the day ahead. Warm yourself by our fire bowls as you relax with friends after a full day out. Sip cocktails in our festival Spa bar as you chill out in a wood-fired hot tub. Our DJ’s will entertain you with a vast selection festival vibes, mixing multiple genres throughout the day.
You can rely on our bespoke festival travel service and our local knowledge to get you to and from the festival. We do all we can to ensure that you arrive at our secure private parking areas with the minimum of fuss. When you arrive and depart our porters are on hand to load your belongings on to our Yurtel buggies for a swift hassle free transfer in and out of your accommodation.
