Camping for disabled people
The main Disabled Camping Area is reserved for disabled people plus their immediate companions to ensure that the ‘prime’ space is available to those most in need of easy access etc. This is reserved for individuals and groups of up to 6 people including the disabled person. Space in this area must be pre-booked via our online application form (available in early May 2013).
Camping with a large group of friends
We are aware that in addition to requiring good facilities and a close proximity to the festival village, people with disabilities will want to camp with their friends. To enable this we have a second disabled camping area that is reserved for pre-booked groups but is slightly further away from the festival village areas. To use this area your group must fit one of the following profiles:
Up to 12 people including 1 disabled person.
Up to 18 people including 2 disabled people.
Up to 24 people including 3 disabled people.
Space in this areas must be pre-booked via our online application form (available in early May 2013).
If you are a group of primarily disabled people, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can discuss how best to accommodate you.
Can I have a power supply next to my tent on the campsite?
Only car battery power supply is permitted (and the battery needs to be removed from the car first!).
Camping is a bit difficult – do you know of any suitable local accommodation?
There are a number of websites that can help you find suitably accessible accommodation. Some like Visit Cotswolds & Severnvale and Accessible South specialise in accessible accommodation. Others like Where 2 Stay have special areas or search facilities that can help you find possible B&Bs and hotels.
Alternatively, one of the best sources of reasonably priced accessible rooms can be the ‘motel’ style chains. The following of which all have premises in Cheltenham or the surrounding area: Travel Inn / Travel Lodge / Premier Lodge / Hi Express
You can also call the Cheltenham Tourist Information accommodation helpline on 01242 517110.
Can I bring a generator to the campsite?
For numerous safety reasons petrol generators are not permitted onsite. You should only bring a generator if it is essential for medical/other special needs, and pre-arranged with the Fire Safety Team at email@example.com prior to the festival.
When you arrive you should contact the access team on site, so that they can ensure that you are appropriately sited, and the fire safety team know the location of the generator.
