Off-site – Camping at The Mote Camping Field & Live In Vehicles


Whilst technically “Off-site”, Camping at the Mote is adjacent to Mote Park and literally a few minutes ramble to the entrance of the Ramblin’ Man Fair arena.

Following  sell out years in 2016. 2017 & 2018 we return to Mote Park Cricket Club! As per 2018 – vehicles will also be parking on a separate area just a short walk from the campsite. To fully ensure that community feeling, we will not be marking out pitches but instead larger areas where you and your friends can pitch up together and meet likeminded fellow campers!

Every member of your camping party whether in traditional tents, a caravans or motorhome need to have an admission ticket and a camping pass. If you are bringing a car or motorbike, please purchase the suitable Vehicle Supplement. As space is extremely limited at Camping at the Mote please only bring a tent suitable to the size of your party. Please note, no live in vehicles will be permitted on the Camping at the Mote – Camping Field.

Returning for 2019 is our Camping at the Mote – Live In Vehicle Field. This field accommodates caravans & motorhomes and is only a short walk from the festival site. Customers staying in the Live In Vehicle Field will also have access to the Camping Field. Please note, we regrettably do not have any water or power hook ups available. As with our Camping Field, you will need to purchase your admission ticket and a Live In Vehicle pass for each member of your party plus the suitable vehicle pass.

Camping at The Mote (both Camping Field and Live in Vehicle Field) is 3 nights from Friday 19th July – Monday 22nd July 2019

Here’s how it works:
  • Purchase your admission ticket
  • Choose what camping pass you need – Camping Field A or Live In Vehicle Field
  • Select what vehicle you have (if any) Disabled customers should contact to discuss your requirements. Please note that you cannot park you campervan or motorhome in the car park at Mote Park itself.
