About this Festival

A Place Apart

OK, so festivals are not just about location - but Port Eliot's hidden corner of Cornwall makes our festival experience like no other. Seeing as you'll be coming here for a mini holiday, we thought we'd pull together a mini 'brochure' to whet your appetite for the stunning surroundings in which you'll be cutting loose this July...

Boutique Camping

Landscaped by Repton, Port Eliot's beautiful parkland takes in rolling pastures, ancient woodland, stunning estuary and river views, shady rhododendron groves, hidden mazes and walled gardens. It's a real treat to camp out here for a few days - but if you're not sure about the 'camping' bit, then why not check out one of our more comfortable options?
