Glastonbury is our home and it is the festival we love the most. For four years we′ve been successfully looking after discerning campers in our little meadow on the hill, with an orchard on one side and the festival on the other.
It’s not just the white canvas over your head we care about, it’s the whole experience. So coupled with majestic 18ft tipis, comes a fantastic bar and restaurant with daybeds to lounge on, tunes to listen to and newspapers to read as you devour breakfast and set yourself up for another day in the festival.
We have luxury loos, hot showers and a powder room to ensure you look your best. There’s a helpful crew and security on hand 24hrs a day providing you with peace of mind, and we’re just a ten minute stroll to the festival grounds.
If you're looking for a place to stay for Glastonbury festival, we believe we offer a truly unique service but don’t just take our word for it…
“To camp in style, sign yourself – and friends – up to Pennard Orchard’s boutique camping at Glastonbury Festival this summer. Sleep in real beds with real mattresses, white cotton linen, pillows and duvets in 18-ft tipis with room for up to four people. Plus clean toilets, hot showers and a beauty tent… now that sounds like our idea of camping.”
Our handmade tipis are 18ft in diameter and with 22ft poles mean they are wonderfully spacious with ample room to stand and walk around. They come fitted with specially designed rain hats, inner linings and thick ground sheets to keep you warm and dry at night.
Each tipi is lovingly furnished to ensure maximum comfort. Alex has travelled far and wide to source beautiful cotton quilts to keep you warm, linen in white Egyptian cotton and rugs or matting beneath your feet. A small apple crate table, bamboo towel rail and wooden coat hangers complete your tipi.
We have tipis that sleep up to four people in either single or double beds so get in touch if you're looking for where to stay for Glasto 2014.
“How lovely to retreat to your Heavenly sanctuary after a hot dusty day... for us everything was perfect, delightful, charming and helpful staff... and comfy beds away from it all.”
The Orchard Bar & Kitchen will be serving hearty and healthy breakfasts such as Eggs Benedict and muesli, fruit & yoghurt.
The bar will be open all day and into the night, serving smoothies, cocktails, some blinding Bloody Marys and of course our local cider. Newspapers and a phone charging point will also be available. All geared to ease you back into the world of the living and set you up for another great day at the festival.
“As a Glastonbury virgin I was somewhat sceptical about feed times but on day one we were introduced to Pennard Orchard, a fantastic big tipi tent surrounded by smaller rentals. Well we ate and drank there 3 times away from the hot frantic festival... and the crucial all day breakfast with my favourite brunch dish eggs benedict.”

Guests have access to:
“Your staff were all lovely, showers and toilets were immaculately clean, and those wonderful hammocky daybed things in the chill out area were the most comfortable piece of furniture I have ever lain upon!”
Each of our handmade tipis, which sleep up to four people in either single or double beds, come complete with proper beds, linen in white Egyptian cotton and beautiful quilts to ensure you have a warm and comfortable night's sleep.
Ease back into the day with a fantastic breakfast (complimentary) and maybe a cocktail or two!
TIPIS - GLASTONBURY 2014
Available from 11am on Thursday 26th June to midday on Monday 30th June.
Prices include VAT, breakfast and up to two parking spaces.
Please note that standard Glastonbury Festival tickets are not included with the tipis and will need to be bought through the official channels.
If you would like to reserve a tipi, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our position allows easy access in and out by car, away from the main festival traffic.
The festival gate is just a ten minute walk along the track, part of which involves a short but steep climb, so those who find walking hard may prefer the longer route round to Gate C. We’d be happy to chat about this and advise on the best route. As you can see below, the Pennard Gate takes you straight into the top of the festival near The Park and Stone Circle which are also great places to finish the night before a stroll home to the comfort of your bed or a nightcap at The Orchard Bar.
“I was really impressed with how friendly everyone was and how pretty much everything had already been thought of It’s so easy for these types of things to become impersonal and stale. Count me in for a tipi next year.”
