Glastonbury is our home. For six 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 stylish, comfy accommodation, 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 (or quick buggy ride) 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: beautiful cotton quilts to keep you warm, linen in white Egyptian cotton, towels and rugs or matting beneath your feet. A small apple crate table, bamboo towel rail, wooden coat hangers, electric lights and power points for phone charging 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 2016.
“We love staying at Pennard Orchard. Glastonbury without staying in those comfortable Tipis would not be the same!”
Iwan Wirth - Hauser & Wirth
We work with carefully selected providers to offer beautiful handmade yurts accommodating two in a double bed or five people in singles or doubles. They come complete with proper beds and mattresses, cotton linen, duvets and pillows along with bedside tables, towels, electric lights and phone charging points.
“I enjoyed this year at Pennard Orchard even more that last year. The camp is improved and the space very comfortable. Staff were friendly and quicker to serve. Everyone agrees it is the place to stay. Many thanks,”
These sumptuous framed tents are three metres squared and come with either a double or twin beds. They are affectionately furnished with wonderful double-thickness cotton mattresses, linen, duvets and bed spreads for additional warmth at night. Coir carpet, bedside tables with electric lights, towels, and power points for phone charging complete your boudoir.
“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!”
These lovely five metre diameter bell tents for two come in either a twin or double set up with wonderful double-thickness cotton mattresses, linen, duvets and bedspreads to keep you cosy. There’s an LED lantern, bedside table, rugs, floor cushions and fairy lights. Please note there is no electric power or towels provided with the bell tents.
“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.”
We have a very limited number of airstream caravans available for those who want to live it up Hollywood-style. These stunning converted trailers have a double bed and their own shower compartment so you can spruce yourself up in the morning before having to face the outside world. (No loo on board). It has its own kitchen wth a seating area, plus other mod cons such as heating, air-con, TV and DVD player, surround sound stereo system with iPod connector. The ultimate in camping!
“Thank you for the most amazing time at Glasto. Really was one of the best weekends I have had for a long time.”
The Orchard Bar & Restaurant will be serving healthy and hearty brunches such as restorative Full English or Eggs Benedict, stacked American pancakes or organic muesli with fresh fruit and live yoghurt, and freshly baked pastries.
Brunch will be served until 2pm when it will be replaced with an à la carte menu to satisfy cravings late into the night.
The bar is open all day and into the early hours, serving smoothies, cocktails, some blinding Bloody Marys and of course our local cider. Newspapers and further phone charging points 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:
“Just to say that you guys were awesome, the place was awesome, the facilities were awesome, the tipi was awesome...... Are you catching a theme here???!!
Honestly the whole experience was fantastic... I can understand what hard work it must be for you and the team leading up to the festival but honestly you should be proud of what you achieve over those few days.
It was faultless... and there's VERY few things in my life that I can say that about.”
We have a number of glamping accommodation options to choose from for Glastonbury Festival 2016; all available from 11am on Thursday 23rd June to midday on Monday 27th June.
Prices include tasty brunch for each guest, VAT and parking.
Please note that standard Glastonbury Festival tickets are not included with the accommodation and will need to be bought through the official channels.
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 (or quick buggy ride) 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.”
