The Campsite

Barefoot Festival™ is held in the sumptuous grounds of Prestwold Hall, North Leicestershire. Prestwold Hall is a magnificent country house and grounds, nestled in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside. Located in the heart of the Midlands it is close to Loughborough, Leicester and Nottingham. With easy access by road and rail, Prestwold Hall is the ancestral home of the Packe-Drury-Lowe family. The site is beautiful, tranquil and a fine example of the great British countryside a perfect location for our event.

Barefoot Festival™ do not provide any camping equipment and you must provide and erect your own tents. Pre-pitched luxury tent packages are available from 'Festival Glamping' please visit their website or call Roger on 07564 827224 for further information.

We provide fresh running water and plenty of regularly cleaned portable toilets, although it is advisable to bring a spare toilet roll just incase. We do not provide showers at Barefoot Festival.

Barefoot Festival is a family friendly event therefore the whole camp site is a quiet camping area - there will to be no amplified music or drumming after 11pm.

For health and safety reasons we have arranged for cars to be parked in a designated area a short walk from the campsite and there will be a small car parking fee.

Although the walk from the car park to the campsite is short, we understand that it can be challenging with large amounts of equipment and/or with children in tow. Therefore we offer a trolley hire service which will be available from just outside the main car park.

Those in Campers, Caravans or Trailer Tents can stay in their vehicles in the camping area for an additional fee - NO CARS ARE ALLOWED IN THE CAMPING AREA AND YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SLEEP IN YOUR CAR. PLEASE NOTE - TENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE CAMPER, CARAVAN OR TRAILER TENT AREA. Friends who are camping in tents will be directed to camp in a separate area. Small awnings are allowed.

Once pitched, we cannot allow movement of Campers/Caravans/Trailer Tents whilst the Festival is open due to health and safety regulations. We ask that you do not move your Camper/Caravan/Trailer Tent until Monday morning. The area is strictly limited and you may get your Camper/Caravan/Trailer Tent blocked for the weekend which also restricts movement until the site is closed.

A 5 mile an hour speed limit is in force at all times while on the campsite and hazard lights must be kept on when moving your vehicle. Once you have parked your vehicle please try to avoid moving it unless absolutely necessary and all engines must be kept switched off once on site.

As you can imagine the clean up task after a Barefoot Festival™ is considerable. Please help us by taking your rubbish and recycling home with you. Please respect the various recycling points around the festival site by placing correct items in the appropriate waste bins.

Please don't bring glass onto the festival site as the land is used for grazing animals at other times.

Due to the 'back to nature' concept of Barefoot Festival™ we ask that you do not bring either sound systems or generators with you.

Unfortunately due to health and safety there are to be no camp fires in the camping area. BBQ's and Camping Stoves are allow as long as they are raised off the ground and all rubbish, including used coals, are to be taken home with you to dispose of.
