Yurts on the move...

Fred's Yurts are excited to be moving to a beautiful orchard just a short walk from the main festival site. This will mean that guests can get to and from the festival from their yurt much more easily than in previous years. If you have an hour or two to kill you can always pop back to your yurt for afternoon tea or to put your feet up.
