Hay Festival Accommodation - Hay on Wye

Many thanks for a stupendous Hay 2018!

Thank you to all of our wonderful guests both old and new for coming and being so supportive It makes putting on the campsite at Hay such a pleasure. 2018 was by far our best year to date.

We have the field confirmed for next year which is great news and we will be going on sale for 2019 shortly. We will make sure that everyone on the Hay mailing list is notified when we are taking bookings for 2019 before we go on general sale through the website

So in case you haven't already, make sure that you sign up HERE  for priority booking when we go on sale

For next year we don't plan to grow much bigger than we already are - we still have space for a few more tents whilst still keeping the campsite spacious. We are in negotiotiations with a local sauna supplier to have a super deluxe glass fronted sauna for next year so watch this space. Now that we have a proper 240v mains connection we will be looking to have a luxury toilet trailer to compliment our compost toilets. Thank you to everyone who has provided some feedback - we take this all very seriously and on board

We can't welcome you all back to our field once again for our 10th anniversary at the Hay Festival 2019
