 Pre-Pitched Tents



A quieter home for more live-in vehicles. Enjoy a serene and secluded experience with stunning views to match! Our Frontier campsite for live-in vehicles is located in front of Lowther Castle. The pitch space is 7 metres x 5 metres with compost toilets, water point and chemical disposal point. We only allow converted vehicles in the fields if they have living accommodation with fitted sleeping facilities and either fitted cooking or washing facilities.

It is a 10 minute walk from The Frontier to the entrance of the original Live-in Vehicles field, which is itself 10-15 minutes walk from the arena, ground conditions dependant. To assist we will be laying on a land train to shorten the route.

Frontier tickets are available here.
