Why not Camp?

The idyllic campsite sits beneath the Prestbury Hills just a short walk from the main arena, complete with areas for caravan, campervans and camping options .

Facilities for campers include hot showers, a campsite shop, café, and a lock up to store any valuables.

Setting up is nice and easy, as campers can drive on to the campsite to set up their tents before moving cars to the free car park. When the weekend is over you can also drive back on to the campsite to pack away, so there's no need to carry heavy tents and camping gear any distance. For any FAQs please see here
