Car Passes and Live In Vehicles

We ask for a contribution of £25 per car and £35 per live in. This money goes back into the land fund to maintain and preserve the 50 acres of land owned by Buddhafield. Passes can be bought online here.

We ask:

  • That you do not bring alcohol, drugs, unauthorised sound systems or dogs onto the site.
  • That you respect other campers. There is no official "Quiet Camping" area, as we are not able to enforce this.
  • As much as possible, we want to protect the soil and watercourses on the site. Therefore, we ask that you bring cleaning products such as hand wash, shampoo, shower gel and washing up liquid that do not contain Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, Dioxane, Parabens, Propylene glycol, Diethanolamine or DEA.
