DESCRIPTION

Travelling just northwest of Pennard Hill Ground we arrive at Park Home Ground, and although less popular and not as central as the neighbouring Pennards, this field could serve as a worthy alternative nevertheless.

While being a stone through away from the Other Stage and having easy access to The Park, it’s worth keeping in mind that in 2014 this field was largely amputated to make room for the installation of Arcadia – which is literally located on its doorstep and therefore endures a large amount of foot traffic and loud noises till the early hours of the morning.

That said, on the plus side of things, this camping ground is surrounded by toilets and water points (which could actually be both a plus and a minus, when you come to think of it) as well as a Medical Centre at the top of the field. It also borders the old railway track and thus gives easy access to some of the main stages in the Southwest area of the Festival site – with the added benefit of being located close to the new Co-op pop-up supermarket which was introduced in 2019 and is located to the south of the field.

This field is best accessed via Gate D to the west. Those of you entering the Festival site through Gate A, C or G-d forbid C will to be mentally prepared for a long trudge.

PROS & CONS

👍  PROs

  • Close to the Other Stage and The Park area.
  • Plenty of toilets and water points.
  • Close to the Medical Centre.
  • Easy access to some of the Southwest areas of the Festival site via the old railway track.
  • Near the Co-op pop-up supermarket.

👎  CONs

  • Due to its popularity space is snatched up – fast!
  • With Arcadia being your imidate adjacent neighbour it’s loud and busy – so don’t expect a peaceful night’s sleep until at least around 3am when Arcadia powers off for the night.

⚖️  SUMMARY

A good alternative to Pennard Hill Ground unless you’re a sleepyhead, which in that case this site is definitely not for you – it does, however, attract like-minded people.
