DESCRIPTION

Hawkwell is situated on the hill directly below Worthy Farm itself and like the adjacent Michael’s Mead camping field, it too has quite a steep slope (35+ degree angle, in some places).

On the plus side of things, looking down the hill toward the heart of the Festival can make for some spectacular scenic views – and as well as being located close to both the Pyramid and John Peel Stages, it is also fairly accessible from the Festival Bus Station at Pedestrian Gate A, as well as from eastern Gates B and C.

PROS & CONS

👍  PROs
  • Spectacular scenic views of the site.
  • Easily accessible from the Festival Bus Station (Gate A).
  • Located between two of the major music stages (Pyramid & John Peel).
  •  

👎  CONs
  • Uphill toil back to your tent each night.
  • Steep incline in some places (35+ degree angle, by some estimates), especially for those pitched near the top of the hill.

⚖️  SUMMARY

For those who don’t mind sleeping at an angle and would prefer to be within chucking distance of some of the main stages; along with the all-important transport links in and out of the Festival site – A good alternative if Michael’s Mead is full.
