For those of you with SatNav, and wish to use it. The post code is BA5 3BB

Dogs

With the exception of Guide Dogs, no dogs are allowed on the festival site, sorry.

Travel

The general area is served by buses and trains – unfortunately, like many rural villages, very little actually comes to Priddy.

By Car

The post code to use in a Satnav is BA5 3BB.

If you are in need of petrol, then the there are petrol stations in Wells, Cheddar and Farrington Gurney.

If you are driving to the festival or looking for a lift, why not register at www.liftshare.com or www.freewheelers.com. Sharing transport, and costs, will help the environment and reduce the number of cars on site.

Parking

  • There is a large parking field on the edge of the village. Parking is only £2 per car (free if you have tickets) and is collected at the field entrance.
  • Campers can park near to their tents, 5 minutes walk from the festival.
  • Artists and Traders have dedicated parking adjacent to the festival site.
  • Disabled parking spaces are available on the perimeter of the site, please ask a steward for directions when you arrive in Priddy.

Train

Bath Spa or Bristol Temple Meads – both are roughly the same distance, about 15 miles away, with good bus links to Wells.
Castle Cary – about 20 miles with bus links to Wells via Shepton Mallett.

By Bus

Local Bus – we have one bus a week – on Tuesdays, so of little practical use when travelling to the Festival.
Wells and Cheddar – we are about 5 miles from Wells (which has good links) and 6 miles from Cheddar but you will then need to get a taxi to Priddy

Shops

  • There is a mobile shop that visits the campsite
  • The Priddy Farm Shop – selling farm produce, meat and locally produced food.
  • Mendip Heights campsite shop.
  • Wells has a couple of supermarkets, high street shops plus an excellent Saturday market.
  • Cheddar has 2 small supermarkets.

Cash Points

There are no cash points in Priddy.  Wells has plenty of cash points including the supermarket and all the usual banks. There are also cash points in Cheddar.
