As part of the Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival there will be the option to camp on site from Friday 2 July midday to Monday 5 July 2021. The site will be a stone’s throw away from the main storytelling, family and music tents.

Camping onsite at Dinefwr will be a magical experience as we immerse you in the natural wildlife.

Dinefwr is the first parkland to be a designated National Nature Reserve (NNR) in Wales and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It’s a microcosm of Welsh heritage and natural history. Stay with us under the stars this summer and as well as taking in some extraordinary storytelling, be amazed at the local wildlife you will encounter including bats, badgers and views from the spectacular deer park.

While we are fortunate to have these magnificent views and wildlife, Beyond the Border will also be providing the essential camping amenities onsite (toilets, showers, washing up facilities, waste disposal points, chemical toilet disposal point).

There will be direct access from the campsite to the festival which will be only a short walk away, and there will be overnight security and the campsite team will be on hand to support you during your stay.

For those who need to charge mobility scooters/wheelchairs there will be charging facilities on site.

If you choose to camp on site please respect and follow our Camping Rules.

And if you run out of battery on your mobile don’t fret…we have phone charging facilities for 2020! Just make sure you tag us in @BTBStorytelling and say thank you!

We are also offering a limited number of spaces for Living in Campervans/Caravans on site. We have spots available on a first come first served. Please note we are unable to hook you up to the mains.

To book make sure you have already purchased the Festival and Camping Weekend Ticket options and add the ‘Living in Caravans/Campervans.’

If you already have a ticket for the festival and just want book your campervan / caravan spot just choose the ‘Living in’ option as this will be a top up to your ticket.

If you choose to camp on site please respect and follow our Camping Rules.

We want to keep the rules for the campsite to the absolute minimum but if you could adhere to the guidelines below, it helps us run a better and safer site for everyone.

Whilst we understand that groups of friends often want to camp together, the reservation of large areas of space by people (often those who arrive earliest on site) is not felt to be in keeping with the spirit of the Festival.

Campers will be expected to comply with fire regulations.

Please note that it is a condition of our licence that the lit roadways in the campsite remain clear at all times and that adequate space is maintained between tents at all times.

Rubbish and recycling bins are provided in the campsite, by the toilet and shower facilities. Please keep these areas tidy. Please don’t leave litter for others to collect.

Fire buckets and barrels will be distributed across the site. Please DO NOT use these for depositing rubbish; you put both your safety and the safety of fellow campers at risk.

Incidents requiring more than very minor remedies should be reported to the Campsite Manager.

Access to the deer park is restricted to the hours of 10am to 5pm and any field where the white park cattle are kept are strictly off limits to avoid possible injury from these animals.

Parkland Dinefwr is a working farm and as such will have livestock in adjacent fields, therefore all dogs should be kept on a lead whilst on site.

For security reasons, access to and presence on the campsite is limited to those who hold tickets for the festival/camping valid for the time you are on the campsite.

For safety reasons petrol/diesel generators are NOT allowed on site. If you require power for a mobility scooter etc please contact us for advice.

Gazebos are permitted but additional caution must be exercised if yours does not have a BS Kite Mark label attached, as it is likely that it will not comply with any fire-rating regulations. Additionally, gazebos MUST be securely anchored down. Should gazebos come loose and cause damage to fellow campers’ property, the owner of the gazebo will be liable for damage caused.

All tents/caravans/motor homes must be sited as directed by the campsite staff. Please ensure that you do not set up outside your designated area.

Campfires and ground-level barbeques are not allowed.

Anyone behaving in a threatening, offensive or otherwise unacceptable manner will be removed from the campsite.

Anyone found with illegal drugs will be ejected from the campsite and the substances concerned confiscated and handed over to the police.

Finally, please remember that the site is returned to agricultural use after the Festival. Please try not to leave metal tent pegs or other debris and rubbish that can cause harm to the livestock that normally live there!

The Campsite office is staffed 24 hours a day throughout the event; if you need advice please don’t hesitate to ask.

If you would prefer to stay off site, the idyllic town of Llandeilo is less than 5 minutes away in the car. Surrounding Dinefwr are a range of small hotels, Air BnB’s as well as caravan and glamping sites. For a list of local accommodation please visit:
