CarFest North Camping 2018

Well we are certainly getting excited here in the Pitch & Canvas office. 

This year we had yet another amazing CarFest weekend with you all in July and can hardly believe we are now getting ready for tickets for 2018!

Dont forget you can reserve your pitch for next year on the website and then confirm once you have got your tickets. Demand is already high for 2018 due to the wonderful feedback we have had this year so reserving your pitch means you wont miss out. 

We are working hard to ensure Carfest North Camping 2018 at Pitch & Canvas will be as good if not better than previous years. 

The countdown is on - Yahooo!



Thursday Night Stopover

We are offering a 1 night stay for £25 on Thursday night so you can get to CarFest early on Friday morning. Being less than a mile away,  you will be able to leave as early as you like and take just a short drive to get to the event to beat the queues. We have designated a separate field just for Thursday night stop overs so you don't need to worry about disturbing the other campers arriving late at night or leaving early the next morning. You can take full advantage of all the main site facilities, luxury toilets and showers, as well as our Thursday night Welcome Barbecue and licensed bar.

Start your weekend relaxed with no rushing and enjoy all we have on offer. A warm welcome awaits and a great start to your CarFest 2017 weekend! 


Good luck everyone for the CarFest tickets tomorrow. We have everything crossed for your here at Broad Oak Farm. 

Don't forget we are the closest site with hook ups and facilities to Carfest North with a licensed shuttle bus for those who don't want to walk. 

2016 was such a great weekend on the site and we promise 2017 will be even better :-)


Good luck all 

From all of us at Broad Oak Farm 

CarFest 2017

Following the success of 2016 we are now working hard to make 2017 even better. Next year will see not only the return of our luxury showers but luxury toilets as well. Our fabulous shuttle bus driver Steve will be back on duty for the weekend and he has arranged for a bigger bus on the evening runs to get more of you back in one trip to reduce the waiting time. New for 2017 will be our welcome BBQ to be held on Thursday night, who wants to cook after a long journey so come and sample our delicious BBQ. Also we have some great activities in the pipeline for when you're chilling on the campsite. Fancy a pony ride round our lovely fields and quiet lane? A local Trekking school will be on site to give you a taster of Pony trekking or for those that can already ride, enjoy a countryside experience. 

You can now provisional book a pitch and then confirm your place when you get your tickets, send us an email and we can forward you the details.

Don't forget to like and follow us on Facebook (Broad Oak Farm Camping and Caravanning,  and Broad Oak Farm) to keep updated with all the latest news from down on the farm.

Looking Forward To Meeting All Our Visitors

Over the last few weeks it has been tremendously busy here at Broad Oak Farm organising our Carfest North Campsite. What has made it such an enjoyable job is amount of lovely people we have had the pleasure of booking in. What a great bunch of people we have coming to say with us, we are really looking forward to it. It feels like we have made some great friends already and can't wait to put a face to the name when you all arrive.

This week we have seen the arrival of 2 new baby chicks on the farm from our rare breed hens. Visitors will be able to come and meet them over the Carfest weekend and buy some of our lovely free range eggs. Now though  we need some ideas of names for our chicks - any suggestions?

Its getting busy now and we only have a few pitches left so if you still need to book we recommend you do so as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  

From all of us down here on the Farm!

Wow What A Day!

The last wave of Carfest tickets went on sell this morning and boy have we been busy! Its taken us all day just to reply to all your lovely enquiries and answer the phone. We are super excited now and cant wait for the weekend to arrive, we've had some great conversations with you all today and cant wait to meet our guests that have booked to stay with us. We have a limited number of pitches left, but they are going fast! If your still looking for somewhere to stay we recommend you book quickly so as to avoid disappointment.

Friday is host to ABC, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, and Texas. Saturdays line up is The Corrs, James Morrison, and KT Tunstall, wrapping up nicely on Sunday with Billy Ocean, Squeeze, and The Feeling.

What an amazing line up. Rumour has it there may be more acts added yet so cant wait to see if they do and who they are?
