How long do we get the site for?


All Wedding Festival bookings are Fri 09:00 – Sun 15:00. We do not offer the site for mid-week weddings. Lifestyle Retreats vary per event and Camping Adventures are either Fri 09:00 – Sun 15:00 or Sat 09:00 – Sun 15:00


Can we get legally married on site?


Yes, our Pagoda is licensed for wedding ceremonies. We ask all couples to arrange their own marriage officiant.


Can I bring my dog?


Crockstead Fields is situated on working farmland and therefore regrettably we cannot allow dogs onsite, except registered guide dogs.


Can my friend bring their camper van?


All vehicles must be left in the car park at the top of site (about 5 min walk to the main field). Camper vans are not permitted in the main field or camping field.


What do we do if it rains?


Our marquees create excellent canopies for indoor space and our ceremony area can be covered with a large parachute for wedding ceremonies.


How many guests can we have?


The Wedding Festival package can host up to 150 guests, seated on round tables in the main marquee. We allow for a further 50 guests in the evening.


Lifestyle Retreat weekends are focused on one-to-one time with our instructors and therapists and are therefore limited to 30 guests per weekend.


Camping Adventure bookings are flexible, please speak to a member of the team.


Can I use my own caterer?


Yes, you are more than welcome to use your own caterer for Wedding Festival and Camping Adventure bookings. Lifestyle Retreats are all-inclusive of plant-based meals.


Can we do BYOB?


We do offer BYOB for Wedding Festival bookings with a corkage fee of £1500. Alternatively, we operate a fully licensed bar


For Camping Adventures BYOB is permitted, please speak to a member of the team to discuss prior to your visit.


Can we have a live band?


You certainly can. Amplified music must end at 23:00 and is only permitted on one night of your stay. We suggest all bands supply their own PA system as our Bluetooth speaker system is designed for playlists and DJ’s.


For Camping Adventure bookings, a Temporary Events Notice may be required to accommodate a live band. A member of the team will be able to advise upon booking.


What time does the bar shut?


Our licensed bar shuts at 00:00 on Saturday and 22:00 Friday. We kindly request all guests respect our neighbours after this time.


What are your payment terms?


For all events we take a £1000 save the date / security deposit then 50% 6 months prior and the final settlement 1 month prior. Your security deposit is on top of your event hire fee and will be returned within 7 working days upon successful handover of the site.

Our Eco Commitment


Crockstead Fields was awarded the Locasse grant in recognition of our commitment to becoming a zero-waste, carbon neutral Festival Site.


Through the development of our own vegetable patches on site and a focus on sourcing locally, we can effectively reduce our carbon footprint whilst providing the best quality in-season produce for our guests.


We have multiple recycling points throughout site and endeavour to minimise waste throughout every element of the planning and delivery of our events.


All drinks from our bars are served in reusable plastic cups and we do not allow disposable plastic on site.


We are currently planting 50 oak trees with a commitment to planting another 1500 trees in 2021.
