Camping... Yeah sure. It’s at California Barn on the hill above the town of Swanage. We have room for 100 campers if we all squeeze in. Small campervans are cool, big ones probably not. You get toilets, cold water, fire pit with a DJ, and big views across the sea. We may well have enough money for showers this year.


Not Camping... What’s wrong with you? Anyway there is a barn/chalet, and a shed on wheels available at California barn, feel free to book it directly... Elsewhere in and around town you will find countless hotels, B&Bs, bunk house ( and a YHA.

BE COOL.... This is a very low tech way of getting places allocated... So we are all going to have to be a little cooler than the guys who organise the TDF. I have 100 camping spots at California farm. But there is camping nearby... once they sell out use the list below... the first campsites on the list are nearer the main campsite, the last places are nearer the Square and Compass... it’s all local....

CAMPERVANS... If you bring a camper, email me at and just tell me, and we... I mean” I” will allocate some space. No electric hook up, no thrills. No room for big campers... bay window size VWs are cool. It’s a tight lane so no room for Iron Maiden Tour Buses unless you are Iron maiden... then it’s OK.

FAMILY CAMPING... want hot water, showers, posh stuff like that... go for the overflow camping options. You are welcome at the main campsite, but women like soap and fancy shit.

KIDS... man the kids are alright... bring your little people with you, no charge.
Racing kids... sorry kids 18 YEARS AND OVER ONLY.
DOGS... they are cool and welcome.
OTHER HALF etc...  see prices for stragglers etc below.

Bunk house in town... t
And more B&Bs and hotels than you can wave a stick at...
