We are delighted to have you staying with us in the Poto House accommodation this year at New Wine! The purpose of this email is to provide you with information regarding your dormitory stay.

  • On check-in you will receive your dorm room number. Your name will also be on your dorm door.

What to Bring

Although you’re glamping, you still need to bring much of the same things as the campers. Check the what to bring list for things like food, toiletries, towels, bedding and pillows.
Your accommodation does include a mattress on your bed. It also has various kitchenettes and a dining hall with fridge/freezer, toasters, kettles and some microwaves. Space will be limited and you’ll need to bring all your own cooking equipment and food in order to cook meals in the Campers Kitchens at the festival site!
