Alternative Accommodation Options at Sunrise this year


In 2008, Sunrise will host a range of alternative living accommodation options for the discerning festival-goer! No longer is it necessary to spend your days in a leaky (not that it will rain!) tent. Instead why not choose a life of luxury and book into one of our alternative options? At Sunrise Celebration 2008, we will have the following options available. More to be added soon.


Pod Pads: - A real, stylish and unique alternative to traditional camping. Pod Pads are built from wood and come fitted with carpeting, interior lighting and internal and external locks. They are weatherproof, soundproof, secure, safe and cosy. Ideal for storage as well! Pod Pads can stand alone or as part of a terrace - so you can stay alongside all your mates!



Tipis and Yurts - The opportunity to try the Tipi and Yurt experience is available through Hearthworks, coordinators of the Global Tipi Village. Tipis and Yurts are traditional nomadic tents, that benefit from spacious interiors, an open fire or wood burning stove, and optional furnishings. Great for families or groups of friends. For details of booking visit www.hearthworks.co.uk


Caravans - Caravans are perfect for giving you the comforts of home in a field. Those available will range from two to six berth, ideal for families, and will have the added option of an electric hook-up. These will be available to hire in advance of the event. For enquiries please contact simon@conceptproductsltd.co.uk




We are currently looking at including Myhabs as well.


Has anybody got any preferences as to what other accomodation options they may wish to see in the future? I have an inkling that people will be looking for increasingly more robust options than nylon tents to stay in. Hopefully the age of the disposable tent will soon be over...


One option we are looking at is bespoke design cabins - either flat-pack build or based permanently on site with wood burners, beds, etc. Would you be interested in such accomodation? Do you prefer nylon tents or will you be looking for other accomodation?
