Pre-Pitched Camping & Glamping at the 2019 Bristol International Balloon Fiesta – Official Campsite – Located at Kingcott Farm, just outside Ashton Court.
Pillow is delighted to announce it will be operating an official campsite at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. Our new official campsite will be located just outside Ashton Court Estate, with a path leading from the campsite to the heart of the event. Our site will be located at Kingcott Farm, on Beggar Bush Lane, at the northern edge of the Ashton Court Estate. Our campsite will have parking (for campers only) toilets, showers and security. This will be a quiet and family friendly site and as such we will not be permitting large group bookings. We will offer a selection of pre-pitched tents, and also plots for you to bring your own tents in our quiet, or family zone. Please click on one of the options below for more details. PLEASE NOTE, THERE IS A 25-30 MINUTE WALK TO AND FROM THE FESTIVAL DOWN (AND THEREFORE BACK UP!) A HILL.
If you are looking for a campsite close to the Fiesta, these pitches are perfect for you. Pitches are available in our quiet zone or in our family zone. These pitches are available from just £120 per pitch for the whole event (5 nights) – Maximum 4x people per pitch. If 4 people stay 5 nights, that just £5 per person per night! We can only accept bookings for the full £120 fee, but you are welcome to come and go at your leisure within the 5 night period – we do not offer a “per night” price.

Reviews of our campsite
We had a fabulous time at the balloon festival made all the better by the fantastic facilities the Pillow Campsite had to offer. I felt safe as a single mum because there were obviously staff on site. I loved the club tent, a real treat. It was always nice to catch up with other campers over a brew whilst waiting for electronics to charge.
The loos and showers we’re good and I liked that the were extra loos dotted round the site. The only improvement I could think of was the entrance on the golf club side needs a couple of light markers so you can find your way back after dusk. Maybe also a shuttle system (chargeable) would be a bonus as it’s a trek when you want to pop in out of the fiesta rather than spend all day.
Will you be offering camping next year, if so I’d like to book.
