One of the biggest benefits of staying in an off-site glamping or camping site is that you don’t have to lug all of your gear from the car/coach aaalllll the way across the festival to your campsite!

You won’t have to use the standard Glastonbury Festival carparks because all of the off-site accommodation offer car parking space (for an additional fee) that’s extremely close to where you’ll be staying.
Hospitality Access (But Not all Accommodation Offers this)
Many off-site accommodation providers can offer hospitality tickets for an additional price. Their respective websites should have this information. Hospitality access in Glastonbury Festival allows you access to ‘that bit between The Pyramid Stage and The Other Stage’ and many other shortcuts throughout the festival.
