To standardize the booking procedures
for both the spring and autumn events, the organisers of
both events and Kelling Heath management have got together
agreed the following procedure:
For either event you can only book by
telephone up to a year in advance after the current
event. For example the next spring star party is from
Wednesday 19th April to Wednesday 26th
April 2017, you will only be able to book by telephone for
the spring 2017 star party from Monday 11th April
2016 (Main event day being Sat 9th). However you
can book for the next event in person at reception when you
have arrived and checked in for the current event but only
for your own pitch not others. This is to give a preference
to those that are loyal to the event whom frequently stay
for an extended period and then find their favoured pitch
has been booked up by someone by phone in advance just for
There is no easy way and no method
will suit everyone but we think the above is fairest all
All booking is done with the campsite (contact details at bottom of page) We get a reduced £14 rate (Extra Large pitches £15)
from Wednesday 19th April to Wednesday 26th April. When you contact kelling quote 'spring star party' to get the reduced rate. Fields available are red and yellow and pitch numbers are shown on the maps below.
Some people stay a few nights before or after the weekend to be sure of some clear skies. Although the toilet block lights will only be off for the main dates.
Pitches are booked on a first come first served basis and the staff will not get involved with describing pitches (Maps are below for this purpose)
Kelling staff will not be able to describe the program/itinary or anything else in connection with the star party. An information pack will be given on the day of arrival but all details are available on this website or for further information go to the contact page.
Family groups may wish to book a lodge or mobile home. You may also prefer to go on yellow field, as the red is more suited for observing, with the astronomers being up to the early hours.
