Cloudhouses at Electric Picnic

Electric Picnic 2017.


NEW for 2017!

Early bird entry tickets… Once you have bought your weekend camping tickets for Electric Picnic 2017 why not take advantage of the new early bird entry ticket option this is new for 2017. 

Early entry tickets can be bought for £9 per person this will allow you to check in from Thursday 31st August from 4pm this is due to the traffic congestion on the Friday this year, the festival organisers have implemented this to avoid the back log of traffic :) please ask when you book via the telephone to buy these if you wish to or when you book online please pop in your notes how many you would like.

Those of you who wish not to purchase an early entry ticket won’t get access to the festival until Friday 1st September :

Please note we DO NOT SUPPLY FESTIVAL TICKETS!! WEEKEND CAMPING TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM THE FESTIVAL WEBSITE however, we do upgrade you to VIP status upon check in. Please check upgrade restrictions when you book.

When you book with Cloudhouses home of yurts and squrts you will receive an automated first initial confirmation from the Cloudhouses website. Approximately two weeks before the event you will receive a final booking confirmation from us re confirming a break down of your order, complete with arrival and useful event information. Please ensure your order is correct before you arrive.

Due to the lack of sustainability of air beds, the waste they generate and to add to the comfort of our guests we are now offering our custom made reflex foam mattresses in our squrts and 12 foot yurts for 2017 onwards.

All of our yurts, squrts and our lovely luxury yurts will return to our usual area behind Stadbally Hall for 2017. We will share this area with the other boutique/luxury camping accommodation providers. 

We will have our usually hot showers, clean toilets and food outlets in our area.

Your VIP wristbands will be given to you when you check in at our reception, these give you access to the fabulous VIP area "The Electric Garden" on the main festival site.

Please note that Squrts, luxury 14ft diameter yurts and 12ft yurts come with two vip passes included. Our 18ft diameter yurts come with 4 VIP passes, and our 20ft diameter yurts come with 5 VIP passes as standard these are included in the cost. If you require more then the pre-allocated passes per structure please add these passes to your shopping basket when you book.

No roughing it when you stay with us!! We will have our beauty parlour station again at Electric Picnic for 2017 suitably extravagant with hair dryers and straighteners for you to use, you can plug in your own grooming tools too, along with complimentary phone charging in here too for our guests use. 

Our beauty parlour/charging yurt will be open for three set times a day, during show days. Please see the blackboard on site to see the opening time so you can get full use of these facilities. 

Cloudhouses cannot accept responsibility for showers and toilets although we will report any complaints or issues to the festival when necessary. We take any comments and feedback about festival facilities very seriously and always report any issues that guests have directly to the festival management teams.​ All complaints must be made on site before the event ends.

Damages deposits:

Again for 2017 we will have our damage deposit scheme in place. 

Unfortunately due to the misuse of our stock over the seasons 2015 & 2016 which we can no longer use, we have had no choice but to put a deposit and damages scheme in place for 2016 and beyond.

When you make a booking with us we will ask for a deposit of £50 for Squrts, Cloudhouses, Bell tents and unfurnished 12ft yurts, and
£100 for any larger structures.

This will be automatically added to your shopping basket when you book with us and when you make a telephone order.

The deposit can be split over your instalment plan and is fully refundable into the bank account you paid for your structure with within 72hours of the festival ending If no damage or loss had been made.

You will find on each Festival page the itemised damages scheme, this is due to a large quantity of brand new Egyptian cotton linen and towels which are un-salvageable which cannot be used again.

If we feel that the property, linen or yurt has been damaged to a point where it is no longer usable, we will automatically retain the cost of that particular item from your deposit and email you to explain the deduction made from your deposit refund. All deductions are inclusive of VAT @ 20%

Single duvet cover £12
Single fitted sheet £7.50

Double duvet cover £16
Double fitted sheet £11

Pillow cases £4 each
