Accommodation at Aspire
Aspire can accommodate a reasonably sized group with relative privacy. Most rooms accommodate three people with a bunk bed plus an additional single bed, and are en suite.
For those staying in a bunk, bedding is provided. If you’re staying in crash space, you need to bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat. Towels are not provided.
Crash space is available in a dry, heated portacabin, with a maximum of 10 places. You will need to bring your own camping bed or sleeping mat, and all the bedding.
You may also camp mundanely or in a period manner, as you wish. There is no limit to this.
Site opens at 18:00 on Friday and closes at 18:00 on Sunday - we are planning a strong schedule into Sunday afternoon, so we encourage attendees to stay for the full day. Alcohol is allowed; please keep non-period containers covered.
Clara House Spa is situated across the courtyard, and provides massages, treatments and sauna facilities at extra cost. You can book these separately at Clara House Spa.
Other accommodation options
As well as the comfortable rooms on site, there are a number of Bed and Breakfasts nearby or within short driving distance of Clara.
