On Saturday 5th July the Tour de France, the world’s greatest cycle race, will be passing the main entrance of Lightwater Valley Theme Park. We are very excited to announce that from Thursday 3rd July until Wednesday 9th July we will be hosting our very own Big Yellow Campsite. The theme park is perfectly placed to offer you an amazing view of the race and get you up close to the action.
Please note that as the Tour de France will be passing the main entrance to our site on Saturday 5th July, road closures will be in place. We will therefore not be admitting visitors to the campsite on the Saturday 5th July. All visitors must be onsite by Friday 4th July.
You will be issued with a wristband that will allow you free entry into the theme park on any day during your stay, except Saturday 5th July, when the theme park will be closed.
Lightwater Valley will provide toilets and showers for your convenience but we recommend that you bring your own toilet roll.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
