Our local village music festival Altitude returns to the Blackborough Beacon on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th July 2023. We unexpectedly have two cottages available again so we've put together a special package for you to be able to enjoy the festival for free while staying in our holiday accommodation.
Book a stay of between 3 and 7 nights' duration from Friday 28th July and receive free Friday and Saturday day tickets to the festival for those staying in the accommodation. Not only that but the stays themselves have also been discounted.
Cider Cottage sleeps up to 6 and is now £1295 for a week long stay (was £1395) or £975 for three nights from Friday 28th July, including free Altitude tickets worth up to £360 (Ts&Cs apply see below).
Apple Cottage sleeps to 3 and is now £770 for a week long stay (was £845) or £570 for three nights from Friday 28th July, including free Altitude tickets worth up to £180 (Ts&Cs apply see below).
In addition to the festival you can enjoy our heated indoor pool, games room and relaxing conservatory overlooking the duck pond during your stay along with everything else Devon has to offer.
Altitude is a community festival with fantastic music held in a field in Blackborough on the edge of the Blackdown Hills. Set up by three friends seven years ago, this small but perfectly formed festival also has fabulous food stalls, a huge bar, two stages and a disco tent, loads of kids entertainment and more. This year's Saturday dress up theme is beach party.
There is even a scratch choir popping up which will rehearse on Friday afternoon and again Saturday morning before performing on Saturday lunchtime in front of a live audience. We absolutely love Altitude to bits and would love to share it with our cottage guests. All profits from Altitude go to the local community and charities such as Devon Air Ambulance.
