Getting Excited about Camp Bestival!

As soon as the weather starts warming up (this lovely weather is entirely down to me, by the way - I bought a new coat from Boden which arrived the morning the sun first appeared and has gone straight to the back of the wardrobe awaiting AW15, grrrr) I start thinking about summer festivals and, in particular, CAMP BESTIVAL.

Camp Bestival is, without any doubt whatsoever, the highlight of my family's year; we LOVE it. We have been so honoured to work as official Camp Bestival Bloggers for the last two years and we will be returning to Lulworth Castle again this July for sure.

Brimming with brilliant music, THE TASTIEST FOOD (I'm talking about YOU Chapati Man), theatre, fairground attractions, the best kids' entertainment EVER, face painting, fancy dress and rum (never forget the rum!) it is honestly the best mini holiday you could ever go on as a family. 

The musical line-up so far is incredible, and we love all the outdoorsy pursuits we can take part in (the Dingly Dell and 50 Things Field were our favourite areas last year!) but one thing I'm really looking forward to visiting this year is their new Wellness retreat and spa; The Hideaway. Dedicated to finding a little slice of inner peace in the wonderful craziness that is Camp Bestival, The Hideaway has a carefully curated programme of treatments and classes to make you emerge feeling rested and radiant. Yoga, meditation, massages and bathing under the stars in wood fired hot tubs..... I'm in!

As always, Camp Bestival has a fancy dress theme, and this years was announced by the legend that is David Bellamy. Press play on the little video below to find out more....

If you're going please do let me know! I'd love to meet up with you!



  1. I've been looking at this for the past few years but have chickened out at taking five little ones camping.
    It looks fantastic but I worried about losing someone!!
    Your post has inspired me to bite the bullet and book next year x

    1. Oh Emma you really should! It's THE BEST! Evie has been every year since she was born (she was 8 months first time round) and Daisy loves it so much. Go with another family so that there are extra eyes to watch the littlies - you will have such a blast I promise! See you in 2016!! x
