Camp Bestival 2015 in Photos

So Camp Bestival was pretty epic and I took a lot of photos A LOT! I shared many on Instagram and various places on the internet, but keeping with the tradition we started last year, I wanted to share a photos post. So enjoy, if this is the first post of ours you are reading, I think it sums up our time at Camp Bestival very well. Make sure you go check out Sian and Fi, the lovely ladies in our photos and owners of the other small  and not so small people…continue reading →
Camp Bestival – Food 2015

Camp Bestival – Food 2015

Last year the food at Camp Bestival was one of the most pleasant surprises ever. We'd always had a precoceived idea of what food at a festival would be like and as it turned out, we needn't have worried at all. We share what we ate at Camp Bestival last year, so we thought we'd share what we ate this year too. We were slightly more organised this year and planned ahead to reduce money spent on food. Prices are pretty standard across all food stalls, but this soon adds up. We took…continue reading →
Coping with OCD at Camp Bestival

Coping with OCD at Camp Bestival

Last year I visited my first ever festival and managed to cope with my OCD quite well. I only had a few anxiety issues and they were largely related to things falling on the floor or touching items I didn't think were clean. We were lucky to camp somewhere near relatively clean flushing toilets with water and soap, which meant I didn't touch a chemical or compost toilet the whole time. But this year was very different. This year we camped in regular camping, several hundred yards away from some chemical toilets with…continue reading →
Our top ten at Camp Bestival

Our top ten at Camp Bestival

If you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, you will know that we've been at Camp Bestival this weekend. It's been a fantastic weekend full of memorable moments and new experiences, so we thought we'd write a top ten whilst our memories are fresh. We will be spamming you with posts about Camp Bestival overthe next few days (weeks), so please do bear with us, but it really is such an awesome event that one post does not do it justice. So prompted by Fi from Child Care Is Fun's husband and…continue reading →
Family packing list for Camp Bestival

Family packing list for Camp Bestival

This will be our second year as official Camp Bestival Bloggers. We are really privileged that we get to attend such a fantastic family event, so we take our roles seriously. We make sure we are fully prepared for all eventualities and most importantly pack to have fun. Last year was our first time attending a festival. We packed in preparation for a camping trip, but found we left out items you might want when packing for Camp Bestival and had a few items we didn't use. So we thought we would share…continue reading →
Camp Bestival going wild in 2015

Camp Bestival going wild in 2015

If you're a regular reader of our blog, then you'll know that this year we attended Camp Bestival for the first time and fell in love. It was our first ever festival and did not disapoint. This year's theme was The Circus and lead to many fun encounters. With our sights set on celebrating our little man's 3rd birthday at Camp Bestival next year, we were eager to discover this year's theme. Again, Camp Bestival did not disappoint! Announcing their theme with a beautiful video shot in possibly one of my favourite settings…continue reading →
Our must have items for Camp Bestival

Our must have items for Camp Bestival

Now the title says these are our must have items for Camp Bestival and they are exactly that. Items we feel we couldn't go without, but you may disagree, you may pack other items and that is great. Let us know in the comments what your must have items are, we would be happy to hear what you take. It's common sense that you would take the vitals, like a tent and sleeping bags etc, so we feel there is no need to mention them. This list is the little extras that make…continue reading →

All views an opinions are our own.continue reading →
Activities for your kids – Camp Bestival

Activities for your kids – Camp Bestival

The great thing about Camp Bestival is that it is definitely a family festival. There is something to do, no matter how old you are. We were a little concerned M would be a bit young for a lot of activities, but we needn't have worried as there was plenty to keep him occupied. We were really lucky to be camping near some fab people with children of various ages, which helped with entertainment back at the campsite. We highly recommend either camping with friends, or making friends with your neighbours as this…continue reading →
Camp Bestival – Food 2014

Camp Bestival – Food 2014

When we were invited to become Official Camp Bestival Bloggers, my first point of research was the on site food. M is a very fussy eater and I am a vegetarian with OCD about certain foods. I soon learned we had nothing to worry about, Camp Bestival wasn't going to be full of the usual festival burger vans and donuts. Camp Bestival had a new feature this year, which was called the Feast Collective. The Feast Collective brought together independent chefs, street vendors, and creative food makers to inspire every type of tastebud.…continue reading →
