We have been going to festivals with our kids for a few years now. Over those years we have learnt a lot. Believe it or not people, it is very doable, we've met people with newborns, literally a few weeks old. Is it stressful? I'm not gonna lie, it can be - but when is...

Yesterday, whilst walking my youngest two home from school, my son said: "I am very lucky, I have been camping loads of times, some people in my class have never been."

Having wild camped a couple of times we are no strangers to building a campfire. We were also taught some new fire lighting skills whilst we were at Camp Wilderness last year by the Bushcraft Company.

There is something that pulls us back to this festival year after year. You see it is not your average festival - it is a truly magical place, transporting you back to times gone by. England's Medieval Festival takes place at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex eve...

Last year we were lucky enough to experience four festivals - camping for a long weekend at two of them. It was a great experience and from it we now have a better idea of what to take.

What You should take

Tickets: Obviously. Do not forget these!

Around a year ago I discovered a beautiful bohemian brand on social media - I had just started doing a bit of VA work for a glamping agency when Sleeping Beauties caught my eye. I had fallen for the unique designs of Leah's sleeping bags - they were different to anyth...
