Baby-friendly UK festivals?

That's it really!
My husband and I enjoy going to music festivals (although we've given up the camping element in favour of B&Bs) and I wondered if any of you have any recommendations for UK festivals - large or small - that are baby-friendly. DS will be 1 when the festival season starts.

Thanks!

Never been to any myself, but friends have recommended:

Secret Garden Party

Shambala

Both sets of friends camped with 12 month olds and had a good time.

Lovely festival, been the last 3 years with DS (so at 1, 2 and 3yo).

Lost of families, great atmosphere - really friendly, kids area, fancy dress on the Saturday, and the only festival I know of with a swimming pool onsite! (It's held on the grounds of a very posh house), and it has decent toilets and showers.

And De La Soul are playing this year smile

Preggers, I was totally sold on Camp Bestival - until I realised we're at a wedding hmm So that will be next year's holiday! DH was very excited that Horrible Histories was doing a live show (he used to watch it every morning with DS)...

I'll check out this stately home thing though - sounds interesting!
