"Quality family festival in Sussex…"
Arriving was more like pulling in to a village fete than some of the big festivals we've been to. No grumpy security, massive queues or unnecessary strip searches of children and buggies.
The kids were given a glass of elderflower cordial and goody bag and we had an elderflower champagne cocktail. Don’t mind if I do!
Campsite is a leisurely stroll from the car park and all really safe so kids ran free.
The entire site was completely manageable with half of it in the woods (great for shade as it was a scorcher) and half of it in the open field. The woods were by far my favorite lots of cute little sound systems and bars plus lovely woodland spa treatments (a little expensive but that seems to be the case at all festivals).
There was loads of free stuff for the kids to do including crafts and a great skate ramp.
We had such a great time. Camping with friends, meeting new people and giving the kids the freedom they crave.
On Sunday the festival excelled itself by asking campers to get in groups of 10 and come to the main stage. We collected a delicious hamper filled with local produce for us to share (fabulous when your down to the last tin of beans!). Bread, cheeses, pâté, cake and heaps of other goodies to enjoy in the sunshine. Doesn’t get much better than that.
We were sad to say goodbye to all our fellow campsite friend old and new, but packed up and were home in time for tea…
How very civilized!
Locate at Bentley Estate near Lewes, Elderflower Fields Festival is essentially a relaxed family camping weekend with the added bonus of being slap bang in the middle of a festival in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
