There aren’t many festivals on this year but these family-friendly sites have a party atmosphere, fun activities, great food and low-key gigs
Music is a big deal at Nesta, a yurt site created by a duo who organise the Shindig festival. Firepit serenades, lounge bar beats and acoustic sessions by bands who usually play the summer festivals (and at the Bell Inn, one of Bath’s best-loved music venues) bring the party here. This summer’s acts include Baka Beyond, a fusion of African rhythms and Celtic tunes. Wood-fired hot tubs, yoga sessions and massage therapists, plus sustainably sourced food and drinks in the bistro and cocktail bar (open to locals) supply the daytime festival vibes, and at weekends kids can join forest school sessions. The site is near Frome, in the grounds of Critchill Manor.
