This was our first time at Camp Bestival this year and wow what a year it was. I have to admit that one of our favourite finds of the festival and one of the places we spent most of our time was the ‘Dingley Dell’
The ‘Dingley Dell’ is set in the magical, peaceful woodlands of Camp Bestival. For us it was the perfect place to take the kids to enjoy a bit of time away as a family from the noise for a while.
Upon first entering the ‘Dingley Dell’ thru the Lizzies Way entrance, we were in ore of just how beautifully decorated the walk way was, lights hanging from tree, gorgeous buntings drapsing across. It wasn’t long before we stumbled across a selection of cute little cubby dens made out of sticks and leaves. Inside was some blankets and books etc. It was the perfect place for us to sit and read to the kids for a little while .
The amount of things that the dingley dell has to offer, really doesnt stop with the wonderful reading dens. On further exploring we found even more activites for the kids to do. From making potions, to a mud kitchen and even animal holding.
One of my favourite things about ‘Dingley Dell’ was that its just as magical at night as it is in the day,if not more so. One night we decided to venture up to The Dingley Dell on the off chance it might still be open and wow what a good choice that was. I was expecting it to be shut off due to the time, however was surprised to see it all lite up in lights. It was stunning, the kids loved walking thru it in the evening and we visited in the evenings a few times whilst at Camp Bestival and each time we came out at least one of the two little ones was asleep and the other almost.
