Camp Bestival – Our Packing List

The countdown has finally ended, tomorrow we are off to our first ever Camp Bestival… wooooo. Can’t wait to enjoy a lovely break away listening to some great artists, eating some delicious food and most of all spending some time together as a family.

Being a camping newbie I’ve been making lists and crossing things off in hope of being a bit more organised and praying that i don’t forget anything. Leaving the house with 2 toddlers in tow can be pretty daunting. I though it would be a great idea to share our camping list in hope of maybe helping others out in the future.
