1. We are Family Friendly! We are 'The Most Handsome Family Festival in the World'.

We are award winning and we are returning to Bakewell for our third year. 17-19 June 2016. We also have secured MORE PARKING and MORE camping for this year making it even EASIER to get in, get parked, set up camp and get into the Festival.

We are also SUPER Dog friendly! (we especially love dogs that try to roll their best in show outfits off in The Parade Ring!)

Our Homefields Camping is right next to the Festival which means you are completely contained, parked up, pitched and sorted for 3 days and yet within a short walking distance of your parked up car. We have tip top loos, including more flushing loos than Glastonbury and plenty of private hot water shower cubicles.

One of the most mentioned comment in our 2015 survey about our faculties was the quality and cleanliness of our loos! Read more HERE.
