The Dingly Dell is without a doubt our favourtie bit of Camp Bestival. Packed with ways for kids to enjoy the outdoors and encouraging creativity, it’s a winner. Visit in the day times and see Lizzie’s Way, Mud Mural Wall, National Trust’s 50 Things Meadow, story telling, butterfly conservation and at night walk around the lit up woodland. There’s also a park open all day and night (adult supervision required).

It’s the perfect escape from the hustle of bustle of the festival and gives much needed shade on hot weekends! My top tip would be to visit when Mr Tumble or one of the main day time acts are on – it’s really quiet then.

Here’s a look through the DIngle Dell in photos, from Camp Bestival 2015…

National Trust – 50 Things Meadow

This year the National Trust added some building activities to their field, it was great to see so many parents and  children working together and girls and boys handling saws and hammers.

  1. I’m so gutted we didn’t venture into here – I knew it was going to be gorgeous, just from a photography point of view, and already had in my head the different shots I was going to be able to take. But sickness fell down on me and we left on Sunday – when we had planned to go into Dingly Dell then… beautiful photos Annie, they’ve captured the very essence of what I imagined the space to be like! x

  2. I love the Dingly Dell, especially at night, but was gutted when I popped in with E just after 5 and Lizzies Way was closed 🙁 The saws and hammering were fantastic weren’t they?! I wish I had come up with this in my twenties! Lovely photos again 🙂

  3. glad you got to see the colour makes people happy tent, they are just down the road from us and it’s where ronnie had his 6th party last year. such lovely lovely people. dingly dell is one of our favourite spots too. must go at night time next year. looks magical x

  4. I love the Dingly Dell, it inspires the imagination of everyone, any age. Watching our little man handle a saw and drill was ace, he was so chuffed with what he made.
