Activities at Camp Bestival - AD Gifted

Last year we declared Camp Bestival 2019 our favourite so far! I think it was a combination of wonderful weather, a great pitch in Camping Plus, fab acts and M enjoying lots of Activities.

Camp Bestival activities

We say it every year, but there really is something for everyone at Camp Bestival. Ever since we first started taking M to Camp Bestival, we’ve been able to find something new to do.

There are so many free activities available that you could keep your whole family busy without spending a penny. But there are also activities with a cost attached, depending on materials needed for the activity. Over the years M has crafted a sword, a wand, a dream catcher, bounced on the World’s Biggest Bouncy Castle, learned circus skills, made a jump rocket and many many more activities.

The musical line up is always fantastic, but there are also activities for the grown ups that offer a different experience. Yoga, stand up comedy, poetry, informative talks and dance classes, are just some of the activities you can discover as you wander the site.

Most of the activities are only discovered by exploring the site. Some require you to sign up for a place and some just let you turn up to join in. From our experience the kid’s activities get signed up really quickly. If you are going with family and friends it might be worth dividing and conquering to get on the activity you see a queue for. But don’t worry, like I said, there is plenty of activities, so don’t feel like you are missing out if you don’t manage to get a space on one of the activities.

The great thing about Camp Bestival is that each area of the festival gives off a different vibe. So you can find yourself raving hard with Big Fish Little Fish or chilling in the shade, whilst your kids create mud pies in Lizzie’s Way in the Dingly Dell. Each day is different and it’s advisable to just go with the flow.

If you want a taste of what Camp Bestival has to offer, they have joined forces with the UK’s coolest amusement park, Dreamland Margate. In April, Camp Bestival will be taking their vibe from the much-loved family festival, to Dreamland with a full park takeover of fun and magic for all the family to enjoy over the school holidays.

There will be live music, rides and more for all the family. Dreamland Margate reopens on Saturday 4th April and is open every day until 20th April, and it’s free to enter! Guests can pay per ride or buy discounted ride wristbands in advance online to save 25%. Members ride for free.

Ad Gifted – Silentnight Airmax Dog bed

Ad Gifted - Silentnight Airmax Dog bed

We were gifted this item for the purpose of review.

Our furry little pup is very spoiled when it comes to Christmas. Family get him gifts, we fill a stocking for him and we love to get him toys and things that will keep him comfy. The fab Silentnight Airmax dog bed (from £44.99), which you can purchase from Argos, is a great gift for him to discover under the Christmas tree.

As he is a Cockapoo, his sense of smell is AMAZING and he can sniff out a cuddly place to lay his head from 50 yards. So we decided to let him have just the one gift a little early. As soon as it was out of the packaging he was rolling around in it and snuggling down for a nap. He is the kind of dog that loves his bed, yet can be known to destroy the in seconds. Thankfully the Silentnight Airmax dog ped has withstood his chewing and doesn’t show any sign of being nibbled.

The outer fabric is very durable and the inside is covered in soft cosy fleece lining. The cushion inside the bed is reversible and has a great feature, which is a mesh fabric wall which allows air to travel through the cushion to prevent overheating. It is also machine washable, which is perfect for a dog like ours that seems to get muddy in seconds.

Silentnight also make two other fab dog bed designs, The Silentnight Orthopedic Pet Bed which has a contoured foam layer, which is designed to reduce pressure points and sooth aches and pains for a relaxing and comfortable sleep. As well as The Silentnight Ultrabounce Pet Bed, which is designed with durability and comfort in mind.

We’ve found that Beau is a much happier dog when sleeping in a comfy bed. Since he has been using The Silentnight Airmax he has certainly been content.
