Summer dreaming – Starry Skies Festival…

Summer is well and truly here!  With a gorgeous weekend on the horizon, I can’t help but dream of what is store when the schools break up for Summer.  I love it, I love having my two boys around for 6 weeks, holidays, festivals, swimming in the Ocean, trips to Museum, picnics in the park….

We are fortunate to be going to a few festivals over the Summer. The first being Starry Skies.  We are looking forward to finishing school and diving head first into the festival season…. what better way to start than this:

Dubbed as ‘a family camping holiday’ but with extras.  Extras which are mightily impressive.  Not your usual festival with fair ground rides, loud music and burger stalls, no – Starry Skies aims to be sustainable, environmentally friendly and above all for families to enjoy time together in a wonderful location.

Looking at the website there is plenty to do….

For the kids:

Join the Circus – Rufus is getting into juggling at the moment, using rolled up balls of socks. So this one is for him.

Big Bugs – What child doesn’t like bugs?! 

Forest School – Children take part in many activities including: flora, fauna and fungi identification, woodland awareness and the value of woodlands, listening to bird song, hide and seek, making ‘mud heads’ and will be taught to use different tools safely. There will also be fire lighting, orienteering and cooking over an open fire to name but a few!

Gaze at the Stars – They’ll be some naked eye star-gazing going on each night (subject to the weather!) and a telescope to help you peer into other worlds, so wrap up warm, grab a flask of something hot and bring those shiny peepers along for some late night ventures into the unknown…



For Dads….

Mountain Biking – Dan’s first love!

Canoeing – Take to the water and see the beauty of the Brecons from a riverside perspective. Groups and individuals can have the chance to explore the Wye from their own canoe, with the help and support of Contour Outdoor

Henry’s Beard Cafe – Food!  Delicious wholesome food.


For the Mums…

Yurts – sleeping on a bed, a warm yurt after a day of adventuring.

‘Me Time’ Lounge – relaxation, massage and chill – what more would you want!

Yoga Workshop – a chance to stretch in a beautiful location

And so much more!  Family sports day, den building, music and art workshops, camp fires…..

Looking good eh?  More information over on Starry Skies website.  Tickets are very limited.
