Location: Great Tew Estate, Oxfordshire
Cornbury Music Festival has been a Festival Kidz favourite for many years. Its welcoming, safe and friendly atmosphere make it a hit among families. People come back year after year and say it is the highlight of their summer.
Known affectionately as ‘Poshstock’, this is definitely a festival for people who like their festivals to be nice.
It’s hyper middle-class with VIP opportunities galore, and picnic blankets and camping chairs aplenty. But everyone is welcome and it never feels too elitist.
Food is top-notch and while there are luxury items available, general festival fare is reasonably priced.
Kids’ activities are well thought out and plentiful, and there is a fab teen tent, The Mayflower, for older children.
It’s a great festival to let tweens and teens have their first experience of roaming a festival site by themselves. It’s large enough for them to feel independent, while small and safe enough to be comforting for parents. Kids this age will also enjoy the fairground rides and range of stalls on offer selling festival gear.
Posh loos, When Nature Calls, are available at an extra cost, but general toilet facilities are always clean and well stocked throughout the grounds.
The site is easy to get around and flat.
Family camping is very spacious and quiet, with plentiful toilets and showers and a beautiful view.
Music leans towards country and pop, and you will always find some real musical legends drawing the crowds.
**2017 was due to be the last year for Cornbury, but due to overwhelming demand, it is back for 2018!**
