waking up on Glastonbuy farm this morning, stuck to their own sleeping bag, inside a tent that's hotter than the sun, to the smell of Cuppa Soups and Sainsbury's basic curry noodles. The summer festival season may be in full swing, but that doesn't mean you have to give up creature comforts and first-world sanitation.

The Pavilion Gardens Relax in Regency splendour with access to a salon, walkabout acts, private toilets and a Secret Emporium.
