Been there for SW4 festival and the size of the place together with the relaxed surroundings created a very positive experience even if lived together with other 20.000 people.

Acres of beautiful park, lakes and amazing countryside ... Lovely place just to 'chillax' especially when the sun is shining. Great to take a picnic and soak up the surroundings
