Idyllic festival-themed campsite opens near Somerset town

Boasting luxury yurts, fire pits and wood-fired hot tubs, the site has live music events lined up over the summer A stunning pop-up campsite has opened near Frome – but you’ll have to be quick if you want to visit this summer as spaces are filling up fast. The vast majority of festivals are sadly cancelled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, but Nesta resembles something close to your favourite knees-up with a programme of live music lined up on site.

Situated in Critchill Manor on the outskirts of the Somerset town, Nesta is home to fire pits, wood-fired hot tubs, an on-site bar and the Big Red Bus food truck, which is usually found serving revellers at Shambala Festival in Northamptonshire. Guests can unwind by taking part in yoga sessions or booking in a massage as kids are occupied with woodland activities, arts and craft sessions and interactive entertainment. The team behind Nesta would normally be organising festivals, but with the pandemic cancelling their events, they’re instead welcoming small groups of friends, couples and families to their idyllic campsite.

There are five different types of yurt to choose from starting from GBP22 per person per night, as well as a vintage horsebox that sleeps four. Nesta opened on June 25 and will be open until August 31. Take a look through the pictures below to get a flavour of the site.
