The luxury festival experience with Oliver’s Travels
After a long, grey winter and chilly spring, many of us will be looking forward to the summer sun and the world-renowned music festivals that come along with it. However, it must be admitted that few will relish the prospect of cold tents or queuing for Portaloos.
If you want to combine the festival circuit experience with all the comforts of home, Oliver’s Travels offers the perfect solution: luxurious large mansions for hire that offer plenty of space for groups of friends. Here are a few recommendations…
The Great Escape –
This May music festival paves the way for the rest of the summer’s big events. The Great Escape always has its finger on the new music pulse, and showcases fresh bands in venues across Brighton. Between the gigs, swap the seaside for the heated indoor swimming pool of pretty Winter Manor in the nearby Surrey Hills, with room for up to 12 guests.
Glastonbury Festival – Perhaps the most famous of the British music festivals, Glastonbury has been going since 1970 and still retains a slight hippy atmosphere that is lapped up by thousands every June. You’ll find an eclectic mix of world-famous performers of all genres, playing on mammoth stages on a quaint, Somerset farm. Head back to the elegant Polden Hills House at the end of each day, a short drive away. Up to 15 festival-goers can relax in style in this English country home.
Isle of Wight Festival –
Massive international names like Bon Jovi, Blondie and The Killers join home-grown British sensations at the Isle of Wight Festival every year. Pamper yourself with rock star treatment and rent some super-exclusive festival accommodation – the incredible Napoleonic Fortress, for example, is completely surrounded by water, with room for up to 18 guests, several games rooms and even a wine tasting room.
Reading and Leeds Festivals – Northern and southern siblings, Reading and Leeds offer the same line-up of mainly rock, indie, punk and metal on the same August bank holiday weekend. Get a big bunch of friends together (up to 30 guests) to stay at the splendid Carlton Manor House in the Yorkshire countryside while you live it up at Leeds Festival – the property comes with 250 acres of parkland to explore, including a vast lake.Neate & Davidcjones
