Having studied the pastoral during my last year of A Levels, I have a pretty clear idea of what fits the description of an idyll; or even an Arcadian landscape. However, it wasn’t until I was pulling into the rolling sun blushed Welsh hills, with the blue ocean alongside me that I could say I’d ever properly experienced it. No, I wasn’t about to hang out with Tess of the D’Ubervilles- but instead I was en route to Festival Number 6, situated in Portmeirion, in North Wales.

After being invited by the lovely girls at Cath Kidston after Carrie and Lucy sadly couldn’t come, I jumped at the chance and began making lists of what to take, and charging my camera battery. After hopping on several trains I arrived in Bangor early Saturday afternoon, and after a (very windy) car journey arrived at the cottage we were staying at. Once we had unpacked we set off to the festival, and were greeted by many delicious food stalls, a fantastic line up- and the most surreal, Disney-like village I have ever seen.


After speedily devouring a lunch from Harvey Nics (!) we browsed some of the gorgeous independent shops in the main village, and spent an arguably long time browsing curd and chutneys (chut-er-ney!) before bounding back to the main festival arena for some Cathy K browsing (and cheeky buying) and preparing ourselves for the burgers and music the rest of the evening held…


P.S This post has been split into two due to an excessive amount of photos- stay tuned tomorrow for more rural fun and some live photos I’m pretty darn proud of!
