Made In Chelsea star Digby Edley is best known for his time on the E4 reality show, but he also has an interesting connection to the Glastonbury Festival

When you think of camping in Glastonbury, you picture tiny pop-up tents, sleeping bags and not much else.
However, there are scattered campsites that offer a little more luxury, one of which is owned by Made In Chelsea star Digby Edgley’s family.
Winding Lake offers guests the option of staying in luxury RVs, bell tents, and snooze boxes—compact squares with solid sidewalls.
Those who stay have access to hot showers, electricity and clean toilets – which are not available if you slum the festival site.
The property’s extensive grounds accommodate almost 1,000 pitches where you can stay in the accommodation provided or rent a pitch and bring your own RV.

Each accommodation also has a parking space next door, so you can pack as much as you like.
The reception staff will greet you with your wristbands and take you to your place of stay in elegant golden buggies, similar to a 5-star resort.
If you’re easily star-struck, this place isn’t for you, as you’ll mingle with reality stars and musicians – some of Glasto’s acts use the grounds to land their helicopters before taking to the stage.
Digby and his MIC pal Julius Cowdrey also worked shifts behind the quaint bar.
However, Digby seems to be doing more than pouring pints, as he explained to us that it takes his family and the Winding Lake staff about two months to “set up,” but they use the whole year to “prep.” .
The Pyramid Stage is about a 15 minute walk but you also have the option to hop on a shuttle bus that runs and departs every 10 minutes from 10am to 4am. You may only be on the bus for 10 minutes, but some come stocked with energy drinks, water and wet wipes that you can purchase.
Eating and drinking is also plentiful at Winding Lake. Breakfast is served from 8.30am and a separate coffee tent if you don’t feel like eating yet – tea is £2.80, coffee around £3.
Bacon buns can be jazzed up by adding sausage and mushrooms with a side of hash browns, available from £6 a bap.
You can grab a bite from 5pm until late, with a different menu item available depending on the day, from burgers and “fancy dogs” to pizza and grilled cheese.
Not only food and beverages are offered on the premises, as a Powder Puff Girls hair and beauty salon has a tent for hairstyling, makeup and more.
If your hangover has got the better of you and a Barrocca just isn’t enough, Effect Doctors also have IV drops, ranging from £40 to £199.
If you’re looking to book a stay at Winding Lake you’ll need to be quick as one guest told us he had to book his stay when he snagged his Glasto ticket!
