A world of words and wonder at Port Eliot Festival

Just as the big yellow thing in the sky came out, we set off to Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall. It's far from your run-of-the-mill festival - Port Eliot is a three day event that celebrates literature primarily, and acts as a platform for writers, speakers, and all manner of artists to showcase their work. Of course, there is music, and cabaret, too. 

We spent two nights camping in the lush green grounds - not too far from the stately home that was open to the public and hosted an exhibition of fashion designer Mary Katrantzou's dresses, one of which was inspired by the festival itself. 

Over the course of three days we strolled the estate, taking in the glorious views and exploring every inch we could, before taking a moment to watch the world go by as the sun welcomely shone on us. Here's a peek at what we got up to.
