What is Cream O’ The Croft?

Cream o’ the Croft is an unbelievably fun, family-friendly festival for anyone who loves camping, music, the great outdoors and mountain biking.  Throw in an award-winning venue, a ton of live music, some street performers, gourmet food and drink providers and activities ranging from a pedal-powered cinema to a giant water slide and you can imagine just how good this weekend is.

In a nutshell, Cream o’ the Croft is a top mountain bike Enduro, a food and drink festival, a beer festival and a family-friendly music festival all rolled into one fantastic weekend.  Surely it can't really be as good as it sounds? 

No, it's much better than that!
