If you'd gone down to the woods last weekend you'd have been sure of a big surprise… In the wilds of west Oxfordshire, Lady Rotherwick’s wooded Wonderland was where the wild things were.

Returning for its seventh annual sold-out session, Wilderness was once again the place to see and been seen this summer season – with it’s hearty blend of hot tubs, homemade hummus and hales bales…plus just a nip of naughtiness!

Our county’s not short of excuses to party, but this kaleidoscopic extravaganza maintains its position at the top of the heap and every August, what feels like the whole of SW3 decamps to the Cotswold countryside for a dirty weekend with a difference. Trying to keep up with the 30,000 strong 72-hour Prosecco people has left me with a slightly sore head that’s still struggling to recall exactly what happened.

The gourmand’s favourite boutique bash is a bouillabaisse of must-see music, high arts, daring drama, pant-wetting comedy and food, glorious food. In fact, with so much temptation on offer it’s hard to know where to begin…or stop. Deliciously Ella served up avocado toast for breakfast, Hackney-based kitchen Patty & Bun served up their Ari Gold bespoke burger for luncheon and I made sure to leave just enough room for a fabulous feast from some of the world’s top chefs – including Cafe Murano’s Angela Hartnett and Nuno Mendes from uber-trendy Chiltern Firehouse.

And, the sunny days were whiled away enjoying talks from leading literary lights, pop-up performances of Shakespeare and trying my hand at hip-hop hot yoga. As the nights drew in, the glittery in-crowd head to The Valley to shake their tail feathers into the early hours to the sounds of Nightmares On Wax and Crazy P.

As for the live music, highlights were of course a jubilant headline set by alt-popsters Two Door Cinema Club, Mercury Music Prize nominee Michael Kiwanuka and reggae legends Toots & The Maytals. However, there’s no doubting who was the high priestess of this party. Closing Sunday’s service in her own inimitable style was the one and only Grace Jones – who had this horde of hipsters as slaves to her rhythm until the very end.

Wilderness is a celebration of the outdoors, and the ancient forests, iridescent lakes and rolling hills of Cornbury Park are the perfect backdrop to gaze at the stars and howl at the moon. A perfect three days to stimulate body, mind and soul before returning back from the rumpus to reality.
