First year of Sticklinch this year so thought it'd be worth getting people's opinins. For context, I was in a 2 man bellpad by myself.
The bellpad itself was nice and roomy, was able to fit in a double airbed (although it was a squeeze with the pole coming down the middle!) and all my belongings with space to spare. Only downside of the tent itself was that it could do with something to keep the heat out if it's a scorcher; lay down on my airbed for 20 minutes on the Wednesday and puddles of sweat were forming.
The site itself could do with some improvements in terms of facilities. Not sure how it compares with Worthy View, but they could have easily done with another food trader or two as lines were pretty long each morning; waited around 45 mins for a coffee on the Sunday. Also more benches outside the traders would have been a good shout; they definitely had the space for it! The toilets were clean and well kept, again usually a long line if you went at peak morning time but tended to move quickly; same could be said of the showers (although opted for a wet wipe wash from Saturday onwards).
While it's pretty out of the way, I found it was a nice walk to the stages. You're on the railway track in about 10-15 minutes or so and I can imagine Worthy View is a more punishing walk! One thing I'd love to see is a shuttle bus from Gate A to the Sticklinch gate for us getting the coach to the festival; it was an absolutely brutal walk on the first day.
Overall, I was pretty happy with Sticklinch, especially considering it was its first year. Would definitely consider staying there again (tickets pending!), especially if they offer a shuttle bus to the gate next year.
