Wow, what can we say. Just returned from our first Glamping experience here and we were delighted with the whole experience. The tents are luxurious, the farm was a delight for our children (5, 2 year and 9 months old) and the hosts were very welcoming. I could not recommend this enough for anyone wanting a farm experience, get off...

We have just had the most AMAZING weekend away. Do not delay booking as I can assure you it will be a weekend you'll never forget, our 4 year old certainly won't. From the moment we arrived the excitement started. Farmer John greeted us and we were quickly shown around and then our luggage and us were whisked off to...

We made our second visit to dandelion hideaway over easter. We had another great time. The canvas cottage was amazing and the welcome from Sharon and John was fantastic. The kids had an amazing time playing in the fields and meeting the animals, and we got to relax for a while. It was great. I'm already looking forward to our...

I can't recommend this place highly enough, the site was so friendly and safe our kids went completely free range within a couple of hours. We loved collecting our eggs in the morning, seeing the baby goats, the unbelievably comfy bed and cooking on the fire. John and Sharon are perfect hosts and provided a really interesting insight into farming...

Our third visit to the beautiful Dandelion Hideaway and it was just fantastic. Our children love the farm activities - grooming ponies, milking goats, collecting eggs, visiting the baby goats and a special Easter egg hunt in the farmhouse garden! The canvas cottages are beautifully decorated and so comfortable, the children love sleeping in the cupboard bed! Farmer John and...

We visited for a short break with the kids after Easter, and couldn't have had a more perfect time. The accommodation (we were in Badgers Nest) was fantastic, beds were super comfortable and the bathroom great too. It really lived up to the "glamping" promise - the best of both worlds. The farm was a great environment for us and...

We visited The Dandelion Hideway in August, and from the moment we entered the site it was pure magic. There were all sorts of wonderful animals, and lovely tents. There's just 6 of them, and each have a small porch, an outdoor seating area and a barbecue. The inside has plenty of space, and is absolutely beautiful. The farmer was...

Just thinking about booking again for the fourth year running when I remembered I told Farmer John I would write a review upon my return. This is a trip like no other, but it's as much about what's missing, (TV, electricity, WiFi) as it is what replaces it, (monopoly, laughing, conversations). My sister, brother-in-law, our three teenagers and two dogs...
