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...

Thank you for your very kind comments, we try to make each and every holiday a magical experience, so to read your review was heart-warming for Farmer John & I. Delighted that you enjoyed our 'family of animals' and the gentle farm activities, which are always a favourite. I do hope that you will come and stay with us again,...

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...

Our second visit to the wonderful Dandelion Hideaway, just as magical as the first. We absolutely love it here, being able to switch off and relax in the beautiful surroundings.

We just got back from a half term break at the dandelion hideaway. We had an absolutely amazing time getting away from it all and decompressing from our busy lives. The kids had a great time milking goats and collecting eggs, and for me the simplicity of building the fire and relaxing made it a break to remember. We can't...

What a lovely anniversary weekend we have just spent here!
