We have just returned from our second visit of the season to The Dandelion Hideaway and can not thank Farmer John and Sharon enough. We were very much in need of rest and relaxation which we managed in abundance. We've laughed, played, chatted, rested, stroked the baby goats, milked the big goats, groomed the ponies, fetched the eggs and toasted...

What a lovely anniversary weekend we have just spent here! A weekend never usually seems long enough when you go away, you get back and feel like it flew by, but being unplugged from modern life and all its rushing and buzzing really changed our perception of time. We finally had time to catch up with ourselves and each other,...

Thank you for your delightful review, I love your phrase….” thank you for curating such beautiful accommodation”, it sounds so nice.

Get away, off grid if you want in luxury canvas cottages. Set on a lovely farm with things to do for the kids like milking goats, collecting eggs and exploring the farm. Very friendly, comfortable and all you need for a relaxing week.

We took our 2 children with their partners on a memorable weekend, staying in Hares Form canvas cottage. Our ages ranged from 22 to 58, and we were able to relive our family camping holidays from the past, but with the welcome addition of a little wine and a huge amount of comfort. The weather was mixed, mostly fine and...

This was our first time glamping and really had very little idea of what to expect. True to say though that we were blown away with the accommodation, setting and entire experience at Dandelion.

We spent last weekend at the Dandelion and although there was plenty of rain we didn't let it spoil our time there. The children had an amazing time - collecting eggs, playing with the newly born goats, helping Sharon with the horses. The tents are very well equipped and have everything you need.

Booked two tents with three children under 5. Hares Form and Foxs Den. Hares form was tucked away at the end of the field and was very private with a large deck. It was quite dark even during the day so when cooking needed lamps on. We had the fire pit there and it was protected from the wind which...
