Brill stay! So well thought out for guests comfort and enjoyment. We stayed in Fox's Den and had family staying in 2 other canvas cottages. They are all huge with a massive bathroom, wood burning stove, comfy beds and outside decks. Our grandkids loved the freedom, but we could still see and hear them for their safety. Each place is...

After staying in Bluebells last year we couldn't resist a return trip and were not disappointed. The same care and consideration I commented on last time was evident in the decor, the lighting, the fresh flowers and welcome cake and card. The beautiful wood-fired hot tub was up to temperature and the stove was all set up ready to light....

Delighted to host your stay again, it’s always a pleasure to see you both on the farm. September is a lovely month and Bluebells tucked away on its own is just delightful, I’m sure I will have bought some more things by your return visit next year! Look forward to welcoming you back.

We've just arrived home from our second trip to The Dandelion Hideaway, and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last! The first time we stayed as a couple (in Bluebells) and this time, with our 19 month old son (in Hare's Form). The canvas cottages are amazing: private and quiet, beautifully furnished with quirky and quality items, they are...

Emily so lovely to host your stay again – it was delightful to see you all enjoying the farm together.

We just can't rave about Dandelion Hideway enough - we got back yesterday after a blissful Bank Holiday weekend staying in Badgers Sett.

This place as everyone before me has said, is AMAZING. I have previously glamped in a luxury canvas cottage, this stood well above that, as the detail and extra thought put in by Sharon is clearly evident. The quality of the furniture, crockery and facilities within the canvas cottage means you are cosy and will be very happy during your...

So pleased that you appreciated the difference with our accommodation, we do try exceptionally hard and my standards are super high – I aim for 5* with all the furnishings and fittings.

I can only add to what others have said. I had not been camping since i was a child so the thought of glamping seemed like a nice introduction back into the camping world.
