Fantastic - just book. Our second year at the Dandelion Hideaway and another completely relaxing holiday with 3 children aged 9, 7 & 5 who all want to stay for 3 weeks next year. The hot tub was a huge attraction, with the children enjoying dips before breakfast, after breakfast and at regular intervals throughout the day and finally watching...

Thank you for your lovely review; it really does make it all worth it. Guests often ask if a week is long enough, so hopefully you have answered that question! The hot tub is very popular and just another little added attraction for Bluebells canvas cottage. We keep trying! Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it’s...

This was our 3rd glamping holiday, in 3 years and by far the best. Online booking and payment were very straight forward. On arrival we were met at the gate of the farm, by Sharon, who showed us the 'honesty shop' (full of lovely local produce (pork pie to die for) and gifts), with childrens' play den, full of fantastic...

We recently spent 3 nights in the excellent Fox's Den. It was a wonderful relaxing break. We have 2 young boys (5 & 7) and spent the vast majority of our time on site as they were having so much fun. As the hideaway is located on a working farm it's well worth taking in the full experience with John...
