I officiated at a wedding at Hillycows, the facilities are very good, a small number of wooden cabins, with lovely communal spaces - sitting room and kitchen. The views are magnificent, and facilities for children based on the working farm. The location is just outside of the city, within easy reach of transport. The owners are very friendly, and are...

We had a brilliant night at hillycow wig wams last night! Took our little dog too and she also loved it. We can't wait to return. The wigwams and amenities block were spotless and had everything you could need and more. The family that run the wigwams were great and couldn't do enough to help you (their dogs were lovely...

This is the 3rd time I've stayed here and it just gets better. They are constantly making improvements albeit more towards being child friendly (I don't have any) such as a climbing frame/slide but still it's great. The owners are just the most lovely people you could meet. They go above and beyond to help you out if possible. The...

The amenities were very clean and better equipped than anticipated. Overall a lovely, lovely...

Stayed just recently with four of my friends to celebrate the end of her 18th birthday. Owners of the wigwams were lovely, kind and very welcoming, and everything was very cute and tidy. Communal kitchen area and games room is nice, very well kept. The wigwam itself was cosy and toasty (although there was five of us heating it up)...

We had a absolutely fantastic time here. We stayed in the Henry wigwam which was en-suite. The wigwag was a great size with two double beds a table with four chairs and a wee fridge and kettle. It was lovely and comfy and very clean. The facilities on site were top class with a great kitchen/communal area. The showers were...

One night stay with university friends. Wee bit off the beaten track but owner was helpful & kitchen facility to use was excellent. Shower & toilets were very nice too, clean & modern. Small games/tv room for kids & playground area. Amazing views across the countryside.

We've stayed in wigwams/pods a couple of times now and find the standard similar each time. This had a heater, kettle and fridge in. What made this holiday stand apart from our others was the extras. There's a great play area for the kids, fenced in and with a gate a 2 year old can't open. There's also scooters /...
