We went as a family of five to Cuckoo Down Farm and stayed in one of the Safari tents. It was our first time glamping and I must confess I was unsure what to expect. I needn't have worried as it was a wonderful place. We were kindly greeted by Becky who gave directions to our tent. It was fun... More

Cuckoo Down Farm is perfectly situated for a very relaxing holiday. Set in beautiful Devonshire countryside and close to the sea, it offers plenty for the nature loving family. We stayed for 7 nights in a safari tent which had everything we could need to make our stay comfortable. Our two bedrooms (a double and a twin) had lovely comfy... More

A perfect Half term holiday with our 11 year old ,on arrival we were welcomed and directed through the two fords to our yurt, this is the only time vehicles are allowed on site (which is great). Our yurt was clean and tidy with flowers left on the side. The kitchen was fully fitted with all we could need, double... More

What a way to camp! We usually camp with our own tent and bits, but we thought this looked such a good idea to 'glamp' instead this time. And, boy it was sooooo much better! No hassle and so beautiful. We stayed in Poppy Safari tent and it was idyllic in Kath Kidston style, down to the comfy sofas, perfect... More

We travelled to Cuckoo Down Farm in the Easter Holidays (early April) and stayed in one of the yurts from Monday to Friday. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by John, who was lovely and welcoming. Everything was immediately friendly, calm and at ease. We walked into the yurt and were struck by how beautifully it had been... More

My husband and I and our two daughters age 10 and 12 have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay in poppy safari tent. The peace and quiet is lovely, we had glorious weather and visited Sidnouth, Beer and Budleigh Salterton. We especially liked Beer and Sidmouth. We enjoyed toasting marshmallows on the campfire in the evenings and playing... More

Me, my husband and our 5 year old daughter have just spent a perfect weekend in one of the yurts and we really can't speak highly enough of Cuckoo Down Farm. We easily found the place with help of a satnav and the great directions which were emailed to us. The site itself is peaceful and idealic and the yurt... More

We have just returned from a three-night stay at Cuckoo Down Farm... We spent the weekend in a luxurious, comfortable and cosy safari tent with a wood burning stove, lots of space to relax and super cosy beds! We didn't need to bring a thing; the outdoor kitchen area was well stocked with all the utensils and crockery we needed.... More

Have just come back from a short Easter break at Cuckoo Down Farm. We hired a yurt for a three night break.
