Have just come back from a short Easter break at Cuckoo Down Farm. We hired a yurt for a three night break. I don't normally write reviews but was so impressed with this glamping farm that I decided to .. The yurt was wonderful, very clean and comfortable and wonderfully warm with the wood burner even though it was bitterly... More

We have just returned home from another lovely weekend stay at Cuckoo Down Farm. We usually stay in one of the fantastic yurts but as the children are getting bigger we decided to try a safari tent this time. It did not disappoint, the children loved it, nicely decorated and it offers more space. The location of the farm is... More

My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights from Monday to Friday at Cuckoo Down Farm at the beginning of September. We live in Cornwall and travelled 1.5 hours to stay in one of the 'Luxury Yurts'. Firstly it must be said this place is not the easiest to find using a Sat Nav or Smart phone as the farm is... More

What a wonderful weekend. We along with our 2 kids (aged 8 & 6) fell in love with Cuckoo Down. The highlights for my son were playing in the stream, exploring the woods and building campfires, whilst my daughter loved visiting the farm animals, playing with Lily the collie dog and riding Ebony the pony. There were also plenty of... More

We've just spent a week in the Bluebell yurt. It was fab. The weather was glorious which helped a lot but the farm also provided such a fantastic environment for the kids (7, 5 and 2). The yurts and safari tents are really well spaced so we didn't feel like we were on top of the other families (or disturbing... More

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay in the yurt Clover, with our 3 small boys aged 6, 4 and 3. We simply cannot fault anything about this glamping experience and will be booking again for summer 2015! I hadn't packed myself a book thinking I simply wouldn't have time to read with the boys about,... More

I stayed last year, loved it and booked it immediately on our return ( a year ahead!!). I was a little nervous to see if lived up to our magical first time memory and all I can say was that it was even better second time around. It's the same as it was before, just perfect. The kids were playing... More

We visited cuckoo down farm last week and had a fantastic time. We stayed in a safari tent and it was very clean and well decorated and maintained. The farm felt worlds away anywhere yet in easy reach from all the main attractions in Devon. Well worth a visit and highly recommended by both my husband and me.

This being our first foray into the world of 'glamping', I must admit that we had reservations, however, these immediately ebbed away as we pulled into 'Cuckoo Down Farm' and were met by the owner John, his dog Lilly, several chickens and two goats. Our two children (aged four and eight) were overwhelmed by the freedom of the place and... More
