We recently spent three days in a safari tent (Primrose) at Cuckoo Down Farm and it was fantastic from start to finish. There is nothing that the owners Becky & John have not thought about. The safari tent was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed for a Glampng adventure. Our sons (6&9yrs) loved the open field where they could... More

We stayed in one of the Safari tents and they are well equipped with rechargeable lanterns which you'll need as its pitch black from early evening! The kitchen was extremely well equipped too with a... More

We have visited once before and decided this time to hire the whole site for a family occasion. The hosts were as ever friendly and helpful, the accommodation spotless, comfy and they have thought of everything you might need. The kids loved exploring and such a bonus to be able to roam free around the huge meadow field and splash... More

We stayed in primrose safari tent, we were lucky as primrose is new and was the only tent with a shower. The tent was clean and nicely furnished. The travel cot, high chair and toys we requested were all in place when we arrived. The field is nice, the stream is lovely for kids to play in, the spacing of... More

We are a family of 5 with 3 young children and we stayed in a safari tent which was comfortable and spacious and contained everything we needed. The accommodation is set in a beautiful large meadow and the units are well spaced out so that you dont encroach on other guests in any way. The meadow is quiet and peaceful... More

Nicely furnished, cosy and warm with the wood burner on and plenty of space for everyone to chill out. The owners really have thought of everything you would need for a relaxing break away. We stayed with... More

We had a fantastic 4 night stay at Cuckoo Down Farm. We arrived to a very friendly welcome and were quickly shown to our safari tent Poppy, and she was amazing! Absolutely huge! A beautiful veranda out the front (which we were lucky enough to use everyday due to a wonderful week sunshine!) and large main tent. A beautiful log... More
