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

Had a fabulous time this weekend at Cuckoo Down Farm. We stayed in the Poppy Safari tent and is was beyond our expectations. 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!

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
