We have just visited cuckoo down darn and stayed in one of the three yurts they currently have on site. We went with friends so the whole site was effectively ours. This is Glamping and the yurts were spacious and comfy and very cosy when the woodburners was going. Compost loos were surprisingly ok (I am a bit precious about toilets!) and the kitchen facilities great. Having a shower was nippy in April but there was plenty of hot water! Becky and John were lovely and the kids did horse riding on the farm and enjoyed the sheep, woods and chickens. Our group couldn't have done without our gazebo and firepit that we took with us as made a more communal area for meals and vino for the grown ups in the group! If you do go in April take plenty of layers and blankets as it is nippy!
