This was our first time "camping" with our 2 children aged 8months and 2.5 yrs and we all had a brilliant time. The tent was spotless, well furnished ( v comfy beds!) and in a great location at the top of the field.
Everything was provided from wine glasses, lanterns and matches to light the fire!
The farm is beautifully maintained and Becky and John were fantastic hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they were very welcoming.
Our daughter loved feeding the chickens and collecting freshly laid eggs. Maybe next time she'll have the courage to ride the pony!
Showers clean and compost loo really not a problem!
Cuckoo down farm s very well located with Escot and Bicton Gardens within a few miles, both great days out with the kids if it's not beach weather!
We ate at the pea green boat in sidmouth ( as recommended in the folder provided) and it was great, and v reasonably priced.
All in all a great place to stay and very comfortable tent - and warm with the log burner!
