About
Description
For memorable holidays & romantic escapes, the Dandelion Hideaway’s hamlet of beautiful canvas cottages melts into acres of rolling Leicestershire countryside, with endless space for ambling, walks & More discovery. Swap the daily rush for collecting freshly laid eggs, milking the dairy herd of goats and grooming Shetland ponies. Relax and spoil yourself, indulge in the peace, birdsong and starry nights. A delightfully memorable experience; truly luxurious glamping, with laidback rural days peeping into agricultural-farming life. We are the only glamping destination to have won the prestigious VisitEngland Excellence Award (self-catering) in 2014, 2015, 2016. In 2017, we achieved a milestone, winning the most prestigious honour from VisitEngland, winners of ‘Glamping Provider of the Year’, officially the best in England. The Trip Advisor story is the icing on the cake, achieving the Certificate of Excellence; 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017. In 2018 we qualified for the Hall of Fame! Less
