Cuckoo Down Farm did nothing but impress us and as it was my family's first experience of glamping, we absolutely loved the yurts and our experience at Cuckoo Down Farm. Everything was thought of, down to supplying a vase of freshly picked flowers, to warm beautiful bedding and logs, kindling and matches ready to light the log burner. It was like being in a Enid Blighton novel! The owners are really friendly and welcoming, taking the 6 small children in our group on a pony ride in the morning and letting them collect eggs from the chickens. We were a group of 3 families and we all managed to eat together in the evening by moving our picnic table to one agreed yurt - the one in the middle - it worked really well. Hot running showers 24/7 an honesty shop and real peace and quiet of rural living. The children loved it, we loved it and will be booking again for next year. Thank you The Sheaves family.
