Love the thought of camping but dread the pitch up with kids in tow? Try a family-friendly glamping holiday, on a farm, in the unspoilt East Devon countryside, yet close to a fabulous selection of beaches. Choose a luxury spacious yurt or safari tent, it's life-changing and inevitably leads to a very chilled and comfortable, not really camping, experience. This is where kids have freedom to play, explore, meet animals and generally just have the time of their lives. Cuckoo Down Farm awaits.

About this place

Best bits

  • Masses of space for the kids to run around safely, while parents relax on the veranda or round a campfire.
  • Pony rides on the farm for children plus lots of farm animals to meet. Including friendly chickens with eggs to collect!
  • Fabulous location with a myriad of beaches to choose from, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lots of days out on the doorstep.

Top tips

  • Book a massage for mum or dad while the kids play in the field.
  • Arrange campfires in the evening and book in catered hot food if you don’t feel like cooking – a treat for all.
  • Stay up late and see amazing stars at night – the site is in an official Dark Skies zone.
