This was our first time glamping and really had very little idea of what to expect. True to say though that we were blown away with the accommodation, setting and entire experience at Dandelion. John and Sharon are great hosts, they show you all you need to know and then leave you to it, but always on hand if you...

We spent last weekend at the Dandelion and although there was plenty of rain we didn't let it spoil our time there. The children had an amazing time - collecting eggs, playing with the newly born goats, helping Sharon with the horses. The tents are very well equipped and have everything you need. The fire was easy to start and...

Booked two tents with three children under 5. Hares Form and Foxs Den. Hares form was tucked away at the end of the field and was very private with a large deck. It was quite dark even during the day so when cooking needed lamps on. We had the fire pit there and it was protected from the wind which...
