Award-winning glamping on a family-run farm in the beautiful Devon countryside, with safari tents and hot tubs.
Cuckoo Down Farm offers award-winning glamping in beautiful Devon countryside with safari tents and hot tubs.
Welcome to Cuckoo Down Farm, set in beautiful Devon countryside near the World Heritage coastline at Sidmouth and its beautiful, safe beaches.
Enjoy a relaxing holiday in this stunning location: four beautifully decorated safari lodges, some with hot tubs, and two gorgeous yurts provide relaxed and easy glamping, designed with couples and families in mind.
Experience all the fun of the farm including ponies, chickens, campfires and 30 acres of unspoilt meadows plus a three-acre oak and bluebell wood.
We offer the comforts of the very best glamping with hot tubs, hot showers, wood-burning stoves, sofas, rugs and double beds. Holidays here are perfect for couples, families with children and groups of friends. We also offer whole-site booking for hen nights and weddings.
We allow up to four adults per yurt or six people including children. Safari tents can accommodate up to six adults. We have hot showers, washing machine, fridges and tumble dryer on site. There are also power points for charging devices. There’s plenty of parking onsite and we are fully insured.
Our farm has five fields and a three-acre oak wood, with a pretty stream running through it. Look out for swallows, foxes, rabbits, badgers, deer and owls.
We’re a working farm with a flock of Suffolk cross sheep, as well as ponies for children to ride and you can collect eggs from our chickens too.
We are very dog-friendly and welcome well-behaved canine visitors.
The glamping tents at Cuckoo Down Farm each have their own kitchen, loo and fresh drinking water. They are cosily furnished with double beds, sofa beds, cushions. Each kitchen has a bottled gas stove (two rings and a grill) and crockery, glassware and cutlery are all provided. The safari tents have their own hot showers in each tent and the yurts share a lovely, clean, spacious shower barn..
Each tent has a fully equipped kitchen with plentiful supplies of washing-up liquid, surface cleaner, kitchen cloths and tea towels, instant coffee and tea bags. We provide a starter set for your campfire/wood burner – a box of firelighters, a net of kindling, a net of logs, matches and old newspapers for lighting your woodburning stove. We provide lanterns and lights, all are re-chargeable and/or solar powered. Don’t forget to bring your own torches though.
We try to be as low-impact on the environment as possible. Our cleaning products are eco-friendly and we use sustainably-sourced wood for our wood burning stoves. The loos are compost (and very well designed and pleasant!). We recycle as much as possible and make it easy for our guests to do the same. Our farm produces high-welfare, free-range pork and lamb and all our animals are happy and well cared for.
We aim to make this a holiday where you don't have to bring too much kit, as we have thought of everything and provided it!

Explore the three-acre oak wood, see birds, badgers, foxes, deer and owls. Build dens and dam the stream, run about, fly kites, bring kids’ bikes to ride round the field. In Spring, feed the lambs and maybe even see some born (due dates mid – late May). Ride our pony Ebony, play football, rounders, frisbee and cricket. Spot stars at night, light camp fires, toast sausages and marshmallows. Collect eggs, feed the chickens, play with our sheepdog Lily. Book holistic treatments and yoga classes.
