Children love darting around in the longer grass, hiding behind the reeds and paddling in the small stream which transverses the field- just make sure they bring their wellies!  They can also collect the eggs from our farm chickens, meet our family of guinea pigs, watch the calves being fed in our nearby calf sheds and try to spot our herd of dairy cows grazing within the hamlet.

A fab little hideaway

We had a fabulous 4 night stay in ‘Beech.’ The tent itself was lovely and homely, really comfortable and everything had been thought of from fleecy blankets to hot water bottles. The overall farm experience was great for the children, they loved saying hello to all the animals and collecting eggs from our allocated chickens. The children all enjoyed being feral, playing in the den and the mud kitchen. A fabulous place and I would recommend for families with children looking to just escape for a while.

Wow! The most luxurious glamp site I have been to or can imagine. A truly beautiful setting, wonderful lotus Bell tents, very comfy beds, private composting toilet AND lovely hot private shower. Very well-equipped private undercover kitchen area and tap. Some wonderful touches as the site is part of a working farm, so lots of calves to look at, your own personal coop of chickens to provide you with fresh eggs every morning. We will be returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Also thoroughly recommend The Crown in West Down (15-20 mins walk) - great welcome and food, and the fish & chip van that visits West Down every Monday evening

Perfect place to relax

We stayed with our two kids (age 4.5 and 1.5). The farm and its surroundings are beautiful and Ella has literally thought of everything. The tent is huge and the beds are really comfy and warm. The kids loved going to collect the fresh eggs from the chicken hutch every morning and saying hello to the guinea pigs too. From a practical pov, the kitchen was ace and had all the cooking the equipment you needed and there's also a play barn if the weather isn't great to hide out in with a few tables and games along with plug sockets which is handy. We loved our stay and Ella was really kind and helpful.

Lovely, relaxing stay that felt like we were away from it all. Perfect for young children.

Ella is a very welcoming host and had thought of everything to make our stay special and hassle free. We had two teenagers and a four year old and there was enough for all of them to do. A particular highlight was checking for eggs from our own chicken coop. Beds are comfortable and everything is clean and well stocked. You literally only need clothes, food and basic toiletries. It felt very COVID safe as we each had our own facilities and although the other guests were friendly, there is enough distance for it to feel private and relaxing. The field is beautiful and it was great to have some shade under the gorgeous trees. It is close enough to get to beaches etc but far enough away to feel like you're escaping society for a while. We are looking forward to returning. Thank you.

Amazing family holiday

We had the best stay at Cheglinch farm glamping. I have an 18 month old and a 6 year old and the site couldn’t be safer. We stayed from Monday-Friday and the facilities were excellent and better than expected. The children loved going to collect the eggs from the chicken hutch every morning and visiting the calves in the barn. We were extremely lucky with the weather so went to the beach each day at Woolacombe and it took no time at all to get there. We will definitely be booking again in the future couldn’t recommend enough!
