Rainy Day Activities: Escape to the Dandelion Hideaway

Osbaston, Leicestershire

Dandelion Hideaway’s canvas cottages offer family-friendly glamping simplicity and the chance to ‘muck in’ with farming activities.

Revel in the freedom of the countryside, and create a truly memorable holiday experience at one of the UK’s best glamping sites.

Grown-ups will appreciate the spacious canvas cottages, wood burning fire and even a roll top bath, while children will love the third ‘bedroom’ in a secret wooden cabin. With classic traditional games and an explorer’s discovery trunk in the tent, there's plenty of activities to enjoy, no matter the weather. Teach them to use the binoculars, I-spy books, tape measure, and magnifying glass and jam jar to record their finds.

You’ll have fun without having to travel for miles - join Farmer John on his guided tour of the nearby farm, help care for the chickens and check for eggs, then eat what you collect that night, using the top-quality facilities in your private cottage.

Animal lovers can groom the Shetland ponies while adventurous types can taste fresh goat's milk from the afternoon milkings. And there’s so much room to play both inside – use the 'Alice in Wonderland' door from the Old Cow Shed into the den – and out.

Bookings for the Dandelion Hideaway's canvas cottages are very popular, so be sure to book well in advance for your glamping getaway. Full details on prices and availability can be found on the website.
