We want to make it easy and fun for everyone to enjoy a taste of country life here in Devon.

The Sheaves family has lived and farmed at Cuckoo Down Farm since 1959. We are John and Becky Sheaves and have been running a campsite here now for six years, with help from our children.

Here, you really can chill out in peace and quiet. We have three yurts and two luxury safari tent in a six-acre meadow. Each tent has its own loo and woodburning stoves to keep you warm and cosy.

We allow small campfires in the evenings and on clear nights we have amazing stars. We are just four miles from the beautiful beaches of the World Heritage Coastline at Beer, Branscombe and Sidmouth.

The tents all have their own kitchen and standpipe of 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), crockery, glassware and cutlery all provided.

We allow up to four adults per yurt or safari tent or six people including children. We have hot showers, washing machine, fridges and tumble dryer on site. There are also power points for re-charging phones etc. 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 two ponies for children to ride and you can collect eggs from our chickens too.
