The Dandelion Hideaway


The Dandelion Hideaway offers the ultimate glamping experience. Five spacious “country canvas cottages”, nestled into the idyllic Leicestershire countryside on Osbaston House Farm, offer fun for families and romance for couples. There are chic interiors, vintage touches and a roll top bath in the en suite bathroom, with lashings of hot water. Each sleeps six in two bedrooms, plus a "hayloft", and the well equipped kitchen includes a butler’s sink and a traditional range cooker. This may be camping – but not as you know it.

Located on the edge of Charnwood Forest, this picturesque 250 acre working farm has goats, horses, Shetland ponies, ducks and hens and woods filled with bluebells in the Spring. Find out about life down on the farm, including how to milk the goats, from John Earp, whose family has farmed here for 100 years, whilst Sharon will teach children pony grooming and how to raise hens.

Children will love shopping in the Farm Store, where they can help themselves to supplies, including local bacon for breakfast and sausages for the barbeque, recording their purchases on the blackboard, to be settled at the end of their stay.

Wake up to collect freshly laid eggs for breakfast, spot Badgers at dusk from the nature hide and finish the day toasting marshmallows around the camp fire. In between, ditch the high tech games and TV for the Discovery Trunk, filled with books and ways to inspire children and adults to explore and identify the surrounding countryside, plus artists’ materials to record them.

Nearby attractions include the National Space Centre, Castles galore and steam trains on the Great Central Railway. Walk across the fields to the site of the Battle of Bosworth or sit in the rocking chair on the veranda listening to the bird song and admiring the beautiful English countryside.

Prices start from £450 for a two night weekend break, from £550 for a three night weekend break and from £600 for a week.
