We stayed on the wild camping site in an unfurnished lotus belle tent. The tent was lovely, and the views were absolutely incredible. There were well maintained composting toilets with fairy lights. Any assistance needed was simply a text message away – Would 100% stay here again 😊

We had a wonderful time at the campsite. The tents are cosy and spacious, everything is so well thought through, from the wheelbarrow to get your luggage from the car to the well equipped outside kitchen. The kids loved to get the eggs from the chickens for breakfast, we watched the calves getting their milk, it was such a peaceful environment. Also just a 15 minute drive to some of the most amazing beaches.I am sure we will come again. Thank you Ella!

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.

We stayed at Cheglinch Farm Glamping this weekend with a group of friends. The site was absolutely beautiful. A perfect balance between being neat and tidy without being character-less. We booked all three yurts, but I loved that each tent had its own toilet, kitchen and shower so although the yurts were all close together it still felt very private. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with everything you would need to cook and prepare food. The shower and toilet facilities were modern and well kept.Although it was very cold this weekend, Ella had gone to great lengths to make sure we were as warm as possible with additional blankets and hot water bottles. Being able to collect eggs from the hens each morning was a fabulous bonus!Thank you Cheglinch for a fantastic first glamping experience!
