VisitBritain’s magazine

We're delighted to feature in VisitBritain’s magazine designed for the international audience in their annual roundup of 6 Best Places to Stay category. The Dandelion Hideaway is picked for the category “Six of the Best Farm Stays”.

The Dandelion Hideaway at Osbaston House Farm, Leicestershire, central England.

"If you like the idea of living deep in nature but with cosy home comforts, head to The Dandelion Hideaway. Available from April to October, these six 3-bedroom ‘canvas cottage lodges’ are set on the edge of woodland within the farm’s acres of peaceful countryside. Each cottage has a bathroom with a roll-top bath, a big dining table, a fridge and a wood-burning stove. Guests can  collect fresh eggs from the hens at any time, join farmer John to milk the goats, groom the Shetland ponies, and spot badgers in the badger’s hide. There is also a new indoor children’s den play area and The Old Cow Shed shop sells sausages, bacon, eggs and goat’s cheese. Guests can request one of owner Sharon’s homemade stews and eat under the stars by the warmth of a campfire."

Getting there:
The farm is a 25-minute drive or one hour bus ride from Nuneaton station, which is a 75 minute train journey from London St Pancras International.

Places to visit nearby:
Spot deer in sprawling Bradgate Park, a 20 minute drive away, or visit magnificent country mansion Belvoir Castle, a one hour drive away.
