We had a great stay at the Cuddly Cow at Campview farm. The Vaughn family was very nice and helpful with suggestions for places to see. Our five-year-old loved seeing the daily life of the farm and we watched the cows being milked. We were able to explore the farm all the way down to the shore. It's conveniently located close to Ballyshannon and also very close to Bundoran. We thoroughly enjoyed our five night stay for the three of us. Thanks again to the family and best of luck!

Unhappy stay at Cuddy Cow

Eggs and milk

A sleeper couch which was supposed to be the double bed. Green emergency exit lights which could not be turned off when trying to sleep. A toilet which doubled as a shower. No TV - weather was awful so no entertainment and couldn't walk around outside. Noise of dairy equipment. No view to speak of.

We had the most wonderful 4 night stay in Campview Farm in their Cuddly Cow Barn! The Vaughans were fantastic hosts with such warm hospitality and great suggestions/recommendations for their local area. It was very obvious how proud they are of their farm & the heritage that goes with it. The milk straight from their milking parkour & eggs from their hens just added to our whole experience! The walking tour of the farm meeting the llamas, pony, rabbits, hens etc is a must! Elspeth is an amazing tour guide and her knowledge extensive. Thoroughly recommend this gem of a find and can’t wait to return. A warm cosy place to rest our heads - perfect for our family of 3! Ideally located for Ballyshannon, Bundoran, Rossnowlagh & Creevy Pier!

since the accomodation I've rented isn't hosted by Travelnest, a hosts parasite company and all the reviews fall under one single bucket which makes it impossible to link them to the actual places people have stayed I think there is no point to review the actual accomodation we've stayed at as nobody will know anyway where it was. Travelnest having currently parasited on almost 1500 places and having more than 11k reviews from all over the world that cannot be linked to the actual places people have stayed in, makes writing reviews irrelevant.

Campview Farm was an unique experience for me, my wife and our couple of friends. What a lovely place! From the bedroom interior design to the farm view and animals, everything in this place was amazing. The Vaughan family gave us such a warm welcome and made us fell comfortable during all our stay. Getting to know their family and their hard work in the farm was a huge bonus. Also, I can’t forget to mention that I tasted the freshest milk I ever had and it was delicious! I couldn’t recommend this place more.

Where to start... I knew we were in for a treat when we turned in the drive. Communication was clear and concise. Everything was very organized - the check-in, the accommodations, the activities- very well done. When booking our trip, I didn't take in that this was a studio; if I had, I would have probably passed on this gem. As a family of four with two college-aged boys, we usually look for someplace we can spread out a bit. We were comfortable, and it was nice that the boys couldn't separate themselves from us too much, but we were pushing the limits space-wise (although with younger kids, it would be ideal.) However - I am so glad we didn't miss out on this magical place. The setting was a farm with a beach, lamas, cows, and sheep- so much to take in. It didn't matter what we were doing- homework, working online, or even walking to the car - it all felt special. Elspeth and Andrew were very welcoming, and their enthusiasm for their way of life was contagious and eye-opening. After getting an overview and familiarizing ourselves with the property, we were treated to fresh bread, butter, and milk. While Elspeth had great restaurant recommendations and "must see" points of interest, Andrew contributed historical information and personal/family experiences. It was a joy to watch them work together. Generally, when we travel, lodging is just someplace to lay our heads after a long day exploring, someplace to get up and out of - but not this time. This time the mind frame was "let's get back to Campview". That brings me to the Llama Trekking experience... Nothing I can say will do it justice - it was extraordinary. I have not seen my 19-year-old genuinely smile so much since he started university, and there was something about it that just worked for him, for us. If you have the opportunity - you must try out Campview Farm. I am grateful our family had the experience we did with the Vaughans.

We loved our 3 night stay at the Campview Farm. The Cuddly Cow accomodations was amazing, very cosy and comfortable. We also booked the farm tour and met all the animals which was great experience, very interesting. Drew and Elspeth told us so many fascinating stories about the land and more! The location of the farm is outstanding, not only with a great view on the river but close to great beaches too. Thank you again for amazing stay!
