Merrion Farm

Merrion Farm


A very quickly shot and edited film from a stop earlier this year at Withyfield Cottage Merrion Farm in West Sussex. A hidden treasure right on my doorstep
An idyllic hideaway! I've just come back from a long weekend at Withyfields Hut and it was bliss. I was so content the whole weekend! The hut has so many lovely little touches, the wood burner got me all cosy and the peace and quite in the wood, with only the birdsong and the occasional cow was balm for the soul. I walked to the Fountain Inn which is cute and cosy; and did the horseshoe walk in Steyning which is well worth it as you get some great views! and can have fab cake after!
The setup had everything you need- hot shower, all utensils for campfire cooking...
Janice was super friendly and welcoming and gave me a lift to the bus on my last day, as well as a lift into Steyning (I was wheel-less).
It was my first glamping experince but I am utterly hooked and cannot wait to see this place with more spring flowers Christmas...
Definitely recommended.
Peace and tranquillity
Time to re connect with each other and nature
Lovely host in Janice
Want to go again soon

Working dairy farm with holiday options

Operating as usual


Good Moos!!
Six days after Storm Eunice hit, we finally got all our power back on today.
Soooo looking forward to a nice long bath tonight.
(We have been washing every day though!)


What a sweetheart !!
I love that all our dairy cows and calves have different markings.This one always makes me smile.


Loving the longer days - still light at 5o'clock this evening.


Warm and cosy!
Our polytunnel makes the perfect home for these youngsters in winter.
(I like it too - I am thinking about getting a kettle and brew box ??)


Blue Monday ?
Really starting to notice the days getting longer - that's got to be good news!


Escaped !
(with the last mincepies, chocolate and my paints)


Ok folks - who knows what's happening here?


****** Escape Relax Recharge *****
Woodburning stove, walks from the door, wonderfully crafted.

Meet (not so Grand) Finale.
The last calf to be born in 2021 and the last calf till March.
Perhaps things won't be so hectic now?
(And thank to my lovely helper - you are a star.)


Have you herd? The days are getting longer.
That's got to be good news!!


Joy of the Day !
Any name ideas?
So far we have Teddy, Rusty or Chad (as in Chad Valley)


Busy getting ready for our next guests!
(I thought these socks matched when I got dressed this morning)


Would you like to escape here before the madness of christmas?
We have 2 short breaks in the cottage left for 2021
(29th Nov - 4 night and 13th Dec - 4 nights)


Experiences are better than stuff ?
(Christmas vouchers are available for super organised people.)

Blue - min Marvelous !!
(The bluebells are late this year and I am not sure they will last long, it's been so dry. But very beautiful all the same.)


Just getting ready for the next guests ?
Or can you spot what is really going on ?


The Dengineers have been again !


Good Luck to all the small businesses opening today for the first time this year!!
