We've just returned from a weekend in skylark with our 15 month old and absolutely loved it! We lucked out with perfect end of October weather, but our thoughtful hosts had thought of everything to make sure we were comfortable - from wellies to a gorgeous down filled duvet. Skylark is beautifully appointed, and the bathroom and kitchen have everything you could need (including yummy scones!). We were lucky enough to be able to enjoy the BBQ facilities and to explore the grounds of manor farm before it turned a bit damp. Highly recommended!
We love this place, we've been twice now. And both times it has exceeded our expectations. From the fresh scones waiting for us upon arrival, feeding the chickens and pigs, bbq boxes made to our specifications, evenings around the fire, walks around the woods, den building, hot cooked breakfasts in a field, catching up with friends and most importantly making amazing memories. The duvets are feather filled and super snugly. The owners have an amazing eye for detail, everything has been thought of. Would thoroughly recommend.
I have just spent a beautiful couple of days with my two kids - 11 and 8 - in Skylark. It was a last minute find and we weren't sure what to expect and were a little unsure about sleeping in a hut in a field ! We shouldn't have fretted as it was a little bit of paradise in the English countryside - a whole field for us, a cosy shepherd's hut and a kitchen and toilet facility all to ourselves. Breakfast delivered to our door at a time of our choosing - paradise ! The highlights were - my kids going off with the daughter of the family to feed the chickens, and pigs and sheep, seeing the wild deer run across our field in the morning, hearing the owl in the trees as we headed off to bed and just having a really relaxing time with my family. Heartily recommended.
We arrived home today after a thoroughly relaxing weekend staying in the fabulous Skylark, whilst our friends stayed in Molly Dishwasher at Manor Farm Stud. Perfect setting, wonderful facilities, generous, friendly and welcoming hosts and an excellent place for children. Feeding the animals and collecting the eggs was a highlight for the children as were the breakfasts for
everyone. Will definitely be going back !!
We have visited here twice now, we stayed in Molly first time round and last year we stayed in the skylark, both are beautiful huts
The owners are the loveliest people I have ever met,
Breakfast which is delivered to your hut in the morning, is beautiful everything you could want,
Woodland walks, country pubs, or you can just relax at the huts and watch the wildlife
We hope to return again soon
Nothing beats a stay at Molly dishwasher
Tranquil, stunningly beautiful with perfect hosts. I do not know how to describe Molly Dishwasher, everything has been thought of. You stay in a very well facilitated shepherds hut, facing beautiful green fields and private woodland. You wake up surrounded by deer and then have an extra ordinary cooked breakfast brought to you. This is on top of your private bathroom and kitchen. We have two sons 5yr and 7 yr old who play in the woods, watch the deer. This is the perfect place for a weekend away, we have just stayed for the third consecutive year and they constantly strive to improve upon what is virtually perfection. Treat yourself and book now (we have already booked for next year). They have 2 shepherds huts, not overlooking each other and a new 2 bedroom cottage.
