We stayed at Connie's farm for 5 days with our 3 children (6 yo, 2 yo and 6 months baby). The place is just perfect - the hut has absolutely everything you need and more, it's super clean and comfortable even for a big family like ours. There is plenty of space in the orchard for kids to play and parents to unwind. Alicia is a perfect host, she has a great attention to detail. Our kids loved the farm, Alicia showed them around and they collected eggs from chickens. We will certainly be back for more fun. Highly recommended!
Tranquil location in a lovely part of the country. The huts were exactly like the photos, so we were not disappointed. We stayed for 2 weeks as a family of four and a dog, so the extra bed in the dining hut was a life saver. We felt welcomed and safe in the huts and its surroundings, being very dog friendly in the orchard. Lots of pleasant walks near by if you don't want to travel by car. All mod cons with free wifi on tap. I would recommend this accommodating for anyone wanting to escape into a slower pace of life with the ability to travel to the seaside within 30 minutes.
What an amazing setting! as soon as we arrived, we could hear the perfect silence, with peace and quiet.
We were met with a welcoming smile from Alicia, who made us feel "at home" from the moment we stepped into the Shepherd's hut.
It is located so well between pubs, walks and countryside that we were spoilt for choice - which pub to walk to, - which walk we would do each day.
Alicia gave us so much helpful information and maps to guide us on our walks - it was just great.
We lit the log fire and sat around it at night and just listened to the birds and the owl.
Absolutely perfect for a break with privacy, peace and quiet. Will definitely go there again with no hesitation at all.
This was our second stay in the Conies Farm Shepherd's Hut and we were once again, blown away with just how beautifully cosy, clean and comfortable our visit was. Our host (Alicia) met us with a bright, cheerful smile once again and made sure we got settled in quickly. The little treats left in the hut for us were a wonderful touch and made the beginning of this, our second stay, feel even more special. It was wonderful to see the updates made to the adjacent dining hut - a gorgeous wooden bench that folds down to provide another bed and some rather cute curtains to make the area private should you want to. Just perfect if you have more than just a couple staying, or if you just fancy an afternoon snooze by the log burner! Throwing the blankets provided around our shoulders one evening so we could sit out and star gaze whilst enjoying some toasted marshmallows was certainly a highlight! It was wonderful being shown around the farm again and seeing some of the changes since our last stay. The little piglets especially were very cute! There's plenty to see if you want to as well as some fantastic places to visit locally (including some great pubs, local towns and villages or even walks through the bluebell forests) but equally, Alicia is a very sympathetic host and will respect your privacy should you prefer a more quiet, laid back stay with minimal contact. Nothing is too much trouble but being left to your own devices is certainly one of the benefits of this gorgeous hide out in the West Sussex countryside. Alicia keeps the hut immaculately clean with just about everything you need for your stay, whether that is for one or two nights or a week or two. The farm is both child and animal friendly, with Alicia ensuring everyone feels right at home. Do not hesitate to book a stay here, you really will not be disappointed. Whether you are a family, friends or just a couple looking for a romantic escape to the country...you will not be disappointed! Already looking forward to our third visit! Thank you Alicia!
I booked the hut as a surprise for my husbands birthday and we both weren't disappointed. From the moment I booked Alicia was happy to help with everything. We took our puppy with us and he loved exploring the paddock and meeting Alicia's dogs. The hut itself was beautiful and has everything you could need. Lovely walks nearby and very peaceful. We haven't stopped telling our friends and family about it and will definitely be returning!
Thank you Alicia for such a memorable weekend.
