Manor Farm Happy Hens & a Splash Spring Colour



Our ‘Manor Farm Happy Hens’ in a morning.
I wonder which will be the first to venture out?





Look what special eggs the Manor Farm Cottage Happy Hens lay for our guests….

They even have love hearts inside!






We just love the vivid splash of colour the camellia has to offer when little else is in bloom in the garden at Manor Farm

Wonderful Weekend At Manor Farm Cottage

DSCF2543What a wonderful weekend at Manor Farm Cottage. As a birthday surprise my husband treated me to a ride in a hot air balloon.It was fantastic to be able to set off from the field belonging to Manor Farm. I love the beautiful countryside around Manor Farm Cottage but to see it from the air was just simply stunning.



Beautiful Views Near Manor Farm Cottage

We had a wonderful day, driving over the beautiful Strines into Derbyshire. The purple heather covered the moors like a carpet.  We are so lucky that Manor Farm Cottage is only 15 minutes away from such beautiful scenery. I thought I’d share my day with you… 🙂

We arrived home to Sonata, one of our very friendly Alpacas, enjoying a carrot treat! 😉

How nice not to be woken up by the shrill sound of the alarm clock but by the dawn chorus, the voice of spring and early summer. I love this time of day when everything starts to ‘wake up’ and a new and exciting day begins. Today I thought I would get up and take an early morning stroll around the meadows at Manor Farm Cottage. How quiet and peaceful, just the dog and the wildlife for company. Perfect. What a wonderful start to the day. I picked these beautiful wild flowers on my walk and thought I’d share them with you.Meadow Flowers
