Arrival details. We are out in the sticks so if you are arriving late in the evening please bring something to eat or request supplies as chances of prompt food delivery are slim (there is a great Indian restaurant and delivery though). Follow the satnav directions but be warned it will try and take you down Merrion Farm track about 150m from The Wisp DO NOT go down the track! Look out for painted and lit sign for Northblows (mainhouse) and The Wisp on the B2135. If you're driving from Partridge Green the sign and turning will be on your right, if coming from Ashurst the sign and turning will be on your left. Go down the track and park alongside the barn.
We enjoy the green life and chose to live in the peace and quiet of rural West Sussex on the edge of the South Downs national park with plenty of space to breathe, clear night skies and time for bikes and kites. But we also love the good life and are delighted to see local producers and companies offering top quality coffee, cheese and wines on our doorstep. We are also in easy striking distance, 30 mins drive, into the colour and fun of Brighton, one of the best cities in the world (we think!) The Wisp is a blend of these pleasures; reclaimed materials in a calm, natural space combined with the best linens, giant shaggy beanbags and beautiful lighting.
