Our Farm

Set on a working livestock and arable farm in the area triangled between the beautiful village of Bethersden, the haunted village of Pluckley and historic village of Smarden - all set deep in the Garden of England.

We are close to the Cinque port town of Tenterden and the town of Ashford, Cranbrook  and  Rye 

Come and share the peace and quiet in the beautiful countryside of East Kent - yet  only about 40 minutes from London or 40 minutes to Dover, Canterbury, Rye and Maidstone.

The huts interiors are non-smoking areas please

We do not accept pets - as we have farm dogs and our farm animals graze the field nearby and may not accept a strange animal in their "patch". We also strongly respect  our clients concerns regarding allergies to pets
