    General FAQs

    Yes, guests park in our barnyard area and we transport you and your luggage to your accommodation in our farm buggy. We collect you and return you to your car on the day you check-out. In between times you’re free to explore the farm on foot. Farm vehicles are the only vehicles allowed on site.

    No I’m afraid not. We have a strict no dogs/pets policy. While we’re dog lovers we’re also a working farm with livestock and a nature reserve with free range deer and plenty of wildlife, and experience has taught us that it’s just not worth the risk no mater how well behaved your dog is promised to be. So it’s a one size fits all rule – no dogs.

    Rye is the nearest train station – six miles away. It’s not on a direct line from London. Trains from London run into Ashford International and then there is a connecting train to Rye. Trains from Brighton to Rye require one or two changes depending on the service.

    If you are staying in The Longview, The Roundhouse or Woodcutter’s Cottage you will be able to charge your phone in your accommodation as you will have a power supply. If you’re staying Meadow Keeper’s Cottage, Wood or Penfold Cabins your holiday will be completely off grid – there is no power supply. You may use the power points in our honesty shop to charge your phones but you leave them there at your own risk.

    Yes absolutely all of our accommodations have both smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Each is also equipped with a fire extinguisher and a fire blanket. All wood burners also have a fire guard.

    No not all of them. The ponds which are closest to accommodation spaces are fenced, but others you may discover and enjoy as you walk around the farm are left open and the landscape unspoiled. We provide a map of the farm so you can see where the ponds are. Please ensure your children are supervised

    Please take a look at our farm map. You’ll see that the two cabins are in a shared paddock in the centre of our farm about five minutes’ walk from the barnyard where you park your car. Meadow Keeper’s Cottage is about ten minutes’ walk from the barnyard as are The Long View and Woodcutter’s Cottage – each in a different direction as they occupy their own private areas. The Roundhouse is about five minutes’ walk from the barnyard.
