idyllic self catering and glamping - rye, east sussex

Hare Farm Hideaways is home to two unique self-catering farm stays, large and small.

Both celebrating England's rural past, the Oast house and Shepherd's hut boast fabulous views of the Brede Valley, set on our working sheep farm. They may be tucked away in an uspoilt part of rural Sussex, yet they are still only a ten minute drive from Rye and Hastings, and just a fifteen minute stroll to the local pub.  

Hare Farm Oast is one of the few large holiday homes in the Rye area. It sleeps 10 and is surrounded by spectatular far-reaching views of the rolling Sussex countryside. Stay in the oast house and indulge in stylish, contemporary living surrounded by the architectural beauty of an historic building with three round kilns. The Oast is an ideal house to rent for large groups of friends or families, and is well placed for the sandy beaches of East Sussex. It's also only 10 - 20 minutes drive from the ancient towns of Rye, Battle, Hastings and Tenterden.

If a unique tranquil glamping experience is what you are seeking, stay in the shepherd's hut. It's tucked away in its own private idyll, overlooking a lake and rolling valleys. We have just the one shepherd's hut, all on its own.  Shepherds hut holidays are an ideal glamping retreat for couples, all year round.

Lambing Courses

Lambing courses are now open for bookings for March 2019. The hands-on, practical courses are perfect for novice sheepkeepers, aspiring vets or anyone who is fascinated by what goes on behind the scenes at lambing time.  Maximum 8 people per course, and spaces are still available.
