idyllic self catering near rye, east sussex
Hare Farm Hideaways is home to two unique self-catering farm stays, large and small, both stylishly 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 a fifteen minute walk from 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 self catering holiday home for large groups of friends or families, and is well placed for the sandy beaches of East Sussex and only 10 - 20 minutes drive from the ancient towns of Rye, Battle and Tenterden.
An alternative farm holiday is to stay in the shepherd's hut, tucked away in its own private idyll, overlooking a lake and rolling valleys. Shepherds hut holidays are an ideal glamping retreat for couples, all year round.
Lambing Courses and Holidays
Experience lambing up close by attending one of the day's lambing courses in March 2016 at Hare Farm. Combining a mix of learning, observation and hands-on practical experience, our lambing courses are ideal for anyone seeking a special insight into what really goes on at lambing time - it's something that very few get to see.
Stay on the farm during lambing time, and you'll have chance to peek your heads into the lambing sheds, and enjoy the lambs in the fields playing all around you. What's more ideal than staying in a shepherd's hut, used by shepherds in Victorian lambing times, so they could keep watch on their flock all day and night. The shepherd's hut and oast house are just a stone's throw from the lambing sheds and are surrounded by pastures which will be bursting with lambs from mid March to the end of Summer.
New Charity Day Mini Lambing Workshops will take place on 12th March 2016. Ideal for those just wanting to make a brief visit, and perhaps to bring their family along too. The workshops are 2 hours in duration, and all proceeds raised on the day will go to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
