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 area. It sleeps 12 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.
a farm stay in spring
Hare Farm is now bursting with new life. Over 2000 lambs are born here in March and early April, and throughout the following weeks and months they play under the shepherd's hut, graze up to the Oast's garden and generally entertain and delight the guests who stay.
In the spring-time, wildlife and wild flowers burst into action, the fields and hedgerows burst into colour, and what better plae to throughoughly soak up what Spring has to offer than to stay on a farm, unspoilt and tranquil, yet not far from many things to do.
There is still some availability over the Easter holidays. Why not escape your normal world and bring the family or friends to another world where Spring-time creations are bountiful.
