Easter Holidays on the Farm
9th March 2017
The Easter holidays has to be one of the best times of the year to enjoy a farm stay at Hare Farm. Springtime is taking hold and nature is awakening.
What could be more iconic for nature's reference to Springtime than that of the newborn lamb? And here at Hare Farm, we are about to welcome nearly 2000 of them into the world in the coming weeks.
Although the lambing courses are now full, we still have some availability in the Oast house and shepherd's hut, including space during the Easter holidays. Stay on the farm during the holidays and the family can enjoy so much that surrounds them
- lambing time on the farm - with young lambs playing in the fields all around. You may get the chance to bottle feed the orphaned lambs too
- a lovely big Oast garden with plenty of space for ball games and burning off enregy. There's also a smaller gated area for the toddlers to enjoy.
- several walks from your doorstep - over hills, down into the valley, over rivers and streams, through the fields of sheep and lambs. Once part of the historic Brede Place Estate, the countryside is unspoilt and interesting here
- a 15-20 minute amble to the local pub for lunch or tea. It's the Red Lion in Brede and has a wonderful welcoming atmosphere. The evenings are lightening now, and the house has plenty of torches if you'd like to amble back after dark!
- the beaches of Camber Sands, Wincheslea and Pett are all within 15 minutes drive away. And how about Rye Harbour nature reserve which has fabulous long stretches of concrete walkways and tracks - brilliant for learning to ride bikes or racing along on scooters.
- some fabulous days out to castles - how about Bodiam castle where you can boat up the river, or Battle Abbey? Both are within a 20 minute drive
- and just pop in and out of the glorious medieval towns of Rye and Battle, with lovely places to eat and meander. They are only 10 minutes drive away - On a wet day, Rye has the perfect bolthole - the supersweet Kino, a boutique cinema house in the heart of town
Take a look here for availability at the Oast, sleeping 10 (or an additional 2 on a sofa bed) with plenty of space for families and friends
And you can bolt on an extra bedroom if you choose the delightful shepherd's hut, just a 100 metres away enjoying its own private idyll and valley views. Or alternatively, it can be booked separately and has its own private kitchen and bathroom too.
Come and watch nature's spectacle unfold this spring and Easter. Hare Farm is the place to be.
