Easter Holidays at Hare Farm

The Easter holidays are not far away now, and if you are still looking to get away with the family, there is a week available at Hare Farm Oast (from Friday 10th April) and several nights available at the Shepherd's hut. 

This week we have seen Springtime emerge across the farm, not least with over 600 lambs already being born, and we still aren't halfway through lambing season yet! By the time the Easter holidays arrive, lambs will be everywhere, right up close to the gardens, and then peppered "forever" across the valley landcsape. We will no doubt be bottle-feeding some orphaned lambs, and I am sure there will still be a few overdue ewes keen to make our lambing season drag on for that little bit longer...

As the pastures, hedgerows and watercourses spring into life with nature, walks across the farm are ever the more interesting. Our local pub, the Red Lion Inn is just a 15 minute walk away and serves lovely home cooked food, and sells delicious every day items to take home with you (bacon, eggs, homemade bread, butter ...). 

In Rye and the surrounding areas, there is plenty to keep the family amused. Even on a wet day, we have got it sorted: Rye now has a new cinema (Rye Kino) and Pontins at Camber opens its doors for day vistors for just £5 per adult, £3 per child.

But let's aim for sunny weather and enjoy the many attractions in the area. National Trust properties such as Batemans and Bodiam Castle, along with English Heritage's Battle Abbey, all have special egg trails organised, Hastings has plenty of events inside and out, and the great days out at Bewl Water, Bedgebury Pinetum or Drusillas Zoo are all not too far away. Our local beaches are as close as a ten minute drive: Winchelsea Beach and Pett Level offer a quieter side, with rock pools, pebbles and a fun Pig eaterie at Pett Level, whilst Camber Sands and its vast sandy beach and sand dunes are just 20 minutes drive from the farm. 

We then also have some lovely gardens not far from Hare Farm, including Great Dixter in Northiam and Hole Park with its fabulous bluebells. Brede High Woods are well-known and enjoyed, as well as Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and Dungeness which provide some wonderfully different stretches of our special coastline. 

The list of things to do over the Easter holidays goes on and on. 

Or just kick back and unwind on the farm, enjoy the acres of space and let the lambs entertain you from your own private idyll.
