Summer Holidays on the Farm

What better adventure for you and the family than to spend your summer holidays on the farm?  

Hare Farm used to welcome over 10 families, and nearly 100 people when it was a thriving hop farm in the 1960s. Families would spend 6 weeks in the summer holidays on the farm, with parents hop picking, and children playing. The oast house was the most important working building on the farm, with its three round kilns drying the hops once harvested. The working families use to live in wooden and tin huts in the field nearby, namely hoppers huts. 

Now the oast house is converted into a stylish contemporary holiday home, sleeping 12. Family holidays at Hare Farm  are just a bit more upmarket these days (!!) but they still hold plenty of adventure. 

The oast house is still available in the summer holidays, for one week from 16th August 2013.
