Super Loyal Guests at the Oast House

As the Oast House holiday let adds another year under its belt for self catering accommodation, I guess it goes without saying that the number of times guests may return creeps on up and up.  We now have many guests who have returned for the second or third time, that's becoming a regular thing. However our most loyal frequenters are the Poulton party who will be returning in November for their 5th time. They are yet to be beaten.

Nicky Poulton is the annual organiser of her reunion with friends and we asked her to tell us, in her own words, as to why the oast house at Hare Farm continues to appeal. 

“We are a group of 5 couples who have been friends for over 30 years.  Once a year, we like to arrange a get together for a few nights of relaxation, walking and catching up.

We have stayed at several different locations over the years but have come back to Hare Farm Oast for 5 years running for a host of reasons. 

First off, the location is perfect for us as we are well spread out over the UK. And as for the actual Oast - it’s beautiful, immaculately clean and the facilities are perfect for cooking and sitting around chatting.  We also like the fact that we mostly have our own bathrooms.  Last year, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather having breakfast in the sun in October - it was perfect.

The surrounding area is lovely for long walks and we like the fact that there are several different walks directly from the Oast meaning we don’t have to get in the car. We have also managed to find pubs on the way.

We find the Oast extremely good value for money compared to other places we have looked at and it suits all our budgets.”

A note on the Oast house for couples 

The Oast House holiday let contains 5 large bedrooms, each with a king or super-king sized bed, and 4 bathrooms. For an extra couple, there is a sofa bed too, or why not spread out into the shepherd’s hut;  2 of you can sleep in this charming bolthole in the field next door. Hare Farm can therefore accommodate 14 adults in total across the oast house and shepherd’s hut holiday lets.
