Set in 5 acres of farmland, Egmont Farm is an ideal holiday destination for couples or singles, and comes complete with a livery, chickens and shared use of a hot tub! The Hayloft (ref 27032) is a detached converted farm building, Stag Lodge (ref 30430) is a detached lodge and The Hideaway (ref UKC276) is semi-detached, adjoining the owner’s home. All being on the same site, they can be booked singly or together for a larger group. This is a superb base for exploring the surrounding countryside including the medieval Cinque Port town of Rye with its cobbled streets, restaurants, tea rooms, art galleries, and a well-known hat shop that created the wonderful hats in the film ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’! Should the weather become inclement, visit the Kino cinema, the home of digital entertainment, in Lion Street opposite the town hall. The Rother Valley also offers a plethora of walking and cycling opportunities, bring your own bikes and helmets, or hire locally. Within walking distance is the Kent and East Sussex Vintage Steam Railway which chugs its way through 10½ miles of beautiful countryside, enabling you to visit Tenterden, also known as ‘The Jewel of the Weald’, and once another thriving Cinque Port town but now 10 miles from the sea! At the other end of the line is the iconic fairytale, moated Castle Bodiam, which has changed little in 600 years. Enjoy a lazy summer afternoon soaking up the tranquillity of the River Rother and hire a rowing boat, glide effortlessly past the reed beds and spot a kingfisher or heron. The romantic recreation of a medieval manor house at Great Dixter, and its beautiful gardens, are worth a visit. No holiday would be complete without a trip to the vast expanse of golden sand dunes at Camber, glorious in the sunshine, and invigorating when the sea breezes blow. You could even try your hand at kite surfing! The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 people (3 couples). Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
