Bosney Farm is an organic mixed farm with sheep and a herd of pedigree Sussex cattle. We also grow crops of wheat , beans and oats.
The farmhouse is in a very rural location with spectacular views over the Romney marsh towards the North Downs in the far distance and is close to Rye and the beaches at Camber and Winchelsea.
AUGUST 2013 "We have had a wonderful family get together in this superbly appointed house, thoughtfully presented. Visited Bodiam, Camber, Rye, Sissinghurst Castle, Winchelsea Beach"
MAR 2013 - "Had the most relaxing weekend - everything you could possibly need, so much so that we never left the house. Thank you, just what we needed. We will be back!"
FEB 2013 - "We have loved our time at Bosney! 2 families (4 adults, 5 kids and 2 dogs) The house was well placed for us and we were never short of anything. Amazing beds! Felt really homely and special. Our kids have had an amazing few days at the farm with all the friendly people, dogs, sheep, cows - and new born lambs! That was something extra for our city kids! We can highly recommend Bosney Farm!!"
JAN 2013 "Such a shame this was only a weekend - thank you so much for a wonderful time. A perfect farmhouse in a really special setting. The kids have loved the animals and we have loved all the space and the details"
I've stayed at Bosney several times and it has always been so special. The house is very well equipped and has wonderful views. There's masses of space for family or friends to unite and relax and you're not far from Rye or the beach for walks and great pubs.
A fabulous East Sussex farmhouse ideal for a family get together located just off a quiet lane with plenty of parking. The comfortable lounge has plenty of seating around the inglenook fireplace with a fitted log burner. The open plan large kitchen is well fitted and kitted out with plenty of crockery and cutlery and cooking utensils with an equally large breakfast/dining room with seating for 12 and a couple of comfortable armchairs. All the bedrooms are a good size.
The house has everything you need and was very clean and good soft furnishings, linen and towels. There was plenty of hot water and the heating kept the house lovely and warm during our November week. The back door enters into the downstairs utility room which is handy for drying down/cleaning pets (or children!) and storing outside footwear and clothing before entering the rest of the house.
Rye is very close with the station within 10 minutes drive (handy for guests needing a convenient train journey from London). The annual Firework night and bonfire parade is very impressive with marchers in the torch procession in costume and a fantastic firework display after. Rye and the surrounding area has plenty of restaurants and pubs. We had a very enjoyable week visiting the local area. Christopher was helpful with the booking process and was at hand if we needed anything during our stay but equally although his office was just down the road he left us to our own devices. Our second stay but hopefully not our last.
