Welcome to Great Prawls Farm

Great Prawls Farm is an exceptionally pretty sheep farm in an area of outstanding natural beauty high on the former sea cliffs of the 'Isle of Oxney' with extensive views and sunsets. It straddles the sunny south-east borders of Kent and Sussex so there are many places to visit in either direction with Gardens and National Trust properties in plentiful supply.

The medieval towns of Rye and Tenterden are ten minutes drive and the sandy beaches of Camber just 15 minutes.The minature steam train of Romney Marsh runs to Dungeness Lighthouse for a climb and the Tenterden Steam train to Bodiam Castle for a picnic..

The cottages have extensive views with peace and tranquillity. Watch the sunset over the valley  or the birds soaring with a glass of wine and a good book and just unwind. Both cottages are 4 star E.T.B and very comfortable to ensure a relaxing holiday.

We work in partnership with Kent Wildlife Trust & Natural England to improve our environment and there are wildlife and birds to be seen on the farm with self - guide walks available.

Our holiday cottages have been a farming family business since 1978 and you are assured of our personal supervision.

So much to do, straddled as we are on the Kent/ Sussex border in either direction, and so little time. Perhaps that's why our holiday visitors keep coming back!

After all that, maybe some much needed rest and relaxation, swims on the sandy beach at Camber, bargain hunting amongst the antique shops in Medieval Rye or Tenterden. Perhaps a cream tea or lunch out at one of the excellent village pubs in the locality.

Many young lambs and wildlife to watch on our own farm trails exclusive to our guests.


Where we are

We are located near the village of Stone in Oxney, in between Rye in East Sussex and Tenterden in Kent. The farm is a 20 minute drive from Ashford, where links to the M20 motorway, Eurostar, Channel Tunnel or Dover Ferry Terminal, can be found. From Ashford, the fast train to London St.Pancras takes just 38 mins, for a day out exploring the capital.

Close to everywhere but away from it all, Great Prawls Farm is the perfect base from which to explore Kent or East Sussex, or just rest, relax and unwind.
