Glamping at Lunsford Farm, Hastings, East Sussex with Featherdown Farms. For stunning sea views, the four tents are arranged in a copse on a stretch of higher ground that really makes the most of the glittering seascape. The beach is only a 10-minute walk away. On Lunsford Farm itself, the tour is not to be missed, featuring introductions to the Romney ewes and cross-bred cows and calves, and Bertie the Aberdeen Angus bull.
Walking to the beach, you’ll cross meadows and marshland full of rare and even endangered species; the old Saxon shoreline of Sussex; and the royal Military Canal, dug to repel Napoleon 200 years ago. Exploring the farm reveals some beautiful original farm buildings as well as the possible sight of a water vole at any of several ponds. As visitors have discovered to their delight, there is more to do every time in nature, simply with earth, water, wind and fire. Unfortunately, dogs and other pets can’t be accommodated at Lunsford Farm.
Along with rearing and caring for the livestock, potatoes are grown and free-range ducks and chickens kept. Conservation is high on the agenda and the farm has been accepted into the Higher Level Environmental Stewardship Scheme.
All you need for the perfect full English breakfast is on hand as well as succulent BBQ meats. Lunsford Lamb is also available on request. Bread, milk and butter are standard items in the Farm Larder along with bacon, sausages and eggs. If you have any special requirements let the farm know in advance and they will ensure that your needs are met.
