General

  • A working rare-breed farm in the Kent countryside
  • Highland and Sussex cattle, Hebridean, Ronaldsay and Boreray sheep
  • Buy fresh farm produce for the barbecue

An hour from London but deep in countryside on the southerly slopes of the Greensand Ridge overlooking the Weald of Kent, Roundoak Farm has warm welcomes, its own produce for sale, and lots of farming activity to see throughout the year.

Run by Ruth and Norman, Roundoak is a mostly grassland farm with five acres of natural oak woodland at Sutton Valence and a further 50 acres a mile or so away in Ulcombe, and is a working farm breeding Hebridean sheep and Highland cows. Well-behaved dogs are welcome if kept on leads.

Guests are welcome to wander the farmyard by arrangement: depending on the time of year, you could see lambs, pigs, piglets, cows and calves as well as chicken, chicks, turkeys and ducks that wander the farm freely. Home produce is always available and includes eggs, meat including pork sausages, bacon, lamb and beef; bed throws, wool and branded Roundoak clothing are also available to buy.

The site is clean and level with mowed grass and generously-sized pitches, all facing south. WC and shower facilities are available for a small additional charge.

There's a five-acre oak woodland with wooded walk open to guests, which has a large barbecue area available by arrangement.

The site has secure coded access gates and security cameras.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

This is an adults-only site. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

A small charge of £2.50 per night per person applies for the use of shower and shared facilities.

From the manager...

Many thanks for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed the Farm animals and the campsite generally. We were very sorry to see that you were disappointed with the level of customer service that you received. You advised us that you were unhappy with your original pitch, and as soon as we were made aware of this we offered you another one, which you accepted. I understand that specifically you were unhappy with the fact that we only accept cheques or cash, however we had hoped that we had been helpful by offering you our BACS details. We do advertise accepted payment methods on our listings and hope that this will help to clarify this.

Directions


It is advisable not to rely on satnavs. Take junction 8 off the M20 Motorway and follow the signs to Leeds Castle. Pass the castle's main entrance and continue through the village of Leeds and through the village of Langley. At the cross roads by the Plough PH and Youngs car sales, turn left towards Sutton Valence and Headcorn.

Continue through Sutton Valence down the steep hill. At the bottom of the hill just before the petrol station and car sales, turn left into Heniker Lane. Continue down this winding lane to the T junction. Turn right passing a row of cottages. After a short distance there are a large set of brown gates, this is Roundoak farm. There is a security pad to the left of the gates. If you do not have the code call the farm using the contact details provided in your confirmation email.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Stick close to Kent or wander as far as France from Roundoak Farm: the likes of Leeds, Sissinghurst and Hever castles, Whitstable, Tunbridge Wells and Canterbury are all easy to get to, or you could motor along to Dover and get the ferry for a day trip to France. The local station is Headcorn two miles away; from there, you can be at Charing Cross in central London in about an hour.

Kentish vineyards are at Tenterden, Biddenden and Hush Heath – bring a bottle back to have with the barbie later – and another good and green local option is Bedgebury National Pinetum, a recreational and conservational arboretum with tree-lined paths for walking and cycling.

The Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway runs for almost 14 miles from Hythe to Dungeness and the Kent & East Sussex Railway can be hailed at Tenterden for a ten and a half mile journey to Bodiam Castle.

For old houses, have a day at Penshurst Place & Gardens, the fortified manor house with adventure playground, summer maze and regular events, and at Ightham Mote, the medieval manor house near Sevenoaks that's now managed by the National Trust.

The Chatham Historic Dockyard is also well worth a look, and if you're around the coast you should also see Rye and Hastings: cliff railways at the latter very much a must.
