Roundoak Farm: North Ronaldsay Ram, part of the collection of rare breeds at the farm

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: arrange a trip here forthwith.

Run by Ruth and Norman, Roundoak is mostly grassland 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 the chickens, chicks, turkeys and ducks that wander the farm freely. Home produce is always available and includes eggs as well as 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 also 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 that this is an adults-only peaceful retreat site, where music and ball games are not allowed. This may not suit everyone, so please consider this before booking.

Please note

The shower facilities are closed. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The toilet facilities are closed. Guests will need to use their own facilities.

    Early part of season so can’t really complain about anything , it is quite rural and have to drive most places , even to the pub .
    Animals nice to see up close and running round

From the manager...

Sorry we did not get our usual 10/10
First time we have had such a comment about our fairly rural location
That is the whole idea concept of the CL at Roundoak rare breeds farm in this wonderful part of Kent
Surely this should have been researched before booking onto this type of site
You can walk to the pubs in Sutton valence village as many of our visitors did over the bank holiday
Although the pubs in the village aren’t brilliant the walk to them and the village itself is very pleasant

Directions

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 the 10-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.

Must see

  • Leeds Castle (3.5 miles)
  • Sissinghurst Castle Garden (5.9 miles)
  • Kent & East Sussex Railway (9.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Stoneacre (3.8 miles)
