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

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

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

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

Between 01 October - 30 April, electricity is metered on site at £0.14 per kWh and must be paid at check-out. At all other times it is free-of-charge.

    Everything... it was peaceful, beautiful, interesting. The owners were so welcoming they felt more like hosts. They are (rightly) very proud of what they have achieved at Roundoak Farm & were kind enough to give us a (socially distanced) tour of the farm & all the fascinating rare and old breeds; we even met a calf that was less than an hour old. I don't want to praise it too highly or it'll become too busy & we want to keep it all to ourselves! Thanks for an incredible stay, we will definitely be back.

    Only one comment, understandably the facilities were closed due to covid, however there was no reduction in cost per night, however this would not stop us returning to stay again

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments. It has been a really difficult year, we looked very carefully at our pricing structure and decided to keep our facilities closed to the public for safety, especially as they were being used by the electric key workers using the site as a base for essential works to the national grid.
We have lost substantial income from tourism and decided to put our prices up this season to try and cover our losses.
we had decided that if we could not make it worth our while we would simply close for the rest of the season.
Our prices are clearly shown on our many portals and we make it absolutely clear that our facilities are currently closed.
We trust you understand.
Thank you for your positive comments about the farm.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Roundoak Farm. On our arrival we were greeted by Ruth who showed us where everything was and also told us about the woodland walk and that we could also walk around a large field where we would be able to see the rare breed cattle they have there. We took advantage of this and spent some in the wood. It was a nice peaceful site which we like and we would be happy to stay there again in the future.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing I would say I disliked was the really narrow lane which led to the farm from the main road.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comments.
Sorry I cannot do anything about the lane. We are in a rural spot thats what makes it quiet and peaceful.
At least when you got to us you enjoyed it.
Thanks

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 (5.7 kilometres)
  • Sissinghurst Castle Garden (9.5 kilometres)
  • Kent & East Sussex Railway (15.5 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Stoneacre (6.1 kilometres)
