Part of the hugely successful Feather Down Farms concept, Lunsford Farm is camping for those who like their creature comforts – rustic decor and outdoor living but with comfy bedding and all mod cons thrown in including a hob, wood burner and coffee grinder. Feather Down takes pride in the details, making sure you always get a jaw-dropping view, the eggs are always ready to be collected from the chicken coop; and fresh bacon and milk is only a larder trip away. This leaves you more time to concentrate on enjoying yourself and making the most of your surroundings. You don't need a tent, as they come pre-erected, fully furnished and look somewhat close to a rural pop up palace. Feather Down use redundant land from farmers, build the tents, and then let the (more authentic) farmers look after you.
Staying at Lunsford Farm with its Romney ewes and mix-bred suckler cows really educates you and improves your knowledge of farming. Further exploration of the farm reveals some historic farm buildings, as well as several ponds. It's charming, and also only a ten-minute stroll from the beach. In the unlikely event that you tire of the jaw-aching views, the farm also makes an ideal base for a visit to the nearby cobbled streets of the ancient town of Rye, the seven miles of beach at Camber Sands, and the town of Winchelsea, with its variety of tours. There's also Hastings for a taste of the traditional British seaside holiday and your pick of of eclectic gift shops.
