Five birdwatching holiday cottages on a 100 acre working farm

Connetts Farm Holiday Cottages

Full Description


Connetts Farm is a 100 acre (40 Hectare) working farm,owned by our family for over 4 generations. It is situated in a coastal position giving cliff top views over the Thames Estuary. Mainly a grass farm now with meadows for grazing and making hay. There is also a 6 acre area of woodland that we have planted to provide a more varied habitat for wildlife and to produce timber for harvesting in the future.
For visits to London (50 miles), Canterbury (30 miles), Rochester (20 Miles) & Maidstone (20 miles), there are good road links to the motorway system with a new bridge linking us to the mainland. There is also a mainline railway from Sittingbourne (10 miles) to the centre of London with a connecting line from Sheerness.
The nearest town is Sheerness (6 miles) where there is a selection of shops & good supermarkets, an indoor swimming pool and a sports complex. There are beaches at Minster Lees, Sheerness and Shellness with certain areas being very good for fishing.
For bird watching or just an enjoyable walk in the countryside, you may wish to visit the Swale National Nature Reserve at Shellness or Elmley National Nature Reserve, where many species of birds may be seen both common and rare. Among those found on the reserve are populations of Harriers, Peregrine Falcon, Golden Plover, Short-Eared Owls, Avocet, Egret, Heron, Green Plover and at dawn and dusk spectacular amounts of wildfowl.
The cottages have been created within two old barns to provide good quality self-contained accommodation.
