Farm is a 100 acre (40 Hectare) working farm, owned over four
generations by our family. It is situated in a coastal position
giving cliff top views over the Thames Estuary. Oilseed rape, field
beans, linseed and cereal crops are grown in rotation with small
meadows for grazing and 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 Elmley Marshes Nature Reserve, run by Elmley Conservation Trust, where many species of
birds may be seen, both common and rare. Among those found on the
reserve are populations of Harriers, Golden Plover,
Short-Eared Owls, Avocet, Egret, Heron, Green Plover and at dawn and dusk
spectacular amounts of wildfowl.
