Full Description


Connetts 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.
The cottages have been created within two old barns to provide good quality self-contained accommodation.

The cottages have spacious gardens where guests can relax, sunbathe or have a barbecue. Around the farm guests will see a whole host of wildlife. Wild ducks fly into the ponds and there are many rabbits, pheasants and other wild animals and birds to be seen.
If you would like to go fishing while staying with us we have a small lake containing various coarse fish that is available for guests free of charge. Good sea fishing can also be found at Minster Lees and other beaches within 10 minutes of the farm.
