The Owner Says
Canvas Lodge with Farmhouse Shower:
We believe in simplicity, but rest assured you will not be sacrificing luxury when staying in our canvas lodges. At 45m2, our spacious lodges are placed in stunning locations and will meet your need for modern comfort and craving to be close to nature. The Canvas Lodge is suitable for 6 people, 5 adults and 1 child up to 12 years old. Our interior features a fully equipped kitchen with a wood-stove, a living/dining area, outdoor area with BBQ, and three sleeping areas with high-quality mattresses, pillows, bedding and fluffy duvets!
The Farmhouse Shower:
Most of our communal showers on the farm integrate perfectly with the farmhouse. What once used to be materials used for farm life, have now been upcycled to our rustic style communal showers. At some farms, drinking troughs serves as a sink, stable doors are now used for the shower doors and the hay racks are used to hang your towels. Know that you will always be able to shower with warm water where electricity is also available to blow-dry your hair. In each of the farm, the farmers have showed their originality by creating unique showers in the spirit of Feather Down.
We are all about getting back to the simpler times away from technology and to reconnect with nature and therefore do not have electricity and wi-fi in any of our farms.
Experience the Feather Down Feeling:
At Feather Down you will get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the simpler times away from technology, getting the family together to reconnect with nature. Enjoy the rhythm of the day as your life in the countryside will be guided by nature. Wake up to the sound of the farm animals, collect eggs in the afternoon, dip into our hot tub, and end the day sharing your farm stories by the candlelights or outside by the campfire while roasting marshmallows. A laid back quality time and a true digital detox for everyone!

About Lunsford Farm
Glampers – yes. Big groups and single-sex groups – by arrangement only. Campers, campervans, motorhomes, caravans, dogs – no.
There are plenty of walking trails and activities within minutes of Lunsford Farm – Andrew has a wealth of local knowledge and will be happy to point you in the right direction. A good starting point is the Pannel Valley Nature Reserve (adjacent to the farm), which has three public bird hides. It's a 10-minute walk to the nearest shingle beach at Pett Level. A 15-minute drive west of the farm is the medieval town of Rye. Wander down the cobbled streets around Mermaid Street, leisurely stopping off at cafés and antique shops along the way. Nearby is the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve too. It's another tranquil place, so adrenalin-seeking campers should head a little further to Camber Sands; its seven-mile stretch of sandy beach attracts the windsurfing and kitesurfing community. The shingle expanse at Dungeness, with its RSPB Reserve (01797 320588), lighthouse and station on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway (01797 362353) in the shadow of a nuclear power station is also worth a visit. A 20-minute drive east takes you to Battle, which took its name from the 1066 Battle of Hastings. You can explore the atmospheric battle field, abbey ruins and stand on the very spot where King Harold is said to have died
Food & Drink
There's a well-stocked honesty shop onsite, selling a variety of free-range meats, bread, local ice-cream and fresh eggs and you can collect eggs from a CoOp on site too. If venturing elsewhere, the village is home to two local pubs, both just a short walk/bike ride away and serving great food: The Royal Oak (01424 812515) and the Two Sawyers (01424 812 255). Nearby Hastings has grown more cosmopolitan over recent years, and is now home to a vibrant selection of eateries: Bullet (01424 717477) is a relaxed (vegetarian-friendly) café, while The Old Market (01424 547297) satisfies big appetites with its inventive menu of gourmet burgers. Di Polas (01424 203666) on the seafront dishes up some of the best ice cream in the area and there are plenty of shops and supermarkets if you need to stock up on supplies. There's fresh fish for sale in Hastings, Rye and Dungeness too.

On approaching Hastings, go under the bridge and take first right up the slip road, then turn right at the T-junction onto The Ridge. Continue on this road until signposts for Rye and Folkestone, then left turn onto A259. Continue for about a mile, then turn right at the Beefeater pub, towards Pett. Lunsford Farm is just past the Royal Oak pub, on the left.
Exit the M20 at junction 10 and follow the signs for Brenzett and Hamstreet. Take the second exit at the roundabout and continue straight ahead for eight miles. At the roundabout, take the second exit towards Rye. On approaching Rye, take the first exit on each mini roundabout, heading towards Hastings on the A259. Continue on this road, then left turn towards Winchelsea Beach. Continue on this road for four miles until you enter Pett Level. Take right turn signposted Pett Village.

The closest train station is at Three Oaks, just four miles from Lunsford Farm. From here a taxi would be necessary and would need to be booked in advance. Bigger stations are at Hastings and Rye. From London, Rye is the better option but onwards bus connections from Hastings to Pett tend to be quicker and more frequent. There's a bus stop a short walk from site. Alternatively, take a taxi for the last six miles to Lunsford from either station.
