The Canvas Lodge at Lunsford Farm is one of the tents that are located on this working farm found within the Romney Marsh of East Sussex. The tents are found on a copse, a stretch of higher ground that provides for fantastic sea views of the Old Saxon shoreline of Sussex.
The farm is part of the Higher Level Environmental Stewardship Scheme. Along with rearing and caring for the livestock, potatoes are grown and free-range ducks and chickens kept. The farm shop stocks everything you need for the perfect full English breakfast as well as succulent BBQ meats, bacon, sausages, eggs, bread, milk, and butter. Lunsford lamb is available on request.
Any stay includes a tour of this working farm, which will introduce guests to the Romney ewes, and the crossbred cows and calves. There is also Bertie the Aberdeen Angus bull and some beautiful original farm buildings. Guests can also spot water voles at any of the several ponds. Unfortunately, pets cannot be accommodated at the farm.
The Canvas Lodge has a double bed, a bunk bed, and a single bed, sleeping a maximum of six guests. There is a flushing toilet, deck chairs, an outdoor cooker, an extended canopy for the covered veranda, and cold running water. The lodge comes with a starter pack made up of wood for heating and cooking, starter pack candles, and lamp oil. Kitchen linen is provided and there is ample parking space.
The beach is a ten-minute walk from the farm and guests can follow a pathway that takes them through meadows, and a marshland of rare and endangered species. The Old Saxon shoreline of Sussex is a great place to explore and the royal Military Canal dug to repel Napoleon 200 years ago is nearby.
