the farm

Broxhall Farm is situated down a quiet country lane surrounded by blissful countryside and quaint traditional farm buildings rich in natural character and history.

 

Broxhall Farm is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on natural chalk grassland, grazed by our own cattle which are Aberdeen Angus and local Sussex breeds. The farm is carefully managed as part of a countryside stewardship scheme which promotes local wildlife species and sustainable farming. During your stay you may be lucky enough to hear and spot owls, hares and pheasants and whilst you wonder along our footpaths you can discover natural grasses, wild orchids, cowslips and butterflies. 

 

The farm has been in the Sole family for 80 years.

FROM TINY ACORNS, GREAT OAKS WILL GROW

BUILDING THE HERDSMAN'S HUT

1/1

In 2016 Tom decided to build The Herdsman's hut as a farm diversification project. The vision was to make a unique tiny house which featured a beautiful exposed oak frame- a work of art in itself, and which also made the most of the spectacular views and countryside. 

The frame was built by hand without the use of any power tools and was mounted on wheels which came from a cargo dolly from Kent International airport when it closed down. The slate roof came from a Victorian property in Canterbury, and a decking area was built. The frame has been situated in an extremely private and secluded area of the farm, close to our duck pond with panoramic, uninterrupted views. We hope you enjoy the small but perfectly formed Herdsman's Hut and your peaceful surroundings.
