Oxney Organic Estate has three barns available for guests on holiday or short breaks. The barns are based on the Isle of Oxney at Stone Cum Ebony. The Old Barn sleep six, The Long Barn and The Little Barn each sleep four.
We have three converted barns at Odiam Farm at Stone Cum Ebony between Tenterden and Rye, and two shepherds huts located in the vineyard at Beckley north of Rye. The land and farms are steeped in history, one even appears in the Doomsday Book.
The barns at Odiam Farm are surrounded by the Grade II listed farmhouse to the west, our fields to the north and south, and the farm yard with our old style Dutch barn to the east.
Restoring the barns we have aimed for a light, informal and relaxing approach. The style is a mix of modern and old, oak, coir and painted floors, greys and naturals. We have opted for organic mattresses by Abaca for most of the beds and have made headboards and other fittings from our own oak milled on the farm. Each barn has its own outside space with lawn, patio and traditional outdoor seating made from local coppiced chestnut. There is no gate as you drive in to the barns so not suitable for unsupervised roaming toddlers.
The shepherds huts at the vineyard in Beckley are located in a small paddock facing Block Hunt and Block Dobson. We have used recycled materials and oak and created two luxurious shepherds huts. Lovely calm and relaxing design. You are guaranteed peace and quiet and to be immersed in the English wine revolution!
The water, electricity and heating is 100% renewable. Our wood chip boiler heats the water and the radiators in the barns and for all our houses we buy our electricity from Good Energy (and generate some with our solar panels too!). All our farmland is organic certified by the Soil Association and as a result we’re surrounded by birds, wild flowers and wildlife.
