We offer accommodation to our guests at The Curlew and The Small Holding at May Farm, a beautifully appointed self-catered three-bedroom barn in the blissful solitude of 40 acres of farm and woodland.
Once an ancient farm building, May Farm has been converted into a self-catered, homely space sleeping up to six guests. May Farm retains the charm of the original threshing barn with wooden timbers and exposed brick walls while catering for the comfort of modern living with a log burner, Egyptian Cotton bedsheets, underfloor heating, gun and boot room and a large, high-spec kitchen and long oak dining table. Dogs and muddy boots are welcome.
THE SMALL HOLDING
Eight miles from The Curlew is The Small Holding, a kitchen and farm in Kilndown on the Kent and East Sussex borders. Offering Full Acre and Half Acre tasting menus, our 26-cover restaurant is set in one acre of land, giving us a unique connection between farm and table. Growing, foraging and cooking the best ingredients is at the core of The Small Holding, with daily changing menus, using home-reared and home-grown ingredients from the farm, which is less than 10ft from the kitchen. Much of the produce used at The Curlew comes from The Small Holding farm.
A group of folk growing amazing things, then pulling them out of the ground, sometimes knobbly and lumpy, then cooking and serving them. It’s perfectly imperfect and I wouldn’t change a thing.
