STAY ON THE FARM
Definitely come again
We absolutely loved our visit to the farm, the boys had such a great time and made some lovely new friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed the whole day but they did especially enjoy playing with the grain, but also loved the fire and chopping logs. We would definitely love to come again and as frequently as you do it. Thanks… Read more “Definitely come again”
We loved it
Thank you so much for the farm visit on Friday: we loved it!
Learn so much more
“I find that the children always learn so much more when they are away from the classroom.” Mrs H, year 6 teacher
Please can I come back here tomorrow? Peter, aged 13
I’ve learnt more
I’ve learnt more today than I ever thought I was going to, and I’m the TA! Liz B, year 7 TA

I want to be a farmer
When I grow up, I want to be a farmer, and I want to work here. Ethan, aged 10
The tractors are so big
I had no idea the tractors were so big. Or so expensive! David, year 10 teacher

A brilliant, educational and worthwhile trip, everyone should do it: you won’t regret it! I wish there were more places like this. Thank you so much. Mr M, year 8 Geography teacher.
Best day ever
That was the best day ever! Amy, aged 5
Thanks again for sharing what you have with us. My children loved the walk in the fields, the grain barn and the picnic space (fire, wood chopping and garlic picking included!) I really think the informal way in which you and James interact with the children and adults is great. I’m sure each season has wonderful opportunities for learning something… Read more “Farm fun”
Dirty, tired, happy
We had a ball! Dirty, tired, happy kids = a great day. Thanks so much for the opportunity to escape to the countryside.
Maths in action
Thank you so much for a brilliant day yesterday! It was really lovely to meet you and we loved every minute of it. When we got home Max remembered that our group weighed 2.1 tonnes and wanted to know all about the .1 and how decimal numbers worked. He also wanted to know if he could move to the countryside… Read more “Maths in action”
Great time learning about farm life
Thank you for a fabulous day at the farm. It was very well organised, just as our previous visits have been. I was impressed by how much the children learnt, and the new experiences they gained. The children loved walking through the wheat and barley fields – some taller than them, seeing the sheep and their lambs, and having the… Read more “Great time learning about farm life”
Perfect little gem
A perfect little gem in a beautiful setting. So easy to relax when everything so thoughtfully provided.
A beautiful retreat with fixtures and fittings to a very high standard. Great little touches and thank you for the welcome food items. A really enjoyable time at The Nut Hatch.
We’ve stayed in many cottages / hotels in Kent over the years but The Nut Hatch has become our new favourite. Thank you so much for your hospitality and all the small touches that make a real difference e.g. the free range eggs from your chickens. We’ll definitely be back!
beautiful cottage in beautiful countryside
A beautiful cottage in beautiful countryside. The Nut Hatch had everything we needed for a perfect stay. We loved the décor and thoroughly enjoyed the baked goodies on arrival. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
Wonderful weekend in this lovely cottage
I’ve had a wonderful Easter weekend with glorious weather. Every conceivable thing has been provided in this lovely cottage. I’ve enjoyed going to Deal, Walmer and Sandwich and the Serpentine Walk. It’s been great to be in such stunning countryside.
What a gem!
What a gem! We have loved our stay at The Nut Hatch and could not have had a warmer welcome from Emma and James. Such a beautiful and relaxing spot. We have loved it. And thank you for all the wonderful food!
