Connetts Farm is a
100 acre (40 Hectare) working farm, and is situated in a coastal
position giving cliff top views over the Thames Estuary. There are
horses and sheep on the farm with hay and cereal crops being grown. There is also a small area of young
woodland that we have planted as part of a conservation scheme.
Additionally, each year some areas of the farm are left to grow wild
for the benefit of wildlife.
For visits to London (50 miles), Canterbury
(30 miles), Rochester (20 Miles) & Maidstone (20 miles), there
are good road links to the motorway system with a new
bridge linking us to the mainland. There is also a
mainline railway from Sittingbourne (10 miles) to the centre of
London with a connecting line from Sheerness.
The nearest town is Sheerness (6 miles) where there is a selection
of shops & good supermarkets, an indoor swimming pool and a sports
complex. There is a beach at Sheerness,
& a Naturist beach at Shellness (5 miles).
For bird watching, you may wish to
visit the R.S.P.B. reserve at nearby Elmley where many species of
birds may be seen, both common and rare. Among those found on the
reserve are populations of Harriers, Golden Plover,
Short-Eared Owls, Avocet, Egret, Heron, Green Plover and at dawn and dusk
spectacular amounts of wildfowl.
