Relaxation & Rejuvenation

​Set in the beautiful Kent countryside just 37 minutes from London, Green Farm provides a stress free haven, a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.

Be instantly transported into the calm and tranquility of our privately-run retreats combing the beauty & simplicity of our farm and natural setting with luxury accommodation in the immaculately restored 15th century farmhouse. Making your visit feel personal, intimate & completely unique. 

With an abundance of local wildlife set on the edge of ancient woodland, there is an opportunity to embrace nature. Make the weekend your own; come to rejuvenate, de-stress, clear your mind. Be as relaxed or active as you wish, read a book, take a bike ride,  go hiking or running.

Please see below for further details of the Weekend Retreats

Farm, Setting, Grounds & Woodlands

Green Farm is set at the gateway to 12,500 acres of ancient woodlands and Kent weald traditional meadows.  Perfect places to relax and unwind whether you are on your own or with the group. Take a picnic on the farm, get to know the animals, sit by the pond by the house or find yourself a quiet spot within the oak parkland or tranquil woodland areas. Take advantage of the many footpaths  & byway tracks through barely touched farmland routes, perfect for hiking, running, cycling for those wanting to be more active during your visit. Every season has a special feel, lambing in April, bluebells and the beautiful sound of the nightingales are magical in the early evening during April and May.

 

Green Farm is run as a small farm with an established vegetable garden which provides many of the ingredients for our home cooked tasty meals.

House & Accommodation

Green Farm House is the beautiful Grade 2 listed country home of MaryAnn and Martin Richmond-Coggan and their dogs.  Lovingly restored, it was originally a Kentish Hall House built 600 years ago - 50 years before Richard III was killed at the Battle of Bosworth.

 

The house is filled with character, with beautiful beams and many original features, each room is individual and inviting, with perfect places to read a book or simply unwind.  Our favourite places are the living room with its Inglenook fireplace, our dining room with its beautiful beams, the boot room with its well still in use today and the conservatory with the beautiful views across the orchard and fields.  The conservatory now has a log burning stove for the cozy winter months.

Every bedroom is unique with luxury king size beds and loos (except ‘the village view’ with a double), Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy pillows and soft white dressing gowns. All our rooms have loos and basins, the ‘chestnut’ and the ‘tee-total’ rooms have en suite bathrooms.

All rooms and bathrooms are serviced daily during the retreat.

Farm Spa

Green Farm Private Spa is created for you to relax, unwind and be pampered.  We are delighted to be partnered with the fabulous ESPA with world class treatments.   The Spa has been designed with the nature in mind to the highest quality of craftsmanship.

You can relax in the hot tub in the tranquil setting of our walled garden or on the pond overlooking the fields, unwind in the sauna or warm yourself by the log fire.

Food

At Green Farm we have a very simple philosophy around eating healthily - cook fresh, home-produce when possible, minimum processed foods, served as nature intended. We like to cook 'in season' as much as possible with as much coming from the Green Farm Wildlife Vegetable Garden as possible and, of course, from our own farm animals.

 

We are also proud to be accredited members of 'Produced in Kent'. We ask that you advise us of any special dietary requirements so that we can cater for any special dietary needs.

We are guided by our in-house Nutritional Therapist & Naturopath Alice Yeates to ensure our meals are nutritious and balanced.

"I never knew that healthy food could taste so good"

Wellness-Sing with Nightingales Retreat

A magical weekend at Green Farm, where you’ll have the chance to “find your voice” through a series of small group singing workshops, to relax in the spa, to reconnect with the natural world, and to experience the beautiful song of the nightingales through a special guided nighttime walk.


The aim of Wellness-Sing retreats is to introduce a variety of vocal techniques to singers of all abilities, with the aim of discovering just how beneficial singing can be to our general wellbeing. We'll be experimenting with our voices, learning more about what they can do and how we can use them through a mixture of vocal warm-ups and singing games. We'll learn new songs in parts and perform together, singing in harmony in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.


After a day of vocal workshops, we’ll take our voices to the woods, singing around a campfire supper, and then venture on a guided late-night woodland walk to listen to the beautiful songs of the nightingales. Over the course of the weekend, there will also be time for relaxing in the on-site spa, optional yoga/sound healing classes, and connecting with each other over communal meals based around local ingredients from the Kent countryside. Whatever your musical background – if you are curious about the many wellness benefits that group singing can have, this retreat is for you!

What's included:
  • Check in from 5.30pm Friday, check out Sunday afternoon – early arrivals & late departures available on request

  • Two singing sessions

  • One yoga/sound therapy session

  • Campfire supper with singing and storytelling
