About Fair Oak Farm Country Estate

About Fair Oak Farm

Exclusive hire of your own private country estate, only one hour from central London.

The multi-award-wining property is ideal for hosting a retreat, business group or gathering of family and friends.

Fair Oak Farm offers a unique, stylish collection of boutique, self-catering accommodation and facilities, set amongst glorious Sussex countryside on a twelve-acre private country estate, located in the High Weald, designated a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It's hard to imagine a nicer country retreat to gather a large group of people. A place that not only provides plenty of space to relax and unwind together, but also offers accommodation for those who like having their own personal space and privacy. From the moment you arrive along the sweeping gravel drive past the beautifully maintained gardens, you are sure to be enchanted.

Location & Local Area

Fair Oak Farm is easily accessible by train from central London within an hour (Stonegate train station is just two miles away) and is only 45 mins from Gatwick airport.

The farm sits in a picturesque, wooded valley near Mayfield village, nine miles from Tunbridge Wells close to the Sussex / Kent border and only 25 minutes from the South Coast. The surrounding area is peppered with pretty villages with ancient churches and welcoming country inns, as well as some of the country's most spectacular castles, country houses and gardens.
