Rare Breeds Centre
Rare Breeds Centre is the only centre of its kind in Kent and is approved by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. Families, adults and groups can enjoy a perfect day out on our beautiful 100 acre farm based in the heart of the Kent countryside.
From our exotic butterfly tunnel to the delights of the Discovery Garden; through our woodland walks to the edge of the Secret Lake, we offer something for everyone. Or why not try one of our Falconry experiences for a gift with a difference
There are lots of animals to meet and pet and fun things to do for children including two play parks, a tube maze and indoor soft play barn. We also hold falconry displays, pig racing and many special events throughout the year.
Adults might like to browse our Rare Breeds Plants and Produce shop where plants and produce grown on the farm can be purchased.
Our Granary Restaurant is open every day (except Mondays in the Winter months) offering tasty, freshly cooked food at great prices. We have a lovely patio with a sandpit and paddling pool (in season), where the kids can let off steam whilst you eat. You can visit the restaurant or Rare Breeds Plants and Produce shop without entering the farm.
