Buss Farm Oast Ref: PSSA

Darling Buds Farm, or Buss Farm, is set in the beautiful Kent countryside, between the villages of Pluckley and Bethersden. This typical Kentish oasthouse is situated on the owner’s farm, which consists of a courtyard of buildings. There are a collection of other farm buildings all set in 35 acres of land, with footpaths from the doorstep that guests have access to, and paddocks in which to play a game of cricket or rounders. A stream winds its way between nine large ponds through the farmland. The farm became internationally famous for being the set for the TV series ‘The Darling Buds of May’ (1991-1993). It was home to Pop Larkin (David Jason), Ma Larkin (Pam Ferris), Mariette (Catherine Zeta Jones) and Charley (Philip Franks). 300 girls auditioned for the part of Mariette before Catherine Zeta Jones was found, and the series launched her career! At the time, the TV show was the most popular show on British TV, and the simple lifestyle set in the 1950’s showcased the beautiful Kent countryside. The title for the series comes from Shakespeare’s ‘Sonnet 18’. The oast provides stylish holiday accommodation with en-suite facilities to all four bedrooms. Guests won’t want to leave the farm, which also hosts a classic car show each year, but Kent has so much to offer, including the reindeer centre next door! Tenterden, the ‘Jewel of the Weald’, vineyards including Biddenden, the South of England Rare Breeds Centre, the Kent and Sussex steam railway, gardens including Sissinghurst, and a plethora of National Trust homes and castles are waiting to be explored. Take the high speed javelin train and be in London in 38 minutes, or for further sightseeing opportunities, bring the passport and have lunch in Paris via the Eurostar! Beach 18 miles.
