Tillingham is set amongst 70 acres of rolling hills and woodlands with far reaching views along the Tillingham River valley and across to the fortified, hill top town of Rye, East Sussex, to the sea and the Romney salt marshes beyond.
This mixed farm, which dates from the 13th century, is home to vineyards, fruit trees, ancient woodland and livestock. The recently renovated farmstead provides a place for visitors to stay and enjoy the produce of the farm and the local area.
The philosophy at Tillingham would be best summarised as progressive: incorporating what they know of the best scientific and technological knowledge available, whilst championing ancient traditions and best practice learnt from millennia of farming and winemaking.
Tillingham are committed to farming in a diverse, poly-cultural way; they believe this is not only a highly sustainable approach, but in conjunction with biodynamics, aims to restore soils to an optimum level of organic matter and microbial and wider ecological diversity.
