PostSubject: DARLING BUDS OF MAY FANTASTIC NEW BUSINESS & SITE   Fri May 24, 2013 4:58 am

Hello everyone
Exciting news!!!
The darling buds of may farm has now become a fantastic venue for weddings, special events & even holidays.

The farm is now owned by internet entrepreneur Simon Coulson.
He has submitted a planning application to Ashford Borough Council to renovate three buildings and turn them into holiday lets, including the main farmhouse, which is Grade II listed.


Other buildings would be demolished, to tidy up the site, or renovated.

A new barn would be built for more holiday accommodation and a barn converted into a home.

Mr Coulson envisages creating seven full-time jobs plus another 30 part-time for special events such as the classic car show.

Here's the link to the great new website http://www.darlingbudsfarm.co.uk/

Have a look and sign up for the newsletter.

p.s. limited camping facilities available at the moment so please form an orderly queue behind Roger LaughingWink

All the best Tony

I read this earlier Tony!
Have you seen the price of camping at the car show? £75 for a small plot!!! I am alright thanks.

Good to know the future of the show/site is safe!

No I haven't, £75 is outrageous, however there is limited availability and although I'm not usually a betting man I'd put a tenner on there being a plot sell out before the day of the show. Wink
(remember stickers)scratch

where did you see/get that price from?

regards Tony

£75

Cheaper to drive home and back, even at 200 miles round trip.

Not boding well, sounds like someone is going to use the name to try and make a quick buck.

I know a venue in Lincolnshire that rides on the history of the house and grounds, they charge £120 Per person per night for B&B, and not the cleanest by all account hence only three stars.

There's no prices on their website quoting £75.
Lee is going to try and find where/who he got this price from, but my point is this farm could have become a private home, no more car show...... you know where i'm going.
We know how much the farm sold for and looking at the work he intends to carry out, there's a substantial amount of further investment going into the property.
My focus is in what the business is offering, I hope he does very well, we benefit if the car show goes ahead.
Also there's a possibility of more events taking place.

What ever the cost/price for camping, it will fall inside some people's budgets.

All the best Tony

Still not at a computer.

Just had a look, seems they have removed the camping part from the website... Maybe they are intercepting mine and Jons texts about it haha.

Be interested to see whether it re-appears!
