Little Gate Farm

Our head office and training centre is at:

Little Gate Farm
Horseshoe Lane
East Sussex

On arrival at Little Gate Farm

Please let us know if you are planning to visit the farm so we can make arrangements. Unexpected visits can cause disruption to the training planned for the day.

Due to our rather tight entrance and narrow lanes, we cannot take 50 seat coaches. Minibuses and small coaches can turn and park in the farm’s car park.

Please remember that this is a working farm and dress appropriately (if it’s wet you may need wellies!).
