Welcome to Orlestone Farm!

Orlestone is a secret haven -  a sanctuary in the Kent countryside for tortoises in need of some TLC and a new life.

The farm is also the perfect place for your tortoise to stay whilst you go on holiday & hibernate under veterinary care.   

Our vet Dr Emily runs educational seminars for owners & fellow veterinary professionals, along side research projects into the health of tortoises
