We have a small selection of farm animals:- Rare Breed sheep and pigs and a friendly horse called Turner. At different times of the year there can be piglets!
We are happy for you to bring your dog and do not charge extra. We do not restrict the number of dogs and they are allowed to be in the cottage without you. There are plenty of places for walking where the dog can be off the lead. They will also be able to play with our labradors and jack russell!
It is an ideal place for relaxing in peace and quiet or gentle and energetic walking. Children can roam wherever exploring the two streams and many small woods we have. They can also bring a tent if they would like to try camping.
