Use our lovely beach or simply relax in this peaceful, tranquil setting.
Children are welcome and so are dogs & many other pets (excluding cats). We have regular animal feeding & handling sessions for visitors who wish to join in. This usually includes the sheep (lambs in spring, usually with one or two being bottle fed), tame goats, alpacas, pigs, turkeys, chickens, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs!
