This secluded, hideaway site, is set within 2 acres of mature gardens and woodland, including a woodland walk and an area for dog walking. There is plenty of room for picnics and barbeques. In the next field lies a biological heritage site with its wealth of wildlife. Bird watching is a major attraction of the area.
Animals graze on 17 acres of the farm, it is an SSSI site where there are many different wildflowers and grasses that grow in the hay meadows, so it is a haven for wildflowers.
