This is a working family farm, which was bought by the family in 1900.
Livestock includes sheep, pigs, free range hens and a fold of highland cattle, not forgetting Nell, our sheep dog.
We are also part of a conservation scheme, with plantings of oak trees and wildflower meadows.
We have discovered rare orchids and other species of wild flowers, since we excluded sheep from our woods.
Throughout we have created wheelchair accessible footpaths and picnic sites in woodland, meadow and stream side areas, so that all the family can enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside.
The area is rich in wildlife including deer, rabbits and other small animals, also a wide variety of birds and wild flowers.
The sea is just 7 miles away.
A safe place for children to play.
