This is a full-time working farm with sheep and cows grazing peacefully in the valleys, whilst pheasants are reared for the private family shoot, and horses and ponies thrive.
The lakes are surrounded by thick woodlands which support a shy roe-deer population together with otters, rabbits, foxes, badgers, roedeer and many other woodland creatures; this place also incorporates a vast bird population of birds and ducks including snipe and kingfishers.
The bird life in the garden alone is abundant since there are no cats here and the magpie population is carefully controlled.
Walks and rides over the farm are totally walker/rider-friendly with hardly any gates to open during a 1hr ride. There is a glorious mixture of open pasture, gentle hills, farm tracks, old carriage drives, woodland paths, and quiet country lanes with beautiful views.
