Outdoor things to do on the Farm

There are lots of outdoor things to do on the farm, as well as petting the Boer goats and lambs, so make sure you bring bikes, outdoor gear and fishing kit. You can even spend a night out under the stars if you like wildcamping. Alternatively, wander through the tranquil areas of the farm, explore the riverside, woodlands and wetlands where you can see birds and wildlife making their homes in our conservation areas and our private nature reserve.
