The farm consists of pasture, some ancient woodland (designated a Devon Wildlife Site) and a wildlife pond.
We have a flock of Dorset Down sheep and a herd of Ruby Devon cattle along with a selection of rare breeds of pigs. You are free to walk around the fields. There is no footpath system so you will be walking in some places on an uneven surface that may be muddy.

Please confirm with us the location of the bull before entering the fields and ensure that any gate that has been opened is shut carefully behind you.
