“Wish I'd had longer”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Fantastic really open and also wooded scenery, the ponies and cattle getting on with life by the roadside and beyond, lovely lanes and fords, lots of places to park and walk or cycle - I just didn't have enough time - but must be back for another visit!
There were loads of marked cycle paths where I walked and even accidentally disturbed a nesting nightjar - quite the most magic moment ever!
Absolutely beautiful!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Loved the free roaming animals...pigs, sheep, horses, peacocks, chickens, donkeys...cycled every day after our daytime outings to the seaside or local attractions and went out for an evening walk to see the animals making their way back for the night. Very relaxing.
