My Husband and I had a really lovely time at North Buckharm farm. The shepherds hut was brilliant , clean, comfortable. wood burning stove, the sounds of the animals and great hosts made it a really relaxing and enjoyable weekend. It was also so lovely to have a bath whilst looking out on to the countryside and hearing all the animals. Definetly hope to come back soon!!
We went to see the badgers which was superb, practising being quiet was difficult :) but very worth it to see them all in their natural habitat plus they all came out within half an hour. Definitely recommend you don't miss out on this.
Trish and her family made us feel very at home, the cooked breakfast was the best we've ever had . They had good local knowledge and were animal and guest focused.
All in all a great weekend, thank you :)
