Special to Curlew Cottage
We are a working farm with a herd of beef suckler cows and a flock of breeding sheep. The cows calve from March to May and the sheep lamb from mid April to mid May. We are happy to show our guests around the farm and we allow the children to help feed the pet lambs.
Short breaks available at any time of the year. Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday changeover available.
