We go here most years to see the lambs being born. There's not a huge amount to do, watch the Lambs and cows, have a tractor ride and enjoy tea in the cafe. I really like it here.

We've visited during the lambing season. Lots of sheep to see, and we also took the tractor ride up to the hill as well. Pretty much what would you expect from a farm. The staff was very nice.
