Our animals

Guests at the farmstay can enjoy lots of cute and friendly farm animals around – Alpacas, cows, chickens, horses, ducks and the cat. All of them have a story and many of them are rescues. You are invited to join in at feeding times or to have a pat. You can also enjoy some of the free range eggs for breakfast on the weekend if the “girls” have been laying.
