There are also lots of smaller, friendly animals, cheeky little creatures that are always inquisitive to see what’s going on.
If you or a small person want to feed the pigs, hens, ponies, or even pet the rabbits – you’d be welcome.
See & do
If you like fishing, then you are invited to see what you can catch in the river that surrounds the farm. Assuming that the friendly family of otters don’t get there first.
Of course, guests are also welcome to roam the fields and meadows, and see the exciting variety of birds, flowers, and mammals that live also live on the farm.
Venturing beyond the farm, there are stunning beaches to explore; world class mountain biking at 7 Stanes and both Kirkcudbright – the Artists’ Town – and Sweetheart Abbey are fascinating places to visit.
