If you explore in the woods at the bottom of the valley, you will find a stream. There are wild primroses, bluebells, foxgloves and other flowers in the woods and meadows, depending on the season. Patient wildlife enthusiasts may see deer, owls, bats, badgers, rabbits, foxes, buzzards and even Peregrine Falcons.
We have recently planted an orchard and laid some new hedges to encourage insects and birds, and the fields, where sheep are grazed, are farmed to encourage wildlife, using no artificial fertilizers. We have a snowy owl in residence in the barn.
