We had received tickets from a friend for a free visit for a family. Her family are all grown up and she thought we might use the ticket. We kept putting it off all summer because the weather has been rubbish but to finish off Little Man's birthday week with another treat , we decided to make the most of a beautiful day. we left it until 11ish to leave and wow we all had such a lovely time and a lovely late lunch afterwards in the onsite cafe. The food was freshly prepared and lovely. We will be back not only because of the beautiful location but the cafe too. Half way after the farm part there was a large shed too with hot water and sanitation gel ... In the past when we have visited farms where you see random gel dispensers but this was much better.
The farm has the usual farm animals but also a lama, emu , loads of ponies and a huge donkey. If you walk the coastal path you might be lucky as we were to see a white seal pup up on the rocks and it's mother back and forth nursing it. The walk to the coastline is about one and half miles , a bit slippery and lots of rabbit holes but with "sensible shoes" we walked it fine . We enjoyed, the sunshine, sea breeze and magnificent views. It really was one of the best days out.
On our arrival we were warned at the reception that there are roaming piglets .... We were warned
not to touch them as they would bite and if we feed them to chuck the food on the ground.As
soon as you enter the enclosure piggies come running up to you hoping you have bought the animal feed bags (we of course had ) . They follow you like faithful little puppies...My two squealed with delight at the piggies.... they just could not believe how close they were and I have never been that close to a pig ever, you had to be careful not to trip over them..oh they were noisey but oh so cute!!
They were so funny to watch ..very entertaining. We definitely witnessed pig hierarchy at it's funniest!!!
Well I'll leave the pictures to tell the rest
and then beautiful views
Little Miss deep in thought.
The kids loved it and didn,t moan once about
Unfortunately although we saw a seal
and her pup
They were trying to hide in
the rock face
and we didn,t get a decent picture.
A great day out and boy did the children
fall asleep quick that night!
See you soon
