For the birdwatchers amongst you, this is the ideal venue.We have a huge variety of birds to include owls which you can hear as they call to one another at night, the hypnotic call of the buzzards as they fly above the farm,and nesting in the courtyard this year 2009, we have had a redstart, a very rare and shy bird, which only goes to show what a peaceful location it is! Daily, there is an enormous variety of birds jostling for supremacy. We have a particularly well fed robin redbreast who enjoys any food left out for him on the maintenance shed! Some of our keen birdwatching guests have also enjoyed a day out to Lake Vyrnwy and its excellent birdwatching facility.
