On the farm we have lambing in the Spring, followed by cows calving, then there's sheep shearing, haymaking and silaging. Along with their parents children are welcome to help bottle feed young lambs, help feed and water the expectant mothers and collect eggs for breakfast in the morning if the hens are laying. Certain times of the year are busier than others on the farm so what there is to see can vary, please feel free to enquire when booking your holiday.

Alstonefield has won the best village award many times in the past. It is a stunning village with a close knit community who are always friendly and willing to help. Alstonefield is actually built on a limestone plateau, which is 900 feet above sea level, making for lovely views. There is a popular old coaching inn just in front of the old wool market, and shops that used to thrive on the silk industry, making silk buttons! It is a wonderful village, with craft shops and galleries to potter about in as well as being the link to the wonderful countryside all around.
