If you would like a Farm Experience, we also have accommodation just 5 min from the town centre called the “Sheep Out”.  Set amongst a beautiful garden and loads of Friendly Farm animals, the Sheep Out is very tranquil and also beautifully decorated.  Sally and Phil are amazing hosts!  They have Barbeque facilities and a kitchenette.
Shearing demonstrations can also be organised if it suits Sally and Phil (prior arrangement is preffered)
