Guests are welcome to explore the surrounding 14 acres of meadow with river frontage and we can provide you with details of walks from the farm as well as further afield.
For most of the year, horses or cows graze on one of the meadows. There are also chickens on North Farm – do ask if you would like to meet them or get a chance to feed them.
There are two artists who work on site – please see the Artists at North Farm page for further details.
On your arrival, we will give you more information about the farm as well as showing you the areas that it is safe to explore with young children.
We are dog-friendly and one well-behaved dog is allowed in Barn Owl cottage - more details are below.
