Happy New Year

We had a wet, windy and stormy New Year with severe damage to the sea wall and widespread flooding on the farm. The huge waves came over the wall, running like a river into the lake. Read more

Our beautiful lake

Our lake is looking very beautiful at this time of year. Once again we had thousands of starlings swooping over the farm and giving us a magnificent display.

Our visitors have really enjoyed the walks down by the lake this year and seen a wonderful variety of wildlife as they wander through the fields. Our hide is available for all guests to use and very popular with our ‘twitcher’ visitors!

On a recent autumn evening, we were enjoying a quiet paddle across the lake when suddenly hundreds of fish started jumping out of the water. We were lucky and able to capture it on film!
