What you'll do
Feed and stroke two gorgeous Herdwick sheep. You will enjoy a traditional tea in the garden looking at our panoramic views. Our two naughty pet sheep will come and join you for cuddles and a bit of naughtiness and trying to eat all the wrong things.. When you have finished your home-made cakes , you will take the sheep to their barn and give them their tea and a goodbye stroke. A special feeling.. If we have new lambs there might be the chance to give them a bottle of milk too. Hens and cats may come to see you too. Animals are unpredictable and untrained. Bring a sense of humour and a camera. Please don't film and feed at the same time- they like your full attention. There is a one hour circular walk that goes through an enchanting wood and I recommend walking from the village to the location, 20 mins. This is an outdoor experience in the Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park so dress warmly and ready for quick changes of weather.
