To allow the farm crops to establish, occasionally there will be bird scarers in use, typically this will be in late autumn and the spring. The bird scarers are not located near the cottage but maybe audible when walking, they do not go off at night. They are blue and orange an located on the edge of a field.. Guests are very welcome to walk both the public footpaths and on our field margins. Dog mess must be cleared up within the grass land where our cattle graze. (to prevent Neospora caninum), while on the rest of the farm land please clean up after your dog if on the footpaths but otherwise your dogs are welcome to enjoy the freedom of the countryside.. During early Spring the cattle with be very nervous of dogs and it maybe adviseable to not walk dogs in the cattle fields for the safety of you and your pets.. Due to the farm animals, guests are politely requested not to let off any fireworks or Chinese lanterns . Dogs and children are not permitted in the working farm yard.
