  • We happened to come by this place on our drive back to the B&B and I am so glad we did. Tom was excellent and gave us a great experience. I got to bottle feed a 7 day old baby lamb and it made my whole weekend! 😊 Also amazing to see Holly rounding up all the sheep and learning about her, it was very enjoyable. Also the views were fantastic from where we were watching. Thanks for the experience and photos Tom! 😀
