Each season has its own beauty throughout the year, , with
some extra special occasions, such as lambing which takes
place during March and April, the cuckoos arriving to steal
other birds nests, and
the swallows building their nests around the farm buildings.
Many other species of birds are arriving from their winter
habitat, the wild life is abundant and the wild flowers
are coming into bloom.
evenings are a great time to take advantage of the farm tours,
when the moor is in full flower and in all its glory. The red
deer are very much in evidence, and can be seen with their young.
The views are stunning with views covering many miles and in some
places takes in the sea and the coast of Wales.
Autumn again deserves a
visit when the wild red deer are changing the colour of their
coats, and losing their antlers, also the young deer start to
grow their own. Autumn is the time when the Highland cows calve,
and their young are a sight to behold. The leaves on the trees
are changing colour as are the colours of the moor.
If a Winter visit is envisaged,
here the weather determines the route, and the availability of
the farm tour. The moor is quiet and still, but the wild red deer
are still in evidence, the Highland cattle are grazing on the
moor, with their young, the buzzards and larger birds are hunting
for food. Also as the trees have lost their leaves, the views
are broader, and the clear mornings with the magnificent sun rises
are something not to be missed.
