Windover Farm Cottage is part of a 15 acre SMALLHOLDING. Save an apple to feed to the rare breed Gloucester Old Spot pigs, admire the various breeds of hens and watch the geese and ducks as they paddle around. The River Madford adjoins the smallholding. This shallow river offers a fantastic wildlife habitat and it supports rare species including kingfishers and water voles. By day, explore the river or by night, sit on the patio and listen to the owls calling, the river babbling while watching the stars.
A huge quantity of GARDEN BIRDS are attracted to the peanut and mixed seed feeders. Study them from the kitchen or the garden. An easy-to-use bird identifying book is supplied to help you get started. Green woodpeckers, robins, long tailed tits and gold finches are all regular visitors.
There is off-road private PARKING for 2 vehicles. More vehicles can be accommodated by arrangement.
If you are reluctant to leave your DOGS at home, why not try Westown Holiday Camp for dogs. Here your dog lives as part of the family on this lovely farm situated in the heart of the Culm Valley around 2½ miles from the cottage. No kennels, just acres of green fields, a river (that all dogs love to swim in) and lots of wonderful smells!
The area is great for WALKING and we supply a set of Ordnance Survey maps so that you can make the very best use of the network of public rights of way. There are also several walking books available to borrow or use some of the planned walks available on the Blackdown Hills AONB website here.
The cottage sits within the BLACKDOWN HILLS Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The views are tremendous and the location itself gives a wonderful sense of space and freedom. Click here for more information on the Blackdown Hills AONB (which boasts a fantastic website!).
