Wildlife at Merlin Farm
Keep a look out during your stay for the resident wildlife who thrive at Merlin Farm due its peaceful and tranquil location.
Here are just some of the animals you may spot during your stay. Hover over the pictures below to find out more about them.
As well as the wildlife Merlin Farm is also home to a few farm animals. Holly and Horace are often in the field directly in front of the cottages and love to be patted and fed carrots and apples. Sometimes they are kept in a smaller paddock at the top of the farm when they need to go on a diet (they are piggies and eat too much grass). We provide children with a jar of poultry feed in their cottage so that they can feed the chickens and ducks who can be fed in the morning and evening in their enclosure. They are then let out to free range during the middle part of the day around the farm. Hover over the pictures below to find out more about them.
