Become an Eco Ranger at Merlin Farm
Children are encouraged to become 'Eco Ranger's' during their holiday and spot the wildlife at Merlin Farm. We also encourage them to take part in recycling and '2 minute beach cleans' when they visit our beautiful beach. A children's guide is provided in each family cottage and a fun activity sheet which they can fill in and share what they have seen and done during their stay.
Spot the WildlifeKeep a look out during your stay for the resident wildlife who thrive at Merlin Farm due its peaceful and tranquil location. Fill out the activity sheet in your cottage telling us what you see
Be GreenMerlin Farm won a 'gold' award for being green. You can play your part in being green whilst staying at Merlin Farm by ticking as many of the boxes on the activity sheet as you can, from recycling to switching off lights when you go out.
2 minute beach cleansPlease help to keep our beaches clean. Each time you visit why not take part in a fun project where you photograph how much litter you can find in just 2 minutes and post on Instagram with the hashtag #2minutebeachclean
