Just returned from a week at Paddocks Farm staying in The Cockerel. A truly unique and enjoyable holiday. Lindsay & Frank are excellent hosts & seeing the animals in the sanctuary & the amount of time & work that is put into caring for them is humbling. We enjoyed time around the pool & explored the local area. Plenty to do. A peaceful gem of a plaRead morece. Definitely returning next year. Hide

It was idyllic!! Beautiful place to stay, tranquility, outdoor swimming pool, lovely gardens, plenty of places to sit and see the views and soak up the sun. The cherry on the cake though was the animals! What a sight every morning! Baby wallaby eating grass from pouch was my favourite moment! A fantastic place for animals and humans!!!
