Farmers everywhere have been very busy, lambing season is here.. We’re so lucky in the UK countryside to see those little bouncy ball of wool hopping about or snuggling up to their mums in the Spring sunshine.
Lambing time is one of the most tricky times of year in a shepherd’s calendar, and a fascinating spectacle for those who are lucky to be able to experience lambing at first hand.
If you’d like to come and stay at a UK holiday cottage on or near a sheep farm, we have some great possibilities…
Seeing the lambs just born, skipping around in the fields near your holiday cottage is magical and here at this quaint holiday cottage in kent, The Old Stable at Upchurch it becomes a reality!
Originally stables and tack room, The Old Stable has been thoughtfully converted to make for a wonderful Kent holiday stay on a working farm. Guests are very welcome to walk from the property over the adjoining countryside where lambs can be seen frolicking during Spring.
Another cottage that will allow you to see and hear all the spring lambs is this lovely holiday cottage in Sussex, Home Farm House, has a menagerie of animals including lots of lovely little lambs locally. There are lots of other animals from rheas to wild boar – so much to see!
If you’d like to explore some of East Anglia, The Goat Herd at Sudbury could be ideal.
Families will love all the fun on the farm at this holiday cottage in Suffolk. Facilities abound, catering for the tots, the children, the teenagers and adults! There is a gorgeous indoor swimming pool housed in an impressive Scandinavian style lodge; the doors can be thrown opened during the warm weather and the hot tub sits close by so you can dip from one to the other in seconds.
For those who love the Cotswolds, Pinkney Court Lodge would be a wonderful place to see alpacas arrive into the world.
This stunning apartment cottage forms part of a traditional Cotswold manor house dating back to the 16th century. Set in a peaceful position in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside, Pinkney Court Lodge offers a haven to relax and unwind. Playing a game of tennis, visiting the alpacas or having a walk to the great local pub for a spot of lunch are all great things to enjoy in Spring.
