Birdsong Barn offers a unique property experience surrounded by a wildflower meadow on the edge of a stream. It is set in 350 acres of varied landscape from woodlands to wetlands to wildflower meadows and the whole farm is available for walking and bird watching or just simply relaxing. The owner offers a full tour which will introduce you to the wonders of this natural environment. The 18th century barn has been restored by local craftsmen creating a beautiful and luxury holiday home, comfortably sleeping four with room for an additional two using the double sofa bed. You will fall in the love with this stylish property and staying here allows you private access to all the farm and the private Nature Reserve, which has been put into a conservation charity by the owner. A personal guided, informative tour can be arranged with the owner giving you the opportunity to get close to the endangered Shetland Cattle, the beautiful Konik Ponies and also sheep and Bagot goats. It is the perfect spot for bird watchers and photographers with huge numbers of wintering wildfowl with over 120 species of bird recorded, more than 30 species of butterfly and 22 species of dragonfly.
