And here are some exciting extras for those who love nature...
We regularly have hares, pheasants and birds in the garden, one of which is a Hen Harrier. One can even spot an eagle (on a very rare occasion). We've seen seals on the beach. Otters drinking from our pond. We've also seen Hump-backed whales, pods of orcas and dolphins in the flow perfectly visible from our sitting room (we are providing binoculars for our guests). The orcas and dolphins are fairly regular visitors. Also shoals of Mackeral make an appearance in the summer months. Cows and sheep in the adjacent fields on occasions.
