Discover MoreThe Trout Farm
Not only a trout farm, but a nursery and wild bird sanctuary as well, this little gem of aplace is hardly publicised, but is definitely worth a detour. Clear mountain water gushesthrough wooden channels into rows of troughs filled with speckled trout. There’s alsoa duck pond where a path leads beyond the nursery to the wild bird sanctuary in thecentre of the woods. Amongst the rescued birds are a couple of permanently startledlooking owls, a buzzard, an eagle and an incredibly vain raven which insists on tellingyou how
(pretty) he is. It’s a treasure of a place in an absolutely delightfulsetting.
