Situated in Arkleby, near Aspatria (northwest Cumbria)

Summer - when it arrives - brings warmer days and nights to Ewe Close and its time for most of our animals to live outdoors full time.

Fences and gates have been reinforced and shelters have been constructed for the goats, as they absolutely hate getting wet when it rains!

The sheep have been clipped so they're cooler when the sun's shining and their wool is available to buy. Check out our 'For Sale' page for more information.


We regret that in 2013 we shall only be open to private parties of 15 persons or more, and then by prior arrangement.

We are able to open for any Educational Establishment that wishes to arrange a school or college visit - again by prior arrangement

Please contact us to arrange a party visit.
