Our animals

Our animals are an everyday part of life at Boscrowan but they are also a great source of entertainment and delight for many of our visitors. Wander around Boscrowan and you will more than likely meet horses, ducks, chickens, a cat and our  collie dog Meg, who is always partial to some fuss.

Many of our youngest visitors list feeding and meeting the farm animals as their most popular memory of Boscrowan and we all know that the best holidays are full of memories. We actively encourage younger visitors to participate in the routines of the farm such as collecting eggs from the free range poultry or watching the farrier shoe the horses.

Our bird feeders encourage many varieties of birds to our gardens and binoculars and a bird guide book will help young and old learn more. We are always keen to know which varieties of birds our guests have spotted!
