April; Lambs, spring flower – primroses and daffodils. Woodland walks

The last of the pregnant ewes has had her lambs, so we now have a beautiful flock of Jacobs with lambs gambling in the spring sunshine.
The frog tadpoles have hatched and the toads are starting to lay their strings of eggs spawn in the pond.
The Spring flowers are brightening up the garden and farm; dwarf daffodils, primroses (Devon’s county flower) and even the odd bluebell is starting to come out!

Bella, the springer spaniel is happy to show you the way on your walk

Enjoy the farm Devon wildlife trail, taking you for a walk through the woodland, fields and next to the pond and stream.

It’s such a beautiful time of year made even more special by the clear starry nights we experience as Huxtable Farm is situated within Exmoor’s Dark Sky Reserve. At night time you may even hear the Tawny owls calling and see a bat or two flying in the courtyard.

We look forward to seeing you soon to share in some of nature’s delights, click on the following link to view  Video’s of Huxtable Farm B&B and its Devon farm wildlife.
