Reactive Dog Guide
Wilfreds Farm is situated in a very quiet dead end lane in a VERY rural location with little or no passing traffic and only one house beyond.The garden is all at the front (grassed) and has hedging all around and mesh to the height of 4.5 feet highThe cottage is surrounded by farm land. To date, we have had no reports of bird scarers but we will keep an eye on this!The local farmer (Wilfred’s grandson) does everything he can to promote wildlife. There is a huge variety of birds and other wildlife immediately round the farm house, with two Sites of Special Scientific Interest at the end of the road. One to the right and one to the left.About five minutes from the dead end of the road is South Fen, a huge open area for walking dogs. Early in the morning and at dusk it’s possible to see four barn owls quartering the fen! Herons, Geese and many seasonal migrants spend time there alongside the River Ant. There are canoes for hire along this stretch from Dilham Hall Canoes.
Location & Directions
Wilfred’s Farm is a 300 year old farm house with an original pegged wooden A beam room and tudor bricks in some of the outbuilding walls.
As it’s so old, it is positioned south west to catch the sun for the whole day, meaning it’s a light, bright, cheerful space. Only 50 years ago, Wilfred was farming the land using the shire horses he had bred himself. He thought horses preserved the soil structure better than heavy tractors. He kept chickens, pigs, cows, calves and grew potatoes, barley, wheat, and harvested the many Bramley apples from the five old trees that shelter the side of the house from the field where he kept his horses. The cottage has gorgeous sash windows, lots of nooks and crannies, huge feature fireplace and a beautifully designed spacious garden.
Park your car in the designated (3) spaces to the front of the cottage and walk to the front door.
