Whitelea Farm. – The farm is 91 acres in size and runs from the top ridge road at 1200ft down to the Onecote Brook. There are many walks of different lengths within the farm and links to the footpath network. See our farm animals. Alpacas, horses, sheep, pygmy goats, geese, chickens and ducks. Wild birds like curlew, lapwing, wild ducks, buzzard, red kyte and owls. Occasionally a deer. Dont forget to bring your walking boots and wellies. There are lots of places where you can just relax, enjoy the views and have a picnic.
