Cools Farm is in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. You can see the stars at night as there is very little light pollution. You can watch the red kites and buzzards flying around and look for deer grazing the fields. Our Red Poll cattle are worthy of a painting and our chickens and ducks amuse adults and children alike. We even have a wild white rabbit scampering around. Percy, our Jack Russell dog, thinks that all guests come here to throw balls for him, so you can entertain yourselves and him in our lovely large garden if that is what you wish.
Alternatively, you can treat us a base and explore the many visitor attractions here in the South West.
