The Large Pond and Woodlands
Beyond the paddock is the large pond surround by a small woodland area and beyond that a further paddock. This is a lovely place to visit, especially in summer when there is an abundance of wild flowers and the smell of freshly cut hay. In winter when it snows this can also be an adventurous walk through the deep snow and the kids will love being pulled down the gently slope. The large pond is a haven for wildlife and it is not unusual to see deer grazing the paddock, wild geese on the pond and of course there is our resident Barn Owl and our noisy Little Owls which breed every year at Boreat and the babies can be seen visiting the bird table.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the severe weather conditions earlier in the year the pond has been badly damaged and is flowing down the valley. Restoration work has now began and the ponds are filling with water and planting and landscaping of the areas around the ponds will be undertaken in the Spring.
