Here you will be able to enjoy the night sky as it is one of the darkest in western Europe. August is amazing with its shooting stars. The sky is bright with stars and the Milky Way is easily seen.
Wildlife is plentiful and interesting. Red Kites fly over the fields next to the house and over the lake. Black Kites, Hen Harriers, and Lapwings with their aerobatics are fun to watch and we have an owl which likes to visit us. Buzzards and kestrels are common, often perching on telegraph poles beside the lanes.
Closer to earth, wild boar, deer, badgers and hares are often seen nearby in the fields.
