Since 1972 the Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail has developed into seven interesting walks over three working farms involving local charities.
One of the walks of 2/3 mile (1100 meters) through Beatons Wood has been made suitable for wheelchair users. This is where you see white anemones followed by the vistas of bluebells, established over centuries. On this walk there are seats for you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this oak and hornbeam wood. Along the walks there are signs illustrating the flora and fauna of the countryside for your information.
At neighbouring Parkwood Farm, milking of the large dairy herd can be seen from a special viewing gallery every afternoon between 3:00pm and 5:00pm. To get there involves a walk of about 1.5 miles, and you will have to walk back!
At Primrose Farm there is a horse livery, also this is where the young cattle are reared.
We have pens of Herdwick sheep, pigs and pygmy goats for the children to see close up, but remember, pigs can bite! Ensure children wash their hands thoroughly with warm water and soap at the adjoining sink if they do stroke any of the animals.
