Here's one I almost forgot to post.
Recently, on one of our jaunts, we visited Lydiate Hall Farm which is in Lancashire about 30 minutes North of my house. There is a farm shop where we buy local produce and also a nice little cafe for a good lunch or home made cake and coffee.
Best of all there is a big duck pond and a little country walk with so many peacocks, far more than I've ever seen in one place.
They performed beautifully and I was able to get really close up for my photos.
Such a small place but it is a little gem for a short visit not too far from home.
The ducks keep children and adults amused for free!
These two proud cockerels were real bossy boots.
Lazy sheep in such an idyllic setting
The cafe and pond
Nothing much there but it's a little hidden gem where we love to stop occasionally and I just thought it was worth sharing.
Better by far than MacDonalds!
