Bodrifty Farm

County : Cornwall



What there is to see and do :

An organic moorland farm supporting a suckler herd of Belted Galloway. It consists of 9ha of grassland, 8ha western heath and 1ha woodland. The fields are of ancient origin and many stone hedges were made over 200 years ago which makes them some of the oldest objects that have been in continuous use ever since. There is also a unique prehistoric village which is enhanced for educational purposes by a recently constructed replica roundhouse.
