Walks and fishing on Lee Barton Farm

Pleasant  walks n this  working dairy and crop farm. Or try your hand at the free carse fishing. Birds and other wildlife are drawn  to the farms ponds & woodland. See if you can identify the  different varieties of animals and birds including  woodpeckers, kingfishers, sometimes a heron  and even perhaps the occasional badger or fox.  A few minutes walk from the barn conversion holiday cottages is the ancient carp pond used by monks in the12th cent  (one of the oldest such ponds in the country & featured on a T.V. programme).  This pond has been set aside as a natural  reserve, sometimes playing host to migratory  ducks.  The fishing  pond  is used for coarse fishing, stocked during 2003 and 2004 with rudd, tench and carp. Usually can catch lots of fish, but mostly small. Instead of fishing why not use the location to enjoy a picnic!  Enjoy the footpath walks through the farms woods and  circular walks  linking to local footpaths.  Take the lane from the farm down through Coombe Valley, finishing at the beach at Duckpool, a good sandy beach with magnificent scenery.
