    My six year old son loves farm animals - are there any chickens/ducks/cows/horses etc on the property? I saw a mention of an animal nursery, but no other details. Also we stayed many years ago and I recall a large chicken run, is that still there?

    The animal nursery had pigs, geese, goats, sheep and chickens.

    We have booked for June. Are any of the pools heated or will we just be admiring them from afar?

    Hi MarkkN591, one of our pools is heated and the spa adjoining it sits at 37 degrees which is a lovely place to be in the winter!
