Farm Animals

Our animals are all friendly, inquisitive, and love company. Most will eat from your hand, and all will pose for photographs!


Tulloch is home to a modest flock of blackface sheep. Lambing usually starts in April.

Every year we also help raise one or two orphan lambs from local farmers so each spring you can be sure to find bottle fed, friendly lambs in the farmyard following Farmer Robert like puppies. (Jack and Victor pictured)

The Tulloch Farm Dogs

You can help to feed them their bottle or just stroke and cuddle them. As they grow up they are introduced to the Tulloch flock, and will join the field with their new fleecy friends. Most of our sheep will eat sheep food from your hand.


In the farmyard you will meet our chickens and ducks led by Harley the cockrel. They are happy to provide you daily with truly free range eggs.

We sell fresh hen and duck  eggs for your breakfast! You can feed the chickens any bread or vegetable scraps and they will follow you looking for more!

Duck eggs are larger and richer – the secret to a good sponge cake is a duck egg!

Tulloch Mini Goats


Tulloch is home to Alfie, Jeffrey and Bobo,  They sleep in the barn at nightand come out to play in the field by day.

Goats do not like rain or extreme cold so they will burrow into the hay and straw to keep warm if they don’t approve of the weather!

Many people assume goats eat grass, but in fact they are browsers not grazers. They prefer leaves and branches, roots and shoots – and are not good lawnmowers.

Tulloch Black Labrador Dogs


We have 3 resident labradors. Lucy, Hamish and Ella. They love all of the guests and are very friendly.

If you want a dog to accompany you down to the river, to fetch sticks, or to sit in the sunshine for a tummy tickle then these are the dogs for the job!

If you have a dog(s) then they are most welcome to holiday here with you (click for details)


In the photo is our Clydesdale gelding, called “Tug”. He is the very definition of a “gentle giant”. 17hh tall and strong as an ox Tug would not harm a fly. Unfortunately Tug went over the rainbow bridge in 2020.

We now have three horses called Georgie, Shadow & Neville

All the horses will hang over the fence to see if you have any carrots or apples. We are not insured for guests to ride our horses but there are trekking centres locally.

Why not also explore our play barn, for children and adults.
