Out and About

There are plenty of activities to choose from while staying at Nicholson Farm.  Farmer Tim is famous for his Farm Tours where you can learn all about the processes of Dairy Farming and explore the other areas of farm life.  There are great footpaths through the farm that can take you on beautiful walks through the countryside.  Bicycle hire can be arranged if you want to go further afield.  There are fishing lakes close by at Docklow Pools for the keen fisherman/woman.   The Cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester are also within half an hours drive and both have much to offer in the way of shopping, Cinema, Bowling and more cultural activities.
