My great nephews and nieces loved to visit Farway Countryside Park. So sorry to see it close.It was a real country experience. The bottle feeding of the lambs and kids. Being able to handle rats, rabbits etc, taking the goats for walks, pony riding, having a ride on the tractor to see the deer being fed and the owner telling us about the antlers and letting us handle them, playing on all the indoor and outdoor facilities. One day, while there, we saw a calf being born, trying to get up then standing. It was a job to get the children home each time we went.For me, I loved watching the children's faces when feeding the lambs.Many thanks to Edward and Christine Harding for the pleasure they gave us. All the very best to them in the future. Dorothy WarnerWillow Walk Honiton
