504 Clonterbrook

Farming has diversified in many directions over the years, but Clonter Opera Farm must be unique. Set amidst grassy fields and daffodil-filled woodland the theatre was founded in 1974 and its operatic picnics are well known among opera lovers. And there are the Conservation Walks (now permissive paths) aimed at the creation and protection of wildlife habitats. Choose the longer walk for a leg stretch, while pram pushers can start from Messuage Farm and take the shorter, made-up path.
