Tucked away in the paddock lies the animal enclosure. Here you’ll find a range of friendly, furry faces for your younger ones to hold, pet and feed. From baby bunnies, to a pig called Pumpkin, there’s something for everyone.

Whether you’re a guest in one of our cottages and would love to include an animal feed, or a soon-to-be bride looking for something to keep the younger guests out of trouble, we’ll make sure a guide’s available to introduce you to all our creatures, big and small.

To take a look at the animals before you meet them ‘in person’ take a look at their profiles: there’s the Sheep, the Rabbitsthe Dogsthe Chickens, the Doves, and the Pigs.

“Pegasus Lodge was a fantastic venue for our small family wedding. Katherine was extremely helpful in so many ways, even taking the children to see her farm animals, and helping as we coordinated wedding details. The ceremony was held on the back deck, and reception with 32 people held inside. Photo shoot ranged over the farm with vineyards and animals playing a role. The whole property and neighbourhood were beautiful and family also stayed at the two other cottages on Katherine’s property. Katherine was on hand for any questions we had over the period we were there. We were all delighted (Anne-Marie, June 2015, AirBnb)”
