Farm Animals and Feeding Rounds
Normally guests can join Ali on her animal rounds, but due to government guidelines during the Covid19 situation this is not possible. However, guests can still meet the cows, sheep and alpacas from the garden fence.
Guests must NOT enter the fields alone due to our insurance policy, in addition the animals do not know you and could hurt/injure you.
Can I bring my dog?
Sorry… no… we do not allow pets as the house is surrounded by livestock.
Can we have friends/family over to see us when we are staying at Arnbeg Farmstay?
Sorry, due to this current Covid19 pandemic only ONE household is permitted> However please check with us for any changes in guidelines before booking.
