We understand the importance of this small pocket of ecology for the future. We live and work in an environmentally sensitive way, considering the effect on the incredible biodiversity that is present here in everything we do. Encouraging (nearly!) all of the petalled, leafed, furry and feathered wildlife to thrive.
"At The Ritty we found stars, sunsets, soothed souls and lifted spirits. The environment is glorious, the scenery sublime."Judy and Will.
Discover magical and inspiring woodland areas..
Appreciate three acres of mature oak glade woodland, enjoy fireside picnics with a yurt for shelter, or find the hammock, swinging chairs and the seat by the pond.
Through the seasons..
The woodland is especially radiant in spring with carpets of bluebells and early purple orchids, then the meadows start to steal the show, providing ever changing waves of colourful wild flowers throughout the summer. By late summer it’s all about the berry, hay and apple harvest.
Autumn sees the woodland and views transform into a rich tapestry of colours before the stillness of winter descends. The peacefulness, the clear, crisp air and splendid atmospheric views of winter are unforgettable.
A visit to Ritty Farm is recommended for anyone seeking space and connection with nature. Calling all wildlife enthusiasts, walkers, stargazers and wild swimmers.
" It was the short break we were hoping for - a total reset."Jacquie.
