Thank you to everyone who visited our stand at the Great Irish Game Fair at Shane’s Castle in June. We had a great time, met loads of people, met some old friends and made some new ones. (British Bird Puzzlers – answers at the bottom of this page).
SELF-CATERING RIVERSIDE CABIN
Check out our log style cabin at the river, for rent on a self-catering basis. Perfect for nature lovers, or even just for a romantic getaway or quiet break, it stands alone, set between woods and countryside. We are located in Aghadowey, between the towns of Coleraine & Ballymoney, convenient to the tourist trail of the North Coast and all it has to offer. We are also very close to facilities such as The Brown Trout Inn & Golf Club, Drumaheaglis Marina & Canoe Trail, horse riding and fishing. Pets Welcome.
Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) Certified
We have a range of products to cater for your birds and wildlife, including nest boxes and feeders, to encourage them into your garden for you to enjoy. We also have some fun and educational items for children, such as the plush birds (with birdsong), as well as attractive gifts for you and your home.
WILD BIRD FEEDING SERVICES
We offer a range of services to help you, including the set up and maintenance of bird feeders and feeding stations in your own garden, as well as special packages for local schools, residential homes and businesses.
At Willowfield, where we live with our pets, we pride ourselves in also providing a home for nature, and our aim is to encourage and enable others to experience and enjoy it for themselves. We are so lucky to have so many species of birds here, 54 at the last count, we want others to share in the joy they bring.
We are very fortunate that our grounds extend to the banks of the Aghadowey River (the ‘Wee Agivey’) that brings it’s own wildlife flowing through, from birds like the kingfisher, dipper and assorted ducks and swans, the trout and salmon under the surface (usual licenses required if you care to fish), to the hedgehogs, foxes, badgers and the otters that have recently appeared.
We have our own pet goats in residence in the paddock. We also have a wildlife pond full of life; frogs, fish, dragonflies and damselflies, all very attractive to the local heron population, and the little islands in the middle of the pond have offered safe haven to ducks and their ducklings fleeing the fox!
Whether you come and stay in Willowfield Riverside Cabin for a bit of relaxing bird & nature spotting, or take advantage of the Wild Bird Feeding Services and Wildlife Products we offer for your own home, we hope we can help you share in the joy of birds and the nature around us all.
We Hope To See You Soon. . . . .
