The Pop Art exhibition at the The Herbert should definitely be on your list to visit if you are heading to Coventry during your stay. The Herbert is a great free gallery and museum only about 20 mins drive from North Mere. With Coventry becoming the UK City of Culture in 2021 there will hopefully be some more little gems like this to visit.

On the farm we provide lots of habitats for different wildlife. Bees are something we try to provide for by creating lots of flower rich areas. We have now got a perfect place for solitary bees to nest, in an earth bank in the farmyard. These solitary bees have created loads and loads of tiny holes in the earth. We think they are a species call the Colletes Bees.
