The Farm provides self-catering for overnight stays for those wishing to explore the birds, sea life and be at one with nature on Skomer. The Puffins live undergound in burrows where they nest and bring up their young before flying off to sea. All over the island, one can get up close and personal with the Puffins. They fly off at regular intervals to dive for sand eels to feed their young. Puffin can dive to depths of up to 200 feet (60 metres) to feed.
