Love Nature

Our six-acre Nature Trail is a haven for wildlife.  The woodland setting is an area of old nursery land, previously used for growing specimen trees.  Today, a network of bark pathways lead you through a variety of woodland and meadow habitats populated by a wealth of wildlife and birds, as well as our own animals including wallabies, raccoon dogs, goats, rare-breed pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, ferrets, rabbits, and a Falabella miniature horse. Also resident on the Trail are Willows Birds of Prey, including owls, hawks, kestrels, buzzards and many more!

Pushchair and wheelchair accessible, the Nature Trail is a great place for the whole family to enjoy. Join our “Friends of the Nature Trail” scheme and save money every time you visit! For just £64.99, a Family Pass allows two adults and up to three children to visit the Trail as many times as you like for a whole year, excellent value at less than £6 per month.

The Nature Trail is open every day, last entry is 30 minutes before closing time.*

Grow Your Own Herbs

Our children may not have seen Michael Bond’s BBC TV series “The Herbs”,
but many of us have very fond memories of this delightful programme. The programme introduced us to characters like Parsley the Lion, Dill the Dog, and Sir Basil and Lady Rosemary.  These all represented herbs that are delicious and easy to grow - an ideal introduction to gardening for children.
