Conservation

Habitat creation and sustainability

The idea behind Medley Meadow is to create a natural conservation area which can be enjoyed by our wildlife as well as our guests. The site is set in 9 acres of natural meadows. The meadows have been naturally restored with the help of Habitat Aid and The Woodland Trust.

 

Over 2200 trees have been planted as well as the creation of a natural wetland habitat. All the trees are indigenous to Monmouthshire and wildlife corridors help our animals move around the meadows.

We strongly believe in doing everything as environmentally friendly as possible. We’re trying our best and are learning all the time. We love our visitors to give us advice and suggestions on how we can improve.

Our trees

We have many tree species in the meadows carefully planted with the help of The Woodland Trust. We have hazel, oak, ash, alder, thorn, cherry and many more. Our tents are named after them. We love our great oak - over 350 years old. It makes a great picnic spot.

Our animals

Many animals have made the meadows their home. We have foxes, badgers, polecats, water voles, rabbits, squirrels and hedgehogs. We're very proud to have water voles. They've been in decline, but thanks to habitats like ours, they're making a comeback.

Our birds

In the sky you'll see buzzards and red kites. One of our buzzards has a tail feather missing so he's easy to spot. You may also meet our resident magpie. Born in the meadows in 2019, he is very tame. He visits you while you're sat on the deck. He may also pop inside for a chat.

Wetland habitat

Our restored wetland is home to a resident heron, kingfishers and many eels. The eels are critically endangered so we're lucky to have them. You'll spot them basking in the sunlight near the surface in the early hours of the morning.

Our ethos

We hope the little things we do help. We use eco friendly products, refill to reduce waste, recycle all we can, upcycle what we can, and reuse materials to make what we can. We use a biodigester for waste and source local products and services.
