Around the meadows
With 9 acres of meadows to explore there's an abundance of wildlife to discover. A natural pond, wetland habitat, babbling brooks and wooded glades. Our crystal clear skies are perfect for stargazing. On clear nights the Milky Way is easy to spot. Gather around the fire pits and listen to the badgers bark or grab a torch and go on a night safari.
We have signed footpaths weaving around the meadows. Follow the trail and explore the wetland habitat and the pond area. Measure the Great Oak - we think it's about 350 years old. Take a nap on the hammock and paddle in the stream. Spot the water vole dam and the hedgehog house - also home to the elusive polecat.
Build a den or cubby
You'll find plenty of dead wood lying around. Practice your den building skills or help our wildlife by building a cosy insect and animal house. We know from experience that they get well used by our resident creatures.
The Viking Games
On or off-site, try your hand at archery, axe throwing, paintball, bullrings, kubb, molkky, stigge and laser clay shooting. Test your ability and agility to see if you have what it takes to become a Viking warrior. Advance booking required.
We have some amazing bird species in the meadows. From extremely friendly robins to our nosy resident magpie. But it's fantastic to watch the buzzards and the red kites soaring above the trees. Bring a pair of binoculars and try to identify as many species as you can.
