Details

The hide gives wonderful views of badger activity at dusk and the area is lit during the evening. Watch badgers from the tree walk leading to the hide, or settle down in the treehouse itself.

Peanuts are popular with badgers and they now expect a handful in the evenings when visitors arrive at the hide. We do not make a charge for badger watching, but booking its essential and donations to wildlife conservation on the farm are most welcome.

The treehouse is close to the river amongst large oak trees and can also be used for bird watching during the day. The woodlands, hedges, rough pasture, hay meadows and wetlands produce masses of interesting plants, lichens and the insects which thrive in these areas.

We have several guests who record moths and visitors who like to photograph and record birds and insects. Some have generously passed on their pictures to us and they are included in our galleries.
