Nature trail

Farmer Ray is passionate about sharing the farm with wildlife, and actively encourages flora and fauna of all kinds to make the farm its home. The farm nature trail weaves its way through a woodland area surrounding a pond, all of which is being actively managed to encourage birds, mammals, invertebrates and aquatic life to take up residence.
 
See how many different species of wildflower, tree or bird you can spot or challenge each other to find different insects and animals on your way around the trail! Also, why not while away some time watching the birds at the feeding station from our new bird hide or see who’s in residence at the bug hotel.
 
When you’ve finished the nature trail, why not head into our Woodland Walk and see how things have changed over the seasons from your last visit?
 
Often, trail sheets and quizzes are available from the entry cabin on arrival to make your experience even more fun.
