About the event

The land surrounding this old farmhouse has been planted to encourage wildlife; fruit trees, a wild flower meadow, and ponds all enrich the local ecosystem.

This amazing 9 acre wildlife garden has been developed from farmland over the last 6 years and is still evolving. It has a variety of different aspects to the garden including ponds, bluebell filled woodland and formal and informal flower planting. Many trees and shrubs have been planted and this garden is already seeing a large increase in insects, butterflies, moths, birds and mammals including many bats.
