Nature Reserve

The Wildlife TrustsGuests wishing to visit the hotel’s private nature reserve will be pleased to discover it is only a short stroll from the terrace at the rear…..

…..venture beyond the ornamental pond located behind the swimming pool and you will find one of the 2 entrance gates.

Our nature reserve is an area of outstanding natural beauty & biodiversity, home to an ever-expanding range of local & migratory wildlife, no hunting or trapping, legal or otherwise has been allowed in our reserve for over 35 years. Once inside, you will see evidence of the great storm of 1987 in the form of felled trees, resting where the storm left them! You will also see our natural lake, established for over 100 years & home to a thriving eco-system.

Please note, that once inside the nature reserve, you will be in a wild environment with natural hazards i.e. the occasional falling branch, naturally formed bodies of water etc, we suggest that you exercise caution and stick to the paths denoted by orange striped logs and be especially careful around the lake periphery whilst inside.

  • There are 2 main entrance/exit points, it is important that you leave the area as nature has made it! Please shut and padlock the gates upon entering & exiting the reserve, this will prevent any other unwelcome visitors from entering and possibly putting themselves in danger.
  • We respectfully request that visitors wash their hands & footwear upon returning to the hotel.
  • Please return the key to reception once your visit is over.
