Details

Join us for an action packed evening of wildlife activities and a night under canvas. We'll cook dinner around the campfire, and during the evening we'll be pond dipping, moth trapping and bat detecting. We'll set off once it's dark to see what's about when we're usually asleep. Before we tuck ourselves up in our tents, we'll toast some marshmallows and find our favourite constellations. As dawn breaks we'll open the moth trap and then head off for an early morning nature walk.

Booking essential - call 01633 636363.
