Dragons and damsels… an August Bank holiday adventure

Rain may be forecasted but it is still warm enough for a family day out before school goes back.So why not prepare a picnic, pack your waterproofs (and sunscreen!) and get set for a wildlife adventure at Denmark Farm?

 40 magical acres of woodland trails are completely free to explore. Young imaginations will be set alive by a mini-beast hunt or a search for mythical dragons or fairies.Tiptoe past the meadows to spy real dragonflies and damselflies dancing over the grass and ponds. 

 Waymarked pathways lead you into the woodland to a hidden roundhouse where a wide window allows you a secret view out on the trees.

For those with a love for larger beasts, stop to admire the gentle Highland cattle grazing the flower rich meadows.


Go in the opposite direction to discover the new timber hide built on the banks of the lake with a roof designed to mimic the feathers on a birds wing.

On a practical note, two compost toilets are available on site  (one nestled in the woods by the campsite and one in the wildlife garden). Dogs are welcome to join in your adventure, but we do ask that they are kept on leads, and that you clear up after them.

So come along and enjoy this quiet nature reserve away from the stresses of everyday life, open your eyes and immerse yourself in nature.
