What's On

The Visitor Centre is open 10am-4pm.

Autumn is one of the best times to see our deer roaming in the paddocks, including this year's youngsters as we prepare them for release. The foxes can often be seen making the most of sunny afternoons to lounge and show off the start of their beautiful winter coats.

This is also when we see an increase in small hedgehogs coming through our doors. Many of these youngsters will have got into difficulty whilst trying to fend for themselves away from mum. We are happy to be here to offer them a safe haven whilst we get them ready for life back in the wild.
