If your into wildlife photography or just want to see these elusive creatures up close, you can't go far wrong here. The hides are a short walk from the main car park which has plenty of parking. Both hides have a maximum capacity of 12...More

This is a great experience for families and photographers. We arrived at 6:30 and by 7:00 we had seen two fox cubs. Later on at around 8:45, was the first appearance of the badgers. If you want to see more, stay later! We saw weasels,...More

The host met us promptly at 6:30 and led us the short walk to 2 comfortable hides. We waited only a short while before a young fox cub appeared and stayed for some time in front of the hide. The badgers (the stars of the...More

We had a wonderful time watching these animals, they are so extremely difficult to see, I am a wildlife watcher and I know how rare it is to see them this good. The place where we waited was so confortable and warm, we had electricity,...More

Arrived at 6.30 and we were warmly welcomed, and shown to the hides and had everything explained about how the evening works. Fortunately for us we were the only ones there that night. As these are wild animals there is no way to tell how...More

We were the only visitors on a wet evening so our hopes were high. Sadly we only saw one badger for about 10 minutes before we left after 2 hours. No ones fault but at £50 for 2 adults and 2 children it was a...More

Hi it was part of a present but I believe it was about £35 for the two of us so about £17.50 each. It was certainly less than £20 each and you can stay for as long as you like
