Nature Reserve and Woodland
This part of Valley View Farm has obviously been home to animals and plants for thousands of years, but over the past few months the owner has been trying to attract a wider range of flora and fauna by adding water, nest boxes, and generally enhancing the natural habitat for the benefit of all living things (including guests).
It opened in July 2018, but is still in the early stages of development.
Jill plans to install cameras, so that barn and annexe guests can view the wildlife from the comfort of the armchair, a la Spring Watch.
This is very much a 'work in progress'.
Jill hopes that guests will feel free to try use the area to enjoy the wildlife and feel free to make camps or such like.
There are lots of fallen branches and plenty of dead vegetation to help with structures - the ideal place to hone your bush craft skills!
Jill also provides checklists/clipboards and encourages guests to see what they can spot.
Help from keen naturalists and birdwatchers in adding to the list would be much appreciated, and give future guests the pleasure of ticking off sightings.
Child must always be accompanied at all time and entry to this area is strictly at your own risk.
The pond is deep in parts and therefore extremely hazardous.
