Join us for a guided stroll through the tapestry of flowers and grasses, and discover what makes Meadow Farm so special. Suitable for 16yrs+. BOOKING ESSENTIAL.

These hay meadows with ancient ridge-and-furrows are a remnant of old farming methods; abundant in wild flowers, insects and birds once taken for granted.

This guided walk is an opportunity to feast your senses on the changing flowers and grasses, and find out how this rare habitat is cared for. It covers under 1 mile and will be led by a member of site staff.
