Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit. This year has been particularly challenging for Kevin and I as the badgers have been more reluctant and less reliable than usual (over the last 20...More

Very accessible wildlife, excellent prolonged views of Badgers. Our children (10 and 8) really enjoyed it (and were much quieter than some of the adults). I would recommend this to anybody with an interest in wildlife.

Loved every minute of this trip. Booked the photography evening. Hide well equiped and comfortable. Nothing between the camera and the badgers. Even managed to spot a tiny Wood Mouse buzzing around. Host knowledgeable and patient. Badgers looked happy and healthy.
