I loved this attraction, it was so different to any other wildlife experience I'd had before. There is an interesting talk before you go to the hide. Then a short walk down to the hide where you are seated in front of a glass panel...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.
