We visited Devon Badger Watch on late August and were fascinated and enthralled to see a group of badgers emerge from their den and forage just a few feet away. We go badger watching in Surrey each summer but we have never be so up...More

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
