Family Wildlife Explorer

Half Term Family fun, spotting wildlife by the river

This half term, we are running a special Family Wildlife Explorer Experience here at The Great House

Steve from GG Wildlife Experiences, known locally as “The Bird Whisperer”, will take you and your children on a guided wildlife walk, starting from the grounds of The Great House, to help you see, hear and learn all about our local wildlife.


Steve has captured in the area around sightings of Kingfisher, Egyptian Geese, Mandarin Ducks, Swans, Woodpeckers, Red Kites, Buzzards, Goldcrests, and a variety of small woodland birds too. We’ll then head alongside the river to a lock, back through a picturesque churchyard, on a route that then loops back to the Hotel.


Equipped with binoculars (welcome to bring your own or email [email protected] after booking your ticket to secure your free loan pair), there’s fun for all the family as we seek out foxes, rabbit,s and deer, whilst also becoming “Bird Whisperers in Training”.


A small bag of bird food is included per child, a spotting guide so they can mark off what they see, and a Bird Whisperer sticker to show they completed their training!


The routes are short and at a wildlife spotting pace. The walk is suitable for children of all ages that you think will enjoy the activity, and the route is suitable for buggies that can manage slightly off-road pathways. Grandparents are welcome too!


Why not make a day of it & treat yourselves to lunch at Coppa
