Our Green Campsite

We are proud that our farm is home to many different species of insects, birds and wildlife. It’s because of our landscape and it’s natural beauty that we operate an environmentally friendly campsite here at Cowpots. With only 10 pitches in our  11 acre field you will be able to enjoy the wildlife and take your family on a true wild camping adventure!

Wildlife to look out for . . .

Swallows on the wing that nest in our farm buildings from May to September
Red Kites flying high over the fields looking for small mammals in the grass
Buzzards perched in the tall trees around the quarry
Owls hooting and screeching at night
Foxes and badgers in the woods at dawn and dusk ( if you are very quiet)
Rabbits burrows along the hedge banks
Beautiful  bees and butterflies  feeding on wild plants in the hedgerows
Dragonflies hovering around the stream

Listen to the birds . . .

If you awake early listen to the wonderful dawn chorus echoing around treefield – many different birds will be serenading you

including  long-tailed tits and blue tits , blackbirds , magpies , jays , pied and yellow wagtails , yellowhammers , woodpeckers , robins , jenny wrens ,housemartins ,crows , sparrows and finches – all of which have been spotted on the farm.

If you spot any other birds or wildlife please tell us – we would love to add them to the list!
