The Nature Cabin

We're thrilled to house the Nature Cabin in partnership with the RSPB. Each wall is dedicated to a season, with exciting activities to try for each. It's a great way to earn the seasonal RSPB Growing Up Wild Paw Print, too - you can buy these for 80p each, just ask when booking.

Our special rate of £5 per group booking continues until 31 March 2020. You can combine it with a stay in Silver Birches or Badgers or book it just for a daytime or evening visit, and use it for as long as you want! The Brilliant Birds box will also be available, as well as the beautiful countryside of the campsite.

After the special promotion, the price will be £10 per group booking.
