Flora and Fauna - A SSSI site with a wealth of beauty and
Lonsdale Park is home to a huge variety of wild life, remember
to bring your binoculars fishing with you!
The site is very popular with bird watchers with its resident
Kingfishers, Grasshopper Warblers and visiting Ospreys, Buzzards,
Red Starts and many, many other species found on-site.
One regular bird watcher recently counted over 45 different
species of birds at one sitting.
As a result, we thoroughly recommend our guests to explore the
surroundings quietly in order to share the excitement of previous
visitors who have spotted not only rare birds but also deer, foxes
More recent arrivals were a family of hedgehogs who took up
residence near the cottages and were frequently seen by guests
whilst the wetter than usual weather proved a bonus for the wild
orchids which flourished better than ever.
