Wildlife and its conservation

The established woodland is home to squirrels and rabbits. These in turn are a food source for buzzards, whilst our resident owls feed on the numerous small rodents.

Brown hares thrive within the parkland of the gardens. All our activities are carefully managed to encourage wildlife and increase biodiversity.

Recent conservation work carried out on site means insects and amphibians are now thriving in the gardens.
