Wildlife

The UK is the perfect places to enjoy wildlife spotting. Across the UK you can find a varied range of animals from birds to mammals to sea creatures. The pub is the ideal base for a wildlife holiday, offering delicious food and drink and comfortable boutique bedrooms. Here are a few of our favourite locations for spotting wildlife:

Richmond Park

There are several parks in the UK where you can see red deer in the wild roaming free. Richmond Park, which was established in the 17th Century is home to not only red deer but also fallow deer. Some of the other locations where you can spot deer are Bradgate Park, Lyme Park and Chatsworth Park. Known for their red fur, the main draw of the red deer are they breathtaking antlers that can grow up to a meter long.

Donna Nook

One of the most common sea mammals found in the UK is the grey seal. The best time to see them is during the birth season in Autumn. Donna Nook offers a great place to view this creatures with thousands of them living in this area.

Portrack Marsh

After nearly vanishing from the UK in the 1970's Otter numbers are growing due to special conservation efforts. One of the best places to see them in the wild is Portrack Marsh, these semi-aquatic animals live in freshwater locations and communicate with high pitch sounds.

Poole Harbour Islands

Red squirrels are native to the UK, however their numbers have been dramatically affected by the introduction of the grey squirrel. Even though they are known for their red fur the best way to distinguish between the squirrels is their size. Red squirrels are much smaller than grey ones. It can be very hard to spot red squirrels but the best places to see them are Poole Harbour Islands, Cumbria and Northumberland.
