Enjoy a family outing to Woolbeding countryside and see our newborn Herdwick lambs in the parkland. Keep an eye open for brimstone and orange tip butterflies as they flutter by.
Woolbeding wood is in bloom with beautiful bluebells and other spring flowers. The warm spring sun attracts many reptile species including adders emerging from hibernation.
The countryside is bursting with birdsong. Be delighted by the woodlarks tuneful song and catch a glimpse of a tree pipit. On the common you can hear nightjars churring after dusk.
The dry heath land of Woolbeding common is a perfect habitat for bell heather. Tiger beetles lurk on the sandy tracks hunting down prey among the reddish-purple heather.
