Spot the resident wildlife
The trees in Dunsland park support many rare lichens and provide a rich habitat for wildlife. Colourful blue bells and primroses can be seen in spring and you may hear the rustle of doormice and roe deer. Look out for dippers and sparrow hawks too.
Enjoy a picnic
Where the house once stood is a great place for a picnic with views out towards the parkland. Its a great place to sit and relax with the sounds of birds and insects all around you. Children of all ages will love to explore the remains of Dunsland: each time you go you will see something new.
Meet the new residents
In September 2010, the Holsworthy Beekeepers started a lease with us for a small paddock behind the stableblock at Dunsland House. The aim of the site is for it to be teaching apiary and the new resident bees will help bring Dunsland's orchards and flower meadows to life.
