The Polesden Lacey estate dates back to Roman times. It includes two working farms, ancient woodlands, historic farmsteads and rolling downland, offering a diverse range of places for wildlife to live.
Although nature is resting, there is plenty to enjoy out on the estate in winter. Trees stripped of their leaves cast skeletal shadows on frosty ground. Enjoy bright purple crocuses that add a splash of colour to the ground and the bright Robins hopping along the branches above you.
