Calling all wildlife lovers and nature fans, we have the guided walk just for you!

  • Booking essential

Join us for a walk across the White Peak spotting and identifying wildlife with our experienced guide.

Perfect for families, the walk is approximately 4 miles over fields up Bunster Hill and occasionally rocky terrain. Accompanied children aged 8 years and over welcome. Unfortunately this is a dog free walk due to the nature of wildlife spotting.
