Book a Countryside activity

We run a variety of walks and activities throughout the year at various sites

Whether you're interested in wildlife, conservation, or your local countryside, you'll find something for you, your family and friends to enjoy.

Walks and activities begin at the times advertised, so please arrive ten minutes early to avoid disappointment. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

We do require payment in advance as we don't have the means to accept payment on the day.

Very rarely, we have to cancel events. We will let you know and start to process your refund as soon as we can. If you need to cancel, we will give refunds if you provide one week’s notice to the event. Any cancellations later than this are unable to be refunded.
