Rewilding in the Cotswolds

Green shoots....

We are blessed in this part of the Cotswold's to be surrounded by an abundance of nature and wonderful open spaces - right on our own green doorstep (of over 220 acres)  over a period of the last 25 years slowly nature has been given the space to "rewild" through wildflower planting and organic farming practices.  More recently in 2012 the planting of over 200 native trees and the creation of a new woodland area brought excited news of  an increasing number of rare and endangered farmland birds spotted within our grounds as well as an abundance of butterflies, moths and wildflowers.  As the nature around us has been given the space to flourish many of the Calcot team are now on a mission to enhance the project further by creating and sustaining this opportunity for a better connection of the wildlife on our doorstep and to encourage our  guests to explore and enjoy our wild space.

Wild and Woody Walks

We've teamed up with our nature loving friends at Wild Carrot to offer guests a chance to play on the wild side with our "Wild & Woody Wednesdays" a family walk, talk and exploration of the Chavenage woods all led by our forest experts and Playbarn team - lots of forest fun and a bit of education thrown in too!

As well as Wild & Woody Walks we have lots of fun nature based activities happening all week in the Playbarn - look out for #30dayswild throughout June...
