Outer Heath

Lowland heathland is one of Britain’s most important habitats for wildlife conservation. Outer Heath SNCI (Site of Nature Conservation Interest) supports a wide range of plants, birds, insects and mammals and is a wonderful place to come wildlife spotting. Warmwell Heath in the far distance is a Special Protected Area because of the wildlife it supports. There are three different species of Heather at Silverlake, which all provide wonderful colour to Outer Heath in late summer/autumn when the lilac/purple flowers are in bloom. Many birds can be seen here including several of conservation concern such as Song thrush, Tree pipit, Green woodpecker, Linnet and Nightjar. The Nightjar may be heard churring from a nearby tree on a summer evening. These rare birds roost during the day and become active at night, feeding on night-flying insects such as moths. Look out for the Sika Deer as they graze quietly on the heath, small herds often rest in the shelter of The Hollow.

The Island

The Island, tucked away amongst the untouched foliage of the Warmwell Heathland, is a safe haven for the whole family. This hidden gem in the woods is a gorgeous secluded spot for children to run free and adults to be at one with nature. Watch your children climb, slide and zip through the trees whilst you read a gripping novel or take a refreshing dip in the Eco-pool. Then when the kids are sufficiently tired, build a camp fire and relax in our vintage 1950's Airstream Caravan. When you are ready to set off again there are many bicycle routes and walking trails leading from this point but be warned, once you see this idyllic spot for yourself,  you may not want to leave.  

On The Water

Silverlake's myriad of beautiful lakes will offer the perfect opportunity to set sail on a Summers day for a fun filled adventure with the entire family. Float atop the serene, still water and listen to the sounds of the Great British Countryside whilst letting all worries and doubts melt away. Canoes, kayaks and sailing boats drifting in perfect harmony with nature.
