  • Children's climbing frame and slide with the trees at Silverlake

    The Island

    Tucked away amongst the untouched foliage of the Warmwell Heathland, The Island is a safe haven for the whole family. The secluded spot encourages children to run free and adults to be at one with nature. Read a gripping novel or take a dip in the refreshing eco-pool whilst the children climb, slide and zip through the trees. Then build a campfire, toast some marshmallows together and let the little ones relax in our forest tipi. When ready to set off again, follow one of many bicycle routes and walking trails leading to adventures new.

    Outer Heath

    A wonderful place for wildlife spotting, the lowland heath supports a wide range of plants, insects, birds and animals. Our own Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI) is an important habitat for wildlife conservation, as is Warmwell Heath in the far distance, with Special Protected Area status. Small herds of sika deer often shelter in The Hollow and graze quietly on the heath. The peaceful landscape also attracts birds such as the song thrush, tree pipit, green woodpecker, linnet and nightjar.
