WILD CATTLE CAR PARKING
There is only one parking area for your Wild Cattle Tour which is on the track just past St Peter’s Church. The Warden, or one of her helpers, will be on hand to meet you at the newly refurbished Visitor Centre and Wild Cattle gift shop, where quirky souvenirs are for sale. From there you will be escorted to the Cattle Park, through the woods, where you might see Red Squirrels, Roe and Fallow Deer or Green Woodpeckers.
Access into the Park will be from one of several possible points, depending on where the cattle are grazing. It is likely that you will not have to walk far, but some days there will be a bit of a stroll in order to get close to the cattle. How close will depend on the mood of the cattle and will be at the Warden’s discretion.
The Park and Visitor Centre normally open before Easter and remain open 7 days a week through to the end of the October half term week.
It is usually possible to visit the Wild Cattle out of season. We can also accommodate special interest groups who would like to access the cattle after the Park has closed for the day or out of season. This can only be done by prior arrangement and at the discretion of the Warden. Phone Ellie at 01668 215250 to check availability and visitors fees.
We can also accommodate visitors with mobility issues by prior arrangement only and at the discretion of the Warden. Please allow a minimum of at least 24 hours notice. Please phone Ellie at 01668 215250.
