So just when we thought things couldn’t get any crazier – Georgina and her family decided to go a little more ‘batty!’
This winter, through a conservation project, the whole family made and put up bat boxes to encourage the night time visitors into their woods. The boxes have gaps of different widths to accommodate various bat species and are now located on trees, in clusters in easy bat accessible locations in Hook Wood. The boxes had to be made out of special, non treated wood and put up in places that bats would find attractive. Now it is a waiting game to see if the bats, not only come to the woods, but use the boxes that have so lovingly been created.
At Spreacombe Gardens, where Georgina and family live, there are beautiful dog friendly self catering cottages where you are welcome to see the conservation project for yourself. You could take a walk through the private woods to enjoy the variety of wildlife, or pause a while to hear the buzzing of the bees and the singing of the birds. You could relax by the tranquil pond and take a moment to recharge, a rare opportunity when life is so hectic.
So if you would like to know more, please contact Georgina using the email address below, they will be delighted to hear from you.
