Highlights

GG Wildlife Experiences is delighted to  be bringing to you a unique Nature & Wildlife "Escape Break", set in a stunning privately owned estate called Hillfields Farm.

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you will feel relaxed and welcomed into this this calm and peaceful landscape, staying in beautifully furnished, wildlife-themed accommodation, surrounded by woodland, fields, and wide open space.
The itinerary included in the package "as standard" is already something to shout about: our starter package is anything but basic! 

First you select your room type, and all packages are quoted on a B&B basis - a breakfast hamper provided to you on arrival with an array of breakfast goodies to last your stay! As each room has it's own kitchen facilities, you can rustle up a cooked breakfast at your leisure, and as they come equipped with a mini fridge, feel free to bring a few bits to store!

Each package includes a free bottle of prosecco on arrival in your room to help you start your break and unwind too.

As for your wildlife experiences: during your stay, you will enjoy a wonderful "Woodland Trail" guided wildlife walk. This route is often full of Roe Deer, Muntjac, Birds of Prey including Red Kites, Buzzards, Kestrel, Pheasants (including the unusual Reeves Pheasant), Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Woodpeckers... and we will also be showing you active Badger Setts. If we are really lucky, the roosting Peregrines will be on the tower for us to see if the distance too.

Also included is a 90 minute Morning Chorus guided walk, where your guide Steve will help you learn about the different songs you are hearing across the estate, and how to identify the different birds from their sounds. This will be a short route around the grounds of Hillfields Farm, and will work up an appetite for your breakfast hamper on return.

There are then optional extras you can add on - if you have a camera and dabble in photography, why not book a wildlife photography session with our guide? Or a Kingfisher Spotting session, with our guide who will take you to the local River Thames locations to see these magical birds.
When in season, our evening Owl Walks prove very popular, and our Birds of Prey wildlife walks are popular all year round!
There are also a number of walking routes to choose from.

You also have access to various sections of the Hillfields Estate at your leisure without a guide, so can take some quality time in nature.

At the venue, there will often be a range of catering options available - or, there are some lovely villages nearby with cafés, pubs and restaurants.

What's not to love?

Just choose your room type in the ticket section, and select two tickets (as prices are per person and based on 2 sharing a room type). You can opt for late check out in the add-ons section.

A One Night stay can start on MONDAYS, TUESDAYS or WEDNESDAYS.

  • Charity fundraising
