The 550 acres owned by The William Scott Abbott Trust are teeming with wildlife, thanks in large part to the organic techniques used by our neighbours Riverford Organic Farmers.
If you keep your eyes open and your ears peeled as you walk around the site, you’ll find evidence of rabbits, badgers and foxes. Look out for damselflies darting around the mill stream and butterflies fluttering in our garden.
High in the sky you might hear the cry of a buzzard or a spot red kite circling. From our bird hide or picnic area on the banks of the picturesque mill pond, you can also watch all sorts of wildfowl including swans, moor hens and ducks who live on the banks and the island in the pond, as well as visiting Canada geese.
